I know. That’s a bold statement right there. But I stand by it – Interstellar still makes my jaw drop.
As you may or may not know, I’m a network engineer by trade, an operations technician to be precise. Not sure if that’s the correct term in english, but to explain it I basically work shifts and monitor the data network of one of Sweden’s largest internet service providers. During the day I mostly solve tickets from other departments, but during the night it’s almost exclusively monitoring stuff. This means not a lot to do, most of the time. Unless someone breaks the internet, obviously.
Anyway. The other night I got asked to work overtime. 8 PM to 7 AM. I was actually on vacation but to work 11 hours overtime means big bucks. “Buy a new tech toy”-big. So I agreed. It was one of those nights where NOTHING happens, so I figured I could spend my time watching Interstellar for the second time.
One of my favorite movies of all time is Inception, and I think Christopher Nolan outdid himself on this one. It’s got the awesomeness, grandness, and definitely not to forget – probably one of the best soundtracks ever. I know Hans Zimmer recycles many of his songs for different movies, but as far as I know this is pretty unique. It really fits the theme. Matthew Mcconaughey (yes, I had to google the spelling) is also brilliant, even though I’ve never been a fan of his.
So if you haven’t seen Interstellar yet – which I assume you have since it realeased in 2014 – you definitely should. Check out the clip below for my favorite scene.
PS. Star Wars is considered a Space Opera, otherwise it would be harder to crown a winner.
