I wish I loved it, but I didn't. I have a feeling this movie will be debated over for a long, long time.

As someone who loves astrophysics I dreamed this would be the perfect movie for me. It didn't. But come on, what movie can live up to those kind of expectations?

This movie was however Incredible. Mind blowing. Visuals, the cinematography are spectacular. Saturn, wormhole, the black hole. Everything. From start to finish is such a gorgeous, colorful and dazzling adventure. From earth to space and to.... you know.

Acting was amazing as well. Especially Chaistein and Matthew. He really got me emotionally

Unlike some I really thought the emotionally got to me. The relationship between Cooper and Murph - is not only the best father-daughter relationship - it may be the parent-child, which is saying A LOT.

I mean there are lots of stuff to express about this film ( the balance between science and spirituality, characters, realism) I just want to finish off by saying what a powerful cinematic experience Interstellar is. For me at least. Hope it'll get more appreciation in the future. Just like Kubricks sci-fi did.

Great films are often debated. And this one is no different. One of the most ambitious movies I've ever seen, that's for sure.

The enormity of this film is incredible. If any movie can get by on looks alone, it's this one. You almost have to rate this movie in three parts. In my opinion, part 1 and part 2 are easily both 10/10. Part 3 is where it gets a little tricky. You kind of just have to trust the direction Nolan wanted to go. I loved the idea of what he wanted to do, I just don't know how one would express it. So the part 3 I personally give a 7.5/10. A must see though. Films like this don't happen very often.

It's a great film, but it falls slightly short of being the masterpiece it seemed set up to be. There are a few issues, such as the dragging of some scenes (no way did it have to be that long) and what was, in my opinion, a slightly botched ending.

For much of the film, we must take huge leaps of faith and attempt to ignore the plot holes which are just as deep as the black hole itself. However, this film sent me on an emotional roller coaster unlike any I can remember. That's where it's strength lies, and that's what will make it memorable for a long time.

Not great, not terrible, it was decent, I'd say a very solid 6.25/10. - Moments of it were fantastic, funny, heartbreaking, thought provoking, but the acting/dialog were really poor in a lot of places. I never got mad or overly frustrated with it but it was enough to keep me from loving it. The Prestige 9.4/10 is my favorite Nolan film, then 2nd is Inception 8.25/10, 3rd Interstellar 6.25/10, then 4th is The Dark Knight 5/10.

This is Nolan's masterpiece. This will be his movie that people will remember decades from now. All his previous efforts have led to this.

This is a film which from a visual standpoint is brilliant but the plot is too convoluted and way too ambitious, and by saying it is too convoluted I don't mean that it is too complicated to understand I mean that too much is going on, it would make more sense to only focus on one aspect such as the actual space travel. It could have been something like Moon or Sunshine where the themes of psychosis in the environment of space are explored. I did like the idea of quantum physics but the theme of love linking everything together was quite absurd in this type of film. Nolan's direction was really good and the acting was good. The plot is okay, from a science fiction standpoint but 3 hours for this type of film is quite long. It wasn't boring, don't get me wrong, the length was just unnecessary and I would have even supported the idea of a sequel if it was reduced by about 2 hours and was effectively looked over and included the necessities for carrying the plot. I liked certain things in it but overall, it was too flustered with different ideas. It could have been a good set up for a sequel if it just focused on the space travel which the title refers to and cut out completely the link between the fate of the world and the theme of love. It just seemed forced.

I'm not saying that this is a bad movie, I'm just being critical on its flaws because it is being glorified as a masterpiece and any movie which is at that status needs to have its contents analysed and thought about. It was a brilliant cinema experience I'm just saying, don't be so quick to judge it as a masterpiece before looking at its problems and seeing if anything can be improved. One of Nolan's best films but not a masterpiece in my opinion. Probably about an 8.1 out of 10 for me. That's not a bad score.

I would also like to congratulate Nolan in making this film. I've heard he had to do a lot of research and phenomenal effort must have been put in to film many scenes. Also some of the best special effects I have ever seen. Thanks for the film.

That's a harsh score, even though this movie is very flawed and full of plot holes. I'd say about a 6.8.

INTERSTELLAR - SPOILERS

Why is Interstellar so highly praised by general audiences? Is it because it is great visually or because of its high brow concepts? The film starts interestingly in the near-future where there is a famine and only vegetation is the remaining food left. The film draws in the viewer with the initial dynamic of the family and apocalypse which admittedly got me immersed.

The whole first act focuses on the situation with the family and I wished it stayed like that. The characters are all shown to be close and I bought their relationships. The film fails as the space exploration starts. The astronaut crew are pretty bland, boring and generic. The laughable moment in which Anne Hathaway talks about love is the volta of the movie; the turning point in which the intrigue and quality of the movie slowly falls. The whole movie is set up to be some sort of allegory for love and the human condition and I guess that's nice, but not how it is presented in Interstellar.

This movie is 3 hours long. Why? This runtime is seriously way too long. The film has sloppy dialogue and characters. These general points are too vague to express my loathing of the film so I'll be more specific.

Only McConaughey seemed significant and actually got me to sympathize with him. The rest of the characters don't seem to have much depth to them and never presented themselves as interesting nor realistic in their environment. Damon was a laughable mess. Damon, what are you doing, man? Mann is extremely out of place in this story and is only used in the movie to extend the runtime a bit more and to kill off the black guy (sorry, I don't know his name). Damon then succeeds in making me question Nolan significantly in the docking sequence. He is supposed to be the BEST of them isn't he? His crash is so forced that I looked away and at the audience in my theater.

Now, the black hole sequence is one which is not poignant in any way at all, it's a GCI-fest to show off Nolan's intellect and vision. Obvious time-travel flaws are present in this movie which are in nearly every time-travel movie, so whatever. Morse code! Time travel, wristwatch morse code! Now that's where the ambition lies. I can't believe he did this. Morse code, please.

Convenience should be the tagline of this feature as the final 20 minutes make me cringe and question those who like this movie.

Michael Cain's character's twist is somewhat a pointless addition to the melodrama also.

The emotional moments in the first half was good stuff, I liked that. The visuals were beautiful and acting was good also. The writing was the major problem.

I did understand the movie by the way. 5.4/10 for now.

I also don't see the links to 2001 either. Why? Because the movie was somewhat ambiguous and set in space?

My opinion is that this movie is a masterpiece. Didn't think it was the first time, but the second time I was more than blown away. I'm sure there are few people who will read this, and those who will are most likely gonna call me a Nolan fanboy, but: I don't care. Go on. Do it. I dare ya. No but seriously, personally this movie is the greatest theater experience I've ever had.

My review:
This is one of the greatest theatre experiences I have ever seen. Though there are a lot of problems, the experience is so damn enthralling that I really do love this film. There are a lot of problems however. One major is that there are several plot holes (though I hate it when a time travel movie gets bashed for having plot holes in the time travel, because that's almost inevitable). But the plot holes that weren't about the time travel were huge, and I don't usually notice plot holes. The other extremely huge problem which could have been easily resolved, and put this film at a masterpiece status, was the god damn exposition.It should have been more ambiguous with its ending and not force feed it to the audience. There was less wonder invoked by the film because of this, and I truly believe this would have been a sci-fi masterpiece if these issues were cleaned up. An ambiguous ending would have caused massive discussion about the meaning behind it, and would have made the film ingenious and faaaaar more thought=provoking. And what I believe makes a sci-fi great is how thought-provoking it is, and this was on a level introducing pretty newer sci-fi ideas. It is a fantastic experience though, and it is thought-provking in the ideas it introduces, but the huge amount of exposition left vast amounts of wasted potential to expand upon these ideas. A bit of the dialogue (especially about love) is a bit cringey, though the performances by Matthew McConaughey and Michael Caine are amazing. - 9/10 because a flawed masterpiece is better than a perfect "okay" movie.

This movie was good ,I would even say really really good but
I was never engulfed in it.The dialouges are quite cheesy ,and the ending was bit let-down too.The story was a bit convoluted too.I like watching movies which have a non-linear storytelling or ask questions to the viewers,but Interstellar was a bit too much for me.Cassey Affleck was wasted in this movie.And Cooper loving only his daughter and not showing much affection to his son(who barely gets screen-time) doesn't proves him do be much of a good father IN MY OPINION.The whole cryptic messages didn't involve my attension either
Matt Damon as the intriem villain was really well done though.

All in all a mid-level Nolan movie.7-10

Saw it today and loved it. I understand the exposition complaints and are warranted, but there's just so much that I love about the movie that makes me wink at the excessive exposition.
