We saw Interstellar at an Imax domed ceiling theater, with friends the other night. The film begins with a lot of miserable scenery, a mud covered pickup truck, and dirty sweaty characters. For much of the film, we're straining to hear or make sense out of Matthew McConaughey's mush-mouthed mumbling. Alternately, for much of the film we're actually covering our ears to try to block out the GREAT BIG EPIC explosions & just plain annoying, unnecessary noise. We were not happy with this film, with its allusions of "2001: A Space Odyssey" mixed with "The Grapes of Wrath". The dreary corn-pone story droned on and on, with characters we didn't like or care about (especially the precocious daughter) and egregious use of Dylan Thomas. We noticed a number of people walking out on this flick. We should have done the same, but we kept waiting for it to get better. Some people were just leaning forward, plugging their ears, looking down at the floor - sick of watching this turkey, waiting for it to finally end. The theater had made an announcement before the show started, suggesting that those leaving the theater during the film exit quietly through far side doors, and I thought that was odd. Now I know why they made that announcement. Did they know a number of people would be walking out on this GREAT BIG EPIC?
