Interstellar opens on an Earth that’s struggling to sustain itself.  Frequent blights on crops and seemingly never-ending dust-storms force humanity to eke out an existence as career farmers.  One such farmer, Cooper (McConaughey), a former engineer (and NASA test-pilot) is called up for a dangerous mission beyond our solar system to seek out  out a new home for the human race.

(A heads-up: There’s some discussion of the later moments of Interstellar in this review, if you wanna go in fresh save it for later.)

This week Conor and Luke grappled with the question:
What is more romantic, a couple of nights on the road with Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert, or five snowbound months being seduced by the Overlook Hotel?(In order to really examine these questions, they watched The Shining and It Happened One Night. Later they talked about The Critic, Dr Katz and Dune)
