I read the books first. This was also right after the original SW trilogy, Alien & Blade Runner, heralding a new golden age of special effects. David Lynch was coming off his triumph with Elephant Man. So many of us were hoping for great things, maybe the first of a long series adapting all the books.

It ended up not living up to expectations. But I've come around to it now. It is its own thing, and it works in its own way. Lynch himself isn't at peace with it, feeling the project was compromised from the start. So yeah, I do wish it had been made with an adulterated Lynchian vision, which would have been something else.

This is where so many Kubrick critics go terribly horribly wrong. Arthur C Clarke was a mercenary Author and mostly a boring nobody Kubrick hired to pen a book he ultimately rejected. I bet you think that hack Stephen King is good too.

interstellar obviously had a lot of problems. There was some cool sci-fi stuff, but most of it was sci-fi porn. There were problems with the story and characters which felt super obvious when I saw it.

Even if it was a love letter to 2001, it just wasn't a good film imo

>>64542869
There's no point. You wouldn't ask that question unless you were trying to say that it just comes down to taste whether Interstellar was good or not, which could be true. To my taste, certain things about it felt campy and certain things felt "obvious," whether they be setting, or plot points, or character arcs, or whatever.

Its original points were overshadowed by a lot of poor choices and poor writing. Most of the time I just like to say if a movie is "solid" or not, and Interstellar definitely didn't feel solid to me. If you think people who disagree with you just have poor taste then I can't argue anyway

What's not "solid" about interstellar?
What poor choices are you referring to?
you're also talking a lot about your feelings Tbh, difficult in this case to avoid the whole taste argument

That's the thing when talking movies, when i don't like a movie for exemple sw7 recently i can say exactly why and name it and explain everything why this or that was stupid or why its not original etc. I can explain why.
When I ask you or other people about it, they're just like "oh its bad acting" "oh its not solid enough" "oh it has plot holes/bad writtting in it (but they never explain WHICH plot hole, what bad writting, and why is it a bad writting)

Again, just curious, maybe if you're right i'll just say "ok that was a smart critic of it, interesting point were made"

>What poor choices are you referring to?

I'll list a few which turned me off from the start, but I saw the movie last in theaters, so some of these will only be approximately what was actually in the movie. The point is, the things that I list are cliches which were close enough to what actually happened in the movie to turn me off by a ton.

>Earth is arid and dying cliche
>this scene which i tried to describe but thankfully is on youtube (entire thing is riddled with cliches):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KnlrK14OZn0
>main character follows a very unlikely hunch, abandoning his family, to miraculously find a nasa base or whatever
>Anne Hathaway's love speech
>the ending where they go inside a black hole (a cool idea but the execution is campy as fuck)
>seeing his daughter as an old lady scene

So much of this movie felt predictable and campy, and this is just listing the things which still annoy me a year later, much less all of the minor stuff which I've forgotten. Predictable alone is completely fine, but when they made it campy in parts it just ruined the movie for me

>>64542532
>I asked this question in this thread, got no answers, they cant even say why

The fact you don't agree with them doesn't mean people can't explain to you why Interstellar isn't as good as 2001. I'll do my best either way: 2001 was a cultural phenomenon that changed the history of cinema, introducing unrepresented themes and visuals in the medium that, to this day, are still impressive. Interstellar tried to follow its footsteps, and while it might have succeeded in displaying top-notch visuals and some interesting concepts, the overall movie suffers from a severe case of terminal Hollywoodness.

Ironically, Interstellar's greatest virtue is also its greatest self-conflicting issue: the desperate attempt to make everything as scientific accurate as possible. If you've seen the FlickSins video on it then you know what people talk about when saying wormholes and the string theory were brilliantly represented, there was a lot of effort in making it possibly the most astronomically accurate movie in history. That is, however, completely thrown to waste when your entire premise is defeated by pulling out love as an ex-machina element. You can't present a complex, credible scientific world and then simply say "fuck all" by solving everything through the magic power of love. That is pure bullshit, even if you assume that scientism doesn't exclude a metaphysical dimension to our conscience there is still a long stretch to using love as a deterrent to complicated time-space problems. It contradicts everything the movie worked towards establishing, and that is beyond frustrating.

(1/2)

>>64541772
Because 2001 doesn't solve it's premice with a paradox and throws all else aside by saying "love transcends all dimensions".

>>64543504
(2/2)

But an even more complicated issue arises from its scientific accuracy. Even if you ignore the baffling and pointless inclusion of love in the equation, there is a difference between exposing science and actually generating scientific thought. Interstellar explains in detail all these complicated physical theories, and it is indeed fascinating to see them at work on the big screen, but in the end, what do you take from it? Perhaps a little more knowledge on the field, assuming you never watched 15 minutes of any documentary about astronomy, but is acquiring factual knowledge about something a good condition for art? Personally, I prefer a film that actually makes me think about scientific matters instead of just displaying science. I had a Contemporary Philosophy lecture last semester, and in literally every class we talked about the problems of consciousness, singularity and artificial intelligence, 2001 was used by our teacher as the ideal example. The underlying questions the movie presents are great, you actually wonder about the possibility of intelligent machines and all the ethical implications it might have.

For modern standards, in a world of flicks where sequels are shilled out by the minute and experimental cinema is inconceivable, an arthouse film like like 2001 certainly wouldn't exist. It's not that we can blame modern studios for wanting money, if they are going to be financing a movie it's pretty obvious they want the best financial return possible, but we can definitely blame them for the lack of audacity in accepting new and ingenious ideas for fearing a weaker box office performance in comparison to Capeshit VII or Horror Franchise XII. The fact that making an art film is now seen as "indie" and "alternative" is a really, really sad thing in modern cinema.

The first act where it's still a murder noir mystery with some scifi elements in it was great. But when it got to the end with it's DBZ tier fighting, it's just made it really bad. The fights choreography is really awful. The special effects are also awful. The fact that Ebert compared it with 2001 is baffling.

Top tier sets and atmosphere, though.

By the way, if you think any of what I said is bullshit you should really watch that youtube clip again. It's one of the most painfully obvious and boring attempts at characterization and world-building ever. Seriously.

It's way to paint the current government as corrupt and/or bad is to demonize things which modern Americans love: space landings and machines. They even call the main character's kid bad because she believes in the moon landings.

It's way to show the main character as smart, loving, and strong is to show him defending his daughter and dead wife: "If we had any of those useless MRIs left (you awful person, teacher, and arm of the government) then my wife would've survived her disease."
"My wife was always the calmer one."

Here is the response it is supposed to ellicit in any viewer: "Wow those government types sure are bad they dislike machines. Ha! What idiots." and "Wow that main character sure is a good guy. Here he is not only defending his daughter and dead wife but also showing restraint in his anger!"

This scene is a perfect example of that old writing idea that you should "show, not tell." This scene tells you exactly how to feel about the characters and world, and it shows you next to nothing about how the world and characters work. That makes it feel campy and boring. This is what I mean when I say that the writing of Interstellar is poor, and I hope it makes sense.

I found the ending a bit strange too, with the book shelf thing.
However he was into a black hole, that we know nothing about. And they say it was intentionally "put" there.
Maybe they tried to answer the question of what's behing a black hole.

>>64543548
2001 was about intelligent machines and how they can fuck us up.
interstellar did the same thing but with human emotions, vulnerabilities to loneliness, family members becoming a weakness etc
it was pretty close, that was really ok and legit in interstellar.

i agree on the current state of hollywood and capeshits. But it's just one more reason to praise interstellar's existence dont you think?

Painfully obvious characterization and world-building is painfully obvious, basically. Almost the entire movie had that same level of story-telling. If you liked it, then okay, but personally, I've seen that same level of poor storytelling in hundreds of movies and it gets really old after a while. Maybe it really does just come down to taste

I completely agree, this scene was 100% world building and characterization.
But you're attacking it for what it is, not how it is made or the utility of it. (it wasn't poorly made, it just exist)
Jokes on you, turns out i actually like world building and characterization, probably also why i open up my computer to watch a film in the first place, too.

Oblivion often gets glossed over as a clean and mainstream movie, I'm convinced there is more there if we were look into it's symbolism. It hits all the great themes, basically draws from all the major sci-fi films like Moon, AI, terminator as side plots, totally bitching out the direction of technology while looking pristinely techno-glorious and finally it lands on:

As far as visuals go, modern sci-fi movies look absolutely fantastic, but majority of them fall short due to writing. To justify the production costs they need to attract wider audience, and you end up with all these dumbed down crappy movies. As much as I want to blame the creators, it's more of a problem how stupid the average person is. I'll stick to literature to get my dose of thought provoking sci-fi material.

This is really only a single element of the film. The thread which binds the segments of the movie together is rather the monoliths, manifest destiny, a Lacanian encounter with a reflection, and the realization of being observed.

Not to say that Hal isn't a really significant part of this equation, but I don't think you can boil the film down to just that.

They dont look as fantastic when they dip the film tapes in blue/seagreen filters and call it a day.

>>
>>64542532
>>64542432
So why Interstellar and 2001 aren't the same movie even though there are similarities?

Let's put it this way. You make a movie about astronauts in space, largely based on hard scientific ideas about what future spaceflight would be like.

How would you do that *without* some parts of the movie resemble 2001: A Space Odyssey?

You might as well argue Gravity was a "love letter" to 2001 because both of them featured astronauts, zero gravity scenes and space stations.

I acknowledge that much of what I've seen from Pasolini, Tarkovsky, Kurosawa, Truffaut, etc is probably better on an objective level of artistry, emotion, etc but Robocop is a film I'll literally never get bored of. It's perfect in terms of achieving everything it sets out to and feels like it was made just for me.

Nice interpretation, especially since the creature itself was expressly intended to suggest homosexual rape.

Alien is my favorite film, and I fancy myself an expert.

I've always interpreted the bottom-element in the poster as being suggestive of an egg-carton, suggesting in a non-literal way (and not corresponding to the film itself) the egg-nest that Kane discovers. Since I'm on the subject, it's worth mentioning that the egg in this poster doesn't open like the one in the film; OTOH both in the trailer (below), the poster, and the film itself, the texture of the eggs is suggestive of the planet itself, which in one sense (among others) is really where all the trouble starts.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LjLamj-b0I8

That said, I'm embarrassed that I don't know off the top of my head who exactly made the poster and trailer, but the style of both advertising media seem to be expressly linked by a more "literal" egg, cracking. Both are suggestive of the film itself, but not literal "stills" of anything from the picture, AFAIK.

Two other things while I'm on a favorite subject: the laser lights in the egg chamber were loaned to the filmmakers by The Who, who were doing something else nearby IIRC. Furthermore, one of Weaver's next big "sci-fi" roles would be Ghostbusters, and early in that film, she would again have trouble with "egg cartons".

Adding to this (without checking just yet), I have the vague idea that Giger was not directly involved with that creative process, but rather that the film was mostly in the can and another design team put the poster/trailer/ad media together.

Interstellar was a piece of diarrhea. 2001 was the greatest film mankind has ever created.

Not to defend Interstellar which I thought was decent but not great, but contrary to what you might have read on shitty propagandistic sites like rationalwiki or been told y shitty pop-"scientists" like Bill Nye and the like, peer review has nothing to do with the scientific method.

It's solely a bureaucratic matter.

I liked this, kinda pushing it as sci-fi but well crafted and I liked the slow pacing and disorientating vibe.

On another note how is Everything & Everything & Everything (and how do I find it on a torrent site lol)? Hope Shane Carruth keeps on doing these type of movies. They're refreshing.

Pandorum is fucking great

OK. Maybe not "official" peer review, but a theoretical physicist is going to compare notes & have equations reviewed by his/her colleagues, assistants, etc. If the whole thing was a sham, people are going to know about it. Yes, Mann knew about it. So it would have been a sizable conspiracy. Yet Murph wasn't in on it? It all feels wrong.

Pandorum had shades of greatness like Event Horizon but I think the veneer is too thin. The first ten minutes will always be gold, though.

Complete shit. Not even sci-fi.

well i didn't see Gravity yet but if it follows the same characteristics and development then yes it will be a love letter to 2001 too.
