Interstellar Review

Future… Many people try to predict where we will be in years. Many try to come up with a theory to keep our world running. Not many succeed. Christopher Nolan is known for his mind blowing films that are considered milestones in cinematography. Inception, Shutter Island, Batman and Interstellar does not disappoint us. Lets start with some basic information. Interstellar – released on October 29, 2014 in London. Rated 8.8 by IMDB. Jonathan Nolan has assisted his brother in the writing of the film. The story line is very active. “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.” Written by Warren D'Souza  Interstellar is an Adventure/Sci-fi movie that is created using multiple techniques of special effects creation as well as incredibly on point cinematography. The Budget of Interstellar is $165 million and has collected more than $671 million for less than 5 month. Along with the crew of professional film-makers, this movie was written and created by a team of scientists and astronomers. Many of the theories that are shown in Interstellar are possible, but not all of them are proved. Christopher Nolan managed to create a Sci-fi movie but keeping it real and scientific. The cast of Interstellar could have not been chosen better. Stars like Mathew McCounaghey and Anne Hathaway happened to be the main actors for this film and there could be no one who would act for this film better. Speaking of my own opinion. I have watched this movie once and had mixed feelings. Mixed in terms of – good feelings and very good feelings. It left a mark in my mind for a while not in terms of context and plot, but in terms of incredible cinematography provided by Hoyte van Hoytema. The whole film was followed by amazing soundtracks of Hanz Zimmer that created the mood and set the pace for the film. I highly recommend everyone to watch this film at least once and I promise, this is time not wasted.
