Interstellar, a top contender for the Golden Globes, is a really hard movie to describe. On one hand, you have an incredible sci-fi space movie about saving the human race. On the other, however, there is the last act of the movie, which you will either love or hate.
Interstellar is at its best when it focuses on the human relationships. The interactions between Cooper (played by the incredible Matthew McConaughey) and his daughter Murphy are easily the best parts of the movie. What makes the scenes so powerful are the fact that there isn’t a chance to have many of those moments.
The majority of the movie takes place in space on the search for a new planet that can sustain human life. I can’t go into too many details, since the movie thrives on the unknown, but I can say that the places you’ll see are absolutely breathtaking. But again, the human element is what makes this movie so good. There are so many things I wish I could say, but I can’t without getting into major spoiler territory.
Sadly, as I said before, the last act is a love it or hate it scenario. I personally wasn’t a huge fan but a lot of the people I know loved it. It should be said that even if you don’t like it, it doesn’t ruin the entire movie, but it definitely will stick out to you. I’m not trying to steer people away from this movie, but just be aware that not everything about this movie is what the trailers will show you.
Interstellar is a great movie. It’s beautifully shot, and has some incredible characters. Christopher Nolan once again delivers a great movie, and even with everything I’ve said, you should definitely do yourself a favor and see it. I can’t wait to see what his next movie will be.
