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. :roll: 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! :clap: 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.

And it's my opinion it's his best film to date and deserves 100/100

Renee Zellweger was also in Dazed & Confused (she's the girl who walks in front of Wooderson when he says the line about high school girls). She was one of McC's many ex-girlfriends. They were in the same class at University of Texas (also in their same year: Wes Anderson and Owen Wilson. Pretty amazing if you think about it.)

It will be a decade or two before we get another film like Interstellar.

The Nolans, McC, Anne and Jessica are all out campaigning with the Academy! Is it just me, or is the comment about Chris talking to Brad Gray of Paramount about how they've been releasing Interstellar implied criticism?? Warner's has done such a great job internationally.

Outstanding news that they haven't given up yet on it. I'd be reasonably happy with it sweeping the technical nods and wins, which it can't be denied are deserved.

Also this crap about the sound mix criticism is... Interesting... To say the least. Does anyone actually see it being snubbed in that regard? I don't think so.
