I just got back from the theater. I enjoyed the movie. There were a few slow downs, but the sound and CGI effects crushed those to bits.

Have any of you seen it yet?

This is some great science fiction.

I liked it a lot. I went with a small group and half of us really liked it and the other half thought it was alright but wouldn't want to see it again.

I liked the 5th dimensional parts, Its kinda how I envisioned A 3D representation of the 5d would look like, I did not think that was outlandish, Its kinda how I imagine particals as being in superposition, across time and dimension.

Thumbs up.

It made the time I spent in Physics class worth while. Normally I'm just staring at a pulley and wondering why people don't understand the basics of physics.

The sound is not as good as it could have been. It was mixed quite poorly. Unfortunately that's par for the course with Christopher Nolan. The music overpowers some of the dialog in certain scenes. That's just bad sound mixing. Also kind of growing tired of Hanz Zimmerman's bombastic scores. Movie itself was entertaining. Look forward to watching it at home on a better sound system.

Leaves me with a few questions:


How can he push the books off the shelf?

How does he know which books he's pushing since he can't see the titles?

Why didn't he create a different message than the one he already got before?

Why did "they" put the wormhole all the way out at fucking Saturn?

Why don't the frozen clouds fall to the ground?

From my understanding he was in between time and space. They mentioned that, "the only thing that can move across dimensions is time and gravity", so his presence was the past and the future-present. He was in-between dimensions. His presence was already predicted when the Scientist touched the "loose hand" when they were first going through the hole. He relayed Morse code to her out of fear years before he even left. In my opinion; in another dimension he knew what was going on. Her ghost was gravity, which was his warning from going into space. This might reference 'going back in time and going back to the future'.

I think it might of been easier to say the door to the next dimension can't be seen in the night sky by the naked eye, but by being further away.

Gravity possibly; gravity's speed is 9.8 m/s^2 on earth. Everything has a force of gravity weighing it down. Newton's laws would also help understand this as well.

I'd also suggest doing research on wormholes. I only really understand forces, vectors, and electricity when it comes to physics.

so what your saying is that a body falls 9.8 m/s in Earth gravity, so were constantly falling on the ground with the same force/speed. woder what would happen if gravity was turned up %30 extra. All the office chairs in the world would break.

9.8 m/s^2. It's acceleration, not velocity.

Yea

Acceleration is the rate at which the velocity of an object changes over time. An object's acceleration is the net result of any and all forces acting on the object, as described by Newton's Second Law.

Velocity is the rate of change of the position of an object, equivalent to a specification of its speed and direction of motion.

F = MA
F = MG in a gravitational field
