“I’m not afraid of death. I’m an old physicist — I’m afraid of time.”

I watched two long movies this weekend: The Hobbit: Battle Of The Five Armies (imdb | rotten tomatoes), a 2.5-hour movie in which not very much at all happens, and Interstellar (imdb | rotten tomatoes), a 2.5-hour movie in which almost too much happens.

I get why a some people didn’t like Interstellar. It had its issues. But the issues were more than outweighed by the joys of it, I thought. The scale. The adventure. The robots. It was worth the warts.
