Interstellar - Review

Certain things in life are precious. Very precious. And so was the Film for me.

Why you might ask?

Well seldom do i get the chance where i find myself sitting in a cinema anxious and intrigued by what might come. In a time where trailers are omnipresent and going to the movies without having seen one seems unreasonable, outright stupid to some i had the magical chance to find myself in front of the IMAX on a cold November night with 2 tickets to Interstellar. My only knowledge was that Nolan directed it and McConaughey stars in it.

The images were brilliant the acting was top notch and everything was blended together by Hans Zimmer and his Music. 169 minutes flew by me with my eyes fixed on the screen and my heart racing. And there it was.. The ending. I couldn't believe it . I was reliving, rethinking the movie while the credit scenes rolled enjoying the moment, the smell of popcorn, my comfortable seat and what do i see next to me? Ninety percent of the people in the cinema rushing outside after the first second of the credit scenes.

..

.

Well apparently people enjoy movies different than i do. Maybe i should start watching trailers again :).

Trivia

The oft-quoted lines beginning with "Do not go gentle into that good night" are from a poem by Dylan Thomas.


Quotes

Doyle: Where's the rest?
Brand: Towards the mountains!
Cooper: Those aren't mountains... they're waves.
Brand: Oh shit. Oh shit!
Cooper: That one's moving away from us...
Brand: We need the recorder!
Cooper: Brand, Doyle, back to the Ranger, now!


Goofs

After Cooper decides he is leaving for the mission, during ascent in the Ranger TARS announces first that he is "beginning roll pro-grade" then goes on to say "prepare for stage 1 separation... Stage 1... there it is, Mach 1." Instead TARS should have announced reaching Mach 1 long before Stage 1 separation. At this point in the ascent by the time the first stage is depleted they would already be going much faster than Mach 1, around 2,300 m/s which is closer to Mach 7. This is possible because as the vehicle gains altitude, air density drops, reducing aerodynamic drag and increasing terminal velocity, allowing the vehicle to go much faster than possible at sea level. The Apollo program utilized its first two stages this way: the first main ascent stage (S-IC) was capable of reaching the edge of the upper atmosphere, but at this point the vehicle would still reenter as it does not have the necessary horizontal velocity to achieve a full orbit. The second stage (S-II) would then be activated to build the horizontal velocity needed to achieve LEO (Low Earth Orbit). Staging is done this way on purpose (using maths) and is very important to save fuel, possibly the most important resource in space besides life support itself. In the movie, the rocket they show used to launch the Ranger is very reminiscent of the first two stages of the Saturn V (Apollo vehicle) with a Ranger attached on top. No operational launch vehicle has ever surpassed the Saturn V in height, weight, total impulse, or payload capability. As this is NASA and not a private space firm doing these missions, it is safe to assume they would re-use effective & proven older designs with slight modifications (payload is now a Ranger) to perform these missions, especially to save on time and development costs. Saturn V and Apollo program details per Wikipedia, knowledge of it per KSP and FAR.


Crazy Credits

There are no opening credits, except for the title.


Alternate Versions

The 70mm IMAX version is two minutes shorter than the regular 70mm, Digital IMAX, 35mm, and digital projection versions. This is because the end credits are played in an abbreviated slide-show form (rather than scrolling from bottom to top), due to the size capacity of the IMAX platters, which can hold a maximum of 167 minutes of film.
