Movies Like Inception

Inception was an awesome movie, but also confusing at first. I had to watch it several times to get it. I am going to recommend some movies like Inception so that you can get your sci-fi appetite in. | Source

The Matrix(1999)

Thomas Anderson(Keanu Reeves) is a computer programmer known as "Neo". He enjoys learning about references to "The Matrix" that is on his computer. He is told by an infamous hacker Trinity that someone by the name of Morpheus would know the answer to his solution. However, Agent Smith decides to interfere and stop that from happening. That did not stop Neo from seeking out Morpheus. Eventually, he finds him and Morpheus tells him that humans are fighting against intelligent machines that took control of Earth in the 21st century.

There are also sequels to the Matrix, so if you enjoyed this, then you will want to check out the rest of it! They are The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions.
