Is Inception a Remake?

Is Inception a remake of another movie?
Remember the movie Dreamscape? That cheesy 80's scifi movie, where Dennis Quaid has the power to enter your dreams? It was very similar to Inception.

That old film was the first thing I thought of when I saw the Inception trailer. There is also another similar movie named Paprika.

Check it out for yourself and draw your own conclusions about Inception being a remake.

No, Inception is not a remake of another movie. I've seen both Dreamscape and Inception and they're both different.

What the two films have in common is a central conceit, or plot point -- in this case, both films feature a man who can enter other people's dreams and, in doing so, learn things about them or change the course of their lives.

Anyone who's seen both films knows that they're two completely different films; despite certain thematic elements. Inception is an original movie, not a remake.

Dark City is in no way like Inception.
