Having started Obsessive Viewer in February 2013, last year was the first year I got to share my stats online. You can read my year in review post from 2013 here. Continue reading

Later this week, we are releasing our Interstellar review. In honor of that episode, we’re re-releasing our Nolan Retrospective in chronological order. There’s also a teaser for our Interstellar review at the end. Continue reading

Movie Review: Interstellar (2014)

Interstellar black hole


Christopher Nolan has a knack for taking a genre and creating something unique and fresh out of it. Batman Begins offered an intense and gritty comic book origin story. The Dark Knight was a crime thriller set in the Batman universe. Inception was a heist movie in a sci-fi dream world. And Memento was a noir revenge movie that put the audience into the damaged perspective of its protagonist. Now with Interstellar, Nolan has set his sights on conquering space.

Is Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar Being Positioned for the 2015 Oscar Race?

A few years ago, two things happened. My alarm ringtone was changed to Mind Heist by Zack Hemsey (the music from the trailer for Inception) and I stumbled upon Interstellar’s IMDb page. At the time, Interstellar was one of many movies in line to be directed by Steven Spielberg. Those movies included War Horse, The Adventures of Tintin and Lincoln.
