‘Interstellar’ Movie Summary
Interstellar takes place in the near future. Joe Cooper is an ex-science engineer and pilot who now farms land with his daughter, Murph, and son, Tom, in the American Midwest. During this time, mighty sandstorms devastate Earth’s crops to the point that food begins to run out on the planet. Soon, humanity will come to an end from starvation. Interestingly, N.A.S.A. has a base near Cooper’s home, and they ask him to go on a mission with a few other scientists. Cooper has the right combination of scientific intellect and flight experience to send himself and the others through a wormhole. This mission will help humanity find a new planet to live on now that ours is doomed. Cooper must now make the difficult decision to either go; and possibly never see his children again, or stay; and risk humanity never finding another planet to live on.

You’re running out of room in your top 100, Lori! Don’t waste it on this:)
This one isn’t that great…it’s okay, but not great.
I did like this movie when I saw it in 2014, but as Patrick said there are a lot of problems. He briefly mentioned it, but it seemed odd the way the movie made it all about the father/daughter bond and gave his son such short shrift. Made it hard to connect on an emotional level they wanted you to have if the man seemed to only care about one of his children. And they even tried to make the son sort of a villain at one point(where he bizarrely didn’t want to give his own children medical treatment, punched topher grace in the face) Nolan is a good director, but pretty bad writer, especially with dialogue. Seems to be a pattern in most of his films. Probably why Dunkirk is so good, there is almost no dialogue.
I’d agree with that (although I have not seen Dunkirk, yet). Memento is my favorite of his films closely followed by The Prestige.
Have you seen Dunkirk yet? Would be a good choice for concessions – if it ever returns 🙂
I haven’t seen it, but Shane A liked it…and I think we will do occasional Concessions. We are planning on reviewing The Life Aquatic for it later this month.
So you guys have reviewed more Nolan films than Kubrick, Scorsese, Wilder, Kurosawa, Altman…that’s crazy.
That’s just the luck of the draw. There will definitely be more from the others.
Looking forward to Baby Jane. What is the other film slated for September? This year is going fast!
That and The Deer Hunter, and how many shopping days is it until Xmas?
who picked deer hunter? Should be a good podcast.
That’s a Lori pick.
Well that is a surprise, might be the darkest film she’s picked. Wonder if she likes heavens gate:)
Oh, I hope not! I don’t ever want to watch that one again!
