Interstellar grossed more than $50 million at the box office during opening weekend, but a space odyssey isn't a true hit until you get the Neil deGrasse Tyson stamp of approval.
The astrophysicist and sometimes movie critic shared his take on Interstellar on Twitter on Sunday. Save for a few nitpicking moments, he praised the science behind the Christopher Nolan film — though the plot was a different story.
The Cosmos host even appeared on CBS to discuss the science behind the plot, claiming that while the film is definitely science fiction, the movie managed to interpret and understand the concepts well.
Tyson also had a few gentle reminders for the Twitter masses: 1. Stay the hell away from black holes. 2. He's no expert at film critiques.
In #Interstellar: They explore a planet near a Black Hole. Personally, I’d stay as far the hell away from BlackHoles as I can— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) November 10, 2014
REMINDER: Never look to me for opinions on new films. All I do is highlight the science one might or might not find in them.— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) November 10, 2014
You hear that, Gravity? You can stop stressing out now.
