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 »

Of course, this Sci-Fi drama has plot holes and absurdities.
However, it accomplishes a deeper purpose by portraying a profound concept our future may perhaps need to embrace. Differential Space-Time.
Like technology, our undertaking of calculated risks is ever expanding. Our familiar notion of what constitutes COURAGE..... is sure to be disciplined by greater challenges.
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 here on Earth.....will someday become inadequate.
"Interstellar" introduces a fascinating scenario requiring a paradigm shift in our thinking......
and yet, how that manifests, is still subject to an individual's values.

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?

Sci-fi films have become increasingly thoughtful and scientifically plausible over the past decades--at least since Contact. Arrival, for instance, is a quantum improvement over the death-ray days of the 1950s and the cowboys-in-space Star Wars movies of the 1970s onward. (2001 was far ahead of its time; the shoot-'em-up, death-ray Ender's Game was retrograde.)
Interstellar is perhaps the most scientifically accurate of these latest entries, and intellectually expansive enough that you'll probably need more than one viewing to appreciate what's been accomplished here. Naturally, if you'd like to be entertained with non-stop action, Interstellar is not the movie for you.

Boring, boring, boring.

Matthew McConaughey plays a desperate ex-astronaut who leaves his children behind on a disintegrating earth while he goes in search of a planet they can escape to.

Matthew (every movie he's ever been in): "Awright, awright, awright."

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.

Apr 11, 2015

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.

"We used to look up and wonder about our place in the stars. Now we just look down and worry about our place in the dirt."
