I've been wanting to go see the movie badly... Of course I don't want to be the only loser in the theatre by myself so I've been trying to lure some people to go with me... I was planning to see it over the weekend but I had to cancel when I found out an acquaintance of mine was going be celebrating her child's 2nd birthday.:blink:


Pretty good, I think! A lot of flaws, scientific, plot-related and otherwise, but still quite good.

The soundtrack was quite cool.

Is the soundtrack composed of theatricals or does it have some dark underground electronic elements to it.

Overpowering wind organ arpeggios with Inception-y theatricals, to describe it reductively. It sounds lame, but the effect was a little awesome.

'Dark underground electronic' wouldn't have really fit at all, IMO.

So, my take: really liked the movie overall, a must-see for every Orbinaut/KSPer. It goes far enough into the "fiction" realm of science-fiction that mistakes are less noticeable than, say, Gravity.

Finally got to a showing!

Personally I feel that this was an excellent and important film.

I can see how someone might say it is derivative to 2001:SO or other flicks. However making such a scoffing and dismissive judgement is, in my opinion, missing the entire mark.

I believe this movie is important because it is mainstream, accessible, and self explaining.

The topic of the movie brings obscure theoretical physics into the public eye. The discussion about humanity isn't original, but most people watching this movie will never read Pale Blue Dot or read books about relativity.

When I left the theater, my main thought was "I hope this is the 2001:SO of the younger generation"

Actually I believe it has a better message. I'd like to elaborate on some of this but I have to get ready for wok now :coffee:

I thought it's lot of like 2001 at the moment I was watching this film, but I don't think it's dissmisive comment. Taking that 2001 is often considered best of genre, for me it's more like honor than diss.
Also feel like this is really important film and 'Space Odyssey of our generation'. Exactly agree with you, that mainstream side of this piece is part of it's awesomess and importance.

The Endurance is powered by tokamak fusion generators, according to the interactive website which takes some time to load.

But I just realized... where are the radiators?

Just saw it, and it is awesome!

The plot holes aren't that bad, and are pretty necessary for the plot.

From what I hear it's a good movie seriously hampered by explaining itself way too much. As one of my favourite critics put it "...you get the impression that the cast is constantly afraid of Neil DeGras Tyson barking in on them to check their numbers any moment now".

I didn't feel like the movie suffered from this, but maybe that's just that this fourm understands this stuff.

For me, the most representative part of the movie was ˙ǝǝɹɥʇ ʇɔɐ ɟo ʇsǝɹ ǝɥʇ pǝɹoɹɹᴉɯ ʇɐɥʇ ʎɐʍ ɐ uᴉ uoᴉsuǝʇ ǝɥʇ ʇlᴉnq ǝuǝɔs ǝloɥʍ ǝɥʇ puɐ (looɔ sɐʍ sdɯɐlɔ ƃuᴉʞɔop ǝɥʇ ɥʇᴉʍ ɔuʎs ǝɥʇ ʇɥƃnoɥʇ I) ǝɯosǝʍɐ sɐʍ ǝuǝɔs ǝɥʇ ʇnoɥƃnoɹɥʇ dnplᴉnq ɔᴉsnɯ ǝɥ┴ ˙pǝɹnɔɔo ǝuǝɔs ƃuᴉʞɔop ǝɥʇ ǝɹǝɥʍ ʇɹɐd ǝɥʇ

This movie is easily up there with other greats (Gravity, 2001). The nods to 2001 also were nice.

I saw the movie today. I liked it, and that's about all I have to say as a recommendation right now. It's definitely better than Gravity and Europa Report.

Did anyone bother to at least estimate the amount of deltaV they used in the film?
At least approximately, since we don't know the orbits of the planets accurately.

I haven't seen the movie, but my advice would be "Don't". The result would probably just annoy you, and ruin a good story.

Space enthusiasts aren't the only group that get annoyed when their "area of expertise" is portrayed unrealistically in movies/TV shows. Imagine how for example soldiers, lawyers, doctors or crime scene investigators feel when writers tears up the rulebook to make a plot for some story. A very well known "fact" is that the captain of a ship can marry people. That has never been true and was just invented by screenwriters.

Saw the movie yesterday. Overall, I was extremely underwhelmed. The graphics/visuals were good, and that's just about where my praise ends.

Other than that I was just really disappointed. They threw in a lot of science "stuff," but got it wrong in a lot of places, which to me is just worse than not even trying at all. I'd rather have something like Avatar that doesn't even really TRY to be science-fact, rather than something that claims to try but fails. Being cavalier with science when you claim to be trying to be factual is fine if your plot justifies it, but there just wasn't enough here to justify things.

The audio levels seemed poorly done in a lot of places, and it was at times difficult to hear the dialogue due to the loud music. I guess it wasn't that big of a deal, since the dialogue was often rather cheesy anyway.

Incomplete list of things that bothered me (decode here):

I would like someone to confirm that the design of Ranger has analogies with SpaceShipTwo, but-swept wings that fold up to get resistance and braking, as with the balls-pen. addition to position the vehicle during re-entry Is it about something the team and Burt Rutan's Scaled Composites, or just a pretty design?

I didn't hold the science in the movie to a high standard which is why I was able to enjoy it. That said, although I like it, Interstellar is certainly not a great movie. Some of the science also bothers me.

I still wouldn't consider it fair to compare Interstellar to Armageddon; the latter has 168 scientific mistakes.
