Wilson kicks of this morning's episode of The 404 Podcast with a glowing review of Chris Nolan's newest movie, "Inception." After watching an advanced IMAX screening last night, Wilson has several tips that'll make the experience even better, and don't worry folks--it's all SPOILER FREE! You have our guarantee that nothing of importance will come out of Wilson's mouth in this episode.

Wilson attests that "Inception" is certainly a cerebral film, but not one that leaves the audience feeling confused or asking a bunch of questions, like "Synecdoche." That said, you know that one friend in every group who constantly needs an update on what's going on in the movie? Don't invite that person to "Inception," because you'll need every bit of concentration you can muster to understand the plot.

According to Wilson, it felt like "taking the SATs and having fun at the same time." The rest of us plan to watch the movie next week, so prepare for a full review from the whole group coming soon.

CNET Audiophiliac Steve Guttenberg also joins us in the studio to give us his snarky predictions for what Steve Jobs will say in Apple's iPhone 4 press conference .

Jeff is grounded in the belief that Steve will come out and simply hand out selected nuggets of trash from his house, but who knows? Check out our CNET Live Blog for more updates as they come through the pipe!

We also have several new theme songs (plus some remixes of past submissions) to play during the second half, and there's a handful of really promising tracks today, so thanks to all the persistent musicians out there revising and resubmitting! Have a great weekend, everyone!
