I just don't see how anyone could rate the film a 50, let alone a 20. I mean I didn't love the film but I'd have to say there's enough quality craftsmanship to warrant at least a 60 even if an individual doesn't like it. Personally I'd give it an 80 or 90 by their rating scale and fortunately there's enough that agree and many who rate it a 100 to balance out all the imbeciles listed above for an overall average of 80/100 which given all those low scores is quite impressive! I noticed also that the higher grades tended to come from more legit critics such as Laremy Legel of Film.com He is an RT Top Critic and he scored Interstellar a 100. Also Chris Knight of the National Post gave it a 100 and Dave Karger (Fandango) and Justin Craig (FoxNews) are a few among those who gave 90's.
It's completely subjective. If people hated the story, then they have every right in the world to give it a 20 or 50. I love the movie, but I can easily understand why someone might not agree with my take. It is Nolan's least accessible big budget movie.
