Interstellar is a British-American 2014 science fiction film directed by Christopher Nolan. Filming commenced in late 2013 in Alberta, Iceland, and Los Angeles at some time in the future and tells the story of Cooper, an astronaut who travels through a wormhole in search of a new home for humanity.
In Interstellar, Cooper and other astronauts, is tied to his farming land with his daughter Murph and son Tom. As devastating sandstorms ravage Earths crops, the people of Earth realize their life here is coming to an end as food begins to run out. Eventually stumbling upon a NASA base near Cooper’s home, he is asked to go on a daring mission with a few other scientists into a wormhole because of Cooper’s scientific intellect and ability to pilot aircraft unlike the other crew members. In order to find a new home while Earth decays, Cooper must decide to either stay, or risk never seeing his children again in order to save the human race by finding another habitable planet. There is a lot to like about the film: the film’s scientific accuracy, the soundtrack, the visual effects and the performances from Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway. The only disappointing element is that the film is too long.
Although it is not perfect, Interstellar is a very entertaining film. We highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys science fiction and emotive stories.

It is a story written by its own main character, Clint Eastwood, in the USA. The main character, Chris Kyle, a USA Army sniper who came to kill 255 insurgents from Iraq, but there is more of him than just a good sniper.
Chris Kyle is sent to Iraq in order to protect his army companions. He saves many lives and gains himself the name of ‘’legend’’. However, his reputation also grows thanks to several enemies that have put a price for his family to pay in their country. Chris completes four missions in Iraq, personifying the creed emblem of the SEAL ‘’no man is left behind’’. When he goes back to his wife, Taya Renae, he discovers that what he cannot leave behind is the war.
We found it a very hard film, which expresses a very real way of the suffering endured by soldiers in a war zone, and inhuman acts such as using a child as a weapon. In general it is a hard film to watch that shows you the hardness of psychological side of the war.

50 SHADES OF GRAY
50 Shades of Gray was directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson and starring Christian Grey (Charlie Hannam) and Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson), is based on the first part of the erotic trilogy written by El James, the publication of this first part was on June 20, 2011 and the release of the film was on February 14, 2015.
The film is about a relationship between a recently graduated girl (Anastasia Steele) and a young businessman (Christian Grey). The plot is based on erotic scenes with sexual elements which emphasizes discipline, submission and sadism. Anastasia Steele went to do an interview with Christian Grey, replacing her friend, and he fell in love with her when he saw her lying on the floor and decided he wanted her to be his submissive, because Christian entered the world of sado when she was 15. He proposes a contract to be his submissive slave but she doesn’t sign it because she is not entirely sure if she is interested. The story ends with an aggressive scene where Christian hits her with all his strength and she started to cry. This end allows for a sequel.
This film was shot in Vancouver, near Washington, and the place was not a great choice for shooting since recording had repeatedly to stop because of high temperatures, and the scenes of rain also had problems because the people didn’t enjoy artificial rain on their properties because it caused damage. During filming there was a disagreement between the writer and the director because the writer wanted to change several things of the script.
This film is not perfect and is not suitable for all ages because of sexual scenes. Thescript is very simple. As for the soundtrack, it had a great success for the spectators. We recommend the film to people who have read the book.
