Interstellar was alright.

To start with, the opening was very clunky. Obviously some exposition was necessary but it wasn't done naturally at all. Here, meet Cooper, just your average, every day engineer-scientist-quantum-physicist-drone-programmer-explorer-pioneer-farmer-pilot. Avoiding information dumps isn't really either Nolan's strong suit and while later on, especially on the space ship, expository dialogue is definitely necessary considering the subject matter, it still comes across as awkward. Cooper is occasionally an expert on things that should be beyond him (which, of course, he conveniently explains for you), while at other times he's completely clueless about things that he should really know about in his position (which, of course, somebody else conveniently explains for you). Cooper isn't the only one guilty of this though, everybody else on the spaceship likewise seem very ill-prepared for such a trip.

Speaking of characters who aren't Cooper, everybody else's characterisation is terrible. You don't know anything at all about two members of the crew, and somehow you're meant to care about one of their completely avoidable deaths (come on, he got to the ship first, he could have easily gotten in without getting in the way of TARS)? Somehow you're also meant to care about My Cocaine's death (which I'll get to in a moment) because he's a father of somebody? They're not even shown to have a close relationship or anything, it seemed more just an excuse to make a big reveal (which I'll also get to in a moment). His daughter, Anne Hathaway's character, also doesn't seem to have much of a personality until it turns out that hey, she's actually in love with this person you've never met. Even this "aspect" of her otherwise bland character seems to just have been added in as a lazy way to flesh her out and add unnecessary conflict. On the subject of unnecessary conflict, both the children, Murph and Tom, make really irrational decisions. When Murph tells Tom that he should move to save his family, he gets really upset because... who knows? And then even though he's given up hope on his dad, it's magically all okay later on when, after burning his crops, Murph tells him some nonsense about "hey, it was him all along, it was him, our father sob". Prior to that of course, Murph's been holding a grudge against Cooper for like three decades, even though she knew for a large chunk of that what he was up to, after she began work at NASA. This relationship gets all sorted out when she has her magical realisation that the ghost was Cooper all along even though that's just a huge leap of faith and there's nothing to indicate that might be the case, unless, of course, it was ~love~ (which, yes, I'll get to in a moment too).

Back to the death bed scene. It had terrible sound mixing as you struggled to understand what My Cocaine was saying at all, but even worse it lacked any emotional significance as mentioned above, instead serving to make the reveal that he never wanted to go with Plan A all along. Of course, like all final words, it also ends with a very convenient moment where, instead of letting Murph know that her father didn't know anything about this, he decides to recite a poem because you gotta have that pointless ambiguity and conflict. This big reveal about it ends up removing any tension that might have happened when you get told the same twist later by Matt Damon; there's no emotional impact as you were just told that ten minutes ago and you've had that whole time to let it sink in. Instead, you're just sitting there for a couple of minutes waiting for the characters on screen to come to terms with it.

Now to the script. The script was terrible. The expository dialogue was really bad, as mentioned above, and there were just so many cheesy lines in it. All the idealistic things that were being spouted out just made me roll my eyes, with all the "we're pioneers, humanity was born here, but we weren't meant to die here" crap. And of course love transcends time and space and everything. Anne Hathaway knows that one planet is better than the other because of ~love~. The whole reason Cooper can contact Murph and all that is because of ~love~. Love conquers all, man.

For some more minor things, using Morse code to be able to communicate data related to astrophysics and then magically using this to "solve" gravity is just dumb. Messing with time didn't always work out like somebody casually waiting for 23 years and then acting like it's nothing when they see humans for the first time again, or how Jason Bourne can sprint back to the station in five minutes when it clearly took at least an hour to walk from. A lot of the things with planets wouldn't really work: all the waves stuff, how shallow the water is and their drop, solid ice clouds, the fact that they can escape from a planet with 130% gravity just in their spaceship, but whatever, I've tried to avoid criticising the science because it's not really a big deal and even though it's sort of set up as being a realistic film, it's still just a movie. Besides, the science is mostly theoretical and speculation anyway so who knows, they might not be wrong about anything at all (they are). How come nobody cares what Cooper got up to in the 100 years he was gone? Also that's not what Murphy's law is.

Of course, it does a lot right, in particular the visual effects were really good and the score was absolutely outstanding, it definitely added a lot to the atmosphere, as did the use of silence. The docking, the way the takeoff was handled, entering the wormhole and some other scenes were really well-done too. TARS was great.

Now, despite having written all that, I'd still recommend watching it, especially in a cinema. I can definitely admire the film's scope and I'm really glad that somebody's able to attempt something like this while still having it be considered mainstream cinema. However, the people who are saying it's one of the best films of all time are absolutely kidding themselves; I'm yet to see Insomnia, but otherwise Interstellar is Nolan's second worst film, ahead of only TDKR. Of course, the fact that I've written so much about it obviously means I care and it certainly was thought-provoking and visually splendid, so even if I had a lot of issues with it, you should watch it if you haven't already and who knows, maybe you'll love it. At the very least, it's definitely Nolan's most ambitious film to date.

I finally got around to watching Interstellar after all this time last night and boy... I thought that the movie was just fantastic. I'm kind of baffled at why there is so much hate for the movie. There are maybe a couple of plot holes and inconsistencies here and there while some things go beyond the scope of "believable science" but damn if it isn't one hell of an enjoyable movie.

It's definitely on the long side but I was so engrossed throughout the entire movie that I just didn't care. Great performances by the McCounaghey and Anne Hathaway in this one along with a fantastic soundtrack. Don't listen to all the hate and watch it if you're up for one hell of an adventure (albeit a long one).

For such a long movie, I never get tired of watching it; and I am not someone who watches movies over and over again. I love Interstellar.

loading replies

The only thing saving this movie from a 2/10 are its audiovisuals, everything else is scientifically inaccurate fiction filled with the most overused emotional and plot beats. Nothing is explained, nothing makes sense.Just pretentious shlock.

loading replies

While it isn't a perfect film and the ending could have been improved, Interstellar nevertheless is an ambitious, character driven, epic space drama that offers fantastic visuals and terrific performances and is a true heir to 2001 a space odyssey.

loading replies

I'm not a fan of Space Movies. And this film does not make it better. Towards the end of the film is too crazy. The special effects are really great, but that's about it.

loading replies

The best film I have ever seen. It is as much a majestic piece of art as an open door to the questions of science. It will break your heart and the next second it will take you to the most beautiful places, to the limits of reality and imagination; the place they meet to become science, and maybe, the future. A must watch.

loading replies

The basic idea behind this film is quite good, it's just that the script was obviously written by a typical hollywood idiot. A former Nasa pilot that is 'so called' perfect to lead a mission into deep space after he stumbles in the door? Or the 'so called' genius who spends 23 years doing nothing?
I wouldn't even mind if they remade this film completely, left the script and acting exactly the same, but can they please get some actors in that can actually speak?! OPEN YOUR MOUTHS AND ARTICULATE!!! I had to turn the English subtitles on just to understand what everyone was saying!
Yes good visuals and the sound effects were quite good, but if I can't hear the dialogue, what's the bloody point?!

Amazing film of this year! Mixing of all sciences, astronomy, physics, chemistry...it's a movie to be watched more than once. Thank you Matthew and Anne for their roles in this film

A brilliant '2001 space oddisee'-like real science fiction movie we haven't seen since the first Matrixx movie.

Easily the best movie of 2014! Exceptionally clever and well made. The style is new and refreshing. The story and characters were right on.

I purposelly avoided watching this movie for the longest time. I felt like it was too overly hyped, and that it would not meet expectations. Today, I sat down and watched one of the best films I had ever seen.

Every bit of this movie was amazing. This is one of those movies that will change you. If you have not experienced that feeling yet, then you are in for a treat. I laughed, I teared up a little bit. The only thing I regret more, is that I did not travel through time and tell myself to watch this movie in Imax.

9/10, I'm not even going to post about the movie its self. Watch it, with little to no distraction if possible.

"Interstellar" is Nolan's best work so far. Absolutely brilliant with a perfect balance between the narrative and the amazing technique and skills of one of the best directors of the modern cinema. An emotional/humanely journey escorted by a flawless photography and Zimmer's stunning score. Audacious, intelligent and masterful. "Love is the one thing that transcends time and space". Love is the ultimate dimension.

This movie, the story, the science and the insight will stay with me for the rest of my life! It was beautiful!

With a score of 8.8/10 on iMDb I was somehow expecting more. yes good effects, yes good performances but glacial pace of progress allowed the fidgets to set in.

Overly long and for me too confusing. Best movie of 2014 for some, but not for me!

loading replies

Visually is great, and the direction -as always- of Nolan is excellent but I have to say that the plot wasn't too good and that the Nolan brothers have a big imagination but maybe they went too far with this one... I liked that they show the things about Albert Einstein's theories of gravity fields and all that but I don't know. I although would have like it to see what happens with Brand and what she did, I'll have to assume that what they show at the end is her set in the colony and all that.

most epic movie ever watched

loading replies

Definitely the best movie of 2014 and in my opinion one of the best Sci-Fi movies out there. Nolan is up there with Stanley Kubrick in the Sci-Fi genre with this one.

loading replies

So... we live in an age where Nolan now has THREE movies in the IMDB Top 20. Figures the word masterpiece is thrown around. I'm not exactly sure anymore what the requirement to achieve that is but I fail to see how Interstellar can be one by objective means anyways.
The movie to it's credit is ambitious and has some visually impressive scenes in there but the it isn't really that much about interstellar travels but is loaded with very simple 'mainstream' american themes which lead to the excessive runtime.
The problem the people on earth have to overcome and leads to everything happening is actually interesting but is handled very poorly, painting mankind as rather stupid in progress but whatever your excuse is for having to make plot happen... right?
I don't want to get spoiler-y so lets just say that after an hour it gets to magic land and is riddled with exposition, dumb scientists and predictable waste of screentime. The whole thing stands on such a weak foundation it is sad really. No matter the scale, I don't think I recently saw something as full of plotholes as this.
I'm not calling the movie terrible but it's a flawed mixture of things other movies did better.

Don't deserve all the 10 he got !

Can't describe in words i mean its just the best space movie i ever watched till now ive watched it like 15times lol

loading replies

Wow! First let me say, that this wasn't first time I tried to watch it, because it's kind of a slow start and it didn't help that I knew it would be almost 3 hours, as I am not a fan of long movies.. But I am so glad that this time I watched through as it was so so so good! Once the story gets going it's really interesting journey of hope and survival. And kind of sad too, because of the family.
I am so happy that this movie was recommended to me (several times!), really enjoyed it.

I am so conflicted about this film. Beautiful moments interspersed with bad writing. Argh.

I avoided this movie like the plague because it looked so, so, so boring. Then I finally got around to seeing it and it was great. And touching. I like this more than Inception. I'm not crazy about Inception.

Really great movie with great effects. Some parts especially near the end progressed way too fast in my opinion. Overall great movie.

The plot is intense...I'm still thinking about it one night after watching the movie. All the stars for the photography and scenography. It was amazing!

Well basically Nolan brothers managed to give a heart to "2001 A Space Odissey". That's all you need to know about this movie. And yes, it is just amazing.

Story, acting and photography was great.
That's all what I can say. I'm still stunned from the experience.

loading replies

I didn't like it much. Actually I considered leaving the cinema once every hour or so.

Interstellar is a part-time apocalyptic movie, part-time family drama, part-time 2001 make over, part-time enterprise and part-time starwars movie (funny robot, eh). So it committs to nothing at all. It also fails to have a strong message.

I didn't like the 2001 inspired score. I guess this contributed heavily to my not liking the movie.

“I need to fix this before I go.”

You have to talk to me. So, don’t tell me no.

I need to exist – I can’t be their ghost,

I have to go, because I love you the most.

You have a strong heart – Don’t let it crack,

I love you forever, and I am coming back…!

No time or space can separate us,

But you know gravity and what it does.

Out there, time is gonna run more slow,

But I’ll do all I can to keep my vow.

This is not a goodbye – don’t see this in that track,

I love you forever, and I am coming back…!

I know what you mean – but I just can’t S.T.A.Y,

Because ‘they’ did choose me – This is the only way.

I may be travelling miles away – thousand or lakh,

But that will not stop me from seeing you back.

Because it is your love that I am going to pack.

I love you forever, and I am coming back…!

This is my favourite movie. It has everything. Survival, sci-fi, action, horror, drama. Movie can be about anything you want. If you want it to be about space explorations it will be, if you want it to be about romance between two lost souls it will be. All in all it has true argents that helped me get into science world...

Rewatched "Interstellar" for the first time in 4K now and what can I say...It's my all-time favorite. What a brilliant movie Christopher Nolan made. The story is intriguing, the special effects are out of this world and the Soundtrack is one of the most beautiful scores I've ever heard. Love the cast too btw.

And I really recommend watching this film in 4K. The IMAX scenes are just mind blowing.

It looks beautiful, sounds beautiful, and an all around amazing movie. Everything from the story, to the characters, to the visuals and soundtrack was top-notch and made Interstellar a great and immersive experience.

Words cannot describe. I always tear up when Cooper sees Murph after 23 years and when he finally meets her at the hospital. Visuals are absolutely stunning and the music... Well. You know what Hans Zimmer can do. Watched it multiple times and will do in the future for sure. Highly recommended.

The first time I had seen Interstellar, I had so many "issues" to complain about. The flaws, illogical elements - too much of a burden for a rating higher than 7. Than I watched it a second time a year later, and a third time right now. The past frustrations don't matter that much anymore (while still valid) and there is just appreciation for a wonderful story about humans.

That is a super fabulous movie
Actually one of the Best movies I ever watched

Great movie. Wanted to watch it for over a year but only got to watch it now.
Nice scientific detailing and touching moments.
The plot on the other hand wasnt all that great

its so complex abd confusing but the end of the movie is damn good

If you get past the potential believability problem of this movie it is far more enjoyable. So, watch it and put your reality check in park. Just enjoy the ride; and man what a ride! #ShiftvW8

So... great acting and the effects where equally great. The story was good and new (afaik) but it somehow didn't draw me. Liked it but will probably never watch it again. But do watch it. At least once.

I love Nolan, and this is a fact. I find it a brilliant director, perhaps controversial, but brilliant. Interstellar is a real journey in the universe. Exceptional actors, dubbing unusually perfectly timed, physical theories reproduced in detail (who will see the film will understand) and an almost obsessive attention to detail, combined with an exceptional direction that Nolan has accustomed us, already make Interstellar the movie of his year. To give that extra, though, and make Interstellar a masterpiece that will remain in history, is the soundtrack of the master Hans Zimmer which is the best part of the film, not to demerits of the other sectors, but it is really something exceptional, capable to accompany the most of every scene and then suddenly interrupted by the deafening silence of space.

loading replies

Good

loading replies

It's an excellent story, with excellent acting, and excellent photography. the only thing holding it back is the script. When exploring things that are illogical and comparing them to things that are strictly logical you either have to be quite vague about it or you have to pick the absolute perfect words to explain it. I do not have a problem with doing either of these but any time any character started spouting shit about Love being the only thing to transcend time it ruined the immersion completely and I (a person who has no scientific training whatsoever) could even tell that Nolan didn't know where the fuck he was going with it. The enormous leaps in logic aside, it is a very good movie.
