Interstellar

I’ve just watched the film Interstellar.

Majority of my credit would go for its hard sci-fi genre. Most of the story before diving into the black hole is quite realistic and true to science. However I don’t have much comment on the idea of 5-dimension time-space and interference via gravity, which I largely regard as a trick for telling the grand story. Oh, one more thing, I don’t think anyone would be that crazy to pick a planet (or a star system) so near the black hole for colonization.

Besides manned deep space mission, the film also touches quite some field in a humanistic way — environmental change and food shortage, war and atrocity, time dilation and family bond, burden of responsibility and deception, and, of course, love beyond space and time.

And if you have yet watched the film 2001: A Space Odyssey, try it. There is quite some parallel between two films. Well, TARS is more cute than HAL 9000.

 

Here is the poem by Dylan Thomas:

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on that sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
