    It blew my mind and I walked around in a daze for a whole day.

    I liked science fiction because it was fiction based on the facts of science. But once science fiction ceased to be based on the facts of science, I lost interest.

    And the simple fact is that homo sapiens is never going to travel to the stars or other galaxies.

    But travel to the stars or galaxies has taken the place of going to Heaven.

    So Science Fiction has become Science Fantasy.

    So Science Fiction is now as much a fantasy as mbti.

    Of course I saw the movie, I see all the movies.

    And as I have a different perspective then you accuse me of not seeing the movie.

    I notice I also have a different perspective on mbti, and as a result I am banned, my posts are put in the graveyard, and I am relentlessly accused of being off topic.

    It is only in a cult that different perspectives are negatively targetted.

    The intelligent and democratic welcome different perspectives.

    Oh good! have you seen The Last House on the Left? or Hang 'Em High? Or The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes?

    No, it's because you offered not even a single detail in your post that suggested that you ever saw the movie, and instead you're talking about mbti and cults again. It was a serious question, I wanted to know.

    You seriously went there?

    If you want to be in a thread that is reviewing a movie, please talk about the movie. Thanks.

    Personally I didn't mind it at all -- it was delivered well by Anne Hathaway in that I-know-I'm-sounding-stupid-but-this-feeling-is-overwhelming-right-now way. I don't think it would have worked otherwise. But I think it could have included some 'scientific evidence' of some sort on Hathaway's part. If she's a scientist she would most likely try to quote some documented 'unexplainable' phenomena that might be caused by 'love'. I think in preparation of going through a wormhole to search for her boyfriend who might be dead she would have already spent quite a bit of time pondering the power of love, so her speech could have come through as a slightly more 'complete' argument (with 'evidence' that she had already used to convince herself, etc.) But maybe I'm just nitpicking here.

    The first act was rather clumsy, some parts were contrived, other parts were poorly explained, the dialogue was rather bad at times, I disliked the pretentious pontificating, the endless exposition was irritating, the editing could have been tighter in places, and whole script basically needed a couple more drafts...

    ..but...

    I really loved it nonetheless. I don't think I've ever enjoyed a film that flawed, that much. I found it thrilling, moving and highly engaging. I was so wrapped up in it, after that awkward first act the time just flew by for me. I am a bit of an astrophysics lover so I do enjoy it when a movie gets romantic about the weird and wonderful things about space travel, the universe, and the theory of relativity.

    Nolan is known for his shitty sound mixes. It's a common complaint. In fact, I just read an article on the subject the other day.

    Just watched it.

    No idea why things were happening, for what reason and how they actually solved it. Lots of "huh". But whatever, I enjoyed it anyways



    SO MANY QUESTIONS!

    @Jennifer yes I saw it coming as well. Haha

    Yeah I'd really love to see a diagram of how the black hole, tesseract, and wormhole connect.
    How did he manage to Luke Skywalker it into the tesseract door after crossing the event horizon, considering just how much black hole area there was? That was some pin-point accuracy by whoever put it there. Kind of makes you wonder why they thought Saturn would be a good spot for the worm hole rather than, say, behind the moon. Also I thought getting that close to a black hole would rip you apart? Maybe he wasn't really that close to it after all.

    I thought it was a bland, poorly edited, emotionally trite bunch of bull hockey. That's $12 I will never get back.
