    The best film is still Tomorrow Never Dies. You should do something about Bond.

    About father daughter relationship, i believe that time given to them in the film was just right. As the daughters longing for her father, and fathers need to see his daughter ones more is the part of the story if not one of the driving fources of the story. By not being toghether is the force that pulls them to eachother and is important part of the story. Logic is, what is not there also shapes the story. Only at the end when she is on the verge of death and him on the crossroad of his life they find eachother, beating the impossible odds that universum created specialy for them. It is brief moment but powerfull one.

    Interstellar, Batman trilogy and inception are future classics that, while hugely popular today, will be lamented by connoisseurs in the future. Nolan should try doing a series, his ideas are almost too huge for a movie run time

    I think most people believe interstellar is a masterpiece because it was presented as a masterpiece, it's needlessly over two and a half hours long but some believe that this is a trait for an epic movie, it has awesome soundtrack, and it has an way above average ending, seeing a father meeting his now older(!) daughter it's surely something! It's really good and if you compare it with the useless movies we get today, it might be a masterpiece. But with some horrible acting in places along with some boring-cliche philosophical dialogues, the ATM machine with legs, and some questionable moments like when Cooper finds NASA and they telling him that he is the best for the mission yada yada, while they were ready to go without him anyway, they just met him, wtf? These details are keeping the movie from becoming a masterpiece of all time, it's good but not extremely good. Now, about deeper meanings and stuff, I can find deep meanings in Ace Ventura's movies so it's kind of subjective.

    i couldnt disagree more, this movie was amazing to me, the soundtrack could make paint drying look epic and the father daughter story made me tear up, the only disappointing thing was the ending of their story, it was really cool to see him come back to his elderly daughter when he himself had only aged around a year, but it just seemed like the whole point of it was to say "hey look, shes old and happy, and hes still the same and sad" i mean come on. still top 10 for me though

    I still cry like a bitch when I see Coop watch the vids of Murph and Tom after getting back from the EV when time dilation literally decimated his life.
    Also, the live organ work on Zimmer’s soundtrack is utterly delicious.
    It would seem to me that the instrumentation on the soundtrack is carefully chosen as a subliminal metaphor for love and religion. The subconscious commentary one has, that they can’t quite verbalise, ties to this, in my opinion.

    I couldn’t past the first 30 mins of Interstellar. I found it hammy, embarrassing and unbelievable. Simply not worth the time required to get to the end. And that stupid-looking robot-box-thing? Sorry, I just couldn’t take the film seriously, once that had appeared on the screen.

    I think Nolan makes better cinematic experiences, than films. I appreciate and am bedazzled about his work, especially on the big screen. Like a David Lean project. Packed with detail to be experienced on the biggest stage, whereas on a tiny screen any imperfection is more noticeable than the experience.

    For the defenders of this movie in the commments. Interstellar is garbage. As soon as earths problem was: can't grow crops. And the solution: space travel. The film looses all credibility.
    We have the tech now to deal with that.
    And to loosely quote Neil Degrasse Tyson, "Any problem the earth faces would be easier to fix than colonizing another planet. Any problem"

    Honestly to this day, the scene with Dr. Bran about the power and essence of love is one of the most cherished learning experiences I had from a movie. You may call it awkward philosophical declarations but I’m sure to many of us, it makes sense.

    Do we really need to slow down for these people?

    For the first time I strongly disagree with you. The list of things you found lacking I found in abundance in the movie. You were just simply not on the same wavelength with where Nolan was coming from on this one. Interstellar is by no mean perfect, but it's definitely an epic emotional masterpiece. One of my all time favourite.

    No bro I disagree with you here. It is not a perfect movie. Which movie is? But as a film lover with a master's in physics the movie to me was emotionally engaging , and also satisfied my love for scientific accuracy (or how much it can be done in film) . I would always come back to the movie. There is no need to pick on Nolan even if it is because you hold him to a high standard. He has delivered .

  • Michael Beach

    I think you're mistaken in several ways. It leaves a lot for you to think about. It also follows the heroes journey pretty closely. Halfway through, I thought, "how will he be the master of both worlds?" and then, he does. You're being too hard on it overall. Its just a movie.

  • Jacob David

    You are no doubt intelligent, and I normally enjoy your videos, but your criticisms of this movie are a fantastic example of how and why intelligent film critics, like yourself, fail to understand those of us with far less mental acuity. This is one of my favorite movies because behind all of the complex ideas being presented in this movie, one thing matters above all else. The love of a father for his child. How it can drive us to go to any length to fight for those we love. It’s sad how wrong you are about why so many of us love this movie.

    FINALLY. FINALLY SOMEONE PUT INTO WORDS WHAT I FELT ABOUT THIS MOVIE. I've been trying for so long to find someone who felt the same about this movie as me after hearing everyone I talk about it to tell me "Dude wtf how do you not like Interstellar?" lol (Even the fact that this entire comments section disagrees with you makes me realize I honestly WISH i could've enjoyed this movie as much as everyone else did...Idk I think I was just so hyped after Inception/Dark Knight and am such a fan of Space that I expected TOO much and ultimately let myself down watching it smh...)

    I think your definition of art is a bit skewed. Filmmaking is art, and it will be flawed as the people who make it are flawed. A perfect movie is a miracle.

    I think that future of Cinema is 3D high definition, high dynamic range, surround sound, high fps larger then life stories! Cinema is using 24 fps because it's cheaper, not because it's better. Now we can do better and cheaper. People love 24 fps 2d because of nostalgia! Language of cinema and it's process evolves all the time, the question is: Do you want to be in the frontier creating culture?

    I hate people who try to defend 2001 a space odyssey and pretend like it’s better than interstellar.
    You can say what you will, but 2001’s effects haven’t aged well. It had great set pieces, but that’s as far as it goes
    As far as character writing, story, effects, and overall enjoyment. I’d say interstellar is MUCH better than 2001.

    I have to disagree with you. Interstellar is a masterpiece. I watched it like 20 times and it gives me a chill every time.
    Interstellar is so good because it discussed that if "love" is quantifiable real stuff or just a human invention. and it handles it very well. you just grabbed some flaws of this movie them magnified it.

  • Tom Osborne
    Tom Osborne 25 days ago

    I agree with your criticisms of the film, but I was still absolutely gripped by it for its entire duration and some of the concepts were mind-blowing (for me, a non-astrophysicist). Cinematically and visually, it WAS fantastic, unlike Avatar. The story doesn't quite hold together when subjected to real scrutiny, but I still found myself desperate for everything to be okay as I identified with the struggle for the survival of the human species rather than necessarily the plight of individual characters. I guess it's a film of contradictions. Hugely ambitious and for me a thrilling and wonder-inducing ride, but ultimately has so much it wants to say and show to its audience that it loses coherence and depth as a piece of art.

    I feel better knowing I'm not the only one to feel that way. I even find you quite nice with the movie compare to what I can say about it. I saw it on the theater and it was difficult to stay awake or focus all the time. Of course there is sooo many fuel for nice scenes that everyone find something to relate to in the movie. But the only feeling left for me, personally, after watching Interstellar was a bit of emptiness.
