Review: Interstellar

While “Gravity” was content to send viewers crashing back to Earth, “Interstellar” sends audiences soaring to the stars and beyond in a space-faring film unlike anything we’ve seen on the big screen in decades. At times, it’s a bumpy and clunky ride, but the boundless imagination of Director/co-writer Christopher Nolan makes it one worth strapping into a theater seat to experience.

‘Inception’ review

One of the more exciting parts of this gig, besides seeing modern-day classics like “Macgruber” and “Marmaduke” of course, is seeing a brilliant film for the first time. Nothing can quite top that sense of awe and wonder about what’s going to happen next. While it won’t be the exact same, I imagine that in watching ‘Inception’ very little of that awe and wonder will diminish from one of the most groundbreaking and original films I’ve seen in the last decade.

This really shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone since ‘Inception’ was written and directed by Christopher Nolan, the genius behind “Memento,” “The Prestige” and the second highest grossing movie of all time “The Dark Knight.” [2012 FF: Stupid “Avatar!”]  “Inception” is Nolan’s sixth full-length film, and marks the last indicator that he’s operating on a totally different level than his peers. He doesn’t need 3D or any other here today, gone tomorrow fad to sell movie tickets. His gimmick? Exemplary storytelling that draws you in and keeps you thinking about what you’ve just witnessed long after the final credits. Continue reading ‘Inception’ review
