I remember when I saw Interstellar for the first time. I was going to a midnight showing of The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug and they played a teaser for the movie. I remember watching that teaser and at first, from the way they made it look, I thought it was a documentary or something. But then the word Interstellar appeared on the side of the screen in a strange vertical fashion and I was just confused at what the movie was.
Then the first trailer came out and whenever I saw it in the movies it would always give me so many chills that it was ridiculous. It totally made me want to see this movie. Then I saw the second trailer and it slightly dissuaded me from wanting to watch the film because it showed Matthew McConaughey’s daughter in the movie crying too much. But I did end up seeing it and long story short I was absolutely flabbergasted at not only how ridiculously amazing the movie was from a visual standpoint but also a writing standpoint as well.
Interstellar was my first Christopher Nolan film that I had watched and it still is the best Christopher Nolan movie that I have seen so far. He took this incredible science-fiction story about a small group of people who were trying to save humans from extinction on Earth and made it the most captivating movie I have ever seen.
It’s been a little over three years since this movie came out and after watching it a few days ago (because I own this movie) I was still looking at the film it in utter awe and fascination. The story is so complex that even, after all of this time, I’m still hearing and seeing new things. It’s absolutely incredible.
There are four reasons why this is one of the greatest movies ever made.
