For the last week, I’ve heard critics and movie goers compare Interstellar with the 2010 fantasy/thriller Inception which starred Leonardo Decaprio.  Thankfully, that wasn’t my experience. 

Interstellar, which stars Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway, is about a team of explorers who undertake the most important mission in human history; traveling beyond this galaxy to discover whether mankind has a future among the stars.

Yes, there is a twist, (a good one at that) and parts of the story are “out there”.  But isn’t that why you go to a Sci-Fi movie?  It’s not supposed to be realistic. Throw in some awesome special effects and the 3 hour movie feels more like 3 minutes.  If you liked 2001 Space Odyssey, you will love Interstellar.   I give it two large bags of popcorn!  Watch the trailer.
