Do you know of any research/theories that says we can survive crossing the event horizon?

I'm not aware of any that states we could survive the approach, much less crossing the event horizon.

Hans Zimmer’s score in that movie is ridiculously good.

See, I associate Matt Damon with douchebag. So, I see Matt Damon, I expect the character to be a prick (likeable or otherwise). When Matt Damon popped out of that coffin, my brain screamed, “close that motherf$&ker back up!”

This movie is very forgettable. Nothing special at all.

this. He seems like a self absorbed, smug, ahole an played one in the movie. He was better cast in this than in the Martian

I was actively rooting for Mars in that one.

re: Let’s Discuss Interstellar
The 3 big things I remember from this movie:

1) Cooper crying scene watching his kids grow up in the blink of an eye. Time is cruel.

2) The soundtrack was a big reason why this movie had such an emotional impact on people.

3) Mann doesn't get to finish his sentence when the explosion happens. I believe he says "there comes a time.." and then boom. Thought that was a great microcosm of life.

Here’s the problem with Damon’s casting: he was supposed to be the best of them and so inspiring that he convinced 12 other people to go on a suicide mission with him. There’s no way in hell I can buy that Matt Damon convinced 12 people to go on a suicide mission with him, but I could buy Walter White convincing 12 people to go on a suicide mission with him. If he just happened to be one of the people that went on the mission and pussed out like he did in the film, then that’s not much of a problem, but it is if I’m supposed to believe that he was this inspiring figure.

In all likelihood we couldn’t... but it’s technically possible since we don’t understand the event horizon. When I say it’s “technically possible” it’s one in the millions that it is possible. Nolan didn’t hardcore break any scientific laws in the film, he just asked Kip if it was theoretically possible, and if Kip said it in all likelihood isn’t possible but there were no theories that definitively disproved it, then Nolan went with it.

One of the craziest thing about this movie is that we didn’t even really know what a black hole looked like until Nolan’s computers started doing the math and it came out looking like this:



Like the wormhole being a three dimensional hole that looked like stardust immediately made sense to me, but the black hole did not. When I first saw the black hole in the trailer, I thought they were fricking with me, but it turns out from our visual perspective that is what a black hole would look like. Nolan and the special effect guys initially thought it was an error from their end as well, but they also loved the look of it. It’s still mind boggling to me that’s what they look like.

Just watched last night. It's got some issues, but it's maybe my favorite Nolan movie. It just strikes the right notes for me. I'll never forget seeing it in IMAX on opening night. Probably the most beautiful movie I've seen in a theater.

This is honestly one of my favorite movies. The stair-stepping organ music was playing in the back of my mind when I was reading this thread.

I agree with meeple about Damon. I thought he’d be a good guy based on his casting.

re: Let’s Discuss Interstellar
I really like Interstellar, but it loses a good bit of ground in the final act for me. And as interesting and "cool" as it is, it just isn't fully graspable for me, to the point that it almost becomes a little silly even. But that being said, I appreciate what Nolan was attempting to do. And I certainly appreciate the attention to detail and the attempts at making it scientifically accurate (as much as possible).

There are definitely some powerful scenes in the movie. And it is well-acted throughout (except for Damon, as mentioned).

I will say this though, I saw it in IMAX and it was way too loud during the docking scene. And I am all for full-theater experiences, but it was distractingly loud. So much so that it was borderline painful and unenjoyable at times. But the movie itself is pretty great though. And the docking scene (outside of the audio) was fantastic and really well done.

Great movie. Definitely in my top 10.

The wormhole in IMAX was awesome.

This stands out even more on the re-watches. The score absolutely drives this movie, especially in the last third. One of my all time favorite scores.

re: Let’s Discuss Interstellar
i thought it was severely overrated the first time i saw it

i watched it about 2 weeks ago and it got a big revision in the positive. i think battling insane hype immediately corresponding to its release soured the movie a lot. without that context and those expectations, watching it was a lot more natural.

the sound mixing on that movie is insane

the one scene of insane tension on the water planet, spliced in with the other scene, was peak movie making

"love" is still stupid

So freaking stupid. Remove that nonsense, and it's a pretty great film.

Interstellar is a huge re-watcher for me. When I see it on I'll record and go through it late at night after my wife is in bed (Why are you watching that again? You know how it ends!)

I think that scene almost got me there, but Cooper going to Murph’s deathbed got me completely.


Reminded me of this...

re: Let’s Discuss Interstellar
The only issues I have with interstellar involve the scene where the immense gravity being applied to the planet so close to a black hole that one hour on that planet = 7 years on earth.

For one, if they were close enough to a black hole to have that kind of gravitation pull, they would have to be crazy close to the event horizon. The radiation absorbed by being that close to a supermassive black hole will kill you almost immediately.

Also, for a gravity of that magnitude to exist on that planet, there's no way you can land a ship and walk around safely. We're talking about a gravity thousands of times that of the earth. They would have been immediately crushed by such a force.

That said, Interstellar is a really cool movie. I probably wouldn't even have changed the stuff I find inaccurate. Despite the science not really working in terms of being able to survive, it was really cool to see the time difference due to such a change in acceleration from gravity
