One of the brilliant things about Nolan is how he can take a somewhat complex topic (see Memento, The Prestige, Inception) and present it in a way that the viewer *feels smart* for understanding, but still is able to understand. Hopefully this will be more of the same. A little worried that his non-batman films I feel have decreased in quality since Memento but even Inception was still pretty good and time travel is always fun that I imagine it'll at least be enjoyable and could be something really special.

Really liked this.

Something that I still don't really get though:

Why did Matt Damon's character act the way he did? The whole "send a ping so you'll get rescued bit" I get. By why continue the charade after they showed up? Had he just gone mad from isolation? Was he worried everyone else was actually going to go back to earth and not head to the third planet?

He was worried about the latter part once they found out his planet was inhabitable.

But like... Why fake the data and kill the robot ahead of time????? Not like he one that's how he'd be found

Once again, I don't get why the use of such realistic science is so praised. If I wanted to learn about that shit I'd watch a documentary not a fucking fictional film that takes place in a world that doesn't exist. Sure it might spark curiosity about the subject but it doesn't do the film any favors.

how did it hurt the film though? I was totally fine with Gravity and the liberties they took with how satellites work because its a movie and there is bound to be some suspension of disbelief. But its still nice when they get the details right. The key is not letting the details get in the way of actually telling a cool story, but I don't think that happened here...
