Interstellar (2014) Movie Review: Love, Love Me Do, Maybe More.
The review contains SPOILERS
Language : English | Running Time : 169 Minutes | Director : Christopher Nolan
As usual, a Christopher Nolan film has generated enough polarizing views. How can it not? We are talking about a filmmaker whom a legion considers their God. This set of audience has gone on to claim that “Interstellar” is a work of so many great things in it that it is not only comparable to Stanley Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey” but also better than it. There’s another set of audience who didn’t understand the vision or the packaging of Nolan’s tale that they’ve dismissed it as silly, with some people going s far as bringing their dusty old physics text books out to argue about the wormholes and space-time continuum. These are the people the film isn’t aimed for.

Interstellar (2014) Movie Review: “Gracious.” “No, But Efficient.”
Reportedly, Christopher Nolan walked up to composer Hans Zimmer and gave him a really short story about a father leaving his son for some unspecified reason. Hans Zimmer wrote something in a day, and that’s the music Nolan used for Interstellar, an epic about humanity looking for an extraterrestrial home because of the impending death of the earth and a dad being forced to leave his daughter by his sense of duty. I found this out after the end of the film, and the whole movie I was thinking that it was being made significantly more awesome by the music. There’s nothing better for a movie about space exploration as a lethal taskmaster as well as the frontier of human knowledge than a melancholy and poignant score as opposed to the deep bass thrums Zimmer usually puts in Nolan’s movies.Continue reading “Interstellar (2014) Movie Review: “Gracious.” “No, But Efficient.””

The 10 Best Film Scores of 2013
Imagine a movie with no sound at all. The movie would be just a series of photographs moving at 24 frames per second for an hour and a half or more.

The greatest Superhero story ever told
There are some films which are just meant to be unapologetic mindless entertainers – Housefull 1&2, Priyadarshan Comedies, many of the Roger Moore/PierceBrosnan James bond films etc. Then there are some films which at least try to be smart – Kahaani, Khakee, KKG, Agent Vinod, Spiderman 1, Casino Royle etc. Then there are others which are layered, deep and the sub texts overweigh what is actually happening on screen – OLLO, Shanghai etc. Continue reading “The greatest Superhero story ever told”
