Interstellar


I had to let it sink in for 24 hours. During the film itself I was on the edge of my seat, clenching my fists into it, I laughed, I was touched, never indifferent but sometimes confused, maybe. So the final judgement had to wait.

After a good night's sleep and some thinking I feel comfortable in saying Interstellar met my pretty big expectations. I am sure the reception will be somewhat mixed and controversial, because the movie is pretty demanding of its audience and the solution may not be for everyone. I liked it just the way it was, but I can easily suspend my disbelief, even with films based on actual Science.

Worth noting is that Matthew McConaughey and especially Jessica Chastain are outstanding once again. Comparisons to 2001, Gravity, Close Encounters of the Third Kind and The Right Stuff have been made, they are all right and still can't exactly grasp what's going on here.

Edge of Tomorrow


Tom Cruise has been known to fight aliens before, but while his latest effort mimics the best of the genre (Aliens, The Matrix ) while adding aspects of history (the Normandy from Saving Private Ryan) and glimpses of comedy (Groundhog Day), this movie ultimately feels pretty damn fresh.

Time loop films can easily get repetitive, but director Doug Liman is too smart to give us the same scenes over and over. They all serve a purpose ...
