New Interstellar Movie Delivered Great Drama,Action,Twists & More
Paramount Pictures released their new sci-fi/drama movie, “Interstellar,” into theaters this weekend. I checked it out yesterday, and thought it was way better than I originally thought it would be. It had a runtime of an epic 3 hours that I found to be quite interesting the whole time. It delivered non-stop drama,action and major plot twists that just kept my head spinning. It stars: Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Ellen Burstyn, John Lithgow, Michael Caine, Casey Affleck, Wes Bentley, Bill Irwin, Mackenzie Foy, Topher Grace and David Gyasi.
In the new flick, the preface revolved around the fact that the Earth would no longer be able to sustain humanity in the not too distant future. Crops are routinely ravaged by blight,dust storms scour the land, and mankind has regressed to an agrarian society. Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), a former NASA test pilot and engineer turned farmer, is currently living with his family, including his father-in-law Donald, son Tom, and ten-year-old daughter Murphy (Mackenzie Foy) nicknamed Murph.
Murph believes their house is haunted by a ghost that is trying to communicate to her. Challenging Murph to prove the ghost’s existence through scientific inquiry, Cooper discovers that the “ghost” is an unknown form of intelligence sending them coded messages by means of gravitational anomaly, altering the dust on the floor in a pattern that resembles morse code, directing them to a secret NASA installation led by Professor Brand.
Once they get there, it’s eventually revealed that they’ve been working on a plan to visit a wormhole that has been discovered in the solar system orbiting Saturn, and that humanity’s only chance for survival is to travel through the wormhole to colonize new worlds in another galaxy. After much prodding, Cooper agrees to pilot the Endurance ship, which is an experimental spacecraft, through the wormhole.
After leaving a very upset Murph behind, Cooper and his crew eventually make it through the wormhole 2 years later. However, after trying to visit a candidate planet that’s in close proximity to Gargantua, which is a nearby rotating black hole, and due to its gravitational pull, time on the planet is extremely slower than on Earth. Like 7 years per hour that they’re on it. When they get there, they discover that the planet is inhospitable as giant tidal waves race across its surface. They get caught up in one, causing them to get delayed an hour, and when they return back to the Endurance ship, a whopping 23 years have past.
Back on Earth, Murph is now an adult and has joined NASA where she attempts to solve a physics problem that has troubled Brand for years: the question of how humans can escape Earth’s gravitational pull en masse. Eventually, Professor Brand reveals to Murph on his death bed that his plan was for Cooper and the crew to never return back to save them, but to colonize on one of the planets to keep the human race going.
That, of course, infuriates Murph. However, she never fully believes that her father knew that. From there, some major twists kick in, ultimately leading to a scene where, Copper takes a trip through a black hole, and at the end of it, he finds himself in an extra-dimensional space where time is not linear. Cooper realizes the extra-dimensional beings are in fact a future form of humanity who have evolved to the point of transcending time and space.
He communicates with Murph across the dimensional barrier from inside a tesseract through gravitational waves, making him the “ghost” from her childhood. With this information, Murph is able to complete Brand’s equation, allowing Earth’s population to be evacuated.
Again, I really enjoyed watching this film for the entire 3 hour runtime. There was not even one second where the plot dragged along. The whole damn thing was just really intriguing, especially towards the end with the whole black hole and everything. I gave it an excellent A grade. Stay tuned.
