    No movie will ever be considered truly original. Every movie will be compared to another it's just the way it goes in Hollywood. Inception was enjoyable because it wasn't a remake, based on an old tv show, or a formulaic romantic comedy. Is Inception similar in some ways to other movies sure but is it more original and creative than 90% of the movies that came out this year- yes it is.

    Avatar wasn't that original either …
    (not to mention every Hollywood remake ever made)

    All movies are similar , and it's not a bad thing. That's just how it is. They are inspired by something that we all can see or experience so they will never be "original".

    At least Nolan hasn't been involved with the death of anyone on his set unlike Landis.

    Interesting, I thought they were trying to rip off that old Christopher Walken movie Brainstorm. But regardless, Inception was just terrible, laughable, and unwatchable. 'Dream within a dream' get the fuck out of here. lol

    honestly, all movies arent original.. Its normally a branch off from a Shakespeare play. Avatar wasn't even original, I got a Pocahontas feeling when watching it, but rather than native american, they were an African tribe.And the typical white man saves the world. Anyways. the movie was.

    inception wasnt original
    there is a big difference between being inspired or paying homage or just by coincidence having a similar idea
    but ripping something off with the intent to pass it off as your own original idea is WRONG

    Re: Abbs5522 – Well said. There is no way you can compare Dreamscape and Inception, even if the concept is the same. John Landis made a weak point.

    Maybe not original but well done. Looks more like Ludwig Von Drake than Dreamscape. So why a success? Probably the Leo subplot.

    about as similar as all vampire movies, as in similar but not really at all… what a useless post…

    I don't really care if it's not 100% original…it's a great movie. Case closed!
