Theater Thursday

It's Thursday and around here that can only mean one thing... it's Theater Thursday! This week's featured movie is a newer release. I wanted to originally see it in the theater but the reviews weren't so hot so I waited until it came out on dvd. This week's featured movie is.... Interstellar.
Interstellar stars Matthew McConaughey as Cooper a former military pilot and ex NASA astronaut. Due to failing crops humanity is struggling to survive. The only thing that keeps harvesting is corn and even that is drying up. The Earth is dying and it's going to take everyone with it. When Cooper and his daughter Murphy discover an odd piece of gravity in her room they go out on an adventure to see where it leads them. It reveals to be an underground, super secret government operation that is trying to find a place for humans to go out in the galaxy.

It's being ran by NASA and one of Cooper's former professors. They have been sending astronauts out into deep space to find a new planet that can used to hold humanity. Being persuaded to travel through the planets which could take multiple Earth years, he willing agrees to go with three other astronauts into deep space. They will set out for a wormhole off Jupiter. His co-pilot will be Amelia (Anne Hathaway), which is the professors daughter. They will keep each other company for years to come. If they do not find a place for humanity to go everyone on Earth will die. Will they be successful?

This movie is almost three hours long and is incredibly confusing so you really need to pay attention. I thought it was really good but Beezy hated it.

I wanted to see it when it first came out as I love disaster movies, but as time went on, I thought, meh, and haven't seen it yet.
