Interstellar is a movie that you must watch at least once in your lifetime.
|"The end of Earth will not be the end of us"|
When the genius of Christopher Nolan meets the creative mind of Hans Zimmer, one thing of which we can be assured of is a timeless masterpiece. We saw that happen in The Batman Trilogy and also in the fascinating-yet-confusing movie Inception. And now, in their most recent work Interstellar, we see them working together once again, and blowing our minds away... once again.
For science purists, the movie had the well known theoretical physicist Kip Thorne working as executive producer and scientific consultant. Famous astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson also vouched for the science behind the movie, so rest assured, it is as scientifically accurate as a movie can be.
A plot that works on every levelThe movie is set in the distant future, where the planet Earth is slowly becoming uninhabitable for humans. In order to survive a group are asked to go on a journey through space in order to find another home for the human species.
However, what adds another dimension to the film is the father-daughter relationship between Coop and Murphy. While Coop is out there in space, piloting the Endurance craft to another galaxy, Murphy is back on Earth There, she's attempting to solve the riddle of gravity in hopes of successfully transporting the entire human race to their new home. The underlying plot of saving our species, coupled with love of the strongest kind, will definitely give you goose bumps.
Another interesting fact about the movie is that if you have ever wanted to understand how Einstein’s theory of relativity works, Interstellar explains it as well as anyone can. Plus, you also get to learn about concepts like Black Holes and Wormholes.
Art that can shape the future?Moving on, the movie subtly brings up one of the most intriguing questions we face as a species – what is going to happen when we exhaust the resources of the planet we live on? This is a question that future generations will have to answer, but the amount of time they have to do it in will depend on decisions we make in the near future - so it's good news when high-profile movies raise it. In any case, Interstellar is a movie that you must watch at least once in your lifetime.
