Interstellar is the latest epic from director Christopher Nolan. (Memento, Inception, & The Dark Knight Trilogy) It stars Matthew McConaughey as Cooper, a former pilot and now a farmer and father. Earth is slowly dying but one scientist in a secret facility, NASA Professor Brand (Michael Caine) finds a wormhole near Saturn that could be the answer to saving Earth. So Cooper and some other astronauts go out to basically save the earth by finding a place the human race can immigrate to.
There is a lot of great things in this movie. The actors and all of their performances are great. It was a little difficult to understand what McConaughey was saying sometimes, but he still delivers a strong performance especially when is has to act next to the girl who pays his daughter Murph. (Mackenzie Foy) The other main actors are good also, especially Jessica Chastain and Michael Caine. It’s got a fantastic score by Hans Zimmer, one that fits the look of the film, but isn’t overly bombastic like his score for Inception was. The cinematography is amazing, even during the CGI space sequences. Wally Pfister isn’t working with Nolan this time around because he was too busy with directing Transcendence. Hoyte van Hoytema, the cinematography behind Her is behind the camera, and he manages to capture some beautiful shots, especially with the IMAX cameras. This movie is best experienced in IMAX theaters.
