Dear Sir,

I am writing to ask for an explanation. I bought a laptop computer a week ago from your store and it perfomed well.

However, one week after non-stop usage, I encountered a problem when I was trying to turn it on. I have recharged it as recommended, but it does not start. I hope you will look into this matter and find a solution. Please contact me to keep me informed. Thank you.

Yours faithfully,

Interstellar Movie Review

On the one hand, I was impressed with Christoper Nolan’s Interstellar. The movie has wonderful visuals that attempted to bring though astrophysics to a general audience. However, the Dark Knight Rises director’s space adventure failed to deliver, even though I was trying to see past its scientific shortfalls.

The story begins in the future on a dying Earth. There is no time for space exploration, life on Earth is all about fighting disease, hunger and crippling climate change. In general, the casting and everyone’s acting were emotional and good.

Intersetallar missed the opportunity to display brilliant science fiction and that is why I am annoyed. It has potency, but that potential was squandered unnecessarily.
