Interstellar left me with a truly peculiar experience. The story does seem to be constantly interrupted by the philosophical interludes, and the rhythm of the whole film is somewhat uneasy: at times loosely linked but then immediately hyper intense. But still I was almost brought to tears at the hypercube scene, and the whole film definitely gave me a lot to think about. Nolan may have tried to encompass more than what can be, from the technical point of view, consistently organized into a cinematic piece, but the result is a unique and touching film. I give him praise for this exploration
Once you have mastered an art, there's no need to follow conventional structures... Interstellar is a masterpiece
Interstellar was a pile of crap-It completely lost me with the communicating though a fifth dimensional clock, and then ending the film with a "little woman going off and waiting for daddy to give her babies on another planet" **facepalm**See below for a more thorough breakdown-www.dailydot.com/via/biggest-problems-christopher-nolan-interstellar/
Interstellar and Avatar are some of my favorite films for different reasons.
who thought interstellar is one of the best movies
the human story goin on is pretty bland, the spectacle is pretty beautiful, and it's worth it just for that. the story is not complex at all tho, did people really have trouble understanding what was goin on? also, avatar was utter garbage
This is still my favourite film of all time. Everything from the score (which somehow didn’t win an Oscar), to the characters, the plot, and the science is incredible and jaw dropping. The pure emotion this movie pulls out of you is incredible
Honestly though just because they aren’t on screen together doesn’t mean that the father daughter aspect isn’t being shown, the distance between them and the time passing emphasises just how much of a bond they have
I disagree with you.
What a stupid opinion regarding Avatar. Don't include your personal irrational opinion and calling it the worst film in the Oscars. You have no idea about Filmmaking because you are not a Film director, writer or producer ( Cinema). Show your IMDB film credits before talking about Avatar and James Cameron. P.s. You have no idea how the Oscars are distributed. It doesn't tell if the film is the best of not best but if it was chosen by the Jury and 5500 members..... You are talking like a fan that's quite fine but showing off like an expert about Filmmaking, whoever has made this video is not....
I adore this movie, but still, agree with you.
This opinion ain't it chief
eight minute, seven second nothing burger
What a hot take
At the climactic point of the movie, Cooper has given up on being reunited with Murph, or even returning to Earth at all. He decides to finish the mission by doing a gravity assist with the blackhole, later revealing his intention to drop in as they do the flyby. The movie has spent basically its entire runtime hammering in the fact that Cooper will never see his daughter again, first with his departure and his explanation that when he meets Murph again, they might be the same age, then by his watching of Murph's life fly by after being stuck on the water planet, then finally having the ship, as well as much of the mission destroyed by dr. Mann. You can see the point in the movie where he's given up, that's why it doesn't really come as a surprise that he decides to drop into the black hole. He has essentially committed suicide; the audience doesn't even see how the mission plays out afterwards. It's like the movie gives up with him. And so, as he falls, expecting his death, he winds up reliving the exact point in his life where he could have chosen not to throw it away. In his attempt to free himself from the burden, he ends up condemning himself to watch it, helplessly. It's as if the whole movie funnels in at that point, the whole focus is on his choice to not be there, and him being forced to reflect on it after trying to escape it.That, there, is not spectacle overpowering story.
I hate this movie but I can understand your point here. On the other hand... there are a lot of great movies that you just can't rewatch... I think Irreversible by Gaspar Noé is a great film, but it is just too uncomfortable to re-watch it.
It's all just entertainment. Nothing more.
It' so much, much easier to be a film critic than to create a complex film narrative. I think that only really experienced directors are capable of pointing missed opportunities in visual storytelling.
100% disagree. Was never confused for the entire movie, and there was PLENTY of screen time for everything you said “didn’t have enough”. You don’t need the majority of a movie to focus on an idea in order for it to be a core aspect.
Didn’t agree with the title of the video because I think interstellar is one of the greatest sci go movies ever. Thought I was alone, I was relieved to see most of the comments agreed with me
Someone apparently mistook Interstellar for Gravity. While admittedly a flawed film, it's still light years ahead than most of those movies that only critics seem to like and shower with awards.
Although I truly enjoy the film (it is my favorite thus far), and even disagree with you generally, you present good and well-thought out points. This has given me quite a bit to think about and re-evaluate. While it hasn't changed my feelings on the film, I appreciate this analysis - thank you for it.
Sorry, but no.*Personally,* I loved the movie.The story was engaging, gripping, and almost made me cry _(It's just hard to make me cry okay?)._Mixed with the beautiful, emotional, and thrilling music by Hans Zimmer, and *_'Do Not Go Gentle into that good night'_* by Dylan Thomas, it was an amazing movie.Though I would agree that the movie had it's flaws, nothing is perfect.It at least, exceeded my expectations by *light years* _(Get it? No? OK i'll shut up,)._
I finally got around to watching Interstellar, and yes I have to agree with your critique. Since having watched 'Inception', I just expect Nolans work to have that touch of genius, sadly 'Interstellar' had none of that.I found it boring because for most part I don't like CGI; but I understand how some people might find that entertaining. However, it's not a movie that I'd watch again because its not a timeless piece of work.For everyone saying they liked 'Interstellar' for its Sci-fi angle and CGI etc; I'd just say: watch Gravity! It's one of those masterpiece you look at and just wonder: How tf did someone do this!
Showing the time they spent together and saying that it's to little to carry the story about their relationship is not only dumb because that isn't how storytelling works but also because the movie isn't about their relationship. It's about their relationship apart from each other as a father who had to leave his dotter. The movie wouldn't have worked if they spent so much time together. You've gotten the message wrong and so your video is based on your mistake.
Interstellar is a perfect example of an artistic masterpiece.
Glad to see the dislike button and comments have my back, you just dissed one of my fav movies. Fuck You.
When I was a boy, I used to read lots of grownup books and watch lots of grownup documentaries about the dark and dour yet blindingly brilliant chaos of the cosmos. So when I saw Interstellar’s visuals back in 2014, while everyone else was blown away beyond comprehension, I was simply glad to see that the film had not sacrificed scientific accuracy for its success at expressing far more creative cinematography than the 2013 movie Gravity, which featured a lonely character who panics and cries a lot while our home planet floats in the background. The story, however, was one of the more brilliant and expertly crafted tales I could remember, and I find it still is to this day. Even after having watched a great deal of movies at a young age, my 15-year-old self was too invested in the struggles of the fictional characters played by familiar actors flying through computer generated space to realize he was learning an important lesson about the potential of love and humanity. I almost felt bad for the people who never bothered to pay attention to the story because they were too amazed at the pretty colors. They may not even be aware of what the movie has to offer upon an additional viewing. But this movie, which I own, is definitely worth a second watch. So much so that I would, without being prompted, watch a TVclip video about it five years later. I can hardly say the same for Avatar, which, for the record, I also happen to own, but... oh well.
Interstellar movie plus the music = No words
Every fan of Interstellar knows that the "Love" Line is the worst line in the movie. But everyone also knows that it doesn't matter because that movie SLAPS
Matthew M. meets physics: E=MC Yeah3
Interstellar is the best film since 2000.
I walked out of Avatar
I thought this was Nolan pushing what could be done technically, the visual whether they are on earth or an planet are brilliant.
a stretch lol movie is not perfect but its a fucking masterpiece
Yawn, your so edgy. Anybody can analyze a film and try to interpret its meaning, its theme.
I almost don’t want to believe this because it’s too sad to think we won’t ever see a better version of interstellar; if it had more substance it would’ve been a masterpiece
a film critic should also know his place sometimes. this was really bad
man you got this one so so wrong, it's like you planned it, lol
What’s your take on Dunkirk?
You are wasting your time. People are no longer willing to seriously engage in films, but also want to be considered as thinkers. The jumbled together piece of nonsense that comes out of Nolan's Hollywood BS is the result of this modern audience.
I generally like your videos but one thing that I dont understand when it comes to Si-Fi movies is that why are people so hardly fixated on humanity? After all we are not peaceful race by any means. I agree we have good and we have BAD qualities. I agree some details in the movie are laughable like the preaching that Hathaway does. But Interstellar is more than that. It says the possibility of how we can influence our past and that we can help ourselves to save the race. I do extensive research to save 10s of lives from natural disasters and then I hear someone took many lives at pub or public place because of mental issues or religious believes or some other nonsensical reason. And I feel, many humanity is not meant to be saved... many it is meant to be left behind... Find a new home for us (humanity) and the way we look at each other.. and maybe some of us can help the rest to find that new beginning. And I see that interstellar metaphorically conveys the same message with amazing spectacles and extensive research to produce those spectacles like no other cinema did. We see the drama everywhere in our lives, we go to Cinemas to disconnect ourselves with the drama around us, to get lost in the magical world of many possibilities.. Which is why I think Interstellar is one amazing movie that I never get bored of watching and Nolan is the only director who really drives me to cinemas where I can get lost in his world.
A word of advice: it was more of a critisism of the movie trope and christopher nolan, as a film by itself do you think they could add more to this storyline while giving you the same experience? You tell me, note that if you had a moment of doubt while thinking then you might want to divert yourself from the movies you watch and watch something atypical.
"Not all movies are meant to be seen as movies" - Richie Patil
00:40 ehhh I watched Avatar 3 or 4 times actually..
Interstellar is my favorite movie of all time. I've seen it 8 and a half times and every time I watch it I love it even more.
Weird how the first thing I got out of this video was that Phoebes step brother was in Avatar
I think that you're are watching the whole thing from a wrong perspective. First of all, Nolan's characters, yes are dry but not really tiresome nor dull, since Batman Begins he started with the "movies based on character" very probably due to blockbuster budget. Actually Interstellar is a melodrama so I don't understand why you think they are dry or tiresome when the genre works and not is not sci-fi, just like 2001 and The Birds are not sci-fi despite people beliefs. I do understand you talk about 2001, Interstellar is a 2001 remake after all, a very good remake, Nolan achieved to do something quite similar to what Murakami does with his very own material: He have the same theme repeating in his novels but when is about talking again about his own theme he goes deep in it. There is a lot more to say (like: Science behind Interstellar is not really that hard and even if you see it that way not understanding it does not pulls you back from following Cooper's journey. ) but this comment would be unreadably large. I think that (sorry) you're seeing it from a very "American perspective" in which everything is plot, plot, plot, character, character, character.
I'm sorry, this was just bias through and through
Smartest script ive seen, one of the most emotional and brainiest experiences to date. Interstellar is a spectacle but you can’t say it is shallow in story or building emotion. Interstellar is like the finest whine that only caters to really attuned drinkers. I cried when the physics of the docking scene actually made sense and were portrayed exactly how I imagined it from a physics point of view, I tried to explain to my friends the grandeur of the scene but were met with “yeah it’s cool but the chase scene in Fast and Furious is cooler.” To me that’s like saying: John Lennon’s Imagine is great but Hanssons Mbop is better.You really should give it another watch, maybe together with a doctor in physics. ;)
the end is sublime. those two are responsible for saving mankind. there is little chance that they will survive but they are willing to try
I agree with lots of comments here. When I go to a movie I want to have an enjoyable time, be it the spectacle or the story. But vast majority of people have nowhere near the movie-insight you do. What you often referred to as 'lame' to me were things that I didn't pay much attention to. Movies like these are meant for the masses. For my money getting people fascinated about the visuals is a goal in and of itself; a one I truly appreciate
This movie has far more depth than this guy can hope to criticize.
This was shitty review.
Interstellar was a masterpiece. It was absolutely great at how it stitched precise science and art. This guy is shitting over a beautiful piece of filmmaking. This film was truly revolutionizing. This film was written by actual noble laureates like Kip Thorne. This guy is a low life. My God, you people don't let anything good remain so.
Jeez I do love Zimmers score...
...just to add, I love this movie, but then again I have three daughters so it hit me hard and yes, I cry like a baby every time I see it.
I don't usually comment on TVclip videos but gotdayem this was the stupidest video I've seen on this forsaken platform.
Why I haven't seen this video yet.. it's true .. everything is true... It's a fucked up movie ..
I saw this movie 5 times in the theater and I'm a cheapskate. It didn't get much love at the time, but as a Coen bros and Wes Anderson fan from their first film, I'm used to being the odd one out. I think corporate film critique sucks absolute ass. They never get it right usually lol. Anyway, it's nice to see the love for Interstellar in the comment section. It's a fantastic film.
Imagine loving movies so much you can’t enjoy them anymore?
Over analysing a movie, nitpicking, trying very hard to prove that Interstellar did something wrong like other movies that actually were wrong in a few places, garnering attention by targeting an emotional, visual and scientific masterpiece. I am sure people have seen Interstellar and Avatar for a second time more than the hurt locker which was a passable movie which also ran for 2 hrs and 11 minutes. How the hell is a 40 minute allocation for Dad-daughter not enough? You are just spewing some of the biggest load of BS I have seen on TVclip.
This vid recommendation is the punishment I get for listening to Hans Zimmer.
I didn't really like the ending. He met his daughter after ages and then leaves to find Anne's character. Felt a little anticlimactic. Could've done it in mid credits or something.
You are confusing the science shown for ideas of the movie. Other sci-fi movies use science as a gimmick to base the movie off of but Interstellar it is just a setting or an obstacle to the plot. Showing these science concepts, missteps in their journey, and relationship distresses builds up further the dread and realization that they are getting further and time is moving on at home. It is exactly what emotionally exhausts you as the movie goes on.This movie was filled with situations of love, leaving loved ones, time, losing time and people. It hits you step by step with the payoff of the reunion at the end. To me that's the beauty of this movie. Such a relate-able thing to want to get that chance for one last conversation, no matter how short, with someone you love.
First time "thumbs down" from me because I had so many emotionally draining yet fulfilling viewings of Interstellar that I just don't see the negatives you're presenting. It's certainly not a film beyond criticism but I love the Hathaway speech and actual screen time doesn't really matter in terms of perceived presence of something. Both the Joker and Hannibal Lecter have very little screen time in their films, for example, but I dare you to tell me that their presence isn't forever felt in every subsequent scene after their first appearances. I'd argue the same about the connection between Murph and Cooper. It's always there and never gone, in my opinion.
0:33 "Have you seen it a second time?" Well, uh, yeah, actually. Don't assume my filmwatching gender.
Ive never been able to be on board with interstellar, but have always felt like the odd one out. I am glad to see that I am not the only one who was disappointed with it, after all the amazing movies Nolan had made previously.
Sorry bro but you're just wrong here lol
So... I own 2 copies of Avatar and watch them regularly. As a 3D artist the attention to detail is astounding. That kind of love and attention absolutely deserves a better plot.
why do you have two copies? and do you watch them on rotation?
For the first time I would like to raise a point about one of your videos. I am not a native speaker and enjoy your videos a lot because of the clarity with which you bring your points across and the to point mirroring of that in the editing of your videos. I watched most of your videos repeatedly because of that. With this video I feel like there is sooo much going on that I can not follow. Showing scenes from different movies in rapid progression.Layering it with the rather loud Interstellar theme, at times cutting over your voice.Making points in very rapid succession.All of these points make it very hard for me to follow.Love your videos and your work and just wanted to let you know. Thanks so much. :)
A bad remake of Contact with more glossy finish but similarly way too much mush and soapy rubbish. For me this is the least good item in Nolan catalogue.
I agree, I really wasn't a fan of this one
Very surprised by the comments and the fact that almost everyone defends this movie 100%. I really liked Memento, the Prestige, the Dark Knight, but then I found Inception to be a pretentious overrated mess and disliked Interstellar even more for the same reason. I agree with your analysis !
This is the first of this guy's videos I've stumbled upon and... holy shit he has 2.5m subscribers?? How?? He's obnoxious as fuck. You can tell how breathlessly full of himself he is with every word he says.Edit: Oh my god he has a Patreon, what an absolute fuckwit.
I own Avatar and have watched it at least 10 times since its release
Stanley Kubrick was in a league of his own. Just like Jack Nicholson said: "Everybody pretty much acknowledges that he is the man, and I think that still underrates him."
The worst film to be nominated at the Oscars, certainly the worst to be considered seriously.You know that 'Crash' exists right? Watch that for a real experience of heavy handed narrative, I couldn't ever suffer through it a second time.
Did we watch the same movie...?
It's not a perfect movie, but it's still one of the best movie's I've ever seen
Love how good stuff always goes over the head of smart people unintentionally looking for what they're used to rather than looking at WHAT'S THERE. See Dan Harmon's total misread of Interstellar for another example. It's not SPECTACLE that eclipses story here, it's EMOTION. And that difference matters. Spectacle can be empty like Zak whatsisname's Superman movie where spectacle is beautiful but devoid of meaning or depth. Then watch Interstellar where, as the comments on this video show, Nolan - who is not a moron who can't keep character and theme in mind - imbues his spectacle with depth of emotion.Harmon also missed the same thing here. Nolan made HIS movie with Interstellar, having handed in the Studio movies he was obliged to. He knew that HIS audience would hear about the movie as it developed and understand that this was something special to HIM, put together with care and passion and therefore, if it were going to new or unfamiliar places structurally or technically, we'd give it a chance to see where it took us. That meant, like any good writer of novels or scripts, he could spend longer than the specified 1/4 in the first act if he wanted to. He could sketch broad stroke characters without dwelling on detail if he wanted to. He knew that he could ride on us as a sophisticated audience putting together the necessary pieces. Understanding that, like Tolkien painting a deep portrait of a world to be changed and spending more 'space' doing so than convention suggests, Nolan was establishing an atmosphere and mood that, like Tolkien's, would keep an audience WHO GAVE THEMSELVES UP TO IT engaged.Before all the "RULES" about storytelling came about via the need to reduce risk in the high budgets of cinema, people read Tolkien and the many other books that spent too long in Act I or II or whatever other conventions they broke, and had NO EXPECTATION. They simply read and enjoyed what was there. That meant that if Tolkien spent an ACT II size portion describing the world of Act I to us, we enjoyed his deep portrait and went along with it.In Interstellar, Nolan can do what he wants because he doesn't take us for morons. He knows that we will understand how important the relationship between the main character and his daughter is. If he wants to use her for exposition we're not going to suddenly lose all comprehension of her place in the story or feel that she's suddenly become superfluous or only there FOR the exposition. Those of us who allowed ourselves to be swept along for the ride on the first or second or third or fourty-fifth telling, experienced one of the most powerful emotional cinematic journeys where the Story was not missing in any form but was almost an equal partner with the EMOTIONAL JOURNEY that both informed and was informed by the very simple story. If we'd had to keep track of any more parts than were given we'd perhaps have spent more time in our minds than in our hearts which it seems was the transcendent journey Nolan had in mind all along.Interstellar: a transcendent emotional journey with just enough story that it doesn't get in the way of a ride that can't be expressed in words.
This is so pretentious wtf
i dont think the spectacle "eclipsed" or took anything away, but i agree with a lot of what you said. interstellar is definitely one of his weaker films.
I dont agree at all
This is one video of yours that I have to dislike. I just can't come to terms with your opinion on Interstellar
I don't agree with your opinion. To me, Interstellar is an incredible movie, one of my favorite movies even. I watched it many times again and always enjoyed it as much. The plot is great and the character development is also very good in my opinion (not even talking about the incredible visuals). My only small problem with the movie is that the ending tries to use love as a physical concept, as if it really existed outside of our brains and had an effect on the universe. But, even that small error can actually be interpreted as simply the divagations of Amelia Brand to justify her going to Edmund's planet.
I don’t own any other Blu-ray’s other than interstellar lmao
Excellent points all round
Please don't bother making another video. This was awful. Avatar is one of the best movies of all time.
watchu spittin man
Why do people from India like this movie so much? It's really not that good. What about Slumdog Millionaire? This is your culture so you are better positioned to judge it.
lol yep i own avatar and have probably watched it around 9 times. my little sister was obsessed with it
I couldn't agree more. This video encapsulates everything I think about this movie since I first saw it in the movie theater back in 2014. It's a big, ambitious, cerebral blockbuster but it also has so many writing flaws in it that halfway through it I was bored the hell out with all the exposition dialogue (basic theoretical physics from scientist to scientist, no mind) and Love Applied to Quantum Mechanics 101 (*sigh*). And yet, it is much better than the majority of blockbusters and it's pretty much essential to a healthy Hollywood industry which can still value a little bit of brains in its products.
Well he got it better with Dunkirk
I agree with you in some of your points. This movie is not perfect. And that’s fine. A movie can’t be perfect.But it’s one of the best movies ever done if not the best.Nolan is a genius, and so is Hans Zimmer. Let’s enjoy that.
This guy needs to go watch "Contact" or something. "Interstellar" was amazing, especially when so many movies nowadays will not be watched over and over again at home long after their release.
if i was earning enough money i’d love to donate to the patreon - sadly i don’t and i can’t 😔i think it would be incredible if at least half of the viewers from each video donated just a dollar - the impact this would have !
i was 12 when Avatar came out, and it was the first time i recognised film as more than just entertainment - for this i fell in love with the visual artistic style and have always adored the moviei’ve rewatched it many times since
interstellar is without a doubt one of the best movies I have ever seen in my life
Thanks for reminding me to rewatch Interstellar.It's not my favorite movie, but your criticism of it was not persuasive at all to me.
Interstellar is probably the best movie of the century. It is so good that I never get tired of watching it again. I could watch it everyday. So your criticism don't matter to me or to anyone who loves this movie which is probably most of the people who watched this movie.
