Interstellar review: Our thoughts

In 2067, crop blights and dust storms threatened humanity’s survival. A crew of astronauts are sent to travel to the other end of the galaxy to find a new habitable planet to call home. Directed by Christopher Nolan, Interstellar is one of the most thought-provoking, boldest and most ambitious sci-fi movies ever.

With the likes of Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine, and Matt Damon, there’s no surprise that Christopher and Jonathan Nolan get deep and intimate with character detail. Despite the nearly three-hour-long visually stunning space voyage, the Nolan brothers manage to beautifully portray the values of a father-daughter relationship and maintain the thought that mankind can overcome the impossible.

Our highlight of this mind-blowing movie was towards the end. As you’re left speechless still trying to piece together the thought-provoking story, the last 15 minutes begin to unravel it all and will without a doubt blow your mind. We promise this is a movie you will never forget and will forever be considered one of the greatest space sci-fi movies of all time.

From start to finish, the cinematography and visual effects throughout make Interstellar a visual masterpiece. At the 87th Academy Awards, the film won the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects and was nominated for Best Original Score, Best Sound Mixing, Best Sound Editing and Best Production Design.
