Cobb: What is the most resilient parasite? Bacteria? A virus? An intestinal worm? An idea. Resilient… highly contagious. Once an image has taken hold of the brain, it’s almost impossible to eradicate. A statement that is fully formed – fully understood – that sticks; right in there somewhere.

Now, come to the main article, let’s talk about the top 15 movies like Inception.
1. Fight Club
5. The Matrix
8.The Thirteen Floor
Fight Club Is the all-time best movie in this genre; the Guardian saw it as an omen for change in American political life and described its visual style as ground-breaking. The film later found commercial success with its DVD release, establishing Fight Club as a cult classic and causing media to revisit the movie. On the tenth anniversary of the film’s release, The New York Times dubbed it the “defining cult movie of our time.
A depressed man (Edward Norton) suffering from insomnia meets a strange soap salesman named Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt) and soon finds himself living in his squalid house after his perfect apartment is destroyed. The two bored men form an underground club with strict rules and fight other men fed up with their mundane lives. Their perfect partnership frays when Marla (Helena Bonham Carter), a fellow support group crasher, attracts Tyler’s attention.
Thriller Movies like Inception
A lot of movies waste time getting to the point. But Source Code, directed by Duncan Jones, gets straight to the crux of the matter.
Helicopter pilot Colter Stevens (Jake Gyllenhaal) is part of a top-secret military operation that enables him to experience the last few minutes in the life of Sean Fentress, a man who died in a commuter-train explosion.
The purpose of Colter’s mission is to learn the identity of the bomber and prevent a similar catastrophe. As Colter lives Sean’s final moments, he becomes more confident that he can avoid the first tragedy from occurring — as long as he doesn’t run out of time.
It feels as if there is no beginning— there is a middle part, and then one of the most gratifying cinematic endings I have ever seen. The movie starts with Colter Stevens, a US military pilot who wakes up on a train to Chicago to find out that he’s in someone else’s body.
The last thing he remembers is his plane crashing after an encounter with Afghan militants. How did he get here?
As he tries to come to terms with everything that’s happening, a bomb detonates, and everything ends. To his horror, he finds himself in an even more perplexing situation: He is injured, immobilized, and in some sort of cockpit. Was the train real? Or is this real?
The only problem with time-travel movies is that there are way too many plot holes. There will be some things in this movie that leave you puzzled, and you may never manage to wrap your head around them. But it is quite perfect in that sense, as there is a reason behind even the smallest events.
Sleep Dealer is an exciting view of a future where immigration and globalization have become huge issues. People are divided, and government organizations are leveraging citizens’ confusion to control them.
Being a low-budget movie, some things like special effects leave you wanting more, but it shouldn’t let you stop watching this gem of a film. With its well-developed characters, heart-touching story, and convincing acting, Sleep Dealer cements its place as one of the best sci-fi movies like Inception.
If not for anything else, watch The Machinist see Christian Bale’s dedication to his craft. He lived on apples and coffee for months to get this freakishly skinny physique. It looks even more impressive when you see his hulky body in Batman Begins, a movie released not long after The Machinist.
With a protagonist struggling to deal with his flawed perception of reality, The Machinist has a surprisingly similar Inception theme. Christian Bale’s character is suffering from insomnia, which is causing him to behave strangely. Eventually, his quirks scare his friends and co-workers away.
What’s real and what’s not? Just like Inception, it will keep you guessing till the end and will reward you for your patience with a mind-blowing conclusion.
What if everything we see is just a simulation? What if it’s not real? How can you differentiate what’s real from what’s not? The Matrix tackles these questions head-on.
It was in 1999. Neo, a computer hacker, lives two lives— one as a hacker and another as a regular guy with a day job. He comes into contact with a group that claims to know the real truth about the world he lives in. He refuses to believe them at first, but he meets them again, becoming increasingly convinced that something is going on beyond his understanding.
He eventually meets Morpheus, who offers him two pills— a red and a blue one. Taking the blue medicine means everything will go back to normal, and he will forget this conversation ever took place. The red pill will help him understand the truth.
That’s when the whole world turns upside down for our guy. He realizes that his entire life was a mere simulation created by intelligent machines. There are billions of others like him still waiting to be woken up from the slumber.
Will he be able to free them and emerge victorious in a war between humans and machines? (I also have recommendations for movies like The Matrix.)
John Murdoch (Rufus Sewell) awakens alone in a strange hotel to find that he is wanted for a series of brutal murders. The problem is that he can’t remember whether he committed the murders or not. For one brief moment, he is convinced that he has gone crazy. Murdoch seeks to unravel the twisted riddle of his identity. As he edges closer to solving the mystery, he stumbles upon a fiendish underworld controlled by a group of ominous beings collectively known as the Strangers.
When a storm upturns their yacht, a group of passengers jumps on board a ship close by. However, they soon realize that they are in greater danger aboard the mysterious vessel.
How in the world is this movie rated only 6.9 on IMDB? Yes, if you were going to judge a film by its trailer, you’d probably rate it as mediocre, but I urge you to not make that mistake.
He less you know about this flick before you see it, the better. I think it’s a true masterpiece. Watch Triangle with an open mind, and you’ll be utterly surprised by its depth and beauty.
The story revolves around a group of people traveling at sea. Struck by weird weather, they decide to jump on another ship, only to make matters worse.
Revealing why it’s like Inception would spoil the whole movie. Just know that you’ll never guess the ending, as it carries that same “what the fu**” factor.
The Thirteenth Floor
|The Thirteenth Floor
A man awakens to discover a bloody shirt in his house and his boss murdered the night before. Did he do it? Why can’t he remember? “The Thirteenth Floor” is a sci-fi thriller that explores the ominous possibility of computer-simulated universes, where people only believe they are real.
Set in 1990s Los Angeles, The Thirteenth Floor is a science fiction movie set inside simulated worlds.
A simulation was set in 1937 by a genius programmer. Soon after creating it, though, he is killed, and all his secrets are buried with him. All that’s left is a message that will decide everyone else’s fate living in that world.
The protagonist, Douglas Hall, is the genius programmer’s close friend and also the prime suspect in his murder. The evidence against him is strong. Eventually, he begins to question his own innocence. Is he the one who murdered his own friend? Why was his friend murdered? What is the message?
Everything becomes more apparent when he finds out that that it’s really 2024. The 1990s world he thought he lived in is a simulation itself. It’s actually a simulation within a simulation. They thought they were in charge, but it’s someone else who is pulling strings. Will Hall manage to find the real killer and motive? You’ll have to watch to find out more.
A mother is desperately trying to protect her kids from the outside world while hoping her husband will finally come home after WW2. With three strange servants’ arrival, things start going awry as her daughter starts noticing strange events and intruders everywhere. With every passing day, their mansion becomes increasingly haunted.
Although it’s traditional horror for more than three-quarters of this movie, the twist, in the end, is pretty unique and takes some time to sink in. You will be thinking about it for a long time.
I am not going to reveal much. All I will say is, if you are looking for a twisted movie with some bone-chilling horror elements, give The Others a go.
The implausible escape of a brilliant murderess brings U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his new partner (Mark Ruffalo) to Ashecliffe Hospital, a fortress-like insane asylum located on a remote, windswept island. The woman appears to have vanished from a locked room, and there are hints of terrible deeds committed within the hospital walls. As the investigation deepens, Teddy realizes he will have to confront his own dark fears if he hopes to make it off the island alive.
