Interstellar is a scientifically rich and visually brilliant, but is the dialogue stilted and emotionally two-dimensional? Baleigh says yes. We also discuss:

Baleigh’s least favorite line and why it’s terrible.

How the movie is a paradox and whether or not that’s a good thing.

Why Topher Grace’s role makes no sense.

Tbh, Scott goes on for way too long about what he thinks this movie is about, but it’s only because he loves it so much, so try to be understanding. The conversation gets more interesting after the 16 minute mark.

Bonus: Scott admits that he cries every time he watches this movie, and Baleigh butchers David Gyasi’s name.
