I wanted to see it up until I saw one of the trailers saying 'WUV BEATS PHYSICS!'

Sunshine > Interstellar
Rodents of Unusual Size
Sunshine was the movie that went from being one of the best movies with such a strong first half to basically one of the worst most incomprehensible movies in the second half. I don't think there is a single movie that shifted that dramatically for me.
Interstellar's was a worse shift for me.. what's funny is that they both took different aspects from Event Horizon. I fucking liked that movie! First rated R movie I saw in the theatre (of age.) Somehow I feel vindicated.
Agreeing with Rodents. Love Boyle to death, wanted to love this, but it just fell the fuck apart.

I loved this movie so so much. I cried so hard. This was funny but god damn the tessaract scene really pulled on my heart.
w/r/t my above comment, I do have a heart (I really honestly do) and I teared up a little too. It just seemed kinda out of place given the rest of the movie.. I dunno. I was pretty surprised that it didn't get nominated for best picture. Birdman was the second best movie I saw this year, but Whiplash just reminded me of most music teachers I had growing up, Boyhood, meh, four biopics (not including Boyhood?) and Wes Anderson's "Same Movie But This Time It's Different."
Then again I cried a lot more at Guardians of the Galaxy :)

This movie felt like it was intended to be a mini-series but got compressed into a movie at the last minute. So many scenes and plot points with no point: the drone capture and farm equipment converging on the house. Up until they left Earth it felt like a completely different movie, Signs II.
It's like they were mandated to stick in a pointless action scene every 20 minutes to keep modern audiences awake: the drone chase, the mega-tsunami (where the water is one foot deep?), Matt Damon mad bomber.
The ending really made no sense at all. He has to send messages back in time to start off the journey, but can has to go on the journey in the first place to send the messages. Future humans built the tesseract, but humanity would have died off long before without ever leaving the solar system without the information sent back form the tesseract. How did future humans even reach the system? The tesseract operated on the power of LOVE, so he could only be anchored to his daughter's childhood bedroom (a 4th dimensional structure with infinite points of time but one fixed point in space?) except for the one time when his hand reached out through the window of the ship before it went through the wormhole, because....?
The line about future humans building the thing was such a dumb edition and the whole thing would have been better off with aliens doing it. Extra dimensional beings who are fascinated by the strange concept of LOVE which unlocks the potential of their technology, so they lend a helping hand to a species demonstrating it in their own alien way.
It was refreshing to see actual science fiction movies get blockbuster budgets, but the flick really had issues.

yeah, i'm always a fan at an attempt at Hard Sci-Fi on the big screen, but this movie failed because of it's faults, while movies like Gravity (and yes, Sunshine (a movie we still debate what was both a critical and commercial afterthought at the time)) succeeded in spite of their faults. I think ultimately, Nolan hung around with Goyer too much, and picked up his reliance on deus ex machina and the need to make the story fit the set-pieces, and not the other way around.
