In the near future around the American Midwest, Cooper an ex-science engineer and pilot, is tied to his farming land with his daughter Murph and son Tom. As devastating sandstorms ravage earths crops, the people of Earth realize their life here is coming to an end as food begins to run out. Eventually stumbling upon a NASA base near Cooper's home, he is asked to go on a daring mission with a few other scientists into a wormhole because of Cooper's scientific intellect and ability to pilot aircraft unlike the other crew members. In order to find a new home while Earth decays, Cooper must decide to either stay, or risk never seeing his children again in order to save the human race by finding another habitable planet.
In Earth's future, a global crop blight and second Dust Bowl are slowly rendering the planet uninhabitable. Professor Brand, a brilliant NASA physicist, is working on plans to save mankind by transporting Earth's population to a new home via a wormhole. But first, Brand must send former NASA pilot Cooper and a team of researchers through the wormhole and across the galaxy to find out which of three planets could be mankind's new home.
Upon viewing the trailers for &#39;Interstellar&#39; I was sceptical. The trailers gave away very little about the narrative and I had also heard rumours of a three hour run-time. Despite this scepticism, I had to see the film based on the wonderful films previously created by Christopher Nolan.<br/><br/>&#39;Interstellar&#39; is not like any other film I have ever seen before. Huge credit must go to Christopher Nolan and his brother Jonathan Nolan (who co-wrote the script). The cinematography is exceptional and the visuals are incredible. This is backed up by an incredible score that is dramatic when required but also beautiful to match some of the visuals. <br/><br/>The story is perhaps what surprised me the most. On the face of it Matthew McConaughey is Cooper, a loving father who must travel beyond our galaxy in search of salvation following disastrous food shortage and crop failure on Earth. Yet, by the time the credits rolled the story seemed to mean so much more than this. The narrative is dramatic, emotional and brilliantly complex. Never before have I left the cinema in such awe and pondering a films themes quite this much. To put simply, it straddles the line between science fiction and science fact perfectly.<br/><br/>Despite this, the three hour run-time is true and the film can be very complex especially towards the end. But this should not take away from the experience.<br/><br/>I would recommend this film to literally anyone who is even the slightest bit curious about what&#39;s out there or about the trials of a dystopian life.<br/><br/>10/10
An impressive spectacle. A moving SciFi drama. And yet a bit of a disappointment.<br/><br/>The arc of the plot is clever. It follows a man who risks losing his family in order to follow an ambition for space exploration and to help save the human race, but who gets caught up in the lies and machinations of his NASA colleagues and friends. There is a nice ethical strand woven in about the instinct to save yourself versus saving others.<br/><br/>The visuals are stunning. The spaceship visits three new planets, each of which is given its own dramatic character, not to mention the wormholes and black holes. Even the cornfields back home look fabulous.<br/><br/>So what was disappointing?<br/><br/>Firstly the acting. Matthew McConaughey made a dull hero and I could hardly understand his drawl. The supporting cast were so-so. The best performance is a cameo from an uncredited famous Hollywood actor (I won&#39;t spoil the surprise).<br/><br/>Secondly the duration. The film is dragged out over nearly three hours but should have been less than two.<br/><br/>Finally, the story just became too far- fetched for me. I&#39;m OK with SciFi plots that stretch the boundaries of scientific realism, but saving humanity through the power of love spanning space and time was a step too far for me.<br/><br/>I enjoyed Interstellar but it didn&#39;t live up to expectations.
I was moved by Interstellar, and there are stretches where it is as good and as pure as anything Nolan's made. You can feel just how important all of it is to him in every frame of the thing. I don't love all of the film's dramatic choices, though.
In a sense, the evolved humans act only as facilitators to allow the human race to survive and, at the same time, evolve to a higher level of existence. Fundamentally our understanding of human consciousness, will, and emotion is limited. Our current science describes the universe from an objective perspective, but we all experience the universe from unique, individual, subjective perspectives. Currently we don&#39;t know nearly enough to explain what gives rise to this subjectivity. Just as Interstellar deals with the limits of our understanding of black holes, wormholes, and the like, it seems to speculate on the possibility of real, &quot;quantifiable&quot; forces at the heart of human subjectivity. It asks the question: what if our true selves, the source of our subjective experience, exists in and affects areas outside of our current understanding of space and time? Ultimately of course the film cannot answer this question, but Cooper believes, and coincidences of plot—such as Edumund&#39;s planet being the correct spot for colonization as believed by Dr. Brand—seem to imply, that &quot;love&quot; may be one example of such capacities. Interstellar was displayed in a wide range of different types of theaters (i.e formats) including IMAX 70mm film, standard 70mm film, 35mm film, IMAX digital, 4K Digital, and standard digital. In addition, theaters screening Interstellar on film opened two days prior to their digital counterparts. This caused people who were not film-tech-literate to ask what the differences among the formats are and in which theater format was the &quot;best&quot; to see the movie. Below is a list explaining the difference between each format in layman&#39;s terms.<br/><br/>IMAX 70mm: Going to a IMAX 70mm theatre was the optimal way to see Interstellar. The movie was shot using IMAX 70mm film cameras, which are the highest resolution cameras yet devised. As such, when shown in an 70mm IMAX theatre, the sequences shot on IMAX were shown in their highest possible quality, ten times the resolution of standard projection formats, and fill the giant IMAX screens from top to bottom (as opposed to films not shot in IMAX which have black bars on the top and bottom of the screen). Interstellar opened two days early in IMAX 70mm in approximately 50 theaters across the United States<br/><br/>Standard 70mm film: A standard 70mm film theater offers an image with three times the resolution of standard projection formats. Though a 70mm theater is wide, it is not as high as a IMAX screen, and, as such, scenes of the film shot using IMAX cameras have been cropped at the top and bottom to fill the wide screen. Interstellar opened two days early in standard 70mm in approximately ten theaters across the United States.<br/><br/>IMAX Digital: IMAX digital has a picture quality that is higher than a standard theater, but lower than IMAX or 70mm. While most IMAX digital screens (those in cineplexes) are not anywhere near as large as a true 70mm IMAX screen, they are larger than a conventional theater. Therefore, when presented on digital IMAX, the sequences shot on IMAX cameras will fill the digital IMAX screens from top to bottom. However, this is not as high as a 70mm IMAX theater (an aspect ratio of up to 1.9:1. as opposed to 1.44:1). Some original (purpose-built) IMAX theaters have been converted to 4K digital projection; these combine the resolution of IMAX Digital with the aspect ratio of IMAX 70mm.<br/><br/>35mm Film: As 35mm is shown on standard theater screens, it is not as high as a IMAX screen. As such, the scenes of the film shot using IMAX cameras have been cropped at the top and bottom to fill the wide screen. However, many scenes of Interstellar were shot using 35mm film cameras. Seeing the film in that format will be preserving all the rich analog color and high resolution of the original 35mm photography. Interstellar will open two days early in 35mm film in approximately 189 theaters across the United States.<br/><br/>4K Digital: As 4K digital is shown on standard theater screens, it is not as high as a IMAX screen. As such, the scenes of the film shot using IMAX cameras have been cropped at the top and bottom to fill the wide screen. 4K digital projection produces a clear, bright, high-resolution image with absolute stability and cleanliness.<br/><br/>Standard Digital (2k DCP): As Standard Digital is shown on a standard theater screen, it is not as high as a IMAX screen. As such, scenes of the film shot using IMAX cameras have been cropped at the top and bottom to fill the wide screen. Standard digital is a quarter of the resolution of 4K digital.<br/><br/>Further Information here. As stated by Dr. Mann, despite their intelligence and physical capabilities, robots such as TARS and CASE do not have the ability to adapt and improvise in unexpected situations. For example, when Mann blows the airlock of the Endurance and Cooper attempts to dock, CASE warns him that it is impossible, yet Cooper manages to dock anyway. TARS likely wouldn&#39;t have attempted such a risky maneuver because he doesn&#39;t have a human&#39;s capacity for risk-taking that Cooper does. Another example is on Miller&#39;s Planet when the Ranger is hit by a wave and the engine is waterlogged. CASE simply wished to remain on the Ranger until the engines dried out on their own. However, Cooper sparked the engine with oxygen to start it quickly, which allowed them to escape. Had CASE or TARS been the one in command in both circumstances, it is likely that they would not have tried to dock on the Endurance or start the engines on Miller&#39;s planet, which would ultimately have led to the failure of the mission. An accretion disk&#39;s light is caused by friction, which in turn is caused by the spinning of the gas and dust orbiting a black hole. The faster the disk spins, the more friction, and thus more energy, is created. This energy radiates in the form of electromagnetic radiation (UV rays, X rays, etc.) and heat. The faster the black hole spins, the more is formed. According to Kip Thorne&#39;s book The Science of Interstellar due to Gargantua&#39;s massive size, the accretion disk only spins fast enough to form limited amounts of heat, and thus only produces small amounts of electromagnetic radiation (roughly on a solar level). The accretion disk does not actually &quot;bend over&quot; the black hole, that is simply an illusion caused by the bending of light due to Gargantua&#39;s gravity. Thus, if the Endurance remained a sufficient distance from the disk, it would be unscathed. It&#39;s never specified in the movie, but there are many hints. The father-in-law of Cooper talked about when he was a kid that new gadgets and ideas were constantly invented and Earth had six billion people. He is about 65 years old. Also, when Cooper is at the secret NASA facility, he is told in a briefing a wormhole near Saturn was discovered 48 years ago. 48 years into the future from the time this movie was released is the year 2063. So it&#39;s reasonable to assume this movie is set around the year 2065 for a nice round number. a5c7b9f00b
