Synopsis: Read on IMDB
Should you watch this movie? It is a very interesting movie that’ll keep you at the edge of your seat. And at the very least to watch Matthew “allright, allright, allright” MCConaughey in what seems to be the least convincing character he can play: a freakin’ astronaut!
Earth is becoming a place uncapable to sustain human life. There are food shortages because crops are dying and humanity’s survival is in question. A team of NASA scientist embarks in Endurance, a follow-up to the Lazarus mission to search for viable planets to “relocate” beyond a black hole next to Saturn (believed to be placed there by interstellar beings).
If you read my previous post you know I had some guesses about the movie plot and I was right. And trust me, I’m not spoiling it one bit when you go and read that. The movie has a strong science-driven plotline that’ll blow your mind. But don’t worry, it will not be a complex mess that’ll leave you with a massive headache. It’s like watching Cosmos with action scenes (and insteas of the soothing sounds of Carl Sagan or Neil Degrasse-Tyson, the southern brawl of McConaughey).
The cast is pretty impressive. When I saw some promo pictures of the movie I was surprised it had Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain, then I saw the poster and saw the likes of Michael Caine and Ellen Burstyn also starring. And when you watch the movie, you’ll meet a couple of familiar faces as well! This whole spectacle of theoretical physics in action is directed by none other than Mr. Christopher Nolan.
Although the plot is generally “follow-able” there will be parts where you’ll go, “wait, what? Can you rewind that please?” That may damper your experience a tiny bit, but it will still remain highly enjoyable. It is understandable to expect some confusion when dealing with the topics of singularities, relativity, and astrophysics in general. However, and with that storyline part aside, Interstellar is still, pretty badass.
