It's a non-existent conspiracy that crazy right-wing Americans think exists.

I don't believe in conspiracy theories. I know they're all part of a secret plan made by the government to make us believe in conspiracies.

that's quite early, and in here snow is relatively rare imo, and there are years without snow too, however, sometimes when it does snow it's a lot. Anyways I just wish I had snow here too...

Just got back from seeing Interstellar. I won't spoil anything significant, but here's what I have to say about it:

Stop reading and go see it.

Are you still reading anyway? Okay, so the film is pretty lengthy at a hair under 3 hours, but unlike most ~3hr films, it kept me (and most of the rest of the audience as far as I can tell) engaged throughout. I only looked at my watch once, compared to like, every 5 minutes in the Hobbit. (Sorry Peter Jackson, loved LOTR, but your Hobbit series is terrible. Oh wait, I'm talking about Interstellar.)

Common complaint, which I share: Whoever their soundmixer was ought to be fired. The soundtrack is way too loud, sometimes even making it a struggle to understand dialog. Aside from the decibels, the soundtrack is good though. A repetitive ear-worm, but one that carries a lot of power and emotion, and I never got tired of hearing it. The sound FX are nice as well, and I love their choice of NOT using it in vacuo. They not only properly render the vacuum of space as non sound-transmitting, but they even use it to great effect.

Matthew McConaughey was outstanding in his role and totally carried the film. Other actors/actresses were good too, except Matt Damon whom I thought was a little narmy. Some cheesy dialog, mostly when explaining science (I feel that the Nolan brothers are consistently bad at non-intrusively explaining science or the rules by which their films work through delivered lines. Their delivery always breaks my suspension of disbelief.) And, speaking of the science, Midtskogen mentioned his thoughts on the premise a while back. He was right -- it is ridiculous and I could go on about it for pages. Many other aspects of the film are totally implausible as well (e.g. a planet with layers of frozen clouds that are like glaciers you can land and walk on? Wat?)

On the other hand, some aspects of the science were wonderful. I loved the wormhole/black hole physics (even though they are not entirely perfect), and the visuals of them are worth the admission price alone. Also a good use of orbital mechanics and relativity, despite stretching them a bit. I won't go into details about the relativity -- you should just see it for yourself.

And the best thing, the thing that surprised me most: the story! It has flaws, but was nevertheless one of the most moving things I've seen in a pretty long while. I want to spoil the final act. I want to spoil it soooo hard.

Go see this film.
