Saw it today, had some great moments, quite interesting movie, major surprise mindway in, at least it was to me. The surprise might have been sooner than midway in, I kind of dozed a bit, not so much the movies fault, I don't think.

Saw this film yesterday in 70mm IMAX (the only way to see it) Very impressive, indeed at times profound. Important landmark film. Not perfect- some loose ends- but in the end a message to respect the planet and our environment. The warmth and human touch are equally as important. The film's depiction of the 'Twin Paradox' aka 'Time Dilation' with Einstein's theory is accurate enough. Hours after seeing this film, well it gets into you head like a 'wasted bee'- and seemingly buzzes on forever- Few films have done this to me. Clocking in at nearly 3 hours- long but well worth the time stationary.

I saw it today….I liked it, and yes, there were some loose ends. Really wanted a shower afterwards.

I thought the movie was fantastic and my new number one movie. I wished it was longer and showed Matthew meeting Ann and having a love scene with full nudity, but that's just me.

I thought it was really good; the first movie I've seen (at a theatre) in a few years!

Inventive and almost all original.

The idea of our 'new planet' (circling Saturn) was taken directly from the book 'Rendezvous with Rama' by Arthur C. Clarke.

This is a flawed epic, but an epic none the less.

FIVE reasons why you should go watch this (in IMAX):
  1. The most beautiful images of space ever rendered on screen. Not just images of the earth from outer space, but even complex ideas like worm holes and black holes are captured beautifully on screen.
  2. One of Nolan's best movies (alright alright alright .... let's just ignore The Dark Knight for once ....)
  3. Clearly, one of the biggest sci-fi movies ever made. And yes, this movie is sci-fi heavy. Even Neil deGrasse Tyson thinks so.
  4. Great Performances by all actors and a strong human element to the story
  5. A science heavy twist in the movie. Whether you love it or hate it .... it will play with your head for a while. Yes, we are going beyond the three dimensions here ....

My husband and I also saw it at the IMAX this weekend, and SO worth the time and money! Loved the visuals and the human story line. And the science worked for both of us also.

Definite thumbs up!

That wasn't my thought, but, I did think there was an uncanny resemblance.
