2018 Film Challenge: 11. Interstellar

A friend of mine kept telling meĀ  I should watch this, so I’m pleased I’ve finally gotten round to it. Especially as I really enjoyed it. It took a little while to get going, plus I had some audio issues early on (the speech was really quiet and the sound effects were really loud!), but after some fiddling with my TV’s settings, I thankfully got that sorted. It’s quite a long film (almost 3 hours), but doesn’t feel as long as that, thankfully.

The notes I made whilst watching it:

  • This doesn’t seem like a fun place to live
  • This girl’s kinda awesome
  • That’s one weird robot
  • OK, this is getting quite intriguing now
  • I’m feeling slightly dizzy just watching that
  • Those stasis pod things look terrifying!
  • I’ve never seen the appeal of being an astronaut
  • This reminds me a bit of Flight Of The Navigator, when they go back in time
  • Seriously, who designed that robot thing? It doesn’t seem very ergonomic.
  • OK, I take it back – I didn’t realise it could do that cartwheel thing
  • This is like the craziest ever log flume
  • I just realised I mixed this film up with Arrival in my head!
  • Ooh, I was expecting him to be much older for some reason. And not Matt Damon.
  • WTF?
  • Ugh Casey Affleck
  • Noooo
  • Come on, Murph, save the day! Show these men how it’s done.
  • Sass from the robot
  • Oh, that’s not good
  • None of this looks fun
  • Woah!!!
  • I’d have had a heart attack by now. OK, long before now.
  • Woah, OK, didn’t see that coming.
  • Who’s getting a bit emotional? I don’t know what you mean…
  • I kinda love the robot now
  • I might have cried a bit

    I’ve had this on blu-ray (the rather nice digibook edition) since it came out, but once again I’d never got around to watching it (sidenote: I’ve stopped buying blu-ray now, until I can make in roads on the literally hundreds of unwatched discs I have amassed).

    I’m not sure it was solely your TV settings that caused your audio discomfort, I’ve found Hans Zimmer’s scores excessively loud before. I actually like his composition, but found that early on here it went beyond building tension and strayed into distraction territory at times. Thankfully, it settled down a little way into the film.

    Anyway, I really enjoyed this. It was much more about human emotion and relationships than I was expecting, but that’s no bad thing. I thought there were some great performances, and I too loved the robot (I especially liked that he was basically a bit, erm, crappy looking!).

    Overall, I found the three hours zipped by, and would definitely recommend this if someone were to ask me.
