Half in the Bag: Interstellar

November 9, 20142,291 Comments

While Mr. Plinkett’s house floats across Lake Michigan, Mike and Jay attempt to wrap their brains around Christopher Nolan’s latest film Interstellar. Mike also discusses some previous films about black holes such as Event Horizon and The Black Hole.

    Too bad I haven’t seen it yet… I’ll be back to watch it later guys- see ya then! Until that time arrives I’ll lurk in the comments…

  • Haven’t watched yet, but going to say they’re wrong about everything just so I can get in an early comment.

  • Beauzooka

    I just got back from Interstellar, I was blown away. I have my doubts that Mike and Jay felt the same, so I will have a look 🙂

  • Mohamad Taufiq Morshidi

    Interstellar was good but overrated and Christopher Nolan is only good because of his brother Jonathan. And Chris needs to stop bothering Jonathan since Jon’s too buy with Person of Interest.

    TDKR sucked thanks to Goyer, and he ruined Man of Sears again by hiring David Hack Goyer.

  • Alex Howlett

    Gonna see Theory of Everything and rewatch Hawking (BBC version) before seeing Interstellar. Should provide some good background 🙂

    So are you guys still waiting for Putin to invade your country or something?

    Also, your Prime Minister looks like he came from a hardcore Nazisploitation sex flick.

    I can’t believe they’d put themselves in danger of alienating their huge Finnish fanbase like that.

    These skits stink, fellas. Just get to the damn reviews to save me having to skip through 4 minutes of unfunny.

    Apparently, Jay’s flies have access to a black hole.

    I think they just like trashing their sets.

    Eureka, it worked! All we needed was 2000 inane Halloween comments and a headless Canadian child.

    OMG. Mike watches Mad Men? I fucking love that show. I’m pissed by how many people refuse to watch it because it sounds ‘uninteresting’ or ‘boring’.

    After a long nine days it has finally come, we have been blessed with a new half in the bag and rich evans talking to us in twitch chat.

    Jay, I can see through your feeble attempt to make yourself less attractive to me. I luv me some smelly pits, come here and I’ll lick you clean!

    Don’t don’t don’t. UNINSTALL IT.

    etc.

  • mmp

    Good episode, as always.

    I also enjoyed the movie, but in my opinion you went too easy on it. The corny element was laughable. And you mention Gravity as bad example for science fiction mixed with melodrama, but that film only last 91 minutes.

  • ChuWii

  • Interstellhack? *starts the episode*

  • Lional punsalot

    Has anyone ever made a single movie that last for 5 hours or more?

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    When is an ambitious film not worth seeing?

    I liked this film, by the way, just didn’t love it.

  • omitted

    Gravity was a theme park ride, which I liked, but Interstellar is a real movie.

  • Harry Palm

    When it’s made by an overrated hack who only cares about Style and doesn’t give a shit about Substance.

    Holy crap, thank you Emporer Palpatine, I’m in your debt. Is there anyone you want…taken care of?

  • Palpatine

    Uh, because I was the Emperor of our whole fucking galaxy. And you were just the leader of a group of cartoon rabbits.

  • Oh yes. Have to agree.

    Does that make me a mindless Nolan fanboy?

    Why does your face look so weird here, Palpy? Chemical peel?

  • Ambiancé has a 70 minute trailer.

    He could have genuinely appreciated his own comment. Don’t stomp on his special snowflake before the Spring thaw. Everyone’s a winner!

  • mmp

    Good definition for Gravity. But both films are a perfect examples of sci-fi and drama gone bad.

    Good example for this concept done right? In my opinion, Moon.

  • Lional punsalot

    bingo

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    I love that show for its subtlety. You could watch it multiple times and find new layers to peel away and explore.

  • Palpatine

    Any one involved with Happy Madison would be nice.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    Not really.It does makes you sound a like a tool.I think the only things that should not be called movies are the kinds of things RLM watches on Best of The Worst.I mean there was the same amount of talent,creativity and love put into it as Interstellar.At some elements even more(they had to invent new camera rigs and cgi technology just to make the film possible in the first place).It’s just that it’s goal is different and that’s perfectly fine.

  • Anthony D.

    Honestly, there’s just something about Christopher Nolan’s films where no matter how many problems they have I still enjoy the films anyway. I really liked this one, as long and full of exposition as it was. Those visual effects were really and truly marvelous.

    Also, Jay wasn’t kidding about Casey Affleck. I’ve literally never seen the resemblance between him and Ben until this movie. It must have been the Argo beard.

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    *Spoilers*

    I kinda wished Gravity ended with a little girl standing on the shore, brown hair all knotted, holding out a red shoe to Sandra Bullock. That would have made it a worthwhile movie to me.

  • Palpatine

    I though this was your catchphrase?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FyBlOe2cT1Y

  • ChuWii

    i thought nolans middle name was pretentious

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    Would another sci-fi/drama film done right be Contact? Moon is a wonderful film, but it’s limited in scope and may not be a fair comparison.

  • Toffoli_73

    His films have kind of the opposite effect on me. No matter how well constructed they are, there’s always something flat and unsatisfying about them.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    Horsecrap.Memento is still his best film to this day and Johathan hasn’t writen the script for that one.

  • Mark Bisone

    I’d like to peel away her layers and explore!

    (By which I mean I’d like to remove her ectodermal tissue and then carefully extract her bones for posterity.)

  • Anthony D.

    Hey at least you’re reasonable in your criticism, unlike people who blindly hate on the guy for no reason other than he’s popular. His films are ambitious and well-shot, if nothing else, and that’s a respectable thing.

  • What kind of beer is Jay drinking? I could care less about Mike’s Stella.

  • Howard Hand

    Great episode, as always.
    I disagree with Mike about the score to ” The Black Hole”. It’s a great old-fashioned score and is arguably better than Zimmer’s score for Interstellar, even if they are on different ends of the spectrum.

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    Oh my wigs and garters!

  • omitted

    Not much creativity went into story or character development in Gravity. It was a great demo for the techniques used, I’ll give you that. I saw it twice on the big screen and now I’m hesitant to watch it again on a smaller screen so that my good impression of the immersion Gravity offered won’t be ruined.

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    The skits are the easiest to masturbate to.

  • mmp

    I’ve never watched it. Thanks for giving me something to do.

    About Moon, this film can also be praised for its runtime. It knows when to get in and get out… Like a lady.

  • ChuWii

    now ya talkin

  • Toffoli_73

    Interstellar had me rolling my eyes quite a bit, even for a Nolan film. Some of the story elements were right out of the M Night Shyamalan playbook.

  • Dexter didn’t always blow…

  • omitted

    Tru dat!

  • I don’t recall. I was mostly drunk on set.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    I liked the movie. And it wasn’t because my brother in law was in it. On a technical level it is probably the best film I have seen all year. Great acting, and some parts of the film work really damn well at pulling your heart strings. The idea is good and executed well, not as good as Inception but well. The big problem is The Return of The King affect and the dialogue. The dialogue isn’t bad but there is too much fucking science mumbo jumbo in it. It was really easy to get confused. They don’t give you the time to sit down and take it in. And the pacing needed some improving. There are so many fucking things happening the third act it feels like Return of The King when this has to happen and this and that to explain how that happend. AAAARGGH! It’s good, but holy hell it’s got problems.

  • Mohamad Taufiq Morshidi

    Memento’s okay, but it was actually based on Jonathan Nolan’s short story.

    I think Nolan’s best work is The Prestige and that was Jonathan and Chris together and Jonathan Nolan’s the reason why i love Person of Interest aka the best network TV show of the 2010s.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Okay, see you. Hope you like Casey in it.

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    I hope you like it. It’s a very emotional film that’s heavy on humanity with a sprinkle of science. Kinda what Mike wanted out of this film.

  • Lional punsalot

    Here is the problem, Nolan isnt perfect, he isnt a finished product, he can make things very close to being good movies, he has the creativity and talent to get so far. But the final little stretch, the details gets missed. He has blind spots in his direction which dont matter to most of his target audience, but to us the stand out like glaring insults.

    He isnt a michael bay for example, who literally has no talent or potential to gain talent, or want to try and become talented, he just isnt the final product you and people like you need him to be.

    But he has been involved in making some good movies.

  • ChuWii

    that was after earth wasnt it

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    This is *spoiler* territory, but did the movie really need the ghost concept? Does Nolan try to give humanity more credit by saying we advanced our own evolution (Unlike 2001), even though he creates a paradox in the process? And how could Nolan solve those conflicting issues?

  • Mohamad Taufiq Morshidi

    For me, Nolan is a guy who’s perfect when working with the right people.

    When Nolan lets Goyer take some liberties making the story for TDKR, everything falls a part. Character motivations go out of nowhere. I really don’t give a fuck about JGL, and there’s too much focus on Bane which is difficult because i don’t care about Bane’s motivations.

    TDKR was very grounded, because it basically reminds me of why i loved X-Men 2, which is also another case of why Bryan Singer works better with the right people.

  • mmp

    So I guess it has that early Star Wars feel. It awakens the child’s imagination of an adult and the theme of science mixed with magic comes natural and unforced.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    I liked the idea but it wasn’t as focused as other stuff in the film. Balance is the problem. There’s not enough balance for stuff we get and stuff we do not understand. Inception for me did that perfectly.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    I love how the pills Mike took are obviously Tic-Tacs

  • ChuWii

    some times it sucked

  • dollar store cashier wife

    I think it holds up being rewatched on a small screen.As far as character development goes Bullock’s character journey is represented in primarily visual metaphors which suited the film perfectly I thought.Clooney is well…being himself like always and sadly I can’t defend his acting or his character.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Yeah your right. Then the writers strike happened.

  • Xor

    Welp looks like there was no payoff for the hot-air balloon.

  • Toffoli_73

    SPOILERS: The whole first act was so rushed and unconvincing and quite frankly silly and illogical. Using morse code from dust clouds and a bookshelf to stumble upon “secret NASA”? Did M Night Shyamalan direct this? NASA sure was lucky this 40 something year old pilot just happens to stumble upon their secret base or they wouldn’t have had anyone to fly the giant rocket they built. I couldn’t believe how lazy the story telling was.

  • Agree with the pacing. Nolan can really pack a movie to it’s fullest and go overboard. It got to be to much this time aswell. I like movies that maintain a strong core without needing to add emotion, effects or stimuli all the time. It’s gets distracting or it drains you of your investment to the film. I still like Nolan in many ways. Batman Begins is actually one of my favorite movies of all time.

  • I’m watching this shit spoilers or no…

  • omitted

    I would have been okay with Cooper dying inside the black hole after contacting Murph and dr Brand’s fate being left open. Maybe “they” should have been powerful enough to communicate through the event horizon, but not have been able to pull Coop out.

  • Lional punsalot

    spoilers***
    they talk about a movie

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    But he was already out of the black hole. The “library” was a 3D tesseract created by people in the future who are operating in the 5th dimension.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    I like Nolan a lot too. I think with this film he was aiming too high. I like him doing more bigger films but when he is scaled back he can give us a classic like Memento which is in my top 10 favorite films ever.

  • Adzl33t

    STILL NO REVIEW OF AN ANIMATED MOVIE, why didnt you guys review Big Hero 6, do something different

  • mmp

    Spoilers (continued): That was the moment that I began to question the necessity of the family subplot. Because of that beginning they had to rush it up and the motivation for Cooper to become the pilot turned out akward.

  • Adzl33t

    I knew Intersteller was gonna be a let down, unlike Big Hero 6 which was awesome, but of course don’t review animated movie, so I wouldnt really know what you think about them

  • dollar store cashier wife

    they said the rocket would be launched anyways regardless if cooper found the base.only with a lesser pilot ofc

  • Wizard Phoenix

    SPOLERS! Best part of the film for me was when Coop is watching the videos that my bud Casey had sent him. It was emotional and showed the effects of the passage of time in space like few films have done before hand. I was teary during that scene, no joke. While that was brilliant it felt Nolan and his brother wanted to have more of that and it didn’t work for me.

  • Adzl33t

    My problems with Intersteller, it wanted be an Uber Hard Sci Fi, yet the ending is like a terrible Doctor Who episode

  • Studio Executive

    As long as you paid for a ticket, I don’t care if you liked it or loved it.

  • omitted

    I thought the tesseract had to be inside the black hole for TARS to get his magical quantum readings and all the “only through gravity can one communicate from a black hole” talk, but I guess it’s up for a debate whether such a construct would even have a ‘place’ in our universe.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    Funny enough The Prestige is based off a book to which the film is rather faithful.

    Verdict? Hack fraudery runs in the family.

  • disqus_VM3f31tYRB

    5 minutes before the review started -_-

  • ChuWii

    oh… its one of those movies…

  • dollar store cashier wife
  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    Steven Moffat writing himself into a corner and rarely finding a witty solution? That doesn’t sound like him at all.

  • Big film…. Cubrick. Yes.
    Big film…. Nolan. Almost, always almost.

    Not the greatest but as you mentioned, Memento. A movie worth putting on display anywhere. I don’t think he will ever get better at what he does(I hope I’m wrong). But I would let him grow old and scale down anyday. I think he would make better movies this way, maybe. Memento is a sign of that.

  • Adzl33t

    He ruined Doctor Who

  • JohnBigbooty

    Yes, The Black Hole is pretty bad, but has some good elements. It was quite dark for a Disney movie, the ship design was amazing, and has an absolutely wicked ending. One of the best scenes ever in a sci-fi movie.

    I’ve only seen the trailer for Interstellar, but it reminds me of the worst Michael Cain, over-explaining, melodramatic dialogue from The Dark Knight Rises, and that’s a big turnoff. In some ways, it seems the opposite end of the drama spectrum from 2001. But I’ll definitely watch it. The story looks interesting.

  • I’m dead now… sad face.

    best lunch break ever!

  • omitted

    I miss Russell T Davies. During his run every other character had to be gay.

  • Studio Executive

    Sometimes our reach exceeds our grasp. Sometimes we can just barely achieve a rudementary version of what we set out to do: this is true for space flight and for film. Perhaps this is an unintentional parallel in Mr. Nolan’s latest effort, but that parallel still resonates with me… I really wanted Battleship to make a ton of money, instead of just a lot of money.

  • Adzl33t

    Asking Nolan now to make a movie less than 2 hours is like asking Nolan to direct a scene with two female characters talking to each other, not very likely

  • Wizard Phoenix

    I said few films, you dumb fat skinny fuck

  • Shakmaaa: after birth part 2, the electric boogaloo

  • Wizard Phoenix

    I would like to seem scale down but not thematically. Thematically he like many directors should do that aim high.

  • I’m dead now… sad face.

    Russel t Davies ruined being gay.

  • Mathieu Benoit

    Are you hack frauds ever going to review John Wick?

  • ChuWii

    i’d buy that for a dollar

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    I guess when operating in the 5th dimension, anything is possible! Talk about convenience!

    worst movie EVER!

  • Toffoli_73

    I guess you’re right about the mission going ahead anyways but I still couldn’t believe how fast he went from discovering the base to flying the rocket. No training, no meeting the crew, no nothing. It was just oh hey look a random pilot. Let’s get you on your way then! And why wouldn’t NASA want to find the best pilots they could? Shouldn’t they have come knocking at his door?

  • I’m dead now… sad face.

    Insert anal probe joke here.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Implying that Independence Day was good.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    Rich and Jack are the ones what watch animation (and play video games). If I remember correctly, in one of the streams Jay admitted to never had watched Up, much to Rich’s dismay.

  • I’m dead now… sad face.

    its better than Boyhood

  • National Lampoons Interstellar Vacation 2: Cousin Eddies Space Adventure.

  • Thanatos2k

    You damn hack frauds, I didn’t get a commercial for Pizza Rolls! I got some stupid Canon ad!

  • Wizard Phoenix

    You’re dead wrong, Andrew. Boyhood is the greatest fucking thing to happen to cinema since Crash won best picture. It’s an experience like no other because it was filmed over the course of 12 years. That is way it is better than anything to ever happen.

  • Mark Bisone

    I don’t like things that are different.

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    John Lithgow would have given a better emotional ending to Independence Day than Randy Quaid.

    Just sayin’.

  • Thanatos2k

    So…ruined by the human elements? Because that crap is all over the previews, and basically why I’m not really interested in seeing the movie.

  • Palpatine

    “Where Did I Come From” was an animated movie, and even though they talked about it on BotW. So I guess you could count that as a review on an animated movie.

  • Andrew Hudson

    These guys might enjoy Europa Report, it’s a rather slow-paced indie space adventure movie.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    That is a movie that I know for fucking sure that everyone is going to hype and say it is the best thing ever. Just like Frozen and it sucks.

  • Adzl33t

    Nope, I would prefer feature length wide release

  • omitted

    With hundreds of embryos?

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    For me, personally, I felt that I was being emotionally strung along and left with no major payoff to compensate. I understand that films are emotionally manipulative, and some pull at your heart strings without belittling you, but this film really whacks you over the head with symbolism as though you’re incapable of understanding the overall themes behind it.

    A Dylan Thomas poem is not rocket science. Neither is love or Dust Bowl history.

    brb am watching it now.

  • It’s for a movie. But he was very convincing. I thought he had lost it. It was really awkward watching this back in 200x (whatever year).

  • Robby
  • Wizard Phoenix

    I saw this movie out of curiosity. I was all alone in the theater. Boy, it was terrible. Probably the worst film in about four years.

  • For anyone on the fence, I’ll say up front that I would definitely recommend Interstellar. It’s a great film with many interesting ideas. It’s certainly flawed, but if we’re talking about mainstream hollywood directors, Nolan’s worst still shines over everyone else. This feels like a breath of fresh air after what seems like decades of super hero movies.

    Now onto spoilers:

    I saw Interstellar in IMAX 70mm and, having never seen an IMAX film before, I wasn’t sure what to expect. The film looked amazing, and the image was so big and so engulfing when they cut to the IMAX sequences. I know “immersion” is such a buzzword, but in simple terms of visceral connectivity to the world of the film, I think IMAX is the most immersive format out there, way more so than stupid 3D or asinine 48fps. During the first dust storm scene, I felt like I was standing right next to the truck experiencing it with the characters. I agree with some of the issues in this review. I think certain elements could have been altered or removed altogether. Matt Damon’s character should not have turned into an evil villain, the aspect of the future humanity helping itself should somehow have been discarded (isn’t the driving force of the story humanity’s resiliency and drive to explore the unknown? Why can’t they have done it themselves? that aspect defeats its own purpose), and more of the film should have been about the exploration of space and humanity’s endeavors, not a small contained story about a guy and his daughter. There are a lot of other small details that don’t quite work for me, but even with all these flaws, the film is still fantastic.

    I liked this movie. I had some issues with it though. Matthew Mconahue is a great actor but I can’t picture him as a guy who understands quantum physics. I would’ve liked someone a little more believeable in that regards. There’s alot of crying in this movie. I love human connection but there is A LOT of crying. A lot of exposition as always in a Nolan movie. Wonderful visuals. Very engaging. I didn’t have a problem with any of the far fetched relativity quantum mechanics and the 5th demention library. My biggest problem with the movie was with the corn. I believe its established that corn is now the only thing on earth. And Everyone is eating it for the rest of there lives. They would all have Pellagra. And would’ve died long before they found a new place to live.

  • Well let me tell you a secret, Jar Jar is the real evil in Star Wars.

  • Noah R.

    *nerdy voice* Well, technically it was partially his doing. In fact, if it wasn’t for legislation he had helped to pass during the Clone Wars, Sidious may not have risen to higher power and the war, and ultimately Sidious’ plans would have been foiled. Minor inconvenience.

    Love or hate this film, you still have to commend Nolan for bringing Kip Thorne onto the crew and having the most realistic and scientifically accurate black hole put onto the screen to date.

    Actually, it may be the most accurate black hole ever rendered or imagined. They discovered some new things by doing this and they will have some technical papers coming out with their findings, both for astrophysicists and the computer graphics community.

  • Dean McCopout

    Just got back from seeing Birdman or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Closeups, and I must say with regards to Interstella (which I have not seen yet): I always though science fiction was what Nolan was made for and I’m glad to see he is realizing it in such a grand fashion. It’s just a shame that the nature of big budget releases forces him to write some sort of contrived romantic/emotional core to his stories that he never is able to do correctly, it just isn’t his forte it seems. Just look at The Prestige or his Batman films, just no romantic chemistry whatsoever really.

    Still I will probably see 2014: a Corn Odyssey anyway to see what all the hullabaloo is about.

    Yep they are all a speculation, they are purely a theory. When I was taking astronomy classes I was surprised by how there is absolutely no sound evidence that black hole, worm hole eg. exist at all they are 100% theoretical with a few mathematical equation and mysterious prob disappearances pointing to there existence. But much like the theory of evolution a little tiny bit of speculation goes a long way in peoples imaginations.

  • Give it a moment…

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    “all a speculation”
    “purely a theory”
    “absolutely now [sic] sound evidence”
    “100% theoretical”

    Sure, buddy, sure.

    There’s plenty of indirect evidence for the existence of black holes, or at least what we currently call and refer to as black holes. We can’t have direct evidence because of the very nature of these cosmic giants.

    Our understanding of them may change over time, though, as with nearly everything we currently understand.
    Does that mean they’re completely theoretical? Nope.
    Does that mean there’s no evidence? Nope.
    Hell, even Stephen Hawking has changed his position on what exactly they are, but that doesn’t mean they don’t exist.

    Also, your false equivalency of the amount of evidence for evolution and black holes is laughable, not to mention completely ignorant. Trying to cast doubt upon evolution by comparing them to black holes, which are much more difficult to measure and observe, is rather disingenuous of you. You implying that the theory of evolution has ‘a little tiny bit of evidence’ speaks more of your knowledge [or lack thereof] than any of the scientists studying said theory.

    A scientific ‘theory’ is much different than layman’s idea of ‘theory’. A scientific theory is basically an established set of ‘facts’ and their relation to one another, supported by a lot of evidence, data, studies, experiments, etc. It is a very difficult objective to obtain and is something that’s constantly challenged whenever new evidence, data, studies, etc. emerge. Whenever something comes up that can’t be explained with that theory, the theory is either updated or thrown out.

    A layman might think a ‘theory’ is simply speculation, conjecture, a hunch, etc. In science a theory is never used in this context.

    In fact, you make it sound as if black holes and the theory of evolution are rather easy to disprove. I’ll be awaiting your take downs of both. You may want to brush up on your typing abilities first before you start trying to publish any papers, mind you.

    tl;dr You’re wrong and you should feel wrong.

    That pencil through the paper thing is just what physicists do to explain wormholes period, you could easily say he stole that from any given episode of insert scientific theory series HERE.

    But yeah, I’m pretty much 100% with Mike and Jay on this movie, except the visual beauty of it wins me over more than it does for them I think. I couldn’t enjoy the beauty of Gravity because of how annoying Sandra Bullock was, I couldn’t enjoy the beauty of Avatar because that aesthetic didn’t speak to me, plus the movie was just bad, but Interstellar, story-wise was decent enough (minus the ironically heart crushing love conquers all ending) that I could lose myself in the effects and pacing. Also, yeah, I disagree with Mike on the Hathaway speech kind of winning me over, I love that scene because Matthew McConaughey shuts that silliness down fast.

  • Robby

    Do you guys alternate between Blip and YouTube just to show your contempt for us?

  • Joe

    Great review guys. Honestly, I got out of Interstellar and I had a lot of thoughts on it, but had a hard time concisely saying how I felt about it. I mean it was obviously good, but it was quite a “meal” of a movie, you guys really well articulated just about every thought I had about the film.

    A few things that you kinda said that I want to add: *some spoilers*
    1. TARS is going to be a popular Halloween costume next year, and he’s also the first proof that Nolan can do alright with levity/humor. (I remember Batman Begins in particular had a few slight nomedy humor moments)
    2. The visuals of space warping were amazing and the coolest part is this: From what I’ve read Nolan said that he wanted to create realistic simulations of what space warping would look like (a respected relativity physicist guy was a co-producer/consultant on this film) but Nolan reserved the right to change it artistically if it looked stupid or boring, however it looked really cool and the accurate space warping graphical simulations are pretty much exactly what you see in the film.
    3. The score of the film was awesome, you guys touched on it, but Hans Zimmer is really bringing it these days, and considering how John Williams has softened with old age Zimmer might be the best film composer out there now.
    4. There were a few plot and other criticisms that I, like you guys, had with the film. But I almost feel bad expressing the small criticisms, because it was such a well made ambitious film that I worry that if I talk about the criticisms it will seem like it’s a crap movie. My criticisms of this film are so small compared to actual bad movies, the only reason I have critical thoughts about the film is because it was so engaging and ambitious. Nolan is not a god or a perfect filmmaker, but he makes original, engaging, and ambitious films that often provoke thought and discussion. And that’s probably the best thing I can say about this film. It’s not a perfect film, but it’s more engaging and noteworthy than more universally approved films.

    Anyway great fair review Mike/Jay, and Mike is right, although Lithgow was fun on Dexter, Dexter is a shit show. But keep up the great work you hackfrauds. I really appreciate and respect the quality content RedLetterMedia keeps putting out.

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    27:22 is another clue that Mike has early onset ‘fork in the brain’, which is a subset of Alzheimer’s.

    Jay: “He was really good on Dexter. I didn’t mention that when we talked about the first Planet of the Apes movie.”
    Mike: “On Dexter he blows! Listen, I seen a movie where Johnathan Lithgow played a father with Alzheimer’s, I think. I don’t know what movie it was.”
    Jay: “That’s Planet of the Apes he had Alzheimer’s …”
    *Awkward pause.*
    Mike: “Oh yeah! That’s it! And uh, uh … and, and it was comical. I think we discussed this-”
    Jay: “We did. We did.”
    Mike: “-on our show Best of the Worst.”
    Jay: “Yes- No! Half in the Bag. What’s Best of the Worst?”
    Mike: “I dunno …”

    What’s the song?

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    I elaborate on point #2 further down in the comments and link to a video you may or may not have seen. 🙂

    I agree on most fronts, although I may be a bit critical of this: “Hans Zimmer is really bringing it these days”

    He scored the OST for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and brought Pharrell Williams on board. I would argue he really missed the mark on that one.

    Anyway, I have a hard time faulting the film or criticizing it too heavily because it was a film that made me think and ponder while also entertaining me. I envision my friends and I discussing the movie quite a bit in the month to follow which doesn’t happen too often. Like you mentioned, I felt Nolan’s ambition should be noted and that the weird, bizarre, 5-dimensional bookshelf ending [along with him just falling into the black hole] was ballsy enough and made me go “what the fuck?!” enough [in a good way] that I feel its missteps aren’t as blatant nor should be weighed as heavily.

    I mean, it was really damn interesting how he visualized that space for the audience when Cooper could see a bunch of 3-dimensional cross-sections of his daughter’s room. The idea of that is interesting enough for me to suspend my disbelief. Even though he was surrounded by this seemingly endless amount of space, it felt almost claustrophobic and scary; that portion of the film was hauntingly beautiful to me and how it fell apart at the end I really need to see again.

    Not only that, but with me being someone who loves to watch movie trailers, I’m glad Nolan only teased bits and pieces of the film and left much of it to the imagination. It was one of the few times I’ve gone to the theatres and didn’t know how a film might play out.

  • Joe

    Nolan has been my favorite director since “Insomnia” so I try to go into his films entirely blind. I knew nothing about the film going in, and I think I enjoyed it a bit extra because of that, but I thought the trailer (which I watched after seeing the film) was reasonably restrained too.

    I should clarify about Zimmer, I do not believe he is beyond reproach, I had no idea he had anything to do with Amazing Spiderman 2, that’s a disappointment for me. I guess my point was in his capacity as partner for Nolan films he is making fairly iconic scores. Like 4 years later everybody would know the Inception soundtrack, and same goes for Molossus which he made all the way back for Batman Begins.

    He’s not a perfect composer, but I just think he has made really iconic soundtracks, especially (if not exclusively) in his partnership with Nolan. John Williams, who I have amazing respect for, hasn’t made an iconic theme since “Hedwig’s Theme” in the early 2000s. Batman, Inception, and now Interstellar have fairly iconic soundtrack moments that I think will stand the test of time, and that’s what I meant when I said Zimmer was bringing it these days.

    I didn’t know about his Spiderman 2 involvement though, that’s a shame, but at the same time maybe Amazing Spiderman 2 wasn’t a film worthy of a good soundtrack.

    Anyway, thanks for the thoughtful response! 🙂

  • They absolutely need to do a Best of the Worst with Nicolas Cage movies.

  • He peaked at Memento but he’s got some good flicks.

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    I only meant those 3 lines about Zimmer as a small aside from otherwise completely agreeing with what you said. I was expecting something akin to his other recent works when I went into TASM2, but it missed the mark.

    I won’t hold that against him too much, though, because that film was god-awful in my eyes and so his work on that wasn’t so bad in comparison. I even have a few soft spots for those tracks now and again.

  • Joe

    Oh sure. And it is interesting when crap movies have decent soundtracks (“London Calling” from “Star Trek into Darkness” comes to mind), and I can understand that anybody going into TASM2 for any reason was going to leave disappointed, but it’s a shame that Zimmer did a poor job too. So yeah I get and agree with your point. Also I watched your video from below, thanks for that link, really interesting stuff.

    Interstellar is complex and hard to understand. If you watched it and cannot totally know about it, you can search the timeline which will help you. But if you didn’t watch it yet, you can take your time to watch blu-ray of it. Aurora Blu-ray player is a good choice for you.

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    It’s not unusual for the temperatures to go between -35 °C or lower in the winter [especially with windchill] to +35 °C or higher in the summer [especially with the humidity]. That’s a variation of over 70 degrees.

    I personally don’t mind the cold all that much.

  • Jigsaw

    They used the rocket to initially bring the ship into orbit in order to save its own fuel for the actual mission. There are no gas stations in deep space.

    While I liked the family drama aspect, I agree about wanting to see more about the exploration. I also want a real movie just about the exploration of distant worlds with realism and without aggressive aliens and a ton of explosions. I like the nerdy science stuff in the second half. It’s about time that a movie of that size had the balls to not cater to the lowest common denominator.

    I don’t like how Cooper slipped into the mission. If he’s such a hot shot pilot they would have tracked him down and approached him to lead the mission without just happening on it how he did.

    Overexposition is a known problem with Nolan (remember the clean slate stuff in the The Dark Knight Rises?)

    Hey, don’t shit on The Black Hole! I love it! And the score is great! Event Horizon doesn’t suck either. It’s the only good movie by Paul W.S. Anderson!

    EDIT: I loved Interstellar, by the way. A couple of flaws but overall a great movie that shows what 2001 could have been with a bit more dialogue, story and characters.

    sunshine (2007) was the fucking best. Zero schmultz. There’s even scenes where they point out how trite they are. No romantic bullshit. AWESOME movie. Also, what happened to Nolan? You look at the remake of Insomnia and you see a man who can immerse you in a character and a story with nuance and subtlety. Just basic stuff, not this larger-than-life scale visually driven stuff. I’ll be honest, I don’t believe the Dark Knight was in any way shape or form realistic (The Joker must have had like conference calls and training and day planners for all the shit he did, and he’s supposed to be the antithesis of order and Batman) which is why people love it so much, the realism…Now I feel like a shitass. But that’s my 2 shillings!

  • dollar store cashier wife

    sunshine did had that retarded 3rd act…which really reminded me of damon’s subplot in interstellar.

  • Bahareh Khosravi

    But dat soundtrack doe!

  • dollar store cashier wife

    One of the things that made 2001 so great was precisely the lack of dialogue.I would have liked if Nolan made those space scenes linger longer then 30 seconds as opposed to cutting back to characters explaining shit to each other.

  • ChuWii

    they just recorded two skeletons making love in a tin coffin.. wasnt that hard really

    I really enjoyed the Hell out of the first 2/3rds of Sunshine. Then I think the peyote must have kicked in, because it seemed like the film went completely off the rails.

  • Jigsaw

    Fair point. But still… 2001 was just too cold and distant. Intentionally so, no doubt, but I would like it a lot more with a more emotional connection to what’s happening on screen. With Dave behaving like an emotionless robot himself it’s hard to care for anything in that movie. An audio-visual masterpiece to be sure, but a good movie? Not so much. I know, an unpopular opinion, but I stand by it.

  • Yeah Insomnia was better than it gets cread for but its a little start and stoppy…maybe what he was going for but I can understand why it didn’t click with people…also (with respect for dead people) RW sucks. I like Nolan’s movies for what they are (or as you pointed out, what he’s become) but it would be quite nice to see him get back to a smaller story, Memento is an amazing movie, lets have more of that.
    I liked sunshine but of directors I’d choose to take a look at a schmaltzless look at a great big story about the nothingness that is humanity…danny boyle is pretty far down that list…dude injects humanity (even in all its awfulness) into nearly every frame of his flicks…hes about as far away from a nihilist as they come. and the film is filled with swelling music and ends with a big dramatic human sacrifice to save the rest of humanity. So I have NO idea what youre talking about that the film is devoid of humanity…though I think it would have benefited greatly from a perspective like that…a great big bring down would have put a smile on my face…but Im just a sick fuck like that…

  • Michael Collins

    Upvoted cause of you DKR sentiments.

    Not devoid of humanity, devoid of schmaltz and romantic subplots. Sick fucks FTW!

  • Okay I suppose he deserves some credit for not ending the flick with a bollywoodstyle dance number over the credits…but I can’t help but think the movie would have been better if it had just done pans over the empty and frozen tundra that was once our blue home…maybe with some mazy star playing…oh oh or even better just whistling wind…

    My problem with Nolan is that he doesn’t know what he wants his movies to be. He’ll present this cold, clinical aesthetic and then shoehorn in some jarring saccharine moment that undermines the tone of the whole movie. His latest works are hodgepodges of Kubrick’s measured direction and Spielberg’s sentimentality, and he doesn’t fully succeed at either approach. He just doesn’t know how to convey the human condition.

    I think a lot of the backlash against his movies is partially a reaction to his fans who seem to have an unwavering devotion to the guy. His “blockbuster” movies have invited all sorts of pseudointellectual bull**** and if you criticize his movies for their ham-fisted exposition and robotic, emotional husks who masquerade as human beings, people will just say “You just don’t get it, man.” It’s a shame there’s so much controversy surrounding Nolan because it’s clear he crafts his movies with a lot of love and care. People just want him to make the best movies he possibly can.

    I favor his small-scale movies because greater attention was given to character development and tone. His biggest flaw (in my opinion) is that he focuses so much on spectacle in these big blockbuster movies that he outright ignores any real attempt to create emotional resonance or he fails to temper those elements, ending up with off-putting melodrama.

    Inception was a decent film. The main problem with it was the army of fartsniffers and dorm room philosophers that it spawned, trying to make it out to be some mindbending puzzle inside a labyrinth inside a wormhole. It’s actually just a straightforward heist flick with a gimmicky premise — basically a cross between Ocean’s Eleven and Dreamscape, except now Mr. Plinkett’s Frank Sinatra’s wife is dead and haunting his mind instead of alive and boning a rich guy. You got a couple of effective action sequences, a hairy Shinzon, a cinematographer named Pfister and asian people bleeding to death in the snow. What more could movie audiences ask for?

    It needs to be shorter, I guess.

    I actually loved The Prestige and wish he would make more movies like that. The reason is that The Prestige felt like it had some teeth in it, there was a very dark undertone and it didn’t overplay the sappy drama like Inception. And I would say that it was one of the few movies that had a tangible message, that is of self hatred and guilt. Pretty much the one movie he’s made that wasn’t so ham-fisted with some grand message about the meaning of life, but instead just about one mans emotional disorders.

    There is a really good article I found in the New Yorker about how “Relatability” is killing movies: http://www.newyorker.com/culture/cultural-comment/scourge-relatability
    I also love how the author uses Boyhood as an example. I heard so many times from people about how they can “relate” to the characters and the little twerps childhood with their own. (Oh God, I’m so sorry that your childhood sucked.) Sometimes its good to NOT relate to a character. For example look at Walter White in Breaking Bad. In no way, shape or form can I relate to him. He is a drug making psychopath but his character is compelling. I can’t help but want to learn more about him and see what actions he will make next. Sometimes a character people can’t relate to is the best character in a story.

    Breaking Bad is probably my favorite series of all time and it saddens me that its fanbase doesn’t seem to understand the material’s full substance.

  • RPK

    ‘Interstellar’ was disappointing, which stinks because I really wanted to like it. It’s not often that Hollywood goes full out, hard Sci-Fi and I was ready to look past minor flaws but in the end I couldn’t overlook this movies troubles.

    First, it was a lazy job of sound editing. Key dialogue moments were drowned out by the overzealous score.

    The plot brought on large ideas but then did a very poor job of wrapping the ideas together. The book case scenes and the ‘love connects all’ theme were disasters. Was anyone surprised that the ghost would end up being MM?

    Some of the character death scenes were executed poorly. Main characters were killed off and I basically just guessed they were gone simply by the fact they were no longer on screen.

    I’m still trying to forget all the Matt Damon scenes – my goodness were they awful and predictable.

    There were some good moments. As usual, Nolan does a great job of scene scope. Everything seems massive and larger than life. The docking scenes in particular were quite memorable.The acting on the whole was pretty good (when we could hear them clearly)

    Bottom line Interstellar was a 2 1/2 star movie, but given what it could have accomplished I’d give it only 2 stars (on a 4 star scale).

  • DanceOfBirther

    No, that’s Galaxy of Terror, even though it is only one section of one planet that’s full of terror, much less a whole galaxy. That’s a decent film.

    Dark Planet has Michael York sticking his plug into a woman’s serial port and giving her pleasure and pain. This actually makes (some) sense in context.

    To be honest, time travel always raise this kind of discussions. My theory is: in this movie, they establish that there is no way to change the past (which is pretty scientific accurate, we can travel to the future, never to the past). So, when they bend time and make him possible to communicate with his daughter, he could not change the past. When he realized he could talk to her, he did the first thing he could think (which was to say STAY). After he did, he could not make the time come back to change it. He never realized that everything he was doing led to that point where he was. If he didn’t send any message at all, he would not find the NASA location, therefore, he would not have traveled, making he stayed with his daughter and mankind perish on Earth. So, the message is: when comes to time travel, there is no freewill and you will do whatever you are supposed to do.

    Middle America loves a space cowboy. Mean time, I am supposed to be content with the fact that I get the small hint. I am smarter than everyone else, yippi.

    But you do realize the paradox that there therefore exists a timeline before he ever went where he doesn’t go because he never went, thus never ending up in a black hole where he could ghost skype his daughter in the future past to ensure he would discover nasa and get himself caught in a black hole where he could ghost skype his daughter in the future past to ensure he would discover nasa and get himself caught in a black hole where he could ghost skype his daughter…

    This would give Einstein fits because all causality (which science relies on) is thrown into the wind. The bullet can’t fly from the gun before it is loaded and the hammer goes down nor can the flying bullet in the future be the scientific cause of it’s own state, but in the above scenario that is precisely what is logically mapped out. The future inadvertently causing the past to happen to ensure a future result. But of course that would require the future to occur before the past.

  • LaFresque

    hum… wut?

    yes, of course, a paradox indeed (again, time travel). The way they tried to explain is that was another dimension, where it was possible to create a bridge with the past, because blackhole and also, super advanced aliens (oh, and power of love).

    it doesn’t make much sense, but it was one of the few things they didn’t explain until the core, which it was nice. Like Jay said, it would be a much better movie without some of the explanation and love crap. They have enough dramatic material with the world’s end and trying to find a new planet.

    But, it would led to a lot more discussions like this and negatives feedback.

  • LaFresque

    yeah, you are right, it is changing the past, but a past that already happen in this particular way.

    in other words, that was the only past possible. So, in the universe of this movie, destiny is a natural physics law (also, looove).

    I didn’t mind the Matt Damon appearance that much. What drove me out of the movie a bit it was the need of a twist, which, frankly, Nolan it is not good at. Why bothered? It doesn’t need that to make a great movie.

    (Spoilers)

    Like in The Prestige, it was obvious Christian Bale had a twin waaaay before it was revealed. Also, the copies of Hugh Jackman.

    In this movie, the very first minute Matt Damon started to talk, it was clear “yep, he is lying, he is the bad guy”. The broke machine, the unclear data about the planet, his desperation when he saw them, he being vague about all question (except about why lie to world about salvation).

    Aslo Matthew being the ghost, we just need to know that some aliens were helping, time bending and that he was going on this trip. All revealed before that got out of Earth.

    By the way, I love the movie.

    That’s bad, but the episode with Bauman was very good and very entertaining.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    You coudn’t have picked a worse example.The point of the twist in The Prestige is precisely the fact that it’s predictable.It goes back to the film’s main themes and the driving force of the main characters-obsession with illusions.Not to mention being a bit meta about audience expectations because most became just as obssesed as our main characters in the twist being something amazing:

    “Now you’re looking for the secret… but you won’t find it, because of course you’re not really looking. You don’t really want to know. You want to be fooled.”

    “The secret impresses no one. The trick you use it for is everything.”

  • DanceOfBirther

    Ah, but Duvel is not an Anheuser-Busch InBev or Molson Coors brand and therefore not ubiquitous on the taps in the old U.S. of A.

  • LaFresque

    “The point of the twist in The Prestige is precisely the fact that it’s predictable.”

    I never looked in that way. Interesting. But still, it got me out of the movie a bit. I would prefer no attempt of twisting in both movies. But that it is just me.

    “You coudn’t have picked a worse example.”

    That was a bit harsh… =) And also, you underestimate my powers, I could pick worst =P

  • dollar store cashier wife

    If you wanna criticize Nolan’s twists you could have hit a sweet home run by picking The Dark Knight Rises.Talia Al Ghul’s reveal was laughable as even people who haven’t touched a single comic book in their life saw that one coming.

    You can’t separate a Nolan movie from the Nolanites.

    If you did, he’d be dismissed as a guy who pretends at deep thinking and makes competent, visually / aurally intense movies which have terrible plots instead of Modern Genius Who Can Do Nothing Wrong!

    I’ll go further: If there had never been a Schumacher, there’d’ve never been that much interest in Ponderous Batman, and Nolan would still be making little art movies like MEMENTO and INSOMNIA.

    The movie is an allegory for Christ

    There are 12 lazars missions
    Copper goes where no one can return from black hole/death
    Becomes a messenger for five dimensional beings
    The message he shares saves man
    And he returns miraculously from the black hole/death
    Then goes off to be the Adam to Brands eve?

    “Some of the character death scenes were executed poorly. Main characters

    Unless you thought that the movie was actually called “Adventures of an old farmer and his dead daughter who married a pilot” I’m not sure how else could the deaths have been emphasized.

    Wormhole fixes that.
    Note the book mentioned in the text and the author of it.
    That guy was an executive producer and scientific consultant on the movie.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wormhole#Time_travel

    Also, there is no timeline in which Cooper doesn’t go to space.
    Wormhole was there before he was born.
    “Almost 50 years ago.”

    Wormhole that’s there because he will go to space. So he could go to space. So future humans could live to build the wormhole in the past.

    So he could go to another galaxy, where he will eventually end up in a pocket universe outside the time and space of his universe.

    Wormhole ain’t just a time machine AND a stargate – it’s also a gateway to parallel universes BECAUSE of the paradox.

    So he fucks with causality of the pocket universe, while influencing things in the parallel universe – his original universe.
    Where he would have ended up in a different universe had he made changes to the timeline of his universe while being in it – here he first moves to a parallel universe and actually makes changes there, which project into his original universe.
    Then the pocket universe collapses and he returns home. Ta-da!

    Again – wormholes.
    Future humans really know their shit with wormholes.

    To which you reply “All right, a fan!” as if that validates your point.

    Then, when called on that non-argument, you attempt further ad hominem attacks while trying to validate your “argument” on absence of color with “My point was that the color was not right”.

    A review that begins with Jay saying, “I really liked this movie,” which then goes on for twenty minutes of his explaining the things he doesn’t like at all about the movie comes off as kind of shammy.

    Yes, this video is a wonderful example of a bonghitting critic gazing thoughtfully up his own asshole. It’s as though the Italian Neorealists gangbanged Baudrillard, and the resultant bastard got raised by an Oberlin semiotics prof.

    It’s all well and good that Inception made nods to Vertov, to the art of cinema and to that byzantine, esoteric art of people looking at things that aren’t real things. But the fartsniffers searching for meaning in a bunch of endlessly (and, often, cynically) recycled symbols are lost at sea. Meaning precedes symbol — at best, the latter’s just a signpost on the road to truth. But if the truth is “Of course it’s a dream… it’s a movie”, then it’s about as deep a truth as “Of course it’s wet… it’s water.”

    The truth of “Inception” is that it’s a middle-of-the-road heist film, baited with enough postmodern chum to convince all those virginal Cinema Studies stupes out there that their mommies and daddies aren’t wasting a small fortune on their worthless degrees.

    The people I went to see ‘Rises’ with couldn’t understand why I hated it so much. I think I may have paraphrased Plinkett in the theater lobby afterwards to the effect that ‘the lack of logic compounded on the movie until it was broken’ and ‘the awfulness was so complex it was mindboggling.’ What annoyed me most was that everyone still seems to think I hated it because it wasn’t ‘true to the comics’ or something, and not because it failed as a film.
    Coming out of ‘Interstellar’, I started by asking ‘Why does your VTOL capable spacecraft that can reach escape velocity even on a planet with greater than Earth gravity need a multistage rocket to get into space?’ got to ‘Why was it necessary to rip off every other science fiction movie ever?’ and ended with a lengthy discussion of how awesome 2001 was for telling a huge and complex idea almost completely through effective dialogue without one word of boring, disjointed pseudoscience babble.
    I think Plinkett and RLM have destroyed my ability to enjoy movies and turned me into a cynical hack fraud.

    “But if the truth is “Of course it’s a dream… it’s a movie”, then
    it’s about as deep a truth as “Of course it’s wet… it’s water.”The truth of “Inception” is that it’s a middle-of-the-road heist film”

    Ummm… Yeah. That IS the point.

    There is no grand meaning, hidden truth-message – it’s a nudge and a wink at the audience to NOT take it all too seriously and just enjoy the ride.
    After being explained that they have just been fed ideas from someone else’s mind, taking them for granted.

    It’s a comment aimed at people taking things like “You either die a hero or live long enough to become a villain.” or “If you’re good at something never do it for free.” or “Some people just want to watch the world burn.” or “It’s not who I am underneath…” – as gospel.
    Or any other idea presented in the movies.
    Like that the solution to crime and corruption is to get dressed up and beat up people.

    It’s a “If you can glean this, you’re overthinking it” joke.

    On a side note… don’t just throw oancitizen on the pile of “bonghitting critics gazing thoughtfully up their own assholes”.

    He’s actually rather insightful and informative while managing to eschew the high-browing and navel or asshole gazing.
    99% of his critique is aimed at exactly that pseudo-intellectual crowd – he almost exclusively reviews “arthouse” movies.
    While amazingly somehow managing to never be 100% negative about a movie he’s reviewing despite how bad they are.

    And that is rejecting legitimate and factual critique of one’s own fault by presenting all critique as mere “opinion”.
    I.e. Hiding behind an ignoratio elenchi fallacy.

    Followed by an attempt to reject critique by ignoring it, steering conversation elsewhere WHILE again fishing for more ad hominem.

    You do realize that you are repeating yourself?
    That “All right, a fan!” and “I’m assuming you enjoyed Interstellar?” is the same attempt at validating your claims by presenting rational and factual critique of them as emotional? Ergo, irrational.
    It’s the same exact sentence – only now with more words.

  • Matt

    The great thing about Nolan is that even though his movies are almost always flawed, the emotional resonance they have is incredible. I really did not like the beginning of Interstellar and I had a lot of problems with the end, but it made me feel so epic and desperate and intense, like I was really experiencing the potential end to humanity and the discovery of all these new planets. And that feeling has stayed with me days after seeing the movie. For that reason, even though this move is flawed, it is probably my favorite of the year, and Nolan is by far one of my favorite directors.

  • ikdks

    In The People vs. George Lucas, Francis Ford Coppala commented that George had held the story for the prequels in his mind for far too many years. What I took that to mean was that he spent 20-30 years fiddling with the ideas, until all the passion and emotion had been drained out of them, and they had become just a dusty list of exposition and plot points.

    That’s how I felt about Inception. I imagine Nolan in his freshman dorm room, smoking a doob, saying “Dude! It’s a dream WITHIN a dream!”. Then twenty years later, when he had the clout, he finally made the movie and whatever wonder or passion he felt was long gone.

    I haven’t seen Interstellar yet, I will, but I wonder if it might suffer from the same problem.

  • Love Alaimo and all the “secondary cast” from DS9, but especially Andrew Robinson.

    I have a dream of writing a play (something like That Championship Season) that would get all those guys together again for a really interesting long-term project.

  • Mark Bisone

    Ummm… Yeah. That IS the point.

    Ummm… he took a ten minute joyride through surrealist theory, Soviet vérité and structuralist claptrap, peppering it with dazzling insights like “The goal of all artists is to plant an idea in audience’s head.” Oh, really? What if it’s about making a person laugh? Or selling them a product? Or giving them a boner? Some of the above? All of the above? Lazy rhetorical statements like these this are the bone-and-marrow of navelgavers, hiding underneath their word salads. If he means to say that all of the above constitute “planting ideas”, then the category is so broad as to becoming meaningless.

    He also makes embarrassingly dumb statements to buttress this pearl of wisdom, such as claiming Leonard DiCaprio “looks like” Nolan, proving he is the “director” of the meta-film. Director, huh? Why not the lead actor of an acting troupe, considering how they were acting out parts for their suggestible mark? Oh, I guess it could be either. Or both. Or neither. For instance, maybe they’re not making a meta-film at all. Maybe they are a team of campaign advisers, hired to convince the electorate to vote a certain way. Or lobbyists trying to push a bill through congress. Or marketing experts trying to sell the New Coke. Again, when the category is as broad as “plant an idea”, it’s best not to waste time trying to staple an association to it. But like a good little postmodern fartsniffer, he does just that, and talks ten miles of bullshit along the way.

    And yet somehow, through all of that, he managed to avoid mentioning the simple truth: Inception is a gimmicky heist film about a thief who’s trying to cope with his wife’s suicide. He’s estranged from his children and in exile from his country, and has to make one last big score to set things right. As simple as that sounds, it’s still ripe with meaning, because those situations and emotional states are all familiar to human beings. We can empathize with Cobb, because most of us have lost someone, have broken rules, have become distant and alienated from the people we love, etc, etc. These connections are the important ones, not the borrowed imagery or the winks and nods to various film cults. Exploring art isn’t about cracking the Nazi Enigma code. And if it ever seems like it is, that means you’re doing it wrong.

  • Mark Bisone

    I’ll give oancitizen this: the closest he came to interesting criticism was the portion where he mentioned Nolan’s propensity towards making films in which protagonists choose the pretty lie over the ugly truth. It’s an obvious “insight”, but if he followed it down the road a piece he might find more himself in more interesting critical territory. It’s not necessary to name-drop Andre Breton or dredge up Keno-Eye to discuss why people construct and/or choose pretty lies, and what Nolan’s art is conveying about this familiar corner of the human condition. That’s like trying to explain why the Star Wars prequels were an artistic disaster by blathering on about the special effects.

    If his goal was to point out to derps how derpy they were being about Cobb’s dream “dilemma”, I’m guessing he probably failed there too. I’ve been in a room with some of those people, and there’s just no talking to them.

  • Matt

    To be honest I don’t see that comparison at all. The Star Wars prequels were pretty obvious cash grabs, whereas I’ve never once heard someone complain that Inception lacked emotional charge or intensity. Most of the complaints about that movie revolve around plot holes or inconsistencies, not Nolan’s passion for the film which I think was pretty obviously present.

    To me, The Dark Knight Rises, Inception, and Interstellar are all very similar. They are imperfect movies with some aspects of the plot that don’t make sense or don’t quite work properly (how does Bruce get back to Gotham?), but they are carried by their intensity and conveying the incredibly high stakes to the audience. All three of those movies really connected to me on an emotional level and I could tell that Nolan really cared about creating an intense movie going experience.

  • DanceOfBirther

    Leader of enemy aliens being genetically programmed to protect his species seeks hostile measures to obtain the “codex” and to reestablish a home world on an already habited planet, which directly threatens his goal of rebuilding said Alien Home World.
    This stupidity is only heightened by the fact that the enemy alien leader and the film’s protagonist have the same goal (the survival of their people), and the presence of a *ready-to-terraform* world next door.

    The key difference between Nolan and Lucas is that it’s nearly objectively true that Lucas’ prequels are completely stripped of any soul, it’s such a common consensus among the vast majority of audiences that it’s become a sort of “truth” – while Nolan’s Inception holds no such position among the vast majority of audiences. Most viewers find Inception to be an incredible movie and experience.

    I think there was a lot of Emperor’s new cloths, with Inception. The standard response to criticism was to accuse people of not getting it. I got it, i just thought it was pointless film student noodling.

    You know what? In honor of our hosts, try the trick they did in the phantom menace review. Try to describe any of those characters as if they were real people?

  • DanceOfBirther

    He touches on my biggest issue, it’s sci-fi, but it’s also a sub-genre mishmash. It’s adventure, action schlock, suspense/horror and philosophical exegesis, but not satisfying as any of them. I do find the combination of in-camera miniature shots and bluescreen motion-control to be interestingly complementary, though.

  • Lional punsalot

    what film wouldn’t be made better through a walking corpse suddenly appearing and chasing after the main characters before killing them off slasher style with lynch-esque editing.

    Schindler’s list, instantly better.
    Water world, instantly better.
    The phantom menace, instantly better.
    Ms doubtfire, so much better it hurts.
    Rocky, I mean is there nothing that a zombie killing all the main cast wouldn’t be a good idea?

  • ikdks

    Honestly, outside of film nerds, I don’t think it made all that much of an impact. I don’t think you’ll find too many people that remember it much less would defend it.

    And again, the ‘it went over your head’ argument doesn’t account for it’s lack of emotional impact. 2001 is an intellectual and spiritual quagmire, but you really feel for Dave as he floats in that little pod, begging HAL to let him in.

    Ps did you ever notice HAL is one letter away from IBM, respectively?

  • Lional punsalot

    Get your fingers out of my ass wallet.

  • Lional punsalot

    Oh i thought it was called puppy love.

  • Now I Get It

    If you were manning a new toll booth into W. Berlin in late 1989, then you finished basic prior to that. And since then, eight Mamet films have had directors who were active before then. So, this really comes down to “Which of those eight would Percy call ‘great’?”

    And while I cogitate, I’ll say that I spent my eighth birthday in a church basement up onstage in front of my Sunday school class, staring at a perfect cake rendered in inedible plaster and plugging my own money into a toy lighthouse that flashed once for each penny.

    So: no cake and, no joke, no money back at the end of class. Plus, they wanted all my Sundays. The penny dropped and I was done with church. But I digress.

    This is just me, but I think Ridley Scott’s “Hannibal” is out, as not a great movie let alone a great Mamet movie. Same with DeVito’s “Hoffa” and McNaughton’s “Lansky”. Louis Malle’s “Vanya on 42nd Street” might be great, but I can’t imagine your base’s theatre showed his earlier, mostly foreign stuff.

    That leaves only James Foley’s “Glengarry Glen Ross” and Barry Levinson’s “Wag the Dog”. Still, a guy who’s repeatedly cited “Escape from New York” as a formative favourite might find greatness in Frankenheimer’s “Ronin”. On the other hand, you might make a dark horse of Stuart Gordon’s “Edmond”, which I found both baffling and frightening.

    So, bugger me for a game of soldiers but, best guess, it’s “Wag the Dog” or “Glengarry”.

  • Lional punsalot

    Don’t you mean all the money.

  • ikdks

    At lease DKR has its heart in the right place. MoS has the soul of an autistic divorce lawyer.

  • mmp

    Oh my gawwwwd.

    Anyway, since you’ve mentioned Kubrick, I believe with the exception of Full Metal Jacket (I never saw Eyes Wide Shut neither his earlier ones), his movies are cold and work fine with the environment that he proposed.

    That’s one of the problems with Nolan’s high concept movies. He tries to put over the top emotional feelings where is not demanded. However, I think he found the perfect balance once (Memento).

  • Pa Kent Says Maybe

    Yeah. You keep the car. You keep the car. Yeah. She gets the house. The house.

  • Yes, so then figure out which bad movie I was compelled to watch on my day pass. (And I concur: Edmond is a very strange, disquieting story.)

  • Pa Kent Says Maybe

    Was Copper the hound or the fox?

  • Pa Kent Says Maybe

    Jeebus. Who would ever have thought skiing in Chicago could seem less faggy than skiing in Colorado?

  • Now I Get It

    Sure, what the heck, I can use $64,000.

    Based on my ESPP (extra-sensory Percy perception) and the fact that Levinson’s early stuff was all for TV, I’ve got to go with Foley’s “Who’s That Girl”, featuring the infinitely ungettable-with Madonna.

  • ikdks

    Here’s my theory.

    Star wars was a hit, so the studio was eager to green light anything spacey. Somebody exhumed a bunch of old guys who used to make 50’s scifi movies and gave them a budget. That’s why you have Borgnine as the Brooklyn grease monkey spaceman. All those old fifties movies had the bowery boys New York comic relief character.

    But then, like Rich was talking about the spirituality aspect added to Battlestar Galactica, they had to put some new agey thing like Star Wars had The Force. But they were all conservative old men, so they had all the good guys turn into angels and go to space heaven, and all the bad guys go to robot hell, like good space Christians believe.

    I still like it though.

  • Ding, ding, ding. Winner, winner, chicken dinner.

  • Sully
  • DanceOfBirther

    Copper Mountain was quite faggy the last few times I was there. I just mean the resort, the runs were great as always.

  • The fact that we’re all still talking about it says something.

    Plus, a cast that included two Oscar winners and the star of Hitchcock’s most notorious movie. That says something too.

  • Earth

    It took 79 episodes of Half in the Bag, 25 episodes of The Best of the Worst, 14 Harry S. Plinkett reviews and 5 feature length films, but I have finally set up a commenting account (where I can actually remember the password for it) on RedLetterMedia. Now I too can comment on all the whacky hijinks of Mike Stoklasa and his pals, as they delve deep into the soul of film and hackfraudery.

    Haven’t seen Interstellar yet, although this review has now made me want to watch The Black Hole and Event Horizon instead.

  • Well done, lurker extraordinaire.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    You racist

  • You may be right. I have the distinct impression that they want to be rid of that set.

    But the better bet is that they attach a bunch of balloons to the house (à la Up) and fly away with Harry S. at the helm. They travel to the technicolor land of Oz and meet a great Wizard and his bald-headed friend and a good witch with a marvelous laugh. But then they click two beer bottles together and wake up back in that black & white dump known as Milwaukee, Wisc.

    The Robots stole the show for me. McChoughtey, whatever, he was annoying to me. He sounded like a cowboy with his diction. The robots were funny, yet still acted like robots. I wish only a few things had been different, that they didn’t have that one scientist go ham like that, and that everyone didn’t get saved in the end. I mean, really, notice to films, take a damn risk. I’d still like the film if the protagonist had died in the end. This film didn’t have the guts to do it and Gravity didn’t have the guts to do it. I guess the only other think of is the inexplicable out burst from the son when he was grown up. Lastly, time travel in a serious toned film ruins everything. And this just made no sense the way it shaped itself.

    Pretty much agreed with the negative parts of the review.
    My rating of “Interstellar” is 5/10.
    SPOILERS
    – In terms of technology “Interstellar” is like two different movies.
    Part 1 is like “Gravity” or “Sunshine”.
    Part 2 pulls in all sorts of fantasy Star Trek tech. (Not only with the super shuttle but with the artificial wormhole and black hole, magic gravity drive and massive space stations around Saturn).
    – The emotional story was over the top for 3 hours.
    McConaughey was sad. His younger daughter was sad. Michael Caine was sad. Hathaway was sad. His daughter who got older was sad. His son who got older was sad who also had a sick son and sad wife. And on it went.
    – A scientist (Hathaway) saying that love is a force in the universe? BS.
    – Beyond that I wasn’t that impressed with the robot design due to a lack of digits for fine motor manipulation.

    What did I like?
    – Matt Damon was the only character who was not an emotional mess.
    He had a problem and a goal and went about it in a serious way. Thank you.
    – The special effects and soundtrack were good.
    – No sound in space was a nice touch.

    There is no such thing as Time – not as a 4th dimension. When science returns to an understanding of that, much of what Einstein and the 20th century did to it will fall away… Time is a measurement tool created by mankind. When Einstein tells you time travel is theoretically possible, instead of going “Wow!”, people should understand the theory has some freaking big problems…. Worm holes are what you explore before you go fishing…

  • MrJenssen

    The snow fort sequence is a clear homage to ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service’, Nolan’s favorite Bond movie. And the concrete fort’s inhospitable, inaccessible, well-guarded and rugged placement on top of a snowy mountain represents the fact that it hides the deepest secrets of the character. It’s the best protected secret in the deepest pits of his consciousness. I think it works quite well, and the action sequence doesn’t last very long at all. I don’t quite see how you can find it pointless and tacked on. Do you also find the extensive discussions regarding seemingly unimportant topics in Tarantino movies “tacked on” and “meaningless”? Is the MacDonald’s discussion in Pulp Fiction tacked on and meaningless?

    As for Inception’s characters; Let’s take Leo. Leo portrays Cobb, who is technically a criminal, but also a father, and a man who clearly has his heart in the right place. He’s also essentially a dope-fiend of sorts (he OD’d on “dreams” heh), plagued by hallucinations from the past that still haunts him. If you’re comparing it to Star Wars, then I suppose he’s sort of Inception’s Han Solo – the dashing smuggler who is deep in debt to a criminal dynasty, and is seemingly willing to leave his friends behind for his own benefit, but finds his heart of gold in the end and risks his own life for the greater good.

    Ellen Page is Inception’s Luke Skywalker. An empty slate, the viewer’s vessel into the universe of the movie. The character that needs things explained to her so that the viewer can understand what’s going on. Exactly like Luke Skywalker. And Luke certainly did not have any more character development during ‘A New Hope’ than what Ariadne did during Inception.

    And I mean, that’s quite a lot more than what you tend to get for ensemble movies that aren’t meant to be character-driven. Look at The Sting, or Ocean’s Eleven. Not a whole lot of character in each character either. They all have their specific jobs during the heist, and that’s all they need to do.

    I honestly think you expect too much out of Nolan’s films. They’re clearly designed to be popcorn movies, but with a little more going for them than the usual braindead Michael Bay crap. The Prestige is a period-piece about magicians, The Dark Knight movies are superhero movies with a bit more nuanced character development than most other superhero movies. Inception is an ensemble heist movie with a twist (and great visual effects), Interstellar is an emotional experience that allows us to go where we as humans alive today can never hope to go, similar to what 2001: A Space Oddyssey did when it was first shown.

    I’m sure there are people who hold Nolan as the messiah of moviemaking, that he’s the brightest man alive. But contrary to what seems to be your belief, MOST people don’t . They see him as a highly talented director of incredibly entertaining popcorn movies. Just because a very small vocal minority shouts at the top of their lungs, doesn’t mean that everyone who enjoys a Nolan film is a blind fanboy.

  • Brack to the Future

    Well sure, but you’re human, and it’s all relative.

    Everything you know and love is already dead, and according to the time continuum what you’re experiencing is a kind of hologram. Like a Christmas Tree, humanity is already chopp’d, it just doesn’t know it yet.

  • Brack to the Future

  • Brack to the Future

    That’s got a good beat but I can’t dance to it.

    Instead, the Plinkett home will founder on the banks of an abandoned spit of land near Grand Haven. The chunky hipsters from Grand Rapids will gravitate to this home like fridges to neodymium magnets, until Mike abandons all hoap and swims to freedom, becoming the best bartender The Tip A Few Tavern ever saw.

    The end.

  • Lional punsalot

    Either way I think we can say that with all that water around its very possible that RLM has jumped a shark.

  • ikdks

    Yeah but why? Why is an homage to her majesties secret service appropriate in the middle of a complex psychological thriller.
    It’s part of a larger problem, that the dream sequences didn’t feel like dreams. In a movie like Dreamscape or Hitchcock’s Spellbound, the dreams were surreal and disjointed. They felt like dreams.

    In this movie they just used the fact that it’s about dreams as a cheap gimmick to ram together a bunch of disjointed locations and environments, and an excuse for action set pieces that had nothing to do with the themes or tone of the movie.

    And you broke the rules. You described their characters by the role they play in the movie, not what they’re like as people. And the royal with cheese scene in Pulp Fiction is character development, something sadly missing in Inception.

    And if your argument is that Fivehead is intentionally bland and characterless because she serves as some sort of proxy for the audience, if that’s true, that’s just stupid. That’s a film student in a sophomore slump gimmick.

  • MrJenssen

    Alright man. It’s pretty obvious that you have found your stance, and are utterly disinterested in even slightly seeing anything differently. Like your view of how a dream sequence SHOULD be like. As if all dreams in real-life are acid-trips, and never have distinct connections with reality. You’ve decided that Nolan’s way of making a dream is poop, and the way some completely different movies from completely different genres deal with it, is correct.

    I really don’t see any point in dragging this further. Here, you win the internet. Nolan is a tool and a hack. He’s a student filmmaker who is completely talentless and his movies are shite. Not even slightly entertaining. Just pure filth. They shouldn’t have been made, the world would’ve been a better place without them.

  • TapewormBike

    The dialogue in Gravity was rough and this seems to be going for even more high-minded ideas. In my opinion, Boyle’s Sunshine was the only movie to capture the actual fascination and reverence that comes with space exploration (you have the Mercury scene in your mind right now, admit it), whilst putting very well realized human beings against it. The dialogue in that is not genius, but it works and it usually revolves around logic, with a bit of cynicism and hope as well. Sure, the third act devolves into an overplayed trope, but then, these types of movies always have the plot more or less tacked on.

  • My ex wife

    Christopher Walken doesn’t act. He just is.

  • I miss good old science fiction. Hope Interstellar opens doors for more of these kinds of movies.

    1. The phenomenon of time dilation (the passage of time as changed by an object’s speed or exposure to gravity relative to another at differing speed or gravity) has been confirmed on both counts through experimentation using subatomic particle accelerators, lasers, and atomic clocks.

    2. Einstein didn’t really deal much in wormholes. His mathematical proofs concerning relativity and special relativity were used as a foundation by other physicists who modeled them mathematically. A wormhole has yet to be observed in nature. Gravity wells that could be the sign of a gravity dense object such as a black hole or a wormhole has been observed via unusual solar lensing and curvature where extreme gravity is the only known theoretical cause. What those objects are is one of the things physicists and astronomers debate about.

    3. Time always has been a variable in physics since the days of Newton. What changed with Einstein is that Newton said time was a fixed constant and Einstein said not if you travel at or close to the speed of light and the other object isn’t. This one observation fixed a lot of problems Newtonian physics encountered when trying to model large gravity dense objects in space and objects traveling at or near the speed of light.

    I enjoyed Sunshine, but it felt to me like like the characters in it made a lot of stupid, stupid choices, considering they’re supposed to be humanity’s best and brightest. Also, the sun’s going to go out, so you’re going to restart it with nukes? It doesn’t work that way, Mr. Boyle.

  • dollar store cashier wife

  • Wizard Phoenix

    I didn’t like Sunshine that much. It is a visual marvel but the themes felt too heavy and cliched to me. Like Nolan Boyle aimed too high, however I think Boyle has more far off. The third act especially when it just becomes a slasher film on par with Jason X. It killed whatever the film had going for it. Luckily Slumdog Millionaire is better.

    The measurements do not, because they depend on arbitrary decisions on units used and a starting point. Which gets us to another area of Einstein-era science I think will eventually fall away: The Dictatorship of the Observer. The universe is not relative – observation and understanding of it is – the mechanics of it will keep on keeping on whether any cognitively gifted creature is there to witness it or now.

    For those of you rising up in indignation at the mere questioning of all-holy science ——– the idea that significant portions of what mankind today deems rock-solid science will not be buried 500 years from now —- is what is laughable, short-sighted, ignorant, and closed-minded.

    Do I have much of a clue which parts of cherished science today will be gone? Nope…. I’m as ignorant as the next guy who takes it on faith Einstein will remain a god 500 years from now.

    But, I’ll make a bet with you —– if worm holes are still even science-fiction 500 years from now, I’ll eat your used under garments….

    I believe the future will say – Time is just a measurement using agreed upon units and dictated by the position of the observer(s).

    Nothing more.

    It is not a 4th dimension – some constant or something with a existential existence. It is a man-made creation. And if that is true, science will have a lot of rethinking to do…..and ideas like time travel, folding space, worm holes, and so on will look funny to future elementary school kids like the flat Earth around which the universe spins is today….

    And if I’m wrong, I won’t care, because I’ll be dead within 40 man-years away….

  • Iggy Autry

    I believe ideas like a Time Continuum will be gone hundreds of years from now – along with a Big Bang from which everything – including 3D space – sprang. I’m guessing the more science has tied itself to the idea of time as having existential existence, the more off-track it has taken itself and its mathematical formulas explaining ultimately limited observation.

    What I do know for sure – part of today’s science will be laughed at in the future. That is always what happens. Science doesn’t build a progressive stairway to the moon. It champions Towers of Babel that largely crumble to dust as the foundation is smashed to pieces by the next watershed-Einstein.

    And I do guess Time and Relativity won’t stand the test of time eventually….

  • I’m dead now… sad face.

    hahahah no. i’m the one who sets fire to his back yard to keep the grass down…. you are grass.

  • Iggy Autry

    The thought occurred to me long ago reading Lucretius but every so often, surfing the Internet has turned up some within science (who can understand the math) saying ballpark similar things. Google Science Time Doesn’t Exist and you’ll see some part of this is debated by scientists —- people who can peer review each other and don’t have to take all this crap on faith (which is what the vast majority of people who will slap me in the head and tell me Time as a 4th dimension has been proven have to do themselves).

    General audiences (aka average morons) won’t understand this movie because it requires a rudimentary understanding of Einstein’s relativity as well as current theories of hyper-dimensional space as well as versed in some sci-fi tropes.

    The thing I don’t understand about the average educated person is — you (the generic you) know science undergoes revolutions — that every so often a breakthrough in technology or a breakthrough thinker comes along — and some ideas fall away and some don’t —-

    — but — even if they do some casual reading about these issues like time and macro cosmology vs quantum micro vision — they will stomp on a person like me who dares suggest some of these ideas —- ideas that logically stretch the imagination far and wide —- are not “proven” like the existence of gravity……

    Not sorted out. Different. Some ideas will stand the test of time. Some will be laughed at. And other ideas – unknowingly doomed to fall a couple hundred years even further – will take their place in the collective imagination.

    And I’m not talking about why scientist will attack. I’m talking about the layman – the average Joe who can’t peer review the material – who will nonetheless spit in your face (metaphorically speaking) if you question the validity of current theories/ideas – no matter how fantastic they sound – because they’ve been trained science is rock solid. I think the average person, like myself, has no clue how “theoretical” pop culture’s version of science is….

    The undeniable fact is – the laymen must put his faith in the scientists – and some are willing to do so rabidly…….even though they would admit that over the passage of time, much of science gets rewritten…

  • Lional punsalot

    Mass audiences may love it, but anyone that is a sci fi fan will find problems with the science, and anyone that loves the human elements will have a problem with understanding the science to begin with.

    It’s trying to be everything when it should have focused on being either a) really good human story or b) a fantastically accurate sci fi film. Trying to be both means failing at being either.

    That’s not to say its a bad film, it just means it isn’t the spectacular exhilarating whatever some people are calling it.

  • Lional punsalot

    resistance is futile.

    Am i doing it right?

  • Lional punsalot

    Nicely done, infuriating science deniers is no mean feat im proud of you.

  • Lional punsalot

    Things has value, its one of the most fascinating films to autopsy that I have ever come across.

    Apart from that jogger that crossed in front of my car.

  • Sully

    Shyamalan, Lucas, Nolan, Snyder.
    All good storytellers. All good filmmakers. All lousy when left to their own devices. Filmmaking is a collaborative process for a reason.

    The greatest friend to anyone in the industry isn’t the guy telling you your shit is gold, it’s the guy telling you your shit is shit.
    Surrounding yourself with yes men has never led anyone to making a “great” film. The critics may slow you down, but the final result will be worth it in the end.

  • mmp

    I wouldn’t put Nolan on the level of those three, but I can see your point.

  • Sully

    These were just examples, but the rules apply to all artist. The amount of filmmakers who can write, produce, direct, and edit their own stuff and have the end result not be some overly long and pretentious mess is extremely small.
    The number of filmmakers who can do this with a tentpole movie is smaller still.
    I’d put Nolan up there with Cameron in his ability to reign in himself, especially when compared to those like M. Night and Lucas, and like Cameron, even when the result is less than perfect, his films are still entertaining.

  • Punkster

    No sorry. It should be… EXTERMINATE!

  • Lional punsalot

    I just wonder, who would win between daleks and the borg.

  • Punkster

    Daleks… No question.
    Are you maybe comparing the Cyber-Men to the Borg? As they have the same basic premise. They are humanoids that integrate technology to better themselves and are now more machine than human.
    In that war I would have to say… No score draw.
    Cowardly answer I know. Lol

  • Lional punsalot

    But the borg always adapt and attack armed threats so the daleks cant board the borg cubes and the borg will eventually adapt to find a way to fight them. And both have access to time travel.

  • Punkster

    Yes that they do, maybe your right.
    The Daleks are like Super Geniuses though, ruthless and hate everything not Dalek. They would have blown up the Delta Quadrant before the Borg got a chance to exist. lol.
    As I say, the Borg are just Star Trek’s Cybermen and they had an army of thousands against 4 Daleks and lost.
    This is the part where a hardcore Whovian comes in and tells me I am wrong. 🙂

  • Lional punsalot

    The cyberman are pretty shit to be honest, I couldn’t imagine them putting up any kind of fight against the daleks.

    Also I am a hardcore whovian in terms of having watched all the seasons right back to william hartnel.

  • Punkster

    Ah well you’ll know that better than I. Cybermen are an interesting baddie but the stories they get in new who just suck.

    So you knew damned well what Daleks say? You scoundrel! Here was me using my head like a sucka, trying to educate you in the ways of the Whoniverse and you knew all along.
    Well I feel foolish, even more than usual. 😉

  • Lional punsalot

    I was doing like a thing. I’m English of course I know what the daleks say 🙂

    Don’t feel bad.

  • Ogrot

    1. Neither am I. But as someone who is actually interested in the subject I actually read up on it now and then. It also helps a lot that one of my friends from college is a physicist. So as a layman I might have a better handle than most, but if your so interested you don’t have to take anything on faith. You can always go to the library. Read about the experiments and the math and make a decision that’s a bit more than the uninformed gut instinct.

    2. Newton was categorically wrong about time as a constant five hundred years ago, but no one is laughing about Newton.

    3. No physicist from Newton on would argue with you that time is a measurement of something possibly not quantifiable. It is a variable meant to represent how the universe works from our perspective. One that physicists thought was a constant before Einstein, but one hard to work with on the quantum level even today.

    4. Planck scale time has been troublesome since quantum theory began. Relativity was designed for large objects and objects larger than planck scale traveling at the speed of light. And for those phenomena it has been an accurate tool for understanding, measuring, and modeling those aspects of the universe. Likewise quantum theory has done a much better job planck scale and below. Problem is no one has figured out how to bridge the two. Quantum theory has also just finally found the means for testing in the last twenty years in the vein of particle accelerators like CERN. So as tiny particles barely detectable by the best equipment we have collide in there, revision to quantum models in all aspects is likely as we observe how they behave in nature. The Wheeler-DeWitt equation is an attempt to reconcile these two models. It has yet to succeed in that.

  • Punkster

    I realised that eventually. Hence my shame.

    Black holes havn’t even been observed in the physical universe, all the science we know says going anywhere near a black hole is death, as mentioned in the review if the ship needed a huge rocket to get into space how the fuck can it take off from planets with higher gravity on its own and this is just the beginning of how wrong the movie is in regards to science. I do not know where you learned science but try again.

  • Red 6

    I predicted that general audiences wouldn’t understand this movie months before it was released as most Americans’ eyes will glaze over at the very mention of “relativity” and continue to shove popcorn in their faces wondering why the movie stopped thinking for them.

    But it’s looking promising for the average American because 2 Fast 2 Furious SEVEN is coming out just in time for Transformers 6.

  • Stormy

    science does not know all the answers faith is the only answer black holes are a conspiracy designed to lead us down the wrong path if you want a TRUE account of sci fi check out Left Behind a truly great movie at least in THAT movie you get the truth unlike this science FICTION

    What the what is Snyder doing there? I’m not a huge fan of any of the other 3, but they all have their merits. Lucas has Indiana Jones, ILM, Star Wars, American Graffiti, THX 1138. Nolan has Memento, and I can see why people love the Dark Knight trilogy and Inception. Shyamalan has The Sixth Sense, and *maybe* Unbreakable and Signs.

    Snyder belongs with Michael Bay, except his movies make much less money. Snyder’s “best” movie is a fucking remake. And we are not even talking of a remake like “Cronenberg’s The Fly” or “Carpenter’s The Thing”, where the remake is superior to the original.

    Other than that, I agree with what you wrote.

    It’s kind of bugging me now how the Top Commenters are derived. I thought I had solved it when I had the idea that maybe it was ordered by upvote count, but arranging everyone side by side proved that wrong pretty fast. I tried Googling about how it works, but there doesn’t seem to be any explanation. My guess is it must be some sort of comment/upvote algorithm.

  • Lional punsalot

    It used to be just post count, that changed today.

    Now we can’t tell how it is calculated because comment/ upvote doesn’t give the order that currently stands as of the change.

    It would be nice if discuss would tell us what the fuck they are doing but that’s too much to expect.

  • Sully

    I believe Snyder is a competent filmmaker. I included him because he has the tools to *be* more than he is, he just hasn’t outgrown his “Wouldn’t this be cool” phase.
    He’s shown he’s capable of putting together a compelling shot, and obviously has the charisma to bring the right names to his table. His biggest issue is, once he has a script in hand, he stops asking questions, which is a big mistake in my opinion.
    “Is this shot necessary?”
    “On a realism scale, does this character’s actions make sense?”
    “What are the protagonist’s/antagonist’s motivations, and are they realistic?”

    I wouldn’t put him with Bay, because Bay started out making competent action films (Bad Boys, The Rock), and somewhere along the line decided to sell out… completely. How can he focus on shit like story and character when every shot is a commercial for Chrysler or Timex.
    Snyder is in danger of sliding down this slope (Man of Steel), but hasn’t shown he’s stuck in the pit yet.
    There is, at the very least, some art to Snyder’s films. I don’t think anyone would deny that.

  • Sully

    I should hope not. I’m only six for chrissake!

  • Fartastic

    Can’t tell you what exactly they are doing, but I’m pretty sure the disqus’ in-house term for the decision to evaluate the upvotes is lex thompson.

  • Lional punsalot

    I agree with both of you, snyder isnt a michael bay, but he doesnt belong in the list with lucas and nolan.

    In fact all three deserve their own special lists.

    Lucas was a genius who became a demented hackfraud.
    Nolan is almost a great director when it comes to emotional cores but just doesnt get the details right.
    Snyder…I don’t like snyders films at all, so I will let you come up with his list because for me it would just be “he ruined superman fuck that guy”

  • Lional punsalot

    To add to this, i used to open say, andrews recent activity and post replies to him that way rather than searching for
