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!
