    It missed out on any top tier nominations.
    Zimmer was likely going to cave to Desplat and he did.
    I would have traded off Sniper for this in BP but of course Clint…
    Was probably close in the Sound categories but, no.
    I suppose Nolan had a shot at a screenplay nod but he wouldn’t have won even if they found a spot for him.
    On a personal level I found it surprisingly moving. It may not be a perfect film but it’s one of his best imo.

    Overrated by the internet/Nolan fanboy community.
    Underrated by critics and journalists.

    IMO, it’s a good and entertaining flick and has some really interesting themes in it, but it feels a bit cold and clinical, like most of Nolan’s movies do.

    Lol this is the first film I could remember (being an adult) that I audibly cried during. I’ll tear up at a bunch of movies if they move me, but I found myself literally crying during this. I guess maybe because I didn’t expect to have that type of emotional reaction going into it. But yeah, it gets a little messy and confusing towards the end when it tries to tie everything together, but it’s heart is in the right place.

    Certainly Nolan’s most interesting work, and by a wide margin. His “best,” even if I still don’t see it as “good.” At least he delivered something worth talking about for once!

    All the acting, though, is dialed slightly too near grating; emotions are toned too wildly, and line deliveries are eked out with so much strife it becomes overbearing, smearing the meaning against the walls

    I would call it underrated on some planes, overrated on others. The critical establishment rejected it on thematic grounds, which was a tad too unfair; other, more eclectic circles of theorists have begun embracing Interstellar, though. Similarly, audiences rejected it from a narrative standpoint, despite it being rather easy to follow, so long as you pay attention. That being said, despite a pretty frame here and there, the film is incredibly overrated from a formal standpoint. Zimmer delivers another overbearing score, Smith cuts everything to shit and then tries to sell us pieces of shit glued together, and van Hoytema clings to his drone shots for the worse.

    God, people complaining about or admiring Interstellar for this reason was very irritating. The plot was pretty straight forward for most of the film and any scientific/technical stuff was understandable if you actually listened to what was being said. I guess such complaints are understandable considering the type of movies most people usually consume now.

    I’d say underrated mostly because I’ve seen it get some harsher criticism over time from people/critics/analysis channels on the web. There are parts of Interstellar that are downright masterful, and even if you think the film doesn’t quite stick the landing it’s better than 80% of the shite out there.

    The science of the film alone makes it the one of the greatest movie of the decade. IDK why it missed so hard with the critics.

    Incredibly overrated. The problem with Nolan is he doesn’t know how to make his characters fully realized humans. They’re always two-dimensional in a sense to drive the plot.

    I am no super Nolan fan but this film was SICK!!!! Matthew would have made a great nominee in my opinion.

    Overambitious, clunky dialogue, but also engaging, amazing score, some of the best setpieces this decade, genuinely moving.

    Genuinely don’t know whether I would consider it overrated or underrated. Maybe the Best Picture slot of American Sniper or The Imitation Game or The Theory of Everything could’ve gone to this instead. Certainly, I think it has more merits than those and arguably less flaws.

    Overrated like the majority of Nolan’s work

    Extremely underrated. It was among my top 10 best films of 2014 and I could not find a single flaw in the film whatsoever. In Nolan I trust!!!

    Underrated. A masterpiece!

    All I have are negative thoughts
