Re: Interstellar Oscar Chances

Also, did anyone see Whiplash?

Its probably the best movie I've seen in the last 5 years. It won't win best pic, but I'm glad to see it nominated and was glad to see JK Simmons get the Golden Globe for best supporting actor. He definitely deserved it.

Do yourself a favor and see it if you can.

Re: Interstellar Oscar Chances

The Academy is very sensitive to past trends especially in terms of best picture awards. I don't think Interstellar is worthy of a best picture nomination by a long shot, but I didn't think Gravity was either. Technical acheivements don't make up for lackluster stories. That being said, with Gravity...

Re: Interstellar Oscar Chances

I could totally be wrong on these predictions. I'll eat my words if it wins best picture.

But it won't and I won't :D

Honestly, if every member of a community shared the exact same thoughts, it would be a pretty fucking dull community. People are allowed to have differing opinions.
Thanks Tom. I agree.

Re: Interstellar Oscar Chances

It's people like CornCobb or Skyab that make me hate the film community at times. You hate the "film community" whenever it has a different opinion than you? Sorry I didn't like the movie as much as you bud. I'm sure there are movies I love that you don't. Dudley Do-Right probably being one of them...

Re: Interstellar Oscar Chances

I'm not sure what most of you are smoking here, but I can't see this movie getting nominated for anything beyond purely technical awards. And I consider myself a Nolan fan. Here's what I think will happen: Cinematography nom - but will probably lose to Birdman. Visual FX nom - probably win and MAYB...

Re: 'Interstellar' Nolan Fans Member Reviews

7/10 Saw it, liked it. Will probably buy it. BUT... I think most people here are overhyping it. Its cool to look at but I refuse to concede that the story is as brilliant as most here are claiming. Its no 2001 and its hardly Nolan's best. Most of the "big/mind-blowing" ideas presented in this story ...

In light of Interstallar, makes a "true" Nolan Fan?

What constitutes a "true" Nolan fan?

Do you have to love all his movies?
