Interstellar... Christopher Nolan. Matthew McConnaughey, Michael Cain, more

Anne Hathway, Jessica Chastain, and more

I got my hopes up for Prometheus, and was let down. I hope this turns out better. The trailer looks so very promising.

I’ve seen every film directed by Nolan, and have never been disappointed. This could be his masterpiece.

So, I saw this on an IMAX 70mm screen this weekend.

My reaction - that is a lot of movie. Extremely ambitious. I left thinking Nolan was trying to make his own 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Anytime you make something that ambitious, people will try to poke holes in the plot, etc. I can imagine a few, but most of them were dealt with in the movie, and people probably missed it.

Ran the full gamut of emotions, highs and lows. And oh my I was almost directly under one of those IMAX speaker stacks and it was LOUD. Visceral. My seats shook during the rocket launches, etc.

The movie wore me out. I’ve been waiting for a few days to figure out exactly what I thought about it. It’s a good movie, but not a perfect one.

If only more writer-directors were that bold and that talented. I’d go to the cinema more often.

Go see it in the cinema while you can; preferably in either 4k or IMAX. It’s worth the $.

Watch this video about the Imax 70MM - it’s pretty amazing:

I had no idea the movie rolls were that big/heavy (600 lbs!). That’s insane.

I saw this Saturday afternoon in a PDX theater. My first reaction was that I was not all that impressed. It is a long movie, but it didn’t feel that long to me. I should have waited for the DVD to pay less to see it, but I am glad I watched it. Not an instant classic.

I enjoyed it. The plot reached and was a little overly ambitious in my opinion, but I had a great experience and it’s very thought provoking.

I did think it was a little weird that (SPOILERS) Anne Hathaway’s genius scientist character went on a rant about “I know I know I know, science. And my life. And my dad’s life and research and everything we have all worked for forever. BUT MY FEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELS”

That speech was easily the worst part of the movie. Near universal scorn. It’s so bad that if you just take that out, the movie might be a classic.

mind effs.
