Not often do I watch a movie that makes me feel sometimes opposite emotions but after watching Interstellar, I can say that it made me cry, laugh, be confused, be inspired, be hopeful and be amazed. Interstellar is easily one of my top 10 movies. Easily. I won’t tell you much about it because honestly I can’t do it justice. It’s worth watching and taking from it what you will based on your own past experiences and knowledge. From reading some sci fi novels, much of the movie made sense to me – especially the parts about space time – but it was everything else that made my mind explode with fascination. The possibilities of mankind and of the universe, which as you’ll see in this movie, are very much tied together. Check out the trailer below and let me know what you thought of it once you’ve had a chance to watch it.
