I’m still a little bit worried about how the movie touches on certain current social issues but Gone Girl just might be the most well made movie I’ve seen this year.
Tickets for Interstellar are now on sale. If you are thinking about watching this movie, I would encourage you to watch it on film. Christopher Nolan and cinematographer Hoyte Van Hoytema (Let the Right One In, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, The Fighter, Her) shot a huge portion of this movie using IMAX film cameras. IMAX the company is in the process of converting many of their theaters to digital projection and so Interstellar just might be the last feature film that is both shot and projected on glorious 70mm celluloid.
Digital projection is getting better. I personally prefer Kodak’s 4k projection over the rest. But it still can’t match film’s depth and color. Digital images often look flat and the color range and deep blacks get muddy.
Here’s a link that might be helpful if you want to figure out which format you’d like to watch Interstellar in.
And here are a few IMAX related posts from my archive.
Woke up early this morning to drive to the unemployment office to verify my identity. Going to the branch 30 miles away to avoid the hectic nature of government offices in my area was totally worth it. Then went to Staples to take advantage of their sale on plastic bins. Came home and cleaned and organized my room for six hours while watching the second half of season one of Battlestar Galactica. Ron Moore, thank you for creating such a wonderful show that gets better every time I watch it.
Two things I’m waiting for: to hear back from the tutoring center I want to work for and the midnight launch of Destiny tonight.
I’m also enjoying the fact that I get to spend more time with my brother and his family due to the extra free time I have right now. I do hope that I find a new place to work for soon. But I’m going to appreciate the season I’m in as much as possible.
I am thankful for social safety nets and for friends and family that I can lean on. I will not take what I have for granted.
