If you have not seen it, or are not planning to see it I will say, see it now. This movie is insanely good. It manages to be an intellectual movie that makes you think, while still never failing to entertain. There's high levels of action and suspense, but also plenty of drama and emotion. The theater we were in had the most diverse group of people I've ever seen at a movie ranging from age 16 to probably 80, men and women, all different walks of life, and everyone seemed to walk out entertained. It honestly pretty much has something for everyone, including a few comedic moments that caused me to laugh out loud. I would definitely recommend seeing it.

Inception was able to tell a story in a dream like world without ever getting too philosophical or outrageous like The Matrix did. Christopher Nolan never tried to get showy or trippy with the dream sequences. One of the character even has a speech about how in real dreams you don't realize there's anything out of the ordinary until you wake up. That's how they handled this complex idea of a dream world without going overly sci-fi. If you enjoyed Nolan's other movies like Memento, The Prestige or Batman Begins/Dark Knight, you'll love Inception just as much.
