Sci-fi feature written and directed by Christopher Nolan, director of 'The Dark Knight' trilogy. On a resource-depleted Earth in the near future, the discovery of a wormhole which can transport users through time and space unites scientists and explorers in the most important mission in human history. Among the potential travellers is a widowed engineer (Matthew McConaughey) who must decide whether to remain with his two children or to test the limits of human space travel, to see if there is a future for humanity out among the stars or whether the end of the Earth spells the end for humanity. Academy Award-winner Hans Zimmer returns to partner Nolan and score the film. The cast members include Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine and Anne Hathaway. The film was nominated for five Academy Awards and won for Best Visual Effects.Extra Content The Science of Interstellar Plotting An Interstellar Journey Life On Cooper's Farm The Dust Tars and Case The Cosmic Sounds Of Interstellar The Space Suits The Endurance Shooting In Iceland: Miller's Planet/Mann's Planet The Ranger And The Lander Miniatures In Space The Simulation Of Zero Celestial Landmark Across All Dimensions And Time Final Thoughts Trailer 1 - Lee Trailer 2 - Wonder Trailer 3 - Memories Trailer 4 - Mankind

Casting has been spot on and although a minor gripe, Matthew McConaughey's low, breathy voice can be hard to make out at times. But he's at home here in the role of Cooper. Likewise Anne Hathaway et co. Including the young cast members all excel in their roles. Matt Damon brings an amazing quality to the hopeless and frayed Doctor Mann.
For me Hans Zimmer's score, though, is the real star of the piece. The use of a church organ for some of the scenes was inspired and works so well to capture the immensity of the subject matter.
Nolan's ambiguous Tesseract scene may have many scratching their heads but at the end of the day the director is leaving this for us the viewer to interpret as we see fit.
Some more technically minded watchers will complain about the transition from 65mm(?) film to IMAX and back again but frankly I don't understand and at no point has it detracted from my experience of the film.
As well as the 4K UHD disc, which is just a pure joy to watch, is a Blu-Ray disc of the film and a third disc (also Blu-ray) with the special features. This has only added to my appreciation for the film, the lengths to which the crew of Interstellar went to to create it. The disc is chock full of features with conception of the story with Jonathan and Christopher Nolan, creating the score with Hans Zimmer, loads and loads and LOADS of stuff regarding effects, filming and the science backing up the film. Also included is a piece on Interstellar space and mankind's place in the universe and our potential for reaching other worlds, narrated by McConaughey. Christopher Nolan is no stranger in these features and he and several cast and crew discuss the undertaking of producing and directing the film.
One letdown (for me) has been the overall sound, although amazing in clarity and tone, which has been taken from the way it was played in theatres, meaning the music somewhat overwhelms while the actor's voices are more subdued. Fine if you live out in the middle of nowhere with no neighbours and want to experience it this way. But I found the volume on the remote control was getting a lot of use as I alternated between turning down the music and turning up the dialogue and back again.
The acting is very good, with McConaughey putting in one of his finest performances; ably supported by Chastain, Anne Hathaway and Micheal Caine. Hans Zimmer composes one of his finest scores, unusually centered around the organ. The scene in which Cooper leaves the farm is accompanied by one of Zimmer's finest ever compositions. On the second disc, there are almost three hours of extras detailing its production. This Blu-Ray release is well worth having in any film fan's collection.
In the future, the world has changed for the worse; the world needs farmers as food shortages dominate due to dust storms as in the 1930s. N.A.S.A has been discredited, but in secretly developing methods to use a black hole as access to interstellar flight to investigate new worlds for colonisation.
This film's strengths is the realistic and authentic feeling it gives to its exploration of the story by using real equations in computers to generate images of black holes and their effects in spacetime. The scope is majestic as the crew land on different planets and discovers the positives and negatives of there possible colonisation. This film is beautifully shot with atmospheric music and storytelling. I saw this at its cinematic theatrical release and i was bored, but not this time at home. It's a marvellous movie and I really rate this second time around.
Love makes you fly it can break your wings
Love changes, changes everything
Love makes the rules from fools to kings
As awesome synth pop group 'Climie Fisher' sang in their '88 hit song. And so it goes with Christopher Nolans 'Interstellar', a film about 'love making the rules', from facts based physics to pretentious sci fi future fantasy, love just changes everything, especially logic.
Because you see the more the producers keep trying to prove that the film is based as much as it could on 'space facts', the more you watch it, the less it seems so. A bit like the so - called 'real' '69 moon landings. More questions than answers are given.
So what is it Nolans? A sincere future dystopian sci fi, dealing with the existential dread of the end of the human race, or a public service film just re-enforcing peoples NASA's space fantasies? I mean, ya just gotta justify $50 mill a day in funding from the American tax payer to shove a 'robot' Mars, all that green screen technology don't just pay for its self ya know.
And like 2001 a space odessy ( and possible any film that propagates the NASA 'mythos') the photo realistic CG technology used in this film is no doubt on lone from them. In the case of 2001, a space odessy, it is rumoured that Kubrick helped photograph and setup the 'moon landing' shots using NASA cameras and sets, then borrowed them to film his genre 'masterpiece' in return for the favour.
'If you believed they put a man on the moon, man on the moon
If you believe there's nothing up his sleeve, then nothing is cool'
Sang awesome alternative indie, turned pop sell out sensations REM on their '92 hit single.
The general public love to be suckered in and sucker punched. Yeah, steel washing machines can survive a 150,000 mile journey through uncharted space AND send live video images from the moon in '69 AND return 'safely'. Were the Nolans taking the proverbial urine, with TARS, a ghastly walking, talking 70's reflective wardrobe/executive toy? It comes with witty repartee, just to distract you from the big load of clacking steel balls this movie is.
Maybe this is 'satire', I dunno.
Anyhow, nothing re-enforces the NASA fantasy like choppy IMAX images, depicting the realistic yet dumb (like 007 Moonraker from inside a 'base', wtf?) take off of the 'space shuttle' only for a few scenes later launching it self, without assistance, off a gravity ridden earth like planet, were time slows down equal to 7hrs per hour. Kinda like watching this film.
I am sorry there was 'meaning' and depth to this , this err, 3hr infomercial for NASA? I kinda tuned out when one of them says 'love transcends space, so you (cooper) can end up in a VR book case and whine a lot to people in another dimension and send them cryptic messages to wrap up the convoluted plot line' Well I am sure she said that. No?
Matt Damon looks like his practising for his next NASA propaganda film 'Potatoes on Mars'. Say it like the muppets sang it for 'PIGGSSS - IN - SPAYYCEE'. That was fun.
Boring, this film is....humm but 73% of 9138 reviews tend to disagree. Too much space food in their diet, like soy substitute and pot noodles methinks.
An apocalyptic start leading full circle to a hopeful finish. There are a lot of subtle twists that gradually reveal themselves as the film progresses and tie up well at the end. A superb watch from take-off to touch-down.

El estuche viene con funda de cartón como se muestra en la imagen.
Mejor esta edición que la que viene sin extras pero con copias en otros formatos, creo yo.
The 5* reviews are so misleading with regards to movies & 4k picture quality, maybe next time I will stick to blu-ray.
It's of reference quality, the hdr on this is fantastic.
I've been so disappointed in many 4k blu ray films, but this is how 4k can look like if it's done correctly.
Shame about no atmos but the soundtrack is amazing anyway and will have the foundations shaking at times.
As for the film itself, I love the idea and although it's a head scratcher it lives in the memory. 5/5
