“We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible”

Interstellar was a movie I watched a couple months back and I told myself I would come back to it. The reason for this is because I started this almost three hour movie at 10:00 pm at night. And watching it at a reasonable time did make a difference.

First off, this film is absolutely beautiful. Just like Dunkirk, Nolan movies continue to look stunning to watch. We also see some great performances from Matthew McConaughey in the role with help from Anne Hathaway, Matt Damon, Michael Caine and the list goes on. 

With actually taking the time to watch this and pick up on all of the storyline, I’ve got to say I really enjoyed this one. I am not the biggest fan of space travel movies (Ad Astra and A Space Odyssey are two movies I really don’t like) and I still enjoyed this one. There’s still a lot of technical mumbo-jumbo that is hard to follow but overall the story was more clear. I don’t see myself watching this again anytime soon because of the length, but that doesn’t mean I enjoy it. I still don’t think it’s one of Nolan’s best, or an masterpiece, but it’s good none the less.

Closing Remarks 
Overall, Interstellar is a mind and time-bending space thriller with a star studded cast. Would I recommend this movie? Yes. Nolan continues to impress me on his movie making efforts and now that I have see all 10 films, I anticipate Tenet even more now.
