★★★★ / 👎
(If seeing Interstellar as I did—theatrically, in 70mm, on a genuine IMAX screen—is an option for you, stop reading reviews and go buy tickets. Seriously.)
I don’t care for most Nolan films, and I didn’t particularly care for this one, either. That said, Interstellar is a technical marvel which should absolutely be seen theatrically, with the best presentation available, and possibly more than once.
Despite the degree to which it buries 45 minutes of undeniable sensawunda under two hours of egregious bullshit.
Despite a script that literally telegraphs its story beats, and dialogue that had me rolling my eyes so hard I may have seen God.
Despite the most unpleasant Hans Zimmer score I have ever heard, which bludgeons the point home at all times with overbearing rumble and incredibly distracting mickymousing.
I hated the majority of this movie, and I can’t wait to see it again.
