Every once in a while there are movies which justifies the overpriced sodas sold in multiplexes. Interstellar is truly one such movie. This space based sci-fi adventure movie starts of on a blight (dirt storm) infested earth where food is scarce and schools are encouraging kids to take up agriculture rather than forcing them to learn Bernoulli’s equation. Isn’t that the heaven we all want to live in, except for the blights. Cooper played by Matthew McConaughey is a widowed astronaut who has taken up farming as people believe that investing in science is a waste. Soon enough (more like an hour) he learns that he has to pilot a NASA spacecraft through a wormhole in search of habitable planets in order to save human race. The scene where he tries to convince his daughter that he will come back is heart wrenching.

Top Three Actors I Just Can’t Stand For No Reason (That Aren’t Matthew McConaughey)

McHugh Reviews

I apologize for Top 3 Thursday…on Friday…moving on!

I can’t STAND Matthew McConaughey. I can’t stand his voice, I hate his attitude, he’s socially offputting, it feels like he plays the same character in every movie he plays, he had the most pretentious Oscar speech. I can’t stand the man. But honestly, I can’t call him the worst thing ever. Well, I can, and I probably will. But it’s not justifiable and I’ll admit that. My dislike towards him gets in the way of anything he does. So when I saw the trailers for Interstellar, my first problem was his voice.

That’s not the first time it’s happened. There are three specific actors who I have the same reaction towards in any movie they pop up. So in honor of Interstellar’s release to decent reviews (about 72% on RT), here’s my Top Three Actors I Just Can’t Stand For No…

100 Word Movie Review: Interstellar

Sean Fallon


Interstellar is an interesting movie. It is ambitious, gorgeous, sometimes too loud, and a little too long.

It stars Matthew McConaughey as a farmer (and former pilot) during a worldwide food shortage who is tasked with taking a team into space to find somewhere for the Earth to evacuate to. This topic, overpopulation and food shortages and the fact that we will one day need to escape, is one I find fascinating. However, this movie goes further, delving into black holes, fifth dimensional thinking, and time displacement to make something thought-provoking and occasionally beautiful, while also being exciting and entertaining.

TNU Box Office Preview: McConaughey in space!

The Nerds Uncanny

After months of mostly MEH movies, the holiday movie season kicks off this weekend with Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar” and Disney Animation’s “Big Hero 6.” This should be a ab epic sci-fi showdown, as both movies seem poised to open big.


After a brief two-day run in 249 theaters, “Interstellar” explodes into 3,500 locations on Friday. “Interstellar” will also be playing in 370 IMAX theaters domestically, which is the biggest ever IMAX release.

The sci-fi adventure finds Matthew McConaughey leading a team of NASA explorers (including Anne Hathaway) across the universe in search of a new home for mankind. “Interstellar” also stars Jessica Chastain, and Michael Caine, and a bunch of other big name people.

However, the movie’s main selling point has to be director Christopher Nolan. The man who saved Batman movies is a fanboy favorite, and always delivers excellent movies. Studios like him too as Nolan’s last three movies…
