I’m still blown away by the “Interstellar” movie… it really was amazing…

Could Christopher Nolan finally win his first “Best Picture” for his sci-fi epic, “Interstellar”??? I don’t know. We’ll have to wait and see. The Academy have never been all that friendly with sci-fi movies over the years with the Oscars. There were several sci-fi movies that got nominated for Best Picture such as “Gravity”, “Inception”, “District 9”, “Avatar”, “E.T.”, “A Clockwork Orange”, “Her”, and the original “Star Wars” movie. Yes, they all got Oscar nominated for Best Picture but of course, none of them got the win. So technically a sci-fi film never won a Best Picture nod before.

Could the Oscars this year make history and give their first sci-fi Best Picture win to “Interstellar”??? Like I said we’ll have to wait and see. I can see “Interstellar” winning for other categories such as Best original screenplay, best sound, best musical score, best cinematography, etc.

I also forgot to mention in my “Interstellar” review that the score to the film was killer. I’ve been impressed with Hans Zimmer as of late. He’s the best musical composer for movies today, in my opinion. I think I’m gonna end up buying the soundtrack for “Interstellar” pretty soon.

I would like to see it in theater again but the new “Hunger Games: Mockingjay” is coming out in a few weeks so I’m probably gonna see that instead. “Interstellar” really was a mind blowing masterpiece.

I’ve followed Christopher Nolan’s movies for years. The man’s a fucking genius for sure. Christopher Nolan is smart and honest. He knows what he wants. He’s very good at trying to get from what he sees in his head to the screen.

I think there’s gonna be a sequel to “Interstellar”, though ’cause the ending kind of left open for another movie. Could “Interstellar” end up being a trilogy of some sorts???

You should really go see the movie before it stops playing. It’s a long one but worth sticking through, trust me. So far, this is the best movie of 2014.


Film Review: “Interstellar”

Starring: Matt McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Michael Caine, John Lithgow
Directed by Christopher Nolan

Today, I’ve just seen “Interstellar” and here is my review…

Plot/Synopsis: In the near future, Earth has been devastated by drought and famine, causing a scarcity in food and extreme changes in climate. When humanity is facing extinction, a mysterious rip in the space-time continuum is discovered, giving mankind the opportunity to widen its lifespan. A group of explorers must travel beyond our solar system in search of a planet that can sustain life. The crew of the Endurance are required to think bigger and go further than any human in history as they embark on an interstellar voyage into the unknown. Coop, the pilot of the Endurance, must decide between seeing his children again and the future of the human race.

Like I said before, I am a huge fan of Christopher Nolan movies. I’ve seen all of his movies even “The Prestige” and “Inception”. Finally, the long-awaited, “Interstellar” hits the theaters and I just saw it today.

Like I predicted, “Interstellar” is another winner for Nolan. No surprise because all of his movies are amazing and so was this one. I would say though that “Interstellar” is definitely the best film of his career. It’s very rare in Hollywood that the writing in movies would be perfect… well the writing in this movie was perfect. In order to appreciate this movie and to be able to understand it, though, you must be a fan of sci-fi.

In this film, you’re not gonna see a popcorn action film. This isn’t Star Wars or a Michael Bay movie. This film is 100% sci-fi. This movie will remind you of films such as “2001: A Space Odysey”, “Solaris”, “Close Encounters”, “Starman”, “Enemy Mine”, “Star Trek: The Motion Picture”, etc. “Interstellar” is gonna be like those kind of movies. So don’t expect “Interstellar” to be full of laser guns and trying to survive against aliens.

I thought the acting by everyone was phenomenal. Like usual, Nolan is genius at choosing his casting. I thought this was Matt McConaughey’s best role. John Lithgow has a very short role in this movie but he still killed it like usual. Lithgow have been one of my favorite actors for a long time. There’s also a surprise cameo appearance by an actor named William Devane who is mostly famous for James Heller in “24”. Matt Damon also has a role. I’m not a big Matt Damon fan but his role was pretty interesting in this film. I actually liked Matt in that role that he played. I don’t wanna give too much away.

The movie was 3 hours long… yeah, it’s a long one but I wasn’t bored one bit. I didn’t yawn at all and kept my eyes on the screen throughout the whole thing. I didn’t fall asleep, thankfully. This film has Nolan’s most impressive film making, yet. The visuals and cinematography were mind blowing. Do you think the visuals and cinematography were impressive in, “Inception”? Well, you haven’t seen anything yet!!! Wait until you see what “Interstellar” looks like.

This is also a pretty sad film, though as I’ll admit it… I almost had tears myself walking out of the theater. This was a beautifully made film and it’s a masterpiece by Nolan. It’s gonna get some Oscar nominations. Not sure if it’ll get a nod for “Best Picture” but ya never know. I hope it’ll at least get a nomination for “Best Picture”. This film was definitely way better than “Gravity”.

The story to “Interstellar” maybe hard to follow and the story will get weird but like I said, you have to be a fan of sci-fi in order to get it. You shouldn’t just see this film just because your favorite actor is in it. I thought the film was amazing. So far, this is definitely the best film of the year and I’m definitely gonna get the BluRay when it comes out.

Definitely go see this one. I’ll give “Interstellar” a score of 5 out of 5 as in excellent!!!


Gonna see the movie “Interstellar” tomorrow…

The next movie I’m planning on seeing in theater is Christopher Nolan’s new flick, “Interstellar”, the new sci-fi movie with Matt McConaughey and Ann Hathaway. I’m looking forward to that one. As some of you know, I am a huge Christopher Nolan fan. He’s one of my favorite directors and I’ve watched all of his movies in the past.

While Nolan has done a great job with the three Batman movies, I’m glad he’s finally done with the Batman films. People want Nolan to keep doing more but hey, give the guy a break, ya know? Chris Nolan is a film maker and storyteller. He’s gonna wanna move on to other things at some point and he finally did exactly that after more than a decade of making Batman movies. I can’t blame him for wanting to move on and he must of finally gotten sick of it. Let him make other movies. He can tell other great stories besides Batman.

I’m looking forward to “Interstellar” tomorrow. Yeah, the movie is 3 hours long but knowing how Christopher Nolan movies are, he’s good at making long movies that feel like they’re short if you know what I mean. The Batman films were like 2 hours and 45 minutes, the pacing went by pretty fast. Nolan is a genius at that.

I love Nolan’s directing style and he’s a good storyteller. I’m not lying when I said I’ve seen all of his movies. I’ve even seen his very first film, “Following” which is also very good. So far, I think Nolan’s best films are “Memento” and “The Dark Knight: Rises” but that opinion could change when I see “Interstellar” tomorrow. “Interstellar” is gonna be long but I’m gonna stick through it. Looking forward to it and will review it, of course.

I’ve been looking forward to “Interstellar” ever since the film has been announced which was like what, a year ago?


Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar” trailer arrives online!!!

When Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar” was first announced last year, I’m sure everybody expected it to be a dark & scary sci-fi with impressive visual effects and CGI and stuff — kind of like Ridley Scott’s “Prometheus” — turns out that “Interstellar” looks to be a more realistic space movie. “Interstellar” looks interesting to me so I’m looking forward to it. It has a large cast of big name actors.




Report: Anne Hathaway is the female lead for Christopher Nolan’s, “Interstellar”…

Well, it’s no surprise that the “Interstellar”, movie by Christopher Nolan is planning to have a female lead ’cause I already called on it. It is also no surprise that Nolan is going to start hiring cast members from his Batman trilogy. Anne Hathaway is nearing a deal to star alongside, Matthew McConaughey, for “Interstellar”, the space travel sci-fi movie. Spoiler alert: Matt and Anne are both lovers in the film, HA! Kidding, I don’t know about that honestly, but it wouldn’t surprise me if Anne is the love interest for Matt.

Who is next to get casted for this movie? Morgan Freeman? Michael Caine? Christian Bale? Aaron Eckhart?

Deadline reports.

Say what you want about Anne Hathaway, but I always loved her and admired her. I’ve been watching her films for a long while. Speaking of Anne Hathaway, I bought the film, “Les Miserables”, on Blu Ray last week. Haven’t watched it yet, but I will when I finish watching the “Game of Thrones – Season 2” DVD box set.

I still stand by it that “Les Miserables”, was the best movie of 2012. It really was a great film and that should have been the one to get the BEST PICTURE win. Anne Hathaway was obviously the best part of that movie, though. I’ll re-watch that movie on Blu Ray this weekend, probably.



Reports: Matthew McConaughey, is game for Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar”!!!

As soon as Christopher Nolan announced a release date for his next sci-fi movie, “Interstellar”, his first interest to play the leading role was actor, Matthew McConaughey. Nolan wasted no time to get into negotiations with McConaughey, and it seems that the actor is definitely game to starring the leading ’cause he just confirmed it. McConaughey, is officially set for the lead.

Still no plot details and no information on what character, McConaughey, will be playing. Even though, that there is no plot or synopsis, you can get the hint with the title, “Interstellar”. What is “interstellar”? It’s a location of travelling among the stars, like the Milky Way for example. So, it’s definitely gonna be a space travel kind of movie!

I sure hope the story will be interesting, and I hope the plot will have nothing to do with evil aliens and other space monsters. We’ve had enough of those.

See the story, here.

Next, we should see who gets the big female lead, and other supporting characters. We should expect another big movie, full of big name actors.



Report: Christopher Nolan interested in Matthew McConaughey for, “Interstellar”???

Christopher Nolan, seems to be already on the move to his next movie, “Interstellar”, a sci-fi film, and look like he wants Matthew McConaughey to play the leading role. No deal yet, Nolan just asked him. What is it with Nolan’s obsession with big name actors in his films? Still no plot details for “Interstellar”, yet, but you probably won’t be hearing of a plot synopsis for a while ’cause like always Nolan is also obsessed with secrecy. He likes to keep everything quiet until the actual movie comes out. Matthew is a talented actor, though, he’s one of the best in the industry. I like Matt’s southern accent. His speaking voice is cool.

Deadline reports.


Report: Christopher Nolan announces his next Batman-less directed project, “Interstellar”, to hit theaters, Nov. 7th, 2014…

You see, Christopher Nolan, is a film director and storyteller. He can’t direct superhero movies for the rest of his life, ya know? He needs to move on to other things and tell other stories. Give him a chance with his other work, and you would see that the man is a phenomenal storyteller and film maker. Christopher Nolan, announced, that he will direct a film called, “Interstellar” next, which looks to be a sci fi film. The film will be hitting theaters and Imax, Nov.7th, 2014.

No plot yet, but you probably won’t hear of the plot for a long while ’cause as you all know, Christopher Nolan, is obsessed with secrecy.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Nolan tries to get Christian Bale or Leo Dicaprio to star in the leading role for, “Interstellar”, though. Sounds like it’s going to be an epic sci-fi/action adventure, so expect another big CGI and special effects movie from Nolan.
