Interstellar by Christopher Nolan
Cool story bro
With an exhausting (but fruitful) week in the rearview mirror, I wanted nothing more than to unwind, overeat a bit, and maybe watch a movie. When my movie-crazed sister Margot and Disney-crazed brother Marlon suggested we watch Interstellar, I happily obliged. Sarah was out for the night, I remember having heard great things about the Christopher Nolan vehicle, and a reunion of siblings in the new apartment is always a good idea. Bring on the space and stuff!

The skinny

It's the twenty-first century. The earth is giving out and civilization has become a (failing) agrarian society. Former NASA astronaut Cooper (an out-of-this-world Matthew McConaughey) is running a farm with his father (John Litgow), teenage son (Casey Affleck), and 10-year-old daughter Murphy (Renesmee Mackenzie Foy) when a set of binary coded coordinates lead him to a secret NASA installation. There they meet one of Cooper's college professors, Dr. John Brand (Michael Caine), who has been investigating new planets in another galaxy that may offer hope for humanity's survival. Brand recruits Cooper to recover data by previous scientists.

The review

I thought Interstellar was promising for the first 100 minutes or so, but then it started giving me a headache.
