Guardians of the Galaxy vs. Interstellar



I'm surprised our fellow Master of Squares hasn't said a thing about Interstellar. Maybe because he can't use his vague 'it has a higher percentage on RottenTomatoes therefore I somehow proved it's better' argument anymore, or because he doesn't like admitting that it's a disappointment?

Give it time, my friend, give it time....

Full of riveting performances, strong, though-provoking ideas, and stunningly brilliant cinematography, Nolan once again proves why he is the biggest innovators of cinema (Both Modern and classic), He has taken clinical sci-fi stories such as 2001 and implemented the heart and soul that many of them have sorely lacked in previous eras. As 2001 was an allegory to religious belief, Interstellar is to the notion that Man is an ever evolving species who owe their development to themselves, not other worldly beings who "bless" us with their assistance. The visuals are simply out of this world (LITERALLY!). The sheer scope of space exploration conveyed in this instant classic is sure to inspire future generations, both in the art of film making and space exploration. It also uses the aspect of "No sound in space" to the best ability I've ever seen, Used to convey awe, tension, action, terror, and to simply progress a story without any lulls (The revolving Docking Sequence still gets me as I sit here typing), unlike other aspects of entertainment which use the "no sound" aspect in dull time wasters without any emotional attachment or story progression (i.e. Firefly). As stated, there isn't a single bad performance throughout this film, and several of them are outstanding, such as McConaughey, particularly during his viewing of the 23 years of logs, with Anne Hathaway, Matt Damon, Michael Caine and Jessica Chastain rounding out an impressive supporting cast, alongside a wonderfully antagonistic robot named Tars, whose charm and wit will give any flesh-and-blood character in the upcoming year of cinema a run for their money. The plot has various twists and turns, both large and small (as expected with Nolan) with all of them feeling organic and hitting all the right beats. Overall, this is easily the best sci-fi film in decades and another feather in the cap of Nolan's increasingly impressive resume.

And there he is!

He's so blinded that he doesn't even see we were talking about him.


I waited soo long for the guardians. I adored the movie . But interstellar wins here .. Its too awesome

If you told me a year ago that I would prefer GOTG to Interstellar, I wouldn't have believed you...and yet here we are.

And BTW Interstellar crushes here...

Interstellar was a disappointment, but I haven't been able to stop thinking about it since seeing it. Because of that, I assume I'll enjoy it more the second time around. For now, though, Guardians of the Galaxy crushes it hard.

Interstellar. No Contest!

One of my favorite films of the year vs one of my least favorite. Guardians just did not do much for me. I can see why others enjoy it but it just wasn't for me. Interstellar has a few flaws but I can easily overlook them since the film was so strong as a whole.

I was expecting to be disappointed by Interstellar, and I was amazed. It's not perfect but I loved the emotion in the film. Guardians was a good time, but I prefer Interstellar.

Insterstellar is indeed a huge disappointment.

Guardians of the Galaxy was a very fine comic book movie. It's blend of comedy and action and sci-fi was tremendous. Interstellar was a good Christopher Nolan flick but doesn't quite reach the quality or entertainment of Guardians of the Galaxy.

Interstellar's themes, performances, story and overall aura impressed me more than Guardians did.

Interstellar easily, just because of Zimmer.

Guardians I guess

Interstellar sucked donkey balls. There, it had to be said.

Interstellar pretty easilly. Guardians was fun, but it's kinda just empty calories.

Is this a joke? Guardians was a joke and a pop corn flick. Extremely disappointing Interstellar is a great film

Gotta go with Guardians....

i just realized how the moment squaremaster quit the site mystic spoon did too, he really can't survive without square

Interstellar was easily a better film by a country mile but Guardians was still a lot of fun.

Interstellar is one of the best movies of all time. It's funny seeing Marvel fanboys going hard on that Nolan fan up there. Frickin' ridiculous.
