Interstellar Review


A team of explorers travel through a wormhole in space in an attempt to ensure humanity's survival.

Interstellar (2014) is an adventure science fiction movie that I recommend for everyone to see. It was truly amazing. Director and co-writer Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight (2008), The Dark Knight Rises (2012), Inception (2010), Batman Begins (2005)) did a phenomenal job directing his tenth movie. The movie contains sexual reference that children will not know, violence, bad language explosions, fighting, drinking and some pretty terrifying moments.

The movie is about astronauts traveling through a wormhole in an expedition to find a new planet because Earth is about to become unlivable. Earth is gradually dying because the soil is not able to grow crops except corn, and that will lead to all humans becoming extinct. Cooper ( Matthew McConaughey - Dallas Buyers Club (2013), The Wolf of Wall Street (2013), Mud (2012)) is a former NASA pilot that now lives on a farm with his father-in-law and kids. His son Tom (Timothée Chalamet - Men, Women & Children (2014), Clown (2008), One and Two (2015)) is a teenager and his daughter Murphy (Mackenzie Foy - The Conjuring (2013), The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 (2012), Ernest & Celestine (2012)) is ten years old. Murphy and Cooper investigate Murphy’s room after she claims that her room is being haunted by ghosts. They found the ghost that is actually a coded message being sent from NASA. Professor John Brand ( Michael Caine - The Dark Knight (2008), Batman Begins (2005), The Prestige (2006), Children of Men (2006)) told them that there might be a new planet that will help them survive. He told them that an alien intelligence created the wormhole that leads to a new planet.

After a few events, Cooper pilots a spacecraft in an effort to get astronaut data with his crew. They pilot through the wormhole and reached Miller; that proves to be an unlivable place for them. One of Coopers team members is killed by a wave as they try to recover Miller’s data. The wave delayed them from leaving Miller. 23 years had gone pass by the time Cooper and his crew returned to the spacecraft because one hour on Miller equals to seven years on Earth. Upon their return, Cooper meets Murphy ( Ellen Burstyn - Requiem for a Dream (2000), The Exorcist (1973), The Fountain (2006)) who is an adult now and a NASA scientist. There is so much more to this movie, but I will not be the one to spoil it for you. Do yourselves a favor and go watch this masterpiece.

Interstellar is going to rock your mind to the point where all you would want to do is sit on the edge of your seat to watch this movie and not have any popcorn or drinks to disturb you from missing a second of it. The film received a score of ten from me, so I found nothing wrong with this film and found everything perfectly done. The actors all did an amazing job with their parts. The cinematography, sets, lights, music and just everything about the movie was splendid.
