This review is from: Interstellar [DVD] [2014] (DVD)
As an older SF fan I had been looking forward this video for some time. Regrettably it is very disappointing. The general theme is good but the storyline is poor and the film has obviously been made on a tight budget with an unconvincing set of models and props.. The pseudo-NASA setup is particularly unreal.
Basically the actors (with exception of Matt Damon) mumble and whisper their way through the movie over an insistent boring musical accompaniment, meaning that most of your time is spent trying to hear what is being said. A few lessons in elocution would have helped.There were virtually no references or discussions over any scientific principles which would invariably have had to have taken place, leading to the conclusion that the crew simply sat back and waited for things to happen to them.
I shall drop my DVD into the local charity shop next time I go shopping.

Pity this film seems to run along similar lines to many others of this theme. Although the performance by Judi Dench is, as always, excellent.

This is what a Star Trek film should be about. Full of adventure and excitement with a mixture of good characters.

This review is from: Wuthering Heights (Kindle Edition)
Very disappointed in this book. It is not only too depressing but also very lengthy and concentrates too much on Cathy who seems to be a spoilt individual.
