I'm sure to be covering this film for sure but love to get your thoughts.. Subscribe so you don't miss it. We could all watch it together! Is this a film that time has clouded our vision and it's not really very good - or does it still hold up today as being original and thought provoking. That's how I remember it so it'll be nice to see once I re watch it. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChZ1UPhR3D5wIsjLNe6hWJw

The blight wasn't just killing the food, it was also rapidly depleting oxygen faster than it could be replaced, hence the mission of get everyone into space at the same time with one ship and a not-yet-functional physics equation to drive it.

If you are forcing yourself to watch a movie when you already hate it, you're going to miss plot points.

Interstellar was just like Inception. It assumed the viewer wasn't stupid and could extrapolate their own data. Interstellar does require a modicum of astrophysics theory, true, but it's nothing more difficult than turning off the TV and reading a book for a couple hours a day instead :)

My show on Alfred Bester - one of the Godfathers of modern science fiction Pt 1 of 2.

He is a total inspiration to the the new wave that came after him.

Remarkably silly in places. We're expected to believe that a man who's devoted his whole life to looking after plants doesn't know that they need light.

I definately want to watch this again. I have rather vague memories of watching it on TV in my youth, so its well overdue a view. I like the idea of watching together one evening !
