Let's talk about the plot of 'Interstellar'

Warning: Major ‘Interstellar’ spoilers lie ahead!

Interstellar is the most and least confusing movie that Christopher Nolan has ever made. The most confusing, because the spacefaring odyssey takes the filmmaker’s usual Rubik’s-cube narrative structure and blends in a hearty dose of upper-level astrophysics. Some of the astrophysics is real; all of it is really confusing. But Interstellar is also the most straightforward story of Nolan’s career—more emotionally clear-cut than the story-within-a-story nesting-doll epics The Prestige and Inception, and unencumbered by the globo-metropolitan sociopolitics of his Dark Knight trilogy.

Spoilers from here—but if you feel like you need a roadmap going into Interstellar, then all you really need to know is this: The fifth element is love. READ FULL STORY

Matthew McConaughey and Jimmy Fallon throw footballs at each other's faces

Matthew McConaughey seems like the right celebrity to enlist to toss around a football, and that’s just what Jimmy Fallon did on the Tonight Show. Only their game of “Facebreakers,” named because they are aiming at panes of glass adorned with each other’s faces, was pretty competitive. Though McConaughey starts out strong, soon it’s Fallon’s to lose, and by the end, who’s keeping count anyway.

But the true joy of this is watching McConaughey talk to himself before a throw: “Got to settle down, McConaughey; hang on one second, babe.” Later McConaughey makes some Wolf of Wall Street-esque noises. Watch the video below. READ FULL STORY
