Interstellar Review

Last night I had the great pleasure to witness one of the greatest films ever made. I was speechless, gobsmacked and mind blown at the sheer awesomeness that this film was.

For Sci-Fi buffs and Nolan fans, this is definitely an experience and film I recommend you see in an IMAX type of cinema. The sound was crystal perfect, it even had the effect of making the seats move and rustle at key moments which made the audience feel as if they too were also traveling in the space ship to the furthest reaches of the Galaxy.

I loved Matthew McConaughey’s portrayal of Cooper. He is definitely going to be nominated for another Oscar, (yet I still believe Michael Keaton has it in the bag.)

The film begins with the introduction of Earth and how resources are now so low that humanity’s final chance is to send McConaughey and his team to try and explore new worlds to inhabit. It is by chance (or is it?) that McConaughey stumbles upon the remaining last hope chance of NASA.

My favorite scene though was at the beginning, when the family of Cooper, Murphy and Tom all drove in their car to chase down a drone. The cinematography and way in which this and the entire sequence of the film was done was absolutely phenomenal. Another key scene which stood out for me was the first planet they visited which was surrounded in water.

I won’t say no more.. But wow. That wave.

I could ramble on about this film for ever, and I probably will once my exams are over, (like PWOAR THAT ENDING!) but for me Interstellar is perfect.

Verdict

Whilst I can understand why some people may have serious issues with the film, to me personally I believe it is through Hans Zimmer’s music and Nolan’s creativity that a true masterpiece has been created. A must see film for any movie buff. Near perfect in every way possible.

Score 10/10 – Masterpiece

Day 3- The Storm of a lifetime

So I was peacefully asleep dreaming up probably my exam in the next week when all of a sudden I heard a loud BANG. I awake and see a bright light colour.

At first my instinct is that Aliens have invaded and this is the end of the world… But no it’s just a really bad storm. Here’s a nice image I found on Twitter:

Whilst it may be scary.. It is quite magical. Remember to keep the dogs and cats indoors because they’ll be really scared atm!

I pray we don’t have any floods this time around.

I best get some sleep. Will probably do another post later in the day!

Sign off in the comments below if you’re hearing the orchestra of doom like I am, or if you have any photos or thoughts on this storm!

Until then! 🙂

Day 2 – My View of Melbourne

Today is Sunday the 26th of October. Whilst visiting a relative of ours, I captured this beautiful image of Melbourne.

There’s something so unique about the culture of this city which makes it so different to everywhere else in the world. Is it the variety of people? food? culture? religion?

The thing I have found to be such a great thing about this city.. Is the fact everybody seems to get on well. It’s that true Aussie spirit which makes this city stand out among others. As well as this, we have buskers all along the streets performing magic tricks, dances and my favorite one: Music.

It seems that Melbourne is so full of “everything” which seems to make people just bond together.

Anyway that’s my thoughts for the day!
Until next time 🙂

Day 1- Beginnings

Hello world!

I have always wanted to create a blog, and since my Year 11 exams are in two weeks what a better time to start procrastinating right here and right now. Over the course of the coming days, weeks, months and years should I hopefully still keep my blog! I’ll be writing on events, news or places that appeal to me during my daily commute on my way to school.

I have always been traveling on the train since Year 5 and with four or sometimes more train “trips” a day too and from my destination I always see things that capture my attention.

I hope this is only the beginning of something great and I cannot wait to begin 🙂
