When it’s your time, it’s your time. Matthew McConaughey is on a roll. His performance in Interstellar was fantastic. Matthew played Cooper, a retired NASA test pilot, turned farmer, who has a passion for space, flying and discovery. Anne Hathaway was equally magnificent in the role of biologist Amelia, the daughter of a renowned scientist named Brand, played by Michael Cain. The special effects and the great attention to detail is nothing short of phenomenal. Interstellar is a blockbuster of a movie that is well suited for those with a scientific mind and a real sense of adventure. I couldn’t begin to tell you of all the complicated jargon that went into Interstellar to complete this level of cosmic interest. Interstellar is about a team of space travelers who must travel through a wormhole in search of a habitable planet. It seems that Earth’s natural resources are at the brink of extinction, causing us to regress to an agrarian civilization, which is failing. According to Brand, there are 3 planets on the other side of the wormhole that qualify as worthy candidates. At this point, the story gets too complicated for this review but I will tell you that Interstellar has it all, from the “Endurance” that Cooper pilots, to the 2 robots (Case and Tars) that accompany the crew on their journey to the black hole called Gargantua. There is time travel and time lines that are truly fascinating. Cooper’s daughter Murphy, who is called Murph throughout the entire movie becomes a central character and is played by 3 different actresses. In the end, Cooper, who is raising his 2 children (Tom and Murph) must decide between seeing his children again and the future of the human race. Exciting, interesting, entertaining and thought provoking are some of the words that best describe this movie. Interstellar is 2 hours and 49 minutes well worth spending both your time and money to see but is not for everyone. Some folks may find it too scientific!
