‘Interstellar’ Ending & Space Travel Explained

Interesting movie, hard to follow at first.

I saw it tonight, and I *really* liked it. No really - like I cried a little bit at the key moments.

3 hours - note to those with small bladders and small kids

I regret seeing it on a matinee on a 'std' screen. I will go see it AGAIN, bringing someone I care deeply for, on the IMAX 3D screen. Because those really large scale space fly-bys I think will "look especially good" in IMAX 3D.

But intriguing story, the scope of which is way over most people's head. Perhaps they should stay corn/okra farmers back on earth, the rest of us got rocket ships to build. And I'll need my own personal TARS.

There is no IMAX 3D version of the movie. Just IMAX 70mm

Christopher Nolan talks 'Interstellar,' not using 3D and why he doesn

I just look at it and it seems dated and uninspired. One, we're moving away from global warming so maybe an ice age would have been more interesting. But even that's been done( Day After Tomorrow). And I can't take a space travel/ save mankind flick too seriously because we're probably already at least 50 years ahead of what we're supposed to have technologically with black ops, Area 51, etc. So we've probably been to Mars( which would have to be the first choice for another world) or already have a base there. That's not even assuming aliens aren't around to really give us a hand or to prevent it from happening in the first place.

Loved this movie. Saw it twice, first in faux-Imax (just a bigger screen) and once in real Imax. The difference was noticeable, and the audio was perfect the second time. Highly recommend paying the extra money for the Imax experience.

Liked it a lot...touched at the end very much...a lot to digest...slow in the beginning.
I thought the previews did it harm...seeing cornfields, then a jump to Matthew with a space suit on...looked stupid to me...but it wasn't.
Excellent casting, special fx, so much conflict of human emotions...I liked it.
Michael Caine and Ellen Burstyn both 81...gee.
Good to see some TV characters being able to work the bigtime, happy for them.
Wish I could say more and ask some things.

A lot of love expressed in it.

I've spent two weeks reading everything online about this movie -- pretty much all questions you might have are probably answered. You could start with wired.com -- Wired magazine, which is being guest-edited by Christopher Nolan this month. It's a pretty amazing collection of articles, nicely done.
Really, a quick google search of news on Interstellar will reap a host of quality articles. I've learned so much!!!

My family and I have a video of the day tradition after dinner each night -- and it's been completely Interstellar-related for two weeks now. Everything from the behind-the-scenes of sound editing, to the science of black holes, to the fascinating documentary that McConaughey narrated, etc etc... Good stuff.

Looks like this is going to be one of Christopher Nolan's greatest movies. Matthew McConaughey stars in this movie and appears to fit the role quite well. This is definitely going to be the year's best movie.
Appeared like a depressing film in the trailers so I let it go. Maybe check in once on cable.
