Glorious, excellent movie
First of all i'll start saying that i would rate the film a 9.5 for it's minor flaws.
Yesterday i watched Chris Nolan's latest movie Interstellar. I'm a teenager and soon as i watched The dark knight and The prestige, i fell in love with his work. He is an ambitious and fantastic director of our generation. Seeing Interstellar was a must for me and my friends this year. Have to say that i was a little bit confused by the critical reception in the beginning, but the movie was just glorious for me.
The first 40 minutes or so on Earth were a great set-up for the next stage of the film. A flaw for me was the use of music during the drone scene. It was a lot better in the trailer without it. In fact, i didn't expect the 'ghost' stuff. For me, one of the best scenes in the whole film was Cooper leaving his home and his kids by car with the sound of the rocket launch and countdown that could be heard in the background. The noise followed by total silence in space was awesome.
I liked the crew, especially the robots, great design and they brought some comic relief during the film. The space scenes were glorious. Silence of space and the near Saturn scenes reminded me of 2001 and the greatness of space. Loved it. The whole wormhole trip kept me on the edge of my seat.
The water planet scenes were fantastic. The time dilation thing gave the scene a lot more tension. The death of Wes Bentley's character disappointed me, because i expected to see a lot more of him. Back on Endurance, i was shocked by the thing 23 years passed. Coop watching his children's videos nearly got me crying. Great acting by McConaughey, this man really turned his whole career around. One thing i didn't particularly like about the film was Matt Damon'character- Dr. Mann. I didn't understand the motivation for his actions. Yes, he was desperate, but why lie about the planet and kill Cooper, Romilly and Brand? Nevermind, the whole part was well directed and followed by one the best scenes i saw on the big screen- the docking scene in space. Mann trying to enter Endurance, Cooper and Brand trying to stop him, and then the big explosion and Cooper masterfully docking his spaceship. All with the help of Hans Zimmer's score(i'll write about it in the end of my review). The tension of the scene literally got me on the edge of the seat. Afterwards, the trip through the wormhole was another scene that reminded me that i was just watching a masterpiece. Cooper's trip to 'nowhere' also reminded of Bowman's solitude in space. Copper going into the 5th dimension and helping Murph save humanity impressed me. Nolan tried through this to go far beyond the space Sci-fi films boundaries. It was incredible. And the whole ending got me thinking about how great and ambitious were the ideas that helped make this fantastic film. I liked the part of Cooper meeting old Murph and she saying that no parent should see his children die.
Also i'd like to say Thanks to Hans Zimmer. He tried something new in Interstellar and some of the score he created was just wonderful. I still have the docking part music playing in my head.
Interstellar is a movie that may receive a lot of hate now, but it will be remembered as one of the best Christopher Nolan's films and maybe one of the best of 21st century. The acting, the visuals, the directing, the score, the cinematography were all top-notch.
