Going to see Interstellar tonight. With the risk of sounding like a fanboy I'm looking forward to it because Neil Degrasse Tyson seemed to think it a much more scientifically sound film than Gravity.

I saw two movies yesterday, Big Hero 6 and Interstellar. I liked Big Hero 6, I did not like Interstellar.

I hope you're right, JP, because I didn't care much for Gravity.

I have some gripes about Interstellar, but it's a visually stunning movie, even moreso than Gravity.

Dialogue was pretty shitty in some parts in Interstellar, and there were some plot moments that didn't make sense. I won't spoil them here but if you have any sense you'll notice them after the movie ends. Also, there was one central character that was totally underdeveloped. Kind of annoying.

But it was worth the money to see that shit on the biggest screen/soundsystem as possible. Some truly stunning scenes visually.

I do like the part where the robot does the impossible and attaches the space craft together with the piano organ like sounds in the back ground.

They should used that for dracula imo.

ok party hard!

I keep hearing tons of praise about Interstellar, I think I'll go see it pretty soon. I actually visited the cor today to see if anyone else was talking about it, hmm.

I thought Interstellar was fantastic. A sci fi fan's wet dream. I thought at times it was trying to be a little 2001-ish, but overall it was really well done. Definitely worth seeing in theatres. It also is a good idea to have at least a rudimentary understanding of physics/relativity otherwise I could see people getting a bit lost.

I usually don't post along the lines of 'movie I just saw that you should, too', but "Nightcrawler" is easily the best film of the year, the best performance of Gyllenhaal's career, and the best piece of scathingly indicting cinema since "The Truman Show." See it!

Anyone else seen Nightcrawler yet? I saw it last night and was really, really impressed. It's a film carried by an extremely well written main character absolutely played out of his skin by Jake Gyllenhaal. The strength of the character carries you through the occasionally incredulous moments in the plot, and the tone is really daringly poised between black humour and deeply macabre drama. It's one of those films where you're laughing one minute and appalled the next, which is a really hard balance to strike. My only mild complaint is with the ending, which doesn't bother to resolve a couple of glaring questions the story sets up. But you all know how much of picky plot bastard I am.


A hard balance to strike, and for a movie that tries to pull off tonal shifts this dramatic, one that I don't think can be struck without it still being too jarring to the audience. But I also think the shift from horror to humor plays smoothly into the meta-purpose of the film, as if the camera occasionally pulls back in order to reveal the surrounding, satirical environment in which all of this is happening.

Funny enough, my only complaint (spoiler alert, I guess) is actually with the very beginning, when Bloom overpowers and mugs the security guard, stealing his watch. Bloom is not a physically but psychologically violent person, and aside from threat of violence much later in the film, we see no other instance or even suggestion of it.* I just felt that one particular scene was inconsistent with the slick, scrawny sociopath we would meet and see develop over the next two hours.

*EDIT: Actually, that's not entirely true, but that also just means more spoilers so whatever.

Yeah, having thought about the film a bit more I agree with you on that. It also gives the game away straight from the outset that he's a dangerous character, whereas I think it would work better if you only start to realise that in the second and third act. I kinda also felt the writing on the scene where the two news anchors were narrating the footage from the house to be verging towards Simpsons-esque silliness, a bit too Kent Brockman to be believable. But then the guy I saw it with spent a lot of time travelling in the States and he was adamant that US regional TV really is that absurd.

Like I said, there are a couple of rough edges to the film, but the strength of the character and the performance along with the audacious tonal balance more than compensate.

Nightcrawler was awesome. Definitely the most impressively played character in anything I've seen recently.

Want to see Interstellar but it seems like every fucking theater here is mobbed with holiday moviegoers on the weekends already.
