Interstellar is the best movie of my life.

I was going to take a break from writing today, but then I came across one of my connection’s social media stories where they used Hans Zimmer’s Interstellar soundtrack. Maybe it’s a coincidence, but lately, I’ve heard too many people use the theme for their stuff. For example, the carnivore-diet influencer Paul Saladino in his Thanksgiving post. What?! Why use this beautiful music created for an epic space movie for a social account promoting meat?

But I don’t mean to rant. I found the theme on YouTube and replayed it this evening, it in its entirety several times. It’s still playing right now, as I am writing this.

I then watched another video that recapped Interstellar.

I liked this synopsis, but I didn’t need to be reminded of the greatness of this movie — I rewatched it just several months ago.

A masterpiece that’s aging well, and I can imagine how it will continue to stay timeless even against the background of all the extraordinary technological progress that we’re witnessing because what we are seeing is far less grandiose than the story that Christopher Nolan attempted to tell.

Epic as a sci-fi movie and how it addresses the theme of love. Visually stunning, and the music is so beatiful.

Go watch it alone or with your family if you haven’t recently!
