"Absolutely amazing"
5 stars"

After watching this I was totally up for a second watch, back to back. Absolutely mind blowingly amazing, I have no words.

"Worth it for the Robots"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Why I like it:

  1. The robots. Tars and Case are superb, get all the best dialogue lines, and are some of the most interesting animation examples in movies.
  2. The theme. I like the idea of humans being explorers again, hitting a higher purpose, and doing cool stuff in space.
  3. Acting. It's actually pretty decent, and uses its cast well. The only person I don't rate in this is Hathaway, and I think that's mostly because she's given limited room to move.

The bad-

  1. The scene at the end explaining the inside of a black hole and gravity / time distortion. The SFX are great, the acting is over the top and misses its mark.
  2. Inconsistent approach to take-off. Space ship leaves Earth on booster rockets at the start but then for every other planet can do orbital flights in a vehicle the size of a car.

It's fun, it's well worth living in the collection and I can see myself watching again (as I already have). Good acting, nice story, a shade long but doesn't skimp on detail or visual spectacle.

"Love & Hate"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I have mixed feelings, always had since I saw it at the cinema. In terms of spectacle, scale and overall visual execution: unprecedented, without a doubt some of the finest work ever shot for sci-fi. The atmosphere alone still makes me feel like it was a nightmare. There are some scenes that feel too surreal, or too hauntingly alien, it's hard to describe. I would recommend it to anyone. It was also the first digital soundtrack I ever bought, the music can stand by itself.

Just be aware it can be very sentimental. And I had no lack of invested emotion, but I was still disappointed by the ending, by some of the dialogue and the cliché message that love conquers all. I don't hate the message, I just don't like how it was forced. I thought it was under-appreciated by local critics the year it was out, and I still think it's overrated by the average viewer now. It's a good film, and I'm pickier about such sentiment than most.

With that said, I'm interested in many kinds of movies. Nolan's style even appeals to me, but I think I'm being fair headed in saying that he goes over-the-top with this one. I was not remotely bored by the length, I didn't have a problem with the technical explanation, I was not confused by the concepts (except for when it was intentional), in fact I love how this was the first time an accurate depiction of a black hole was ever rendered, even in the scientific field. I'm not even troubled by the sound mixing, I say that as a foley mixer myself. It's unusual but not a mistake.

The symbiosis between the realms of science, faith and humanities is explored enticingly. It's a very ambitious and challenging movie, so I'm still glad Nolan tried with it. I appreciate all these qualities, it's painfully close to being a masterpiece, but I don't want you getting high hopes for the writing, and I can't praise it without censuring the conclusion. Perhaps my aspirations for it were too great… This was supposed to be a quick review.

“Makes you aspire for it a lot” There we go.
