Tepid, at best

Oh my...

Another "Science Fiction" film made by those geniuses who never took a science class in life.

Interstellar, is a boring slow, plodding condescending type of film that thinks is much more smart than it realty is.

Cant't just people go and explore three planets without this melodramatic nonsense? Wouldn't it be much better if all this humanist approach was discarded in favor of a story based on the true adventure of traveling through a wormhole?

If people want drama there are a huge number of other (much better) films. If I want to feel bad I will watch Schindler's list... If I want some good Science Fiction I will watch Aliens. Is it that hard for people to get it?

This was supposed to be a science fiction adventure, for god's sake. Why do these genius have to butcher what could have been a great film with all this over-bloated sentimentalism, this sacchariny mess?

This is yet another proof that the masses are brain dead. They laud anything that is over complicated, with mindless twists, with some sort of stupid revelation as the work of a genius.

Interstellar is another extremely over rated film. It rivals Prometheus in stupidity!

I'd rather shoot a nail through my foot than ever watching it again...
