I weep for upon the deathbed of the poor Valvetime Forums. But if anyone is still here, shall we discuss this film? I recall an excellent discussion about Inception when it came out. First off, to get it out of everyone's systems, Nolan fanboys being what they are, I think we can all agree he's made some awesome films. Memento, The Prestige, The Dark Knight, Inception, *let's not talk about Rises, my goodness*, and now Interstellar. I found it thought provoking and awe-inspiring. It was a bit standard in its message about overpopulation and the coming Doom (but nonetheless necessary). But what I want to talk about is wormholes, time dilation in relativity and black holes. Also, the most contrasted reaction to the weirdest looking robots I've ever seen. Seriously, I saw them in the trailer and thought we had another Dark Knight Rises on our hands. Instead TARS turned out to be the best character in the movie. What did anyone think about the black hole? Presumably a lot of you guys are better read in hardcore astrophysics than me. I know everything that happens through it (over the event horizon, right?) is entirely Nolan's imagination, but could a spaceship (of any design) feasibly go through anything so volatile? From what I've read, the truth of the matter of black holes is that they just swallow matter and disintegrate it. How about the wormhole? Could anything realistically pass through a wormhole as it did in the film? Nolan really gets how to toy with emotions. He touched on it in Inception, but Interstellar screws around with the rules of time much more effectively, to produce these deeply sad moments that makes your heart beat faster at the implications. And it's implemented in such a cleverer way than Inception. I thought the special guest appearance was cool. It's neat that that can still happen without the lid being blown on it. Although a lot of people reacted hilariously when the guest star appeared. In case you haven't seen the film and decided you don't want to, and thus are reading this despite the spoiler warning, see it. If it doesn't blow your mind, it'll at least keep you entertained to a higher standard than most of the other garbage films out there. I've tried to be none too explicit with spoilers, but hey, you were warned.
