Inception

Stupidity: Cobb convinces Fischer to enter a dream saying it's Browning's dream. A couple of scenes later he says it's Eames' dream, in front of Fischer, who doesn't know Eames was impersonating Browning. (00:51:35)

Suggested correction: Firstly, the Browning that the team "catches" is not Eames, it is a projection of Fischer's subconscious. Eames was only impersonating Browning in the first level. Secondly, Cobb doesn't say they are going into Browning's dream, he says they should put him under and do to him what the kidnappers were planning to do to Fischer. That is, use Fischer as the subject of the next dream level. Fischer knows that Eames is the dreamer on the third level, he even jokingly asks why Eames couldn't dream of a beach. But he thinks that Eames is part of Mr. Charles' security team. He believes that Browning is to be the subject on the last level when in fact, Fischer is the subject on each level. Because of how effective the Mr. Charles gambit was, Fischer is unaware that the team has been fighting his subconscious all along.

Revealing mistake: When Ariadne is pulling the two huge mirrors close together underneath the bridge with Cobb, watch her when she is closing the second mirror. She steps over something even though there is nothing present for her to step over. There must have been a green screen frame there for her to step over.

Cobb: We need the heir of a major corporation to dissolve his father's empire.
Eames: Well, you see, right there you have various political motivations and anti-monopolistic sentiment and so forth, but all that stuff is at the mercy of your subjects own prejudice. What you have to do is start at the absolute basic.
Cobb: Which is what?
Eames: The relationship with the father.

Question: Me and my friend have debated this each time we have watched the movie and I finally decided to ask the question here to see who is right. When they are discussing their plan and saying they need the plane for it, Saito says "I bought the airline... It seemed neater." My interpretation of this is that he bought out all the tickets on that particular flight so the plane would be empty and weed out risk of interruption from other passengers, as doing that made it so there are no other passengers. But my friend thinks he means he bought the entire brand of the airline, so that he now owns the company that has that plane. Like buying out SouthWest Airlines as a company or something. So who is right? What did Saito mean? Did he buy out all the tickets for that flight, or did he buy the whole airline company?

Chosen answer: He bought out the actual airline company. If he'd bought out all the tickets for that specific journey he'd have said "I bought out the flight" or similar. It's a deliberately over the top moment of exuberance to highlight exactly how rich Satio is. I'm afraid that it is your friend who is correct, sorry.
