Interstellar Is Stellar Not Interstellar!


Christopher Nolan’s new epic, Interstellar, is a magnificent achievement technically but falls a bit short in terms of story and character development. It’s an intriguing mix of science fact and fiction that attempts to turn a potential end of the world scenario with a phoenix-like rise from the ashes story. It spends a lot of time thinking and paying homage to Kubrick, but falls short with plot points that don’t add up and maybe one-and-a-half characters that are at all developed.

Matthew McConaughey shines as Cooper, an engineer turned farmer by necessity and Mackenzie Foy shines as his intelligent, earnest, determined young daughter, Murph. Otherwise, there are no characters we can really care about – which makes all the cool science stuff less relatable.

True Detective: Things Are Coming Apart As They Come Together!


Can you betray someone by not doing something? Is Rust aware he’s part of a story? True Detective (HBO, Sundays, 9/8C) became much more than just another murder mystery right from its premiere. The series has called into question various philosophies; the nature of the universe; the concept of fate, and whether a person’s character can change. In tonight’s episode, Haunted Houses, things simultaneously begin to come together and fall apart.

Read a review of Haunted Houses and check out a sneak peek of a key moment (warning: F-Bomb alert) after the jump.

True Detective Sets the Bar High for 2014!


HBO’s True Detective (Sundays, 10/9C) is something of an anomaly in American television – every episode was written by series creator Nic Pizzalotto and every episode was directed by the same director, Cary Fukanaga. It’s a unique vision that features some of the best work by its leads – Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey. Which is saying one heckuva lot. My review includes a teaser for tonight’s episode, The Locked Room – check it out after the jump.

Follow the jump for an inside look at the show’s second episode, Seeing Things.
