Trivia

The name of the black hole is "Gargantua," who was also a giant with an incredible appetite, very difficult to satisfy. This character was created by Francois Rabelais in his "Gargantua et Pantagruel" novels. See more »

Goofs

NASA would need the help of significant industrial might in order to build the Endeavor and the other spacecraft needed the Lazarus missions. Yet all indications are most of Earth's industry, especially its high tech industry is no longer operating by 2074 as shown by everyone driving vehicles that are at least 60 years old and the old drone that Cooper and his family saw crash near their home.

Quotes

Doyle: Where's the rest?
Brand: Towards the mountains!
Cooper: Those aren't mountains... they're waves.
Brand: Oh shit. Oh shit!
Cooper: That one's moving away from us...
Brand: [struggling through the water] We need the recorder!
Cooper: [he looks in the other direction and sees a mounting wave towering thousands of feet over them] Brand, Doyle, back to the Ranger, now!

The most overrated movie on IMDb right now, a complete letdown
19 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

If you saw "sunshine" and thought "wow, good thing they had scientist advisers, this stuff is so plausible", you will like "interstellar".

If you saw "armaggeddon" and thought "what an awesome movie, i just wished they would have dragged the scene where he says goodbye to his daughter out even more", you will like "interstellar".

If you saw "inception" and thought "this movie would be so much better in SPACE!", you will like "interstellar".

And if you liked "2001" or any other intelligent/geeky sci-fi movie, you will hate "interstellar".

Like some of Nolan's earlier works, it's long for the sake of length only. Its plot is up there with "armaggeddon" in pure stupidity and forced US-cowboy-patriot-macho-ism, its special effects are underwhelming, its plot twists are obvious, its setting makes no sense, its characters are flat and forgettable, and its constant citations of "2001" just serve to make you remember how much better Kubrick did all of this with a tiny fraction of the money almost 50 years back.

Disappointing.
