Interstellar feels like it was created from a long list of things designed to impress the audience. Consequently the story feels a little bit forced like they are trying too hard, but only a little bit forced.
I no longer care. Whatever the movie was attempting to do, it does it superbly. This is one well executable movie. Despite any problems the film has, it is an amazing ride for the audience.
In my original review I said that the movie feels like it recycled parts of 2001: A Space Odyssey, Gravity, and Frequency. I think that the producers wanted to recycle some old elements to play it safe, but the movie is still loaded with original ideas.
There is so much good stuff in this movie that people will want to see it over and over. After my second viewing, I am changing my rating to * * * *.
