I've been an enthusiastic fan of Christopher Nolan ever since I first saw Memento, so I saw Interstellar as soon as it came out in theaters. And, didn't really like it. Later, when it came out on disk, I thought that perhaps I had been in a bad mood when it saw it for the first time, and I would come to my senses if I rented it from the library. But I still didn't like it. The beginning scenes I didn't like because they were like the Grapes of Wrath, shoe-horned into a sci-fi movie. The middle scenes I liked pretty much - I loved the action on Damon's planet. At that point, I thought it was about done, but then I had to watch another half hour of a mixture of n-th dimensional geometry (I think that was the "thought-provoking" comment on Rotten Tomatoes) and tear-jerking about his daughter. (Very contemporary - no tears shed over his son.)

I feel like I need to watch this again and get my PhD to fully grasp what was going on in this film. I like the cast and they were wonderful, but some things I couldn't understand. Oh well.

the first 5 minutes come across as a throw away, however the ENTIRE premise of the movie (Gravity Fluctuation) is built upon this.. this.. whatever this is. So this ALL comes down to ANOTHER movie where someone has a master plan in their mind but it's too complicated or too convoluted to ever fully translate to a sensible movie. AND just like movies now-a-days it's all glitter/glam and visual effects to wow you away from plot holes. The WOW keeps you in the movie the first time but everything falls apart like a Jenga tower on a second viewing. LASTLY a plank shaped robot REALLY.. this had to be planned so the robot wouldn't steal the show.. the fact that it was a plank robot would have really peeved me off if I had paid money for this at a theater..

It was an okay movie .. able to watch the whole thing. Seems Matthew was a bit overacting.

Directed, co-written and co-produced by Christopher Nolan in 2014, this SF drama delves into the search of a new home for humanity.
Although its themes and visual effects appear great, you definitely need a willing suspension of disbelief when you see the travel through a wormhole near Saturn, which leads a path to a distant galaxy with twelve potentially habitable planets located near a black hole named "Gargantua".
Some aspects seem profoundly silly.
For example, the protagonist sees through the bookcases of his daughter's old room on Earth and weakly interact with its gravity, which looks absolutely ridiculous!
The director might have thought about going beyong "2001: A Space Odyssey".
Although it's a nice try, he seems to fail to do so.
In any case, I enjoyed viewing an intersteller travel.

This is an excellent science fiction. A NASA pilot is forced to farm on a dying Earth when a message is sent via Gravity from (spoiler).... The father is given coordinates that lead both he and his daughter to a secret NASA installation where a great adventure is about to begin. The Science is theoretically plausible and I personally had no problem understanding it, though I could see where some might. Take the movie for what it is..... A fantastic James Cameron Collaboration. Enjoy.

How emotional! My adult man children cried, and found it sucky that I picked a syfy tear jerker. You couldn't help but conect. The love one has for another is greater than for themselves. A love a parent has for a child is he beyound measure.

Love this movie!

The acting and action were good, but the last section of the film wasn't even remotely plausible and seemed just hurried through to complete the film.

I think many of the comments below never gave the movie a chance. It's not really about science because it's made to be an allegory. What would happen if you could bend time and space and metaphysically reach those of the past? Could you alter the future of the present? Some of these questions revolve around love as a theme as something that transcends the laws of physics and science. Thus, many people who see the psuedo-science of this film will not see its meaning and will find it pretentious or otherwise terrible. Think "Inception," but about time, space and love instead of dreams. It's always a trip watching Nolans' films!

Be warned: it's essentially a children's movie. Farmer turns up at a secret NASA base and gets onto the next mission with a humanoid robot. . . And that's when I hit the eject button.

Do not go gentle into that good night; Old age should burn and rave at close of day. Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

From IMDb:

Doyle: You can't just think about your family. You have to think bigger than that.
Cooper: I'm thinking about my family and millions of other families.

Doyle: We have a mission.
Cooper: Our mission does not work if the people on Earth are dead by the time we pull it off.

Brand: You might have to decide between seeing your children again and the future of the human race.

Cooper: Once you're a parent, you're the ghost of your children's future.

Cooper: We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.
