These next several paragraphs are going to deal specifically with the ending of the new Christopher Nolan film Interstellar. If you have not seen the movie I strongly recommend you not read this as it will reveal some major spoilers.
You have been warned!
Review by Nate
In 1968 Roger Ebert characterized 2001: A Space Odyssey as a film that “fails on the human level but succeeds magnificently on a cosmic scale.” I imagine this was due to the thorny task of blending an epic tale of space travel with the kind of intimacy necessary for a human connection. Almost five decades later, Christopher Nolan has thrown his hat in the ring to create his own space odyssey.
Actor James Garner passed on July 19, 2014 at the age of 86. When I jump on IMDb, he is accredited with an incredible 95 movies; which includes roles as an actor and voice. As the writers at LTBM discussed Mr. Garner’s passing, it quickly became apparent that I had the most knowledge about and experience with his movies. (Another reflection of my age.) Having gone through the list, I have seen a little over 75% of the things that Mr. Garner has been in. It is my pleasure to offer the following as a small glimpse into the movie life of Mr. James Garner as I touch on some of the more prominent roles that I have enjoyed.
