Interstellar ★★★★½

Thanks to many great scientific ideas superbly explored and a grounded in reality approach to it, Interstellar is a hard science fiction film that works across the board. Its third act also worked for me as the bookcase scene, though too fantastical to some, is for me the most memorable and most fascinating part of the film. Matt Damon's character was a needless distraction, but all of the others were excellent with the father-daughter relationship being the heart and soul crux of the movie. The film is extremely emotional for this genre, but it mostly worked as it truly is very touching in that third act. The sound mixing is terrible, but the special effects are absolutely outstanding and a lot of the imagery here is quite unforgettable. The dialogue is also terrific as are the film's well explored themes. Consequently, Interstellar is Christopher Nolan's magnum opus and the only truly great film that he's made so far.
