Let's face it guys, Christopher Nolan's Interstellar was an "okay" movie. But that doesn't mean it didn't have one of the most thrilling set-pieces I've seen in a long time.
Watching this clip on YouTube didn't have the same effect it had on me when I saw it in the theaters but the overall feeling of tension was still there. When Cooper (Matthew McConaughey) has to dock with the Endurance as it's spinning out of control, I thought the movie was about to end in the death of all the characters.
I remember -- literally -- holding the armrest like I was in the spaceship with them. The constant spinning is dizzying for the audience and the film's score builds and adds to the thrill of the moment. As the two ships match speeds and the background starts spinning instead of the foreground it brings an uneasy release to the tension of the scene.
Even though Interstellar as a whole was a little bit above average, this scene still stands out as one of the more exciting moments in mainstream film. But what do you guys think? Are there any other moments in Interstellar that stand out to you? Let me know in the comments!
@VinMcCarthy TARS for life. FOR LIFE
I actually really liked Interstellar. I didn't think the acting was super amazing or anything, but I thought the special effects and the plot were really cool. I think that it serves as at least a spiritual successor to 2001: A Space Odyssey. I thought that when Matt Damon's character breaks McConaughey's visor I felt the most tense.
Yeah I think that that message was a little overwrought. It seemed to be ultimately corny in a movie that was prepared to be really serious. Though it did give us the best character ever in TARS.
@VinMcCarthy The one thing that really brought it down for me was the "love transcends time" message that came about once Coop went into the black hole. The more I think about it the more I dislike it, haha. But it totally has some great parts throughout. And listening to Coop gasp after the visor was cracked probably made me feel the most anxious as well.
