Goofs

Once landed on Millers planet, and in the 7 Earth years per their hour time dilation field, the audience can see the receding wave that has just passed. The event flow is real time and only takes a few minutes. The next wave is almost on top of them when it's noticed and, considering the speed at which it arrived, there was too much action from that point before it actually hit, when they should have only had seconds. Also, the crew didn't seem to panic enough for self preservation, since Doyle had died after lingering unnecessarily. As soon as the ship is on the other side of the wave we see the next wave approaching in the background as the landing struts extend. The action / conversation flow is continuous between the waves and is again only a few minutes, yet the dialogue leads us to believe 3/4 of an hour has passed while waiting for the engines to drain. In terms of the context of the situation only around 10-12 minutes was experienced on Millers planet, meaning just over a year of Earth time which would have been similar to original expectations, yet 23 years passed for Romilly on the mother ship.

Quotes

Murph: [through video monitor] Hey Dad. You sonabitch. Never made one of these while you were still responding because I was so mad at you for leaving. And when you went quiet, it seemed like I should live with that decision, and I have. But today's my birthday. And it's a special one, because you told me... you once told me that by the time you came back we might be the same age. And today I'm the same age you were when you left.
[crying]
Murph: So it'd be a real good time for you to come back.

Alternate Versions

The 70mm IMAX version is two minutes shorter than the regular 70mm, Digital IMAX, 35mm, and digital projection versions. This is because the end credits are played in an abbreviated slide-show form (rather than scrolling from bottom to top), due to the size capacity of the IMAX platters, which can hold a maximum of 167 minutes of film.

A Visually Monumental And Thoughtful Sci-Fi Epic
8 November 2014 | by CalRhysSee all my reviews

I was extremely lucky to get the chance to see this film upon its first day release, before entering the cinema, my expectations were already high, after all, this was a film from the cinematic genius who brought us the likes of 'Inception' and 'The Dark Knight', to summarise the following review in a single sentence: I left the cinema in extreme awe from the visual masterpiece I had just viewed. A film that explores the psychological and emotional state of a man whose life revolves around his family, 'Interstellar' is a thrilling and thought-provoking film that boasts an intellectual story masterfully written by the Nolan brothers. Whilst there seems to have been influence from films like '2001: A Space Odyssey' and 'Apollo 13', 'Interstellar' is unique in its own way. Whilst the subject may be hard to comprehend at times, it can't be denied how visually monumental and thoughtful Christopher Nolan's epic science fiction masterpiece is, and can easily be named the best film of this year and possibly one of the greatest science fiction films to have ever graced the screen. A sheer brilliant feat of cinema.
