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
