Description

This movie needs no review. Being directed by Christopher Nolan, you know exactly what to expect. There are some who find him over-rated and some who absolutely love everything he does. I belong to the latter category. So if you are one of many who loved the movie, you probably have already bought this blu-ray. mounting the camera on the Ranger and not cutting to some wide angle shot of the Ranger actually flying. very visceral. There are now two planets left, Mann’s and Edmond’s. Edmond’s data is better although it has stopped transmitting. Mann is still transmitting. They only have fuel for one. Mann’s is chosen as he is still transmitting. For Brand this is heartbreaking as she is in love with Edmond and this is essentially a death sentence for him if he is still alive. Across All Dimensions and Time—A look at the concept and design of the Tesseract, which incorporated a practical set rather than a green screen. For me, having already seen it in the cinema, 'Interstellar' is an extremely impressive spectacle which (unusually for a Christopher Nolan film) provoked extreme emotion - I know I have not been the only grown-man to 'blub' as the movie reached it's climax....

Interstellar (4K UHD Review) - The Digital Bits Interstellar (4K UHD Review) - The Digital Bits

Life on Cooper's Farm (09:43) - The story of the lengths the filmmakers went to to create a corn working outside Calgary in Canada, including building a farm house for exterior and interior photography and growing 500 acres of corn. The Dust—Learn how cast and crew avoided sand blindness, and see how to create, and clean up after, a catastrophic dust storm. Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar would be impressive in the ranks of contemporary hard science fiction films, even if for no other reasons than that there are so few of them these days and that its ambition is nearly unsurpassed.The Cosmic Sounds of Interstellar (13:40) - Hans Zimmer discusses how he wrote and recorded the score for the film. Do to localized fluctuations in gravity noted by Murph and later decoded as binary and Morse code messages Cooper eventually finds the remnants of NASA and learns of the mankind’s impending extinction on Earth. Many reviewers who hate this film take this point to state how much nonsense it was that Cooper was selected for the upcoming mission after surprisingly walking in there. While this is convenient, there is more at work. The upcoming mission involves going through a worm hole leading to promising systems which HAD to have been artificially created. Large, stable worm holes do not just appear naturally. This had to have been created and NASA learned of it through gravitational field manipulations which began appearing right when they really needed to start looking for an escape from Earth. Since NASA knows some entity created this worm hole and guided them to it through gravitational field manipulations when one of the only pilots with experience shows up on their doorstep after having been guided there by the same type of phenomena you are going to assume he was sent there for a reason. NASA is headed by a group of scientists including Professor Brand played by Michael Caine. Professor Brand knows Cooper and explains that there are two plans. Plan A involves solving the physics equations allowing for theoretical manipulation of gravity. This would allow the construction of large space going habitats on Earth’s surface into which the remaining population of Humans could be transported on to another habitable world. The Ranger and the Lander (12:20) - The design and construction of the Ranger spacecraft and the Lander spacecraft with another walk-through from production designer Nathan Crowley.

Yet what makes Interstellar stand out from a film like 2001 is its script. 2001, despite some of its big ideas and breath taking visuals, is at times a cold and clinical film where the most human character is the computer HAL. Interstellar definitely has its share of striking visuals and fascinating scientific concepts (explored in much greater depth in The Science Of Interstellar by the films science consultant Kip Thorne) but that's not really what the film is about at an emotional level. The film explores humanity's place not just on this pale blue dot but out in the universe from our potential as a species to that fight or flight reflex that leads some of us to do incredible things and others to commit terrible acts of cowardice (something that makes me think that the name of Matt Damon's character is no accident). Interstellar speaks to what drives us and asks what we are capable of, telling us that (to paraphrase a line from the film's first teaser trailer) our greatest accomplishments are still waiting for us out there somewhere and that, in the words of the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas that becomes almost a refrain throughout the film, we should not go gentle into that good night and rage, rage against the dying of the light. The disc includes a great set of extras that reveal all that went into making such an ambitious film.

The not-so-distant future is dire. Our planet is dying. America is trapped in an increasingly dangerous futuristic Dust Bowl. A blight has taken our crops. One by one the world's major crop species are dying, leaving us hungry and relying on the last sustainable crop, corn. Though, it's just a matter of time before the world is out of food (though, curiously barley-based alcohol seems rather plentiful). What will we do then? Interstellar makes for one hell of an audio experience, but in staying faithful to the material it brings the same problematic dialogue issues to the home format. The conclusions that are reached can appear hokey on the surface. There's an "I've seen this somewhere else," vibe near the end. But, with Nolan's keen directorial eye, focused on the wonder of practical special effects, and a dominating performance from McConaughey, 'Interstellar' overcomes most of its faults and satisfies in the end. TARS and CASE (09:27) - A detailed look at the two intelligent mobile machines in the film, how they were designed and brought to life for the film. The gravitational 'dust lines' which Cooper decodes to reveal and direct him to the secret NASA facility were placed by him at a 'later' date. Since he only got to that later date by virtue of his subsequent NASA flight a paradox exists ie how could he leave the lines to start the process which eventually gets him to the position of leaving them ???

Celestial Landmarks—Explore how the filmmakers used practical special effects informed by real scientific equations to give the illusion of real space travel for both the actors and the audience.In the near future the Earth is suffering from a drought. The “Dust Bowl” that happened in the mid west in the 1930’s has become a worldwide problem. Crops are drying up and huge dust storms are commonplace. Farmer/Engineer Cooper (Matthew McConaughey) and his family aren’t immune to the climate changes, either. However, it so happens that they discover some sort of code that leads Cooper to the headquarters of NASA. He’s informed that they’re sending a shuttle into space to try and solve the drought on Earth. Cooper, along with a skeleton crew, head off into the bowels of space and head for a wormhole that will allow them to travel beyond our solar system. The odds of survival are slim. Will Cooper and his crew be able to navigate the dangers of space and save the Earth or are they doomed?

The Space Suits– Nothing too mind-blowing here, just a look at the space suits, how they really don’t differ too much from those used today as well as the practical fit for the actors. I first saw this film in the cinema and I've just received and watched the Digibook Blu-ray - Hurray ! The Endurance (09:24) - The design and construction of the film's main spaceship including a walk-through of the set by production designer Nathan Crowley.Shooting in Iceland: Miller's Planet/Mann's Planet (12:42) - Director Christopher Nolan likes to shoot as much for real as possible and Iceland conveniently provided the ideal locations for two of the main planets in the film. Visual/Cinematography were wonderfully handled. The film is a pleasure to watch with focus regularly where it needs to be and clear.
