Lesson 5: Interstellar – The Fiction of Science

Apr 6, 2016 | Podcasts, The Filmlosophers

The Filmlosophers, Eddie Villanueva and Chad Riley, take an in-depth look at Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar (2014), a film that invites mental scrutiny but doesn’t quite stand up under the gravity of its own story structure. News items also include the passing of Erik Bauersfeld, the voice of Admiral Ackbar for the Star Wars franchise; Disney releases the first trailer for The BFG (2016); Joel McHale plays a younger version of his Community (2009) costar, Chevy Chase, in a Netflix biopic on the creators of National Lampoon; and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) faces a 68% drop in second week attendance.
