reviewing INTERSTELLAR at Daily Grail

I went to the Melbourne premiere of INTERSTELLAR on Thursday night and wrote it up for Daily Grail – my first post over there, more of which are sure to come.

I have been looking forward to this film all year and have pretty much flat-out squeed over every new trailer or teaser as they were released, over at The Extropian Abyssal. The two quotes in particular – “This world’s a treasure that’s been telling us to leave for a while now” and “Mankind was born on earth. It was never meant to die here.” – are basically Dark Extropian Mantras.

So I had very high expectations. This is just a sample of my thoughts after finally viewing it:

this is the most culturally relevant film Christopher Nolan has yet directed…. As a response to the incredibly popular Gravity, Interstellar loudly proclaims LIFE IN SPACE IS POSSIBLE! That instead of becoming naught but dust on the wind, we can be instruments to populate a living universe. Placed with the recent Guardians of the Galaxy and the upcoming film from the Wachowskis, Jupiter Ascending, it’s hopeful to think we’re entering a new golden age of the space opera. That humanity is summoning its courage and looking to stars again.
