Depending on whom you ask, Interstellar is a [genius/horrible] film from an [acclaimed/overrated] director who [is the next/could never live up to] Stanley Kubrick. For someone who basically just adapts his dream journal into silly action films, Christopher Nolan is one of the most polarizing and over-analyzed directors of the decade.
It's almost as if the idea of a big-budget sci-fi blockbuster that actually explores science fiction (and not the tensile strength of giant CGI robots) has thrown us all off, and we have no idea how to react to it. The bizarre result is that, no matter what genre of movie Nolan puts out, the Internet goes Joker-level crazy over it in the same exact ways.
5 Every Critic Immediately Transforms Into a Terrible Version of Cracked
Look, we get it -- Cracked's charming nitpicky movie lists are a fun format blanket for critics to slip into, like Luke warming himself in a tauntaun (which, incidentally, according to Newton's law of cooling, wouldn't actually work). Every time Nolan releases a marginally thought-provoking movie (he tends to present a bunch of ideas without ever actually exploring them to a satisfying degree), everyone feels the need to prove how much smarter they are than the material, like a group of teenagers acting tough in a haunted house. The result is a cascade of "plot hole" lists so nitpicky that even we take issue.
An Inception of nitpicking if you will.
