Interstellar (2014)


interstellar-logo-banner“We used to look up at the sky and wonder at our place in the stars, now we just look down and worry about our place in the dirt. ” – Cooper

Number of Times Seen – 1 (6 Nov 2014 in theater)

Brief Synopsis – A former test pilot joins a daring mission in space to try and find a way to save the human race.

My Take on it – Christopher Nolan has once again proven that his mind comes up with ideas that can just blow you away.

His movies are so enjoyable because so much happens on so many levels that to grasp every concept is impossible through just one viewing if not even via multiple ones.

This is a movie that I’ve been anticipating for years and I’m glad the wait has finally ended.

Living in Israel, new movies always debut on Thursdays so I once again had the opportunity and pleasure of seeing a brand new movie in the theater before most of the world even had the possibility of doing so.

Since most actors know how amazing Nolan’s movies are, the list of A-list actors who appear in this movie is phenomenal. What’s even more interesting is that as the close to 3 hour runtime moves on, we are treated to seeing more stars who pop up when least expected.

The long runtime is only felt in a few scenes, but in general this movie flows perfectly.

I must admit that I’m gonna have to see this one a few more times to grasp some of the concepts presented, but I’m consoled by the fact that im gonna have a hellava time rewatching this one over and over.

Bottom Line – Excellent movie from the master that makes you leave the theater with so much to think about. Amazing cast that keeps getting stronger as the movie goes on. This is a movie that definitely needs to be viewed multiple times to enjoy it completely. Highly recommended!

Rating – Oscar Worthy

    • guess it’s an advantage living in a country that premiere’s movies on Thursdays 🙂 Over the 22 years Ive lived here, I’ve seen so many blockbuster movies the day before they debut in the states 🙂

      Thinking about it over the last 48 hours has made it even greater in my mind (if that’s even possible)

      Cant wait to hear what you think of it.

  2. Loved this movie. The visuals were some of the best I’ve ever seen on screen, and it was a surprisingly affecting film. Yeah, it had flaws, but the sheer ambition of it all led to a wonderful moviegoing experience (I saw it in 70 mm IMAX, and I’m glad I did). Also, Tars was awesome.

  3. Happy to hear you enjoyed this one, too! Though I do think it was a little long and, yes, the concepts were a little confusing, I thought this one was really great. Like you, I continue to be a huge fan of Nolan’s work. Nice review!
