Walking into the movie theatre on Saturday night, I was not exactly pumped to see yet another space movie. I knew that my predisposition for distaste of space movies was bound to be disproven given the IMDb scores and rotten tomato ratings, but what I saw in that theatre was anything but predictable.

 

This complex movie was the best of both worlds. Starting off with a in site view on Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), a farmer in a future dystopian earth where food supply is running short as the world is struggling to support it’s inhabitants.

 

Cooper along with his family reveal the changes the earth has undergone in it’s unraveling; people are urged to be farmers, not thinkers, much to the disdain of Cooper’s creative mind. As we find out more about his past, it is clear that his daughter, Murph (Mackenzie Foy) has inherited his brilliant mind as she uncovers a gravitational anomaly in her bedroom.

 

Through this discovery, Cooper and a team are launched into space inside of a wormhole to find a place for the human race to inhabit. The struggles are extreme, betrayals and deaths a multitude; as Cooper is taken on this journey his daughter (Jessica Chastain) is pushed to the limits awaiting his arrival home with the world demolishing around her.

 

In the duration of the movie there was a perfect blend of science and emotion. Just when one gets to be too overpowering the other took control, re engaging the interest of viewers.

 

Interstellar is a stacked cast with the likes of Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway along with some recognizable supporting actors. This movie moves in directions you never expect with a plot that is completely unpredictable. A must see for people who love movies that make them think and are not afraid of intense action.
