future humans from interstellar like taking risks

interstellar-murphy-todo-list

 

in interstellar future humans designed a process to save human race, including themselves.

any mistake in this process will result in end of human race.

these future humans have following technologies:

– travel anywhere in time;

– travel anywhere in space;

– move people, robots, and other objects through space and time.

 

these are requirements for the process to work well and save the human race:

– cooper must fall in a black hole;

– at the same time cooper is in the black hole, also a robot must fall in;

– cooper and robot must be able to communicate inside a black hole;

– while in black hole, of all places in the universe, cooper can only access murphy’s room;

– cooper can access murphy’s room at any point in time by gliding between rooms at different times;

– cooper can change murphy’s room by moving objects less than a centimeter;

– cooper must know how to by code black hole raw data in binary code;

– cooper must invent a method to communicate that binary code to murphy by moving objects in her room;

– murphy must be able to read binary code and know what to do with the black hole data.

if any of the above conditions is not met, human race dies and future humans never exist.

 

i wonder if the writers of interstellar could have came up with something more realistic.

here are few suggestions what future humans could have done to save the human race:

– email at least 200 relevant individuals and institutions with clear well written instructions;

– do what general zod did in man of steel – take over every screen and clearly say what you need done.

 

here are some movie examples of good and bad ways humans are communicated instructions:

– in prometheus, cave drawings are used as a map to a military testing planet

– in 2001, monolith serves as a test for humans, once reached it notifies the aliens

– in contact, aliens give us instructions how to reach them, only problem is aliens use 3d paper

 

i have to conclude,

since i started enjoying sci fi, i never saw such a nonsensical story as interstellar.

christopher nolan interstellar review

this is a christopher nolan’s interstellar review written in approx. 10 mins.

it contains spoilers.

movie plot in short

future humans can travel through space and time.

future humans apply a strategy which results in earlier human survival.

thus a time loop is created.

interstellar depicts the very start of the future human strategy.

what is great about the movie

nolan’s attention to aesthetics and detail is very high.

he does not have the warmth and emotion, but the details make up for it.

what is bad about the movie

movie attempts to use hard science as a base for a story.

however, nolan ultimately does not have the capacity to pull this off.

nolan, in case of interstellar, is a pop illustrator, and not a sci-fi writer.

too many errors have been covered by too much eye-candy.

what should have been avoided

interstellar has been positioned very high by press before premiere.

this created very high expectations.

if this was not done, there would have been less disappointment.

what i really did not like

my first reaction was that interstellar is a bad copy of clarke’s and kubrick’s 2001.

there is a strong reason why kubrick worked with clarke, and that is a story.

sci-fi’s soul is a story, it has to be 100 % genius proof.

all other genre requires less story.

this is where nolan fails and essential lack of understanding of the genre.

tips

i always enjoyed lovecrafts depiction of existence in multiple dimensions.

definitely watch 2001 before you watch interstellar.

1990’s ghost is a better story if you want emotions packed in a supernatural narrative.

nikola tosic speaks up

nikola tosic

i just saw that tim cook publicly acknowledged that he is gay.

following his example i wish to publicly acknowledge that i am heterosexual.

i’m proud to be heterosexual, and I consider being heterosexual among the greatest gifts i have.

this 30 october seem to be the day for people to express their sexual preference.

i can not really see why anyone would care about sexual preference,

but since it seems to be a fashion, i do not mind sharing.

so, there you go, i am heterosexual.

movies to expect in next 50 years (batman and aliens for example)

batman and aliens

movies to expect in next 50 years:

– weird franchise mixes: vampire batman & vampire aliens

– lots of sequels more often for nerdy audiences: 2 animated brothers fritz movies per year for 5 years

– biographies of really weird people: the life of sasha gray in 5 sequels

overall, two main trends in movie content design will occur:

– much more niche content, just as what happened with books;

– stories are immediately designed to be expanded over MANY movies.
