Opening day, ok, I took a chance at the early show and was rewarded! This movie feels epic, although some may not like it. Mathew McConaughey does a great job. Great conceptual ideas and heady stuff, but possibly hard to comprehend. I give it a thumbs up, but there is room for critiques and imo unanswered questions. You just have to go with what the story tells you. Relativity plays a huge role in the story. ________________________________________________ Spoilers that follow are not hidden... stop here if you've not seen it. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . In this science fiction movie a problem is presented, one that will wipe out the human race, with no available solution other than to escape from Earth, but something about gravity is needed, an equation that will allow us to escape in mass as long as we find another planet to live on. Devoted scientist, Dr. Brand (Michael Kane) has been working on this solution for 40 years, but his solution fails because he can't retrieve necessary quantum data that just so happens to be on the other side of the newly discovered worm/black hole in our solar system. This convenient worm/black hole is out by Saturn and probes that have been sent through show there are 12 possible planets to live on. So it would be win-win, a livable planet closer than 100 years to get to and the answer to an equation about gravity that will allow us to escape Earth in mass. Discussion: *The original team transverses the worm hole without issue, so what is this grand 3 blackboards wide formula going to fix, overcoming gravity to move a large space station built underground off the planet? When a plot turns on an an unknown like this, something vague and made up, that changes the nature of gravity, it can be rightly critiqued, Imo, but I was able to get past that. Besides Gravity is one of the elements manipulated by the future beings we don't see. *Cooper (McConaughey) sends back the quantum data to his daughter Murphy, by means of a watch with a twitchy second hand signaling morse code, which we are left to imagine how he did that, but they don't show the result of how this data is utilized. It can be assumed the space station was lifted and somehow it makes the evacuation of Earth easier. *At a point 120 years from the beginning of the story, after Murphy has solved the gravity equation, is the human race moving to live on the planet Amelia has found herself on, the planet located through the worm hole, or are they just content to float around this solar system in large livable habitats? Not really addressed. *The hardest concept to comprehend, why the constructed 3D space inside the singularity that allows Cooper to send his daughter the needed data to complete the gravity equation- this is something constructed by "us", as in human beings from the future who have evolved into 5D entities (gravity and time) and they are also responsible for the positioning of worm hole which makes them very very futuristic, all most God-like. Why would our future selves need to help our present selves? We obviously made it to the future. So has the future all ready happened or is it happening simotaneously with the present? Is this a paradox? At first I thought the robot, the walking slab was stupid, but it had so much character I grew to love it.
