Moria gives it 5 out of 5 stars and says
In an era where box-office science-fiction is represented almost exclusively by superheroes and mass destruction spectacle, it is a genuine pleasure seeing a film that is rooted in solid science and high-concept science-fiction. We have a film that features such challenging concepts from physics as relativity, gravity and spacetime, time dilation effects, black holes and wormholes, which are a little more than the usual stuff that get served up to the popcorn bucket multiplex crowd.Empire Online gives it 5 out of 5 stars. Slash Film says, "As Interstellar ends, there’s no doubt you’ve been on a ride. A thoroughly enjoyable and memorable cinematic experience that’s well-made and acted." Rolling Stone gives it 3 1/2 out of 4 stars and praises "how enthralling it is, how gracefully it blends the cosmic and the intimate, how deftly it explores the infinite in the smallest human details."
Roger Ebert's site gives it 3 1/2 out of 4 stars and says the film is "an impressive, at times astonishing movie that overwhelmed me to the point where my usual objections to Nolan's work melted away." Rotten Tomatoes has a critics rating of 71% and an audience rating of 85%.
I must live in a vacuum, because I had never heard of this film. I was surprised when I scrolled back to see it was made in 2014. Any film that includes REAL science with Sci-Fi gets 2 thumbs up in my book. Thanks for sharing the trailer and your thoughts on the film.ReplyDelete
There are so _many_ movies released! It's impossible to keep up. When I see the trailers on DVDs I'm constantly saying, "I've never heard of that one."Delete
I have been wanting to see this one, but we missed it at the cinema so either we wait for it to reach a television set near us, or we rent it. I am expecting great things from this one, and I really like Bullock. We are not really fans of superhero films.ReplyDelete
We are lucky in being able to find used DVDs for less than movie tickets for 2. My husband is a comic book fan from his childhood, so we take in all the superhero movies. I like some better than others.I like Batman and the Avengers, for example, but I don't like Spiderman at all and am not a big fan of Superman (except from the old Fleischer cartoons, that is. I like those).Delete
