Some interesting reading on possible black hole nature.

Please lookup Schwarzschild wormholes, you will get crushed to a singularity. However I covered this in my post there are other possibilities, but they have to have very special specific things they would need in order to exist. Deep Space 9 at least tried to address this by saying their wormhole was artificially created, most don't even do this. As I indicated it's not a huge problem for me just a pet peeve and the post I was replying to indicated a more scientific bent for the movie and then mentioned wormholes which are, like all forms of FTL travel, yet to be shown to exist (though the same could until quite recently be said of the Higgs-Boson particle).

In that case, you'll be gratified to hear that the wormhole in Interstellar is also believed by the scientists in the film to be artificial.

Just in case you missed it, that was the fiction part of this scifi movie.

Trying to assemble your own copy of the original, you are!

I still say they should have said "collect them all" as a truly geeky joke.

I revisited to play around with DSU/Neural:X and ended up watching the whole movie from start to finish. Second screening for me and I enjoyed it quite a bit more than the first time. Having a daughter now made me very emotional in regards to the Murph-Coop relationship, especially towards the end. I rarely get emotional during movies but this one was gut renching.

Picture and sounds are great, bass is steady but not a cheez fest and overly done. Powerful sound, fire it up!

If you have only seen the movie once, I suggest a revisit. Nolan and Zimmer are probably my favorites and at their prime with Interstellar. Quite an experience!

It will be available on 4K in less than 3 weeks!

When asked what my favorite movie was I never had an answer, now I do. Interstellar is my number one favorite movie. My very first time seeing this was in 70mm IMAX. I sat in silence for a couple minutes when the credits rolled, I was stunned at what I saw.

The only problem with this movie? It makes it very obvious your speakers and screen are not big enough!!

Such things are NEVER too big! The sound is so powerful, thick and rich!

Interstellar will be in my UHD collection (along with all Nolan's films) once I jump to 4K.

I thought the sound was inconsistent and there were hardly any ULF moments although the bass pressure can be felt quite strong.

Indeed the graph shows a rolloff at around 30Hz. What do you mean by inconsistent? I may have missed someting...

I could not agree more! I have a son, no daughters yet, and this one tore me apart as well. Absolutely great film and in my top 3 of all time. The time element captured by Nolan hit me hard and the music throughout put it over the top. Makes me want to watch it again right now.

As jfwilliams1 points out, this review was from the original Blu-ray release. The upcoming Ultra HD release hasn't been forwarded for review yet. I am planning on covering it and will do so upon receipt.

Just as a heads up, Best Buy now has the Christopher Nolan collection 4K up for preorder. Includes this, the Dark Knight trilogy, Inception, Dunkirk, and The Prestige.

I know Amazon's had their preorder up for a while, but I try to refrain from buying from them since they have screwed up my order more than enough times.

Best buy is still in business?

I've only had an issue with Amazon once in many many years and they made it right super quick. If it's not available on Amazon, I don't buy it.

This film gutted me at times because of this and I think a lot of that had to do with being a father. A lot of people and friends that I have who don't have kids seemed to have a completely different reaction and found it all too touchy feely and it didn't play well to them. I think this is the type of film and story that will resonate a lot more with some people than others, as do many films that focus on issues that parents relate to more than non-parents. Not that I think you HAVE to be a parent to enjoy this film, certainly not the case, but that it may play a lot different for those who can relate more to the family dynamic than those that may not.

My wife feels the same way about Gravity and Bullocks talks about her daughter. That resonated a lot with my wife but I see others who chastise the movie because of it.
Three daughters here, too. Man, this hit home with me.
