    Black holes, space travel and the science of the movie ‘Interstellar’

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/nation...031_story.html

    C Nolan is the BEST director out there (sorry Speilberg and Cameron) and I can't wait to get to my local IMAX to see this epic.

    What says JRM?

    "I don't care what you say about me as long as you spell my name right." That quote has been attributed to many people. Steven Spielberg is not one of them. :-)

    I'm certainly interested to see it. Nolan's films have generally hit the mark, so I hope this doesn't disappoint.

    Kip Thorne (who somehow snagged executive producer credit!) is an emeritus Professor at Caltech. He made his claim to fame through the study of gravitational waves and traversable wormholes, which is the stuff used herein. The visuals and optics of the black hole are quite close to what one would actually see. In fact, Thorne and collaborators discovered a few new things in the process, and are writing up some technical papers on the subject.

    Oh, you must be thinking of Steven Spielberg! I was talking about Howie Speilberg, the noted documentarian, My Big Fat Greek Bar Mitzvah. :-p

    Ever hear of Momento or the Dark Knight trilogy or Inception?

    The trilogy and Inception only raked in a cool TWO AND A HALF BILLION $$$

    If you can find an IMAX theater that shows The Dark Knight (with Heath Ledger as the Joker) as a special presentation, I will personally pay for your ticket, just so you can see what a cinematic virtuoso looks like on the screen!!!

    Your kindness and generosity are noted, I greatly appreciate the offer . I would say that you are the salt of the earth but that just doesnt carry the moral heft it used to.


    Ok, I just read a few more reviews of Nolan's interstellar. One suggested that Nolan's nihilistic world view comes through too strongly.
