Interstellar honest trailer rips apart Christopher Nolan's space movie

I love watching Honest Trailers' takedown of movies because they highlight actual problems, they're actually really funny and they have no sacred cows. They can skewer Michael Bay right next to burning down everyone's post-Dark Knight shrine to Chris Nolan. Here they are hilariously ripping up Interstellar. » 3/31/15 8:41pm 3/31/15 8:41pm

Interstellar's Original Ending Actually Made Sense—And It Wasn't Happy

The final act of Interstellar was a bit of mess, packed with feel-good mystical pseudoscience that was out of place in a sometimes glorious space opera.

The Truth Behind Interstellar's "Scientifically Accurate" Black Hole

You've probably heard that the black hole in Interstellar was a simulation of unprecedented scientific accuracy. You may also have heard that its creation led to an "amazing scientific discovery" having to do with the shape of its accretion disk, which loops over and under its dark, central shadow.

The Original Black Hole For Interstellar Was Too Confusing

One of the many reasons why Interstellar was such a wonderful movie was that it used genuine scientific equations to show what happens in the vicinity of a black hole.

The solitude of space exploration should be turned into a tablet game

There might not be anything more awesome than going to space. It's an incredible achievement and the idea of exploring the unknown is fascinating. But as this short animation called Solus by Zac Dixon for Identity Visuals shows, it can get quite lonely. Watch it, it's nearly as good as any feature. » 11/22/14 12:30am 11/22/14 12:30am

It's a film so extravagant in nature, it was projected in 70mm, a format equal to the scale of its fantastic story, and shot on IMAX 65mm. » 11/07/14 3:53pm 11/07/14 3:53pm
