Reality goes out the window as MG takes on a double-dip of unconscious action: 1984's B-movie funhouse Dreamscape vs Christopher Nolan's catnip-for-nerds Inception! And though they were made on opposite ends of the budgetary spectrum, we think that each of these similarly-themed high-concept films has its own charms. For instance, Inception's Oscar-winning VFX are notable for their heavy use of old-school practical trickery, while Dreamscape is one of only three movies in the 1980s to feature both Max Von Sydow and snake-headed bad guys in major roles! So break out your tops, MG fans, and see if they don't stop spinning before our epic-length analysis is through!
