Last year we had Gravity, a chamber music concert compared to this year's grand oratorio, Interstellar. As we all know, our planet is going to seed, o...
Ladies and gentlemen. It is my opinion, in every fiber of my being, that I have just witnessed not just the best film of this century thus far, but one of the best to have hit the eyes, imaginations, and consciousness of audiences worldwide.
The script, by director/writer Christopher Nolan and his brother, writer Jonathan Nolan, doesn't let the film get off the ground, literally, for 50 minutes. It meticulously, laboriously sets up the backstory and the reason why a trip to outer space is a do-or-die mission.
Just when we thought we could wait no longer, director Christopher Nolan has supplied the world with another prolonged, at times nearly bewildering sci-fi adventure that will bear repeated viewings by viewers who are unemployed and have little else to do.

Like its gritty heroes, the show is mesmerizing, good-hearted, occasionally brilliant -- and occasionally flawed.
In The McConaissance, McConaughey has become not an anti-hero, but an anti-matinee idol.
It takes a lot of courage to make a statement about current society, especially when the criticism could be equated to biting the hand that feeds you.
If I'm right, then Nic Pizzolatto took a serious -- and brilliant -- artistic gamble in the narrative arc of his screenplay, a wager calculated on a deep dark propensity in the American psyche. And, if I'm right, like Ruston Cohle, I'll "close the loop" on that speculation when it's over.
"He [God] has shown me that it is a scientific fact that gratitude reciprocates," said best actor winner Matthew McConaughey in his recent Oscar speec...
Whether we make billions or we make our living by begging, someone helps us get along, someone buys what we sell, someone throws their change in our bucket. Each of us is indebted to someone, everyday.
The day after, all anyone could talk about was how we was "robbed." There's only one problem with this: It's absolutely not true.
