    Amazing film. Intriguing, emotional and sometimes profound. Couple of key plot points were predictable but it didn’t really impact it for me.

    Christopher Nolan is at the point where he could make a cheap commercial for toilet paper and people would flock to the internet claiming it was a masterpiece.

      Knew you’d say that 😉 Look I’m no mindless superfan, I thought Dark Knight Rises was underwhelming, seriously flawed. I wouldn’t care who made this film, I thoroughly enjoyed the journey.

        I would never suggest you would 🙂

        But it is hard to find an honest opinion about Nolan’s films these days. It seems that a high % of people rate his films a 9 or 10. Regardless of the merits of the film. Which then forces a lower % to vote his films a 1 or 2 just because they want to troll the others. When the reality is his films are 6, 7’s and 8’s.

        52% of people on IMDB rated Interstellar a 10. 25% a 9. 1% a 1.
        That’s 78% who are wrong and just voting by their preconceived opinions on Nolan.

          IMDB is mostly youngster and the rating system for new films is more like a sport than anything else. In the case of Nolan his fans and distractors are playing a numbers game to manipulate chart positions.

          Personally, I do not like ratings based on marks out of x number of stars or whatever because films are art not sport or merchandise so can’t really be objectively measured in simple terms. A diver who hits or fails to hit key moves or a kettle that doesn’t work or boils water quicker than another kettle are easy to spot. Art historians don’t measure the quality of anything in this way. It’s just silly.

            Except it’s more like “Mona Lisa is just liked by Nostalgic old people and pretentious hipsters, whereas Banksy is more intellectual”. 1 out of 10.

          IMDB has it rated the 12th greatest movie ever made, 50 places above Citizen Kane. I agree that’s messed up.

        HA HA! Good one! I’ve actually been on this website regularly, I just haven’t been commenting. Wish there was more discussion on this site than what there is, love hearing people’s opinion on movies.

        SPOILER TALK AHEAD!

        I really felt like Interstellar was about as good as Inception (my favorite movie ever), only it didn’t have the flaws. Nolan clearly understood the mistake of not putting emphasis on the characters and the connections between them. When I saw Cooper yelling at Murphy in the tesseract scene, every fiber of my being wanted me to see him break through the book shelf and correct his “mistake” of leaving. I wanted to see him and Murphy reunited. Seriously, if I wasn’t in the theater I would have been yelling.

        Inception was just one phone call of Cobb talking to his kids. We get his Mcguffin, but we don’t care nearly as much as he does, which sort of distances the audience from the film.

        Also the cliff-hanger ending with the top still spinning left fans and critics very frustrated. Nolan never meant to leave the audience wondering, that was supposed to symbolize Cobb leaving his work as a dream interceptor for his family now.

        In INTERSTELLAR, I could have sworn that when Cooper was about to see Murphy again, it was going to go black and with credits again, but no. THANK GOD! Yeah there was the scene where he got in the shuttle to look for Brand and then it went black, but we already knew what was going to happen, so that was completely forgivable IMO.

        Great talking to you guys.

          MAJOR SPOILERS (INTERSTELLAR / INCEPTION)

          Yeah, I’m glad they reunited in some way in Interstellar after all that anguish, even if him appearing floating in space off Saturn was a bit convenient. I was satisfied with the ending. I haven’t seen Inception since it came out, as far as I can remember other aspects signposted that the final scene was reality rather than a dream so the spinning top alone wasn’t absolutely vital.
