Excellent cinematography. Brilliant score. Outstanding visual effects that gave me goose bumps at times. Interstellar flies high above the much inferior Gravity. Nonetheless, underneath the spectacular imagery, one cannot help but notice the standard archetypes of Hollywood sci-fi : the selfless hero, his love interest, the Judas, the token. The movie doesn’t deal with the philosophical implications of certain events, nor does it address the sci-fi community with the appropriate respect. It lacks emotional impact and underestimates its audience’s intelligence. Nolan had the opportunity to make an artistic and intelligent space-opera, instead he went for a blockbuster.

P.S : Special mention goes to the cool robots. Geeks will recognize Kubrik’s Monolith

  1. I just watched the second half yesterday, since i stopped last time in the middle, well i do want to seem like an ass kisser but i think that the movie represents a female emotional view on scientific space exploration. I find it very pathetic, because it does not even respect the romanticism that it intended to cover, nor the complexity of the forth dimension. That is the new shallow wave of science emotional preaching.

    The concept of love in the movie is so shallow.
