A good way to describe Interstellar is its comparison to 2001: A Space Odyssey. And I really don't see how something can be too sci-fi...

People expected it to be "Nolan-realistic". Except that right off the bat, you knew crazy things were gonna happen in the first 45 minutes of the film
Spoiler!


I wouldn't go as say Interstellar is on 2001's level, but I would say it is the 2001 of our generation. Kubrick has this effect where no matter what film you're watching of his, you just feel so unsettled and have a sense of dread.

Also, speaking of 2001, I am always impressed of the Kuleshov Effect.

Has anyone seen Furious 7? I heard the Special Effects were great and the villain's introduction is like, unbelievably cool but they apparently waste his potential. I haven't exactly concerned myself with that series, but other people like it.

Yes, it's not exactly at the same level, but there are some bits (at least in my eyes) that had a 2001 feel. There's the slow build-up and one of the few space films with no sound outside in space.

He's got the effect where you wish you'd never sat through it, if that's what you mean. Just like Nolan. They're the makers of overwrought garbage, which is what pseudo-intellectuals love to dine upon. I call it the Twilight phenomenon of the space man movies.

Apparently not.

I don't believe in Nolan-realism. I'm saying that's what people were expecting. Nolan is spectacular visually and artistically, but his writing lacks for it. I respect Nolan to a high degree from his self-taught filmmaking and being the first director making movies specifically aimed towards IMAX.

Kubrick, I would have to disagree with you. It seems like you're trying to spark a heated debate, Clockwork Orange and Full Metal Jacket is pure cinematic gold. Dr. Strangelove is, in my opinion, one of the most important pieces in cinematic history.

Who is Dr. Strangelove?

EDIT:

Ohhhhhh, that's Dr. Strangelove. Is it? He looks stupid.

A German warmongering weirdo scientist type with I think a metal hand, like Dr. No's or the mad scientist from the old Metropolis movie. He's someone people like to put in their avatars to show they're wonderful to other people.

Peter Sellers did a hilarious job in Dr. Strangelove.
