Movie Review – Interstellar (2014)

12 November 2014 10:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Interstellar, 2014.

Directed by Christopher Nolan

Starring Matthew McConaughey, Wes Bentley, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, David Gyasi, Michael Caine, Topher Grace, John Lithgow, Casey Affleck and Ellen Burstyn.

Synopsis:

A group of explorers make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.

Film: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship celluloid. It’s mission: to survive amongst the ever-growing digital age around it, to boldly go where many have gone before, but few venture to anymore. It’s strange to think that the filmmaking that got us to this very point in cinema history is close to extinction, but perhaps not as quickly as some think, especially if the director of Inception, Memento and The Dark Knight Trilogy gets his way. Interstellar, his latest multi-layered, multi-million dollar epic takes us to the »

Entertainment Geekly Mailbag: 'Interstellar' rage

10 November 2014 3:16 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Christopher Nolan made Memento, but he also made The Dark Knight Rises. Great filmmakers can make bad movies: This is not a particularly complicated equation. And Nolan's new space melodrama Interstellar is not a particularly complicated movie. The science is elaborate and insane, but the emotional stakes are simple: Father loves daughter, father saves humanity. But Nolan is one of our plottiest filmmakers. (Most films have three acts; Nolan's movies usually have at least six, usually out of order and/or overlapping.) I attempted to explain the plot of Interstellar, but even I ran up against some impenetrable cosmo-logic.

Second Opinion – Interstellar (2014)

9 November 2014 12:12 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Interstellar, 2014.

Directed by Christopher Nolan

Starring Matthew McConaughey, Wes Bentley, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, David Gyasi, Michael Caine, Topher Grace, Casey Affleck and Ellen Burstyn.

Synopsis:

A group of explorers make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.

A quick note before I begin the review:

Regardless of what I or others may think about Interstellar, one thing will remain constant; you need to see the film in 70mm IMAX to truly experience the film as the director wanted it to be seen. The advent of digital screening may be, to some, an improvement over film projected at 24 Fps due to clarity unseen before, but nothing can match the beautiful grain and slight imperfections of watching a film. The detail is so rich, you cannot mistake it for anything else and, if for no other reason, »

9 November 2014 9:20 AM, PST | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

Paramount Pictures released their new sci-fi/drama movie, "Interstellar," into theaters this weekend. I checked it out yesterday, and thought it was way better than I originally thought it would be. It had a runtime of an epic 3 hours that I found to be quite interesting the whole time. It delivered non-stop drama,action and major plot twists that just kept my head spinning. It stars: Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Ellen Burstyn, John Lithgow, Michael Caine, Casey Affleck, Wes Bentley, Bill Irwin, Mackenzie Foy, Topher Grace and David Gyasi. In the new flick, the preface revolved around the fact that the Earth would no longer be able to sustain humanity in the not too distant future. Crops are routinely ravaged by blight,dust storms scour the land, and mankind has regressed to an agrarian society. Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), a former Nasa test pilot and engineer turned farmer, is currently living with his family, »

8 November 2014 12:20 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar is finally in theaters.  As most of you know, Nolan wrote the screenplay based on a previous draft by his brother, Jonathan Nolan (The Dark Knight).  The story finds a crew of astronauts led by Matthew McConaughey setting off into deep space in order to find a new planet that might be inhabitable.  Loaded with a great cast (Anne HathawayJessica ChastainCasey AffleckMichael CaineDavid OyelowoWes BentleyJohn LithgowEllen Burstyn,  Topher GraceDavid GyasiMackenzie FoyBill Irwin, and Timothee Chalamet) and amazing visuals, Interstellar should be seen on the biggest screen possible.  If you have an IMAX theater near you, I strongly suggest seeing it in that format.  For more on the film, watch these featurettes, clip, or click here for all our coverage.

15 maddening 'Interstellar' plot holes

8 November 2014 8:46 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

You just saw Interstellar. You have questions. It's almost impossible to watch Christopher Nolan's space epic without having one or two. Below are a bunch. About half of these could be considered plot holes. Others are more like plot contrivances, things that seemed slightly maddening despite possibly having some explanation within the story's layers of exposition. And while there was plenty to love and admire about this wildly ambitious and gorgeous film, it's also a tale where a man in space suit survived going into a black hole, communicated with himself back in time via a fifth dimensional library, »
