However I guarantee most user reviews will be 9/10 or 10/10 most of the time (except from the people who like Transformers and Adam Sandler movies). This is because there are definitely some flaws (the script can be weak and cheesy, and some characters are just plot devices) and people tend to try to sound smart by pointing out those flaws, trying to put too much importance on them. Also everyone has their own taste in movies, and you have to know what each critic is like. If you agree with that guy 99% of the time, you might not like this movie. I have no idea who that is, or what his tastes in movies are however. That's why I like threads like this.. I have an idea of the types of movies people like, and know how much weight to put in their opinions. (for instance I can guarantee StylinRed will HATE this movie because I liked it so much )

In my opinion, there are movies where the characters are the highlight (most PT Anderson and QT movies) and there are movies where the plot is the highlight (this movie, Gravity, most sci-fi movies actually). Just like I mentioned after watching Fury last week, the plot was weak but the characters were interesting, so I enjoyed it overall. In this movie most of the characters are weak (but the mains are good enough, and Mathew M was fantastic) and the plot, action, intensity, and visual effects were mind blowing for me.

Overall if you're a sci-fi or science fan, it's an absolute must-see. Especially if you enjoy theoretical physics and astronomy.

I just can't get it out of my head, and I'll probably go see it again on IMAX next week.
I was so choked to find out the differences between IMAX and 70mm IMAX. I just assumed that IMAX was IMAX.

I'm going to catch it in theatres this weekend, and if it's worthy of the drive I'm going to head down to Seattle to watch it in 70mm IMAX to soak it all in. From the reviews I've read, it's really a different experience when you watch it in IMAX and expecially 70mm IMAX.

Same here, I'd have to go to Dong Guan to see it in 15/70mm... As much as I love the movie I don't think it's worth it, as tempting as it is. They might have even edited the movie, and I don't want to take the risk.

Also it's possible that they'd be showing the digital version anyway, and it would be difficult to get that information

For anyone interested, here's where I was awared on the different formats (very simplistic, but works):

https://interstellar.withgoogle.com/ways-to-see

Thankfully, Seattle isn't too far away (especially with a NEXUS pass), and I can make a trip out of it by going to the Cheesecake Factory (says the fiancee) or something of the like. I guess I'll find out later today whether I want to see it in IMAX.

So I got around to catching Interstellar (in UltraAVX) yesterday:

10/10

I think people (including myself) were hyping the movie a bit given it's Christopher Nolan, and given his last non-Batman movie was quite the blockbuster (Inception). Reading reviews now, it looks like it's really polarizing people one way or another- they either loved it, or absolutely hated it. However, I noticed that a lot of the "bad" reviews stem from bad movie science which doesn't help when the production team is touting it as the "most accurate representation" of what they depict. But given that the movie is classified as Sci-Fi, you should just give them a pass on the lack of accuracy.

That all said, it's not as "blockbuster-y" as Inception imo. Interstellar starts off slow, and has some slow parts in the middle. It all means something and works towards the end, but I can see how it would be boring to some. While not as pulse-pounding as Inception was, there were a few parts in Interstellar where I was just in awe.

I'm going down to Seattle in order to watch it in 70mm IMAX just to be able to say I did it. But I don't think one really needs a second viewing to catch everything in Interstellar.

Edge of Tomorrow 8/10 - a little late to the party on this one but I really liked it. Fun, action, check your brain at the door type movie. Tom was funny and it had a good concept. Worth the watch for sure.

john wick 8.0-8.4/10

i really liked how there were all these different factions within the underworld.
Spoiler!


fury 7/10
too cliche, too hollywood.
Spoiler!


interstellar 8.7/10
mind fuck, kinda slow. it seems a bit dumbed down having have to explain everything, and every theory just so "it's real". it's a fucking long movie, but i felt they also cut a lot of slow stuff out to speed it up. a lot of scenes were supposed to take place years apart, yet they just cut it so it's the next scene. there's really no sense of the "time" it took.
Spoiler!


my only complaint was when i watched it in IMAX, it felt like the bass was turned way too high. some of the quieter scenes talking, the bass from the background music was overwhelming, and i couldnt hear half the shit the people were saying the whole movie.

It was like that in UltraAVX as well. Funny you mention you watched in IMAX, because I read a few IMAX reviews and comparisons and they seem to say that IMAX had better sound mixing to avoid that problem. I guess I'll see for myself.

Interstellar 10/10.

I don't usually give 10. But C.Nolan deserved 10 for this one.

The feels bro. The feels!

9/10. Lots of laughs, great animation and a well written story. Disney Animation has really stepped up their game.

Big Hero 6 here as well, 9/10 from me. The storyline wasn't anything special but the animation and comedy were well worth it.

I'm with you on this one.

I think I went in really really hoping that this would've been amazing... In the end I was let down.

Ultra AVX wasn't too bad... but I hear that it was really rushed to make it for IMAX which is why the mix was off.

Couldn't agree with you more about the character buildup didn't give a damn about any of them but that didn't stop Nolan in trying to make their scenes excessively dramatic as if we cared

wrote a more elaborate reason as to why i didn't like it over in the interstellar thread
