    Neil deGrasse Tyson Explains the End of ‘Interstellar’

    Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar is science fiction, not space opera. It presents a not-so-far-away future in which space travel, while possible, is dangerous and uncertain. Time dilation comes into effect in the presence of a black hole and there’s just enough quantum mechanics for physics geeks to consider the film’s space-travel scenario as halfway or hypothetically […] More

The release of a Christopher Nolan movie, even one that “underperforms” at the box office like this week’s Interstellar, is by far the most fervently talked about work of art for several […] More

    ‘Interstellar’ on the Small Screen

    Disclaimer: I saw Interstellar on one of the smallest screens possible. Alright, I better revoke that statement. It’s not like I pirated Chris Nolan’s just-released brainy blockbuster and uploaded it to my iPhone to watch in bits and pieces as a way to pass the time during my daily commute. I’m just rather positive I […] More

    A Look Into The Mind of Christopher Nolan

    Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, whose title alone in reference to the director’s name equals cinematic moxie, has the makings of a filmmaker putting his direction, vision and ideas to the test, where a running time of 169 minutes set in milieus that rocket from one plane of existence to the titular other — the interstellar, infinite […] More

    This week we discuss Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, a visually stunning popcorn spectacle, loaded with thrills and chills and plenty of film-school references. There’s just enough quantum mechanics for physics geeks to try and convince us that the film’s space-travel scenario is halfway or hypothetically plausible.

    ‘Interstellar’ is a bumpy, exhilarating ride

    Interstellar begins at an indeterminate point in Earth’s future, when blight and drought are pushing humanity to the breaking point. “This world is a treasure, but it’s been telling us to leave for a long time now,” laments engineer-turned-farmer, Cooper (Matthew McConaughey). He’s a practical man who set aside dreams of space travel in order to provide for his family, and yet his powerful intellect keeps him sneaking glances skyward. When he and his precocious daughter, Murph (Mackenzie Foy), decipher mysterious signals directing them to random GPS coordinates, Cooper is only too eager to indulge his curiosity. More

    ‘Interstellar’ is only haphazardly successful

    I really jibe with what Interstellar is trying to accomplish. I want big budget films to aim intellectually and emotionally high. I agree with most of its messages and themes. I am the choir it is preaching to. Which makes it all the more disappointing that the movie is, in the most charitable view, only haphazardly successful. There are aspects to love about the movie — it’s the best-looking blockbuster in years, and there are some truly enrapturing moments. but that’s scattered among strings of misaimed beats across a punishing, nearly three-hour runtime.
