A Point of Geeks report

Christopher Nolan's Interstellar is a blockbuster that is equal parts spectacle and sound science. The science fiction epic was scripted in conjunction with renowned theoretical physicist, Kip Thorne, so the adventure could actually look the way Nolan depicted it. The attention to those details on both a large and minute scale are what make the movie worth viewing.

Neil deGrasse Tyson (Cosmos) is one of the world's most famous astrophysicists. In addition to being one of the Earth's most brilliant people, he is also a huge movie fan! He comments on the science found in various science-fiction films and likes to expose if they are theoretically sound or not. Tyson is like a Kung-fu master with his explanations of the most complex scientific concepts. If you found yourself in a rocketship with him, he would look in the glove compartment, grab the ship's pilot manual and throw it out the hatch. Tyson would then tell you, "Buckle up. I will explain it all to you on the way up and it will all make sense. Haha!" And it will, just like that.

Christopher Nolan's Interstellar has been the film of discussion as of late. Most highlight the visual aesthetic, lead actor, and epic scope of the film, while a large contingent of the audience felt burned by the ending, that found Matthew McConaughey floating in a parallel dimension. The decision that Nolan made to put his lead in a surreal and supernatural environment seemed arbitrary and unnecessary. However as Tyson deftly explains, it wasn't a supernatural ending, but a scientific one.

Mind. Blown. One thing is certain after seeing this clip. Love him or hate him, it is undeniable that Nolan does his homework before shooting a film. The explanation also doesn't make up for the ending that has Murphy dissing him after a hundred years. But you can't have it all.

Does this change your opinion of the Interstellar? Let us know on the comment boards!
