This movie was LONG! Unfortunately it was not interesting enough to keep me engaged for almost 3 hours. I love good sci-fi, and the scenes set in space and on other planets were amazing! Too bad that was only about 1/3 of the movie; most of the rest was interpersonal drama and I had to struggle t... Read More »

This is a terrible movie. Too long and probably originally longer because I think they edited out some things which might have made more sense. Who would believe an out of shape engineer would leave his adored children suddenly one day to pilot several flight vehicles that he had no training on to another galaxy, destination uncertain, return uncertain? Because he just happened to show up one night at an underground NASA facility and he was the "best pilot they had"? Interstellar cast that were probably persuaded this movie would serve as a warning to what our destiny might be if we don't take care of Mother Earth, but the ease with which they can find another planet and colonize it with only a handful of people planning/executing the mission would seem to have the opposite consequence. Then how do you close up the movie and tie up the ends? No, Engineer does not equal Physicist or haven't you been watching "The Big Bang Theory"? They needed to at least have one in advisory capacity on this movie. Poor Matt Damon, left behind yet again on another planet. And these people never eat.

A relatively Good movie! In some places, it can be difficult to understand the scientific jargon for the regular viewer!

If you watch movies mainly for excitement, you might skip the first few of these sentences til later. Interstellar provides an both an entertaining and useful presentation of an *integration* of many levels of consciousness - that I will call "pragmatic." However (OR, if that's not impressive enough), it accomplishes this through an examination of "realistic" and efficient management of impending and multifaceted priorities. AND it does this at an EVER quickening pace- regarding survival of the human race, while often keeping the viewer on the EDGE of one's seat with exciting life & death adventures, AND while building depth of character (and concept) through EMOTIONALLY challenging dynamics on the personal, family, and community levels. The complexity of the concepts that underlie the main plot, or at least the one regarding survival (and regarding physics of time and space,multiple dimensions, etc) might be intimidating for some, but as noted, the other plots keep it all MOVING well enough. Translating the physics (explanations of the challenges, actual or potential solutions bordering) to metaphysics, might make that part of it easier for some to relate to <smile>. One of the themes is an examination how we deal with impending doom, disillusionment, and finding "what really matters." Meanwhile, keep the tear-wiping facilities near that edge of your seat you will often be on, once "we go interstellar." Or inner-enter-interstellar. Warning, If you watch movies strictly for second-by-second titillation, just skip it altogether -- unless you would like to develop a little useful capacity to focus.

The Gravity of this Sci-Fi drama's plot Holes seems to exceed that of it's Black one.
Logic is subjected to inescapable Spaghettification.
However, the movie accomplishes a deeper purpose by portraying a profound concept our future may perhaps need to embrace. Differential existences in Space-Time Relativity.
Just as the idea of manned Spaceflight took time to permeate into our consciousness, before it could actually be accomplished...... our comprehension of linear time, from the stability of only living-out our lives together on a single planet.....will someday become inadequate.
"Interstellar" introduces a fascinating scenario requiring a paradigm shift in our thinking......
and yet, the film also demonstrates the manner in how it manifests, is still subject to an individual's values.
The moral?
In lock-step with technology, our undertaking of calculated risks is ever expanding. Our familiar notion of what constitutes COURAGE..... is sure to be disciplined by the greater challenges we will inevitably face.

A little too long, but still a good movie. Christopher Nolan delivers.

It's flawed, certainly, but its vision is undeniably appealing and ultimately the film's saving grace.

Wow... Interstellar is a classic for me! It is sweeping and emotional. The film asks a lot of substantial questions about our place on earth.

Rating system should provide an option for quarter star as half star is still over estimated. I am sorry for saying that, but it's true.

One of the stupidest sci-fi to come out in a long time. It had some moments where you are tricked into thinking it might get better, but on the whole a totally ridiculous affair. I watched it to the end just for some very bad acting - oh we are going to feel g forces now, lets make faces! sort of thing. You need to suspend all your common sense to watch this gem. There are so many holes in this it could easily be voted the worst road in Ottawa if it were paved.

Hauntingly bleak sci-fi movie. Well thought out and very well researched. One is left to wonder are the 4th-dimension beings gods?

Do not go gentle into that good night; Old age should burn and rave at close of day. Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

From IMDb:

Doyle: You can't just think about your family. You have to think bigger than that.
Cooper: I'm thinking about my family and millions of other families.

Doyle: We have a mission.
Cooper: Our mission does not work if the people on Earth are dead by the time we pull it off.

Brand: You might have to decide between seeing your children again and the future of the human race.

Cooper: Once you're a parent, you're the ghost of your children's future.

Cooper: We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.
