After recently watching the movie The Prestige I officially decided that Christopher Nolan, most notable for directing the Batman trilogy and Inception, is my favorite Hollywood director. I feel like his movies have the perfect blend of being intellectually challenging without being obnoxiously high art. His next film Interstellar is not due to come out until late 2014, but allow me to get a jump start on the hype machine. Wikipedia describes the synopsis as:
Awesome! I’m going to love it no matter what. My unabashed love for even really bad sci-fi movies will be a topic for a future article.
So in the meantime I am going to nerd up on theoretical physics and wormholes and all that good stuff by reading Kip Thorne’s Black Holes and Time Warps: Eintein’s Outrageous Legacy, which wikipedia describes as “a landmark book for non-scientists”.
