Interstellar by Christopher Nolan

Just got back from Interstellar and all I can say is that I am blown away. Such an epic ride, a mind-blowing futuristic tale. Is this a love it or hate it movie? Maybe... The message about love, the ending, the plot holes, all the questions regarding time travel...

It is far from perfect, it is quite a mess actually and emotionally chaotic and this is what I liked the most. It's a beautiful mesmerizing experience, visually and emotionally. Hans Zimmer's music is huge with epic church organ themes that add a lot to some of the key scenes.

My favourite 2014 movie? Probably much more than that...

Dr. Brand, Cooper: We need the bravest humans to finds us a new home.
Cooper: But the nearest star is over thousand years away.
Doyle: Hence the bravery.
