- Christopher Nolan tries his hand at 2001: A Space Odyssey
- A strange and unexplained natural (?) phenomenon apparently caused by man's opulence is slowly destroying all the food sources on Earth
- Coop (Matthew McConaughey), a former aircraft pilot, has had to settle into his new life as a crop farmer following the (global?) decision to decommision space exploration to focus on saving the Earth and humans
- He feels very much like a failure because he was good at something and never really got the chance to shine, but has a family (son, daughter, dead wife, father-in-law) that he loves / loves him and puts his personal drives aside for now
- Murph (various) is his very smart but slightly disfunctional daughter who is convinced she is being communicated to by ghosts in their house
- After these "ghosts" relay some co-ordinates to Murph, both she and Coop investigate and find that NASA hasn't actually been decommissioned, but instead has been sending out Lazarus parties to investigate the opportunity for life on other worlds (using a wormhole discovered in space)
- Coop is offered the opportunity to leave Earth behind (temporarily) to pilot a vessel with a research team to each of the planets that have been discovered as potential new homes then report back and bring the cavalry with them
- Then... I could be here all day...
- Space scenes are exceptional, really brings up the tension at key points in the movie
- Nice comic relief too, especially the robots
- Acting by all is top-notch for the most part, if slightly over-the-top in parts (Matthew McConaughey I'm looking at you), although Anne Hathaway seemed a bit shell-shocked throughout for some reason
- Takes on space / time travel / other dimensions pretty well, and tackles "God" being the driving force behind what some people see / do without every really mentioning religion
- However, also takes a few liberties with scientific theories for the sake of entertainment
- 3 hours... prepare your butts...
- Some of the dialogue got a bit hard to hear at times for me, although might just have been the cinema I was in... but have seen others complaining about this too
- Slow third act
- Way too fucking mushy for me at times... especially the ending...
4 KFC buckets out of 5, solid movie (isn't quite 2001 though) but the last part(s) were a bit too kitsch for me
