Interstellar | ★★★★★★★☆☆☆

I thought that this movie had little to do with Space and everything to do with what makes humans human. I loved the many subtle (and not so subtle) messages about how people prioritize their lives and the sacrifices we are sometimes called to make.

The main plot is about a team of explorers who travel through a wormhole in an attempt to find a potentially habitable planet that will sustain humanity. It paints a dark picture of our future and explores how different people react to the pressures of life.

Interstellar is a long movie (almost 3 hours) and moved slow in a few parts - perhaps the film's editors wanted us to experience the monotony of space travels? That said, I found it to be a very enjoyable story - I even chuckled at the way that the lead character tried to explain a strange twist of fate and not even consider a divine explanation.

Overall, I liked the movie and, on a scale of ten, give it ★★★★★★★.

  1. It was a long movie but we did enjoy it immensely!

  2. Been hearing from several people how good it is.

  3. You are right about the human side to the story more than the "spaceyness" of it. Which part were you referring to where you said they did not consider a divine explanation?

    1. To avoid being a spoiler, I sent you an email Pearlie.

  4. Wow! Just finished watching. This may have eeked into my top 20 (maybe 10) movies of all time (relative time, of course).
