“Interstellar” watch

5536_interstellar-posterI just saw Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar last night. I’d like to watch it again before writing a full review because there is a lot to absorb. In short, I enjoyed it quite a bit. It doesn’t replace Contact as my favorite hard science fiction film, but I have a lot of respect for what the movie does. It’s probably the first and only time Einstein’s theory of relativity has been central to the plot of a major Hollywood movie. Even more impressive, Interstellar has made a lot of money ($635 million as of late December 2014). Hollywood take note: smart science fiction sells.

About Dom

I study constitutional politics in Southeast Asia and I occasionally work as a consultant for rule of law projects. I enjoy science fiction and fantasy stories, both as an escape and as a way to better understand our world. One day, I hope to write a book about politics in genre literature.
