Well as long as Matthew McConaughey gets another best actor Oscar nomination out of this I will be happy. Once more people have seen it and re watched it I'm thinking it will settle below a 8.5/10 on imdb its currently at 9.0/10.

No chance of that. 9.0 with ~200k ratings already. It will go down to 8.7 at worst.


It will go down below 8.5 eventually it just going to take longer since it already has a lot of votes.

I saw Interstellar on the weekend, man it sucked. So many plot holes, physics fails and scenes and story that was excessively dragged out. Reminded me of Gravity (but not 'quite' as bad). It seems they took multiple movie plots and slammed them together without much thought to how it would work.

Like what?

Why the hell was mann trying to kill them and steal the ship. Once at the planet all he had to do was say, oops I lied, now they have to go to the next planet with him, completely idiotic story line.

I will only answer to this, the story line is not idiotic, it's just you didnt understand.

 

Mann tried to kill him because he wanted to go back to earth, Mann couldnt let him do that, so he had to kill him to be in charge and visit the other planet instead of going back to earth.

He was only going back to earth because they had supposedly found a viable planet and hence he was supposedly no longer required. They would have been forced to visit the other planet merely by him having said, oops I lied.


No, you didnt follow the story, he wouldnt have visited the other planet because he was mad against the old man who sent him on this mission with a lie and decided the generation of his daughter was doomed, so he was going back to earth to see his daughter no matter what, he didnt give a shit about the mission anymore after he discovered that,  Maan knew that, he couldnt take that risk.

That still doesn't make any sense, he was not in command, There were 3 others that all would have stopped him taking the ship back to earth. mad or not one person doesn't get to control everyone, it is just a silly approach to the story that because he was scared one person might say no he tries to kill them all. the 3 of them plus the robot would have easily been able to overrule him wanting to take the ship back.


No, he is the leader and the girl was ok to take the ship back to earth when she learnt the truth, she was also disgusted too.



Predictions for end of 2014 HW sales:

 PS4: 17m   XB1: 10m    WiiU: 10m   Vita: 10m

To me, it felt like Kojima had done it

The first half was poorly cut, with every scene taking twice as long as it needed to

Then the second half was better, though in a less Kojima way, it simply relied on all the characters making absurdly stupid decisions to keep the plot going

Then the ending.... As someone who studied physics at University, it was almost insulting to put that nonsense in there

While the physics were mostly good (I have issues with the shuttle craft), the way it kept that high level and then let itself down was really disappointing.

But it was REALLY PRETTY! I watched it at the BFI IMAX which is the largest screen in Britain and those IMAX shots were truly stunning. Shame the plot wasn't


I think the ending was attempting to bring in some spiritual/religious aspects, like having future humans play a godlike role in saving Cooper and putting him in the position to help his daughter save the earth.

It wasn't meant for the final part of the film to fit within our current knowledge of physics, because like anything involving godlike beings, our physics doesn't apply.

 

Just replace Future Humans with Gods (or just say a bunch of wizards did it) and the story makes much more sense

Not going to go into them all, but some of the obvious fails and plot holes.

1. a planet with waves of that height would have such massive tidal forces at play that it would tear the planet apart.

2. When working out which planet to visit first they don't bother to include the 7 years in their calculation as time to visit the planet and decide it is the closest, it is actually the furthest away scientifically and the most expensive to visit and hence would have been done last.

3. The total retard moment of her on the planet trying to retrieve data which is obviously useless as the planet has damn giant waves on it. cliche moment which reminded me of the moron scientists in prometheus.

4. If there was a blight on earth wiping out crops space would not be the option humans would be spending their time on, We can already create domes with sealed environments on earth for food production. You could easily and more economically produce sealed environments many times the size of any space station that could be created.

5. Why the hell was mann trying to kill them and steal the ship. Once at the planet all he had to do was say, oops I lied, now they have to go to the next planet with him, completely idiotic story line.

6. how could they possibly even approach the event horizon of a black hole, they would have been completely crushed by the gravitational forces long before getting even close let alone try to cross the event horizon and send signals out.

7. Whether it was humans in the future or aliens the concept that they were smart enough to create 5 dimensional representation of space yet still needed to bring him there to talk to his daughter in the past was just dumb.

1. Eh, I am going to need to see the science behind that. 

2. I'm pretty sure they talked about the 7 years point.

3. I'll give you that, but she was emotional which completely destroys reason much of the time.

4. The epitome of nitpicking imo. There would've been no movie in that case lol. Some liberties need to be taken to make movies...

5. He explains that himself. He doesn't want them to find out he was selfish (he sent the signal despite the planet not being inhabitable). He only wanted to save himself after such a long time on the planet. Do you know how you'd feel after so many years alone on a distant planet?

6. Hmm, how close did they go? It wasn't really mentioned.

7. You mean it made a plot possible...come on, again, this is nitpicking to the extreme. I don't see how that is dumb either since even though they can perhaps manipulate the 5 dimensions they won't be able to bring him to the past...that's a different matter.

Nope I don't see it. Still 9.0 with 211k votes. The audience really loved the film, it's not going to go down that much.

Agreed, although that scene didn't make much sense in retrospect, definite goosebumps in IMAX. I want this movie at home asap, the sound was a bit too loud in IMAX, it all started to melt together.

This is not true. http://ikjyotsinghkohli24.wordpress.com/2014/11/07/on-the-science-of-interstellar/

Why the hell was mann trying to kill them and steal the ship. Once at the planet all he had to do was say, oops I lied, now they have to go to the next planet with him, completely idiotic story line.

He was mentally unstable. That is all that needs to be said. 

how could they possibly even approach the event horizon of a black hole, they would have been completely crushed by the gravitational forces long before getting even close let alone try to cross the event horizon and send signals out.

The black hole was 100 million times more massive than the sun and rotating. Tidal forces are not that simple in this case. Remember, tidal forces are caused by potential differences. It is very well possible that the potential difference at the event horizon (which is a mathematical boundary, not a physical object) is stable enough to not be torn apart, especially for a rotating supermassive black-hole. Physicists even speculate that there are ultramassive black-holes with entire solar-systems located passed their inner event horizons (kerr black holes have two event horizons) with stable orbits.
