Interstellar Time

Just returned from viewing the new Christopher Nolan directed film "Interstellar". This movie explores some interesting "physics" concepts such as "worm holes and black holes" and the "Theory of Relativity" as it relates to the concepts of space and time along with gravity and the future of mankind if planet Earth becomes uninhabitable .Relative time between Earth time and time in space and other planets in other galaxies was explored.  Definitely a "thought provoking" movie along with exploring the human urges of "self preservation versus human species continuation"and what decisions people may make if confronted with the choice of these two paths.

Christopher Nolan also directed  "The Dark Knight Rises" and "Memento" as well as the mind provoking movie "Inception" where present reality was contrasted the dream states and "dreaming within a dream" where in this movie as well time passed at different rates.

So, if you like a movie that makes you think a bit then you might enjoy this film. If you are looking for a movie for laughs or car chases then you will find this film somewhat disappointing.
