So, I saw the movie ‘Interstellar’. As I correctly guessed, the movie is all about how USA & NASA save the world. But more than that, it’s a 100% science fiction that requires you to know some pretty advanced physics concepts – like worm hole, theory of relativity, space-time continuum, time dilation and so on. I can bet that 99% of the people who say that they ‘loved’ the movie didn’t understand what was happening on the screen. Yet – they’ll say they loved the movie. I found out the real reason.
It gives your ego a boost and thus makes you feel superior over the others! Even if you had no clue what’s happening on the screen, you can’t expose your ignorance to others! You’ve gotta behave as if the entire movie was ‘made for people like you’ who eat, sleep and drink science.
I didn’t like the movie at all. It has a depressing story line. Oh by the way, if you are < 32 years of age and not a physicist, I can safely bet that I’ve read more about worm holes, theory of relativity and general physics than 99.99% of you. I’m not boasting about my knowledge and don’t want to be challenged; but I know that I know more about this stuff than most of you. Because, the subject itself is boring – unless you are totally interested in learning it.
Secondly, I don’t act under peer pressure. I didn’t like the movie – and that’s all about it.
