Speaking of Hollywood…

At one point on my way to the theater to catch Interstellar last weekend—perhaps the second time in a year the missus and I actually paid to see a film—I wondered why we don’t do this more often. I mean, all things considered, a movie is still a pretty cheap date. And then I remembered. We had to sit through nearly 30 minutes of stupid ads and previews before the film eventually started. Thirty freakin’ minutes. #$@&%*! AMC.

But back to Interstellar. Yes, it’s ambitious. Yes, Nolan occasionally overreaches. And yes, it verges on the melodramatic from time to time. But damn, what an epic piece of filmmaking: beautifully shot, intelligently written, and downright exhausting. Go see it if you haven’t already. And spend the extra couple of bucks for the IMAX experience.

Just don’t show up until half an hour after the posted show time.
