I'm an amateur artist and writer who has a B.A. in Biological Anthropology from the University of California in San Diego.

Interests
I must admit ahead of time that I have developed somewhat of a distate for Christopher Nolan. He was off to a good start with Batman Begins, but ever since the disappointment that was The Dark Knight, all the gushing over him has gotten on my nerves and made me steer clear of his work. Except maybe Man of Steel, but then he didn't actually direct that. However, since I wanted to see a movie slightly different from what I usually prefer, I decided to pay Interstellar a visit anyway.

I still wasn't all that impressed. One of the big problems was the lack of urgency behind the whole "save the world" plot. Besides the unexplained dust storms which don't even seem to inflict all that much damage, the movie never gives us a clear sense that humanity is actually in grave peril. The dialogue mentions food shortages and blights, but the cornfields are so lush that Cooper and his family have no reservations whatsoever about driving over them when chasing the drone. By not explaining what was going on with the Earth in the first place, the movie didn't give me enough reason to fear for Cooper's family after he left.

And seriously, the whole theme of NASA denying the moon landings near the beginning was absurd. There are so many articles on the Internet debunking the conspiracy theories that they'd have a very hard time covering them all up. They wouldn't even need to deny anything if all they wanted to do was discourage future space travel. They could have just said they ran out of resources for new space travel.

So yeah, Nolan disappointed again.

I want your opinion. What do you think of the Egyptian Marvel villain Apocalypse? I noticed Egyptian stuff is your specialty.
