Interstellar is a big hit for Paramount. Make no mistake about it. Despite mixed reviews, very few have disagreed with the opinion that the sci-fi epic is Christopher Nolan's most visually impressive project to date and the box-office numbers have been strong. However, not everyone has been so enamoured with all of the technical achievements of this blockbuster.

Interstellar'Interstellar' has been another success for Nolan, though some audiences have complained about the sound quality in certain scenes

However, reacting to the disquiet, Nolan told the Hollywood Reporter, "We made carefully considered creative decisions.There are particular moments in this film where I decided to use dialogue as a sound effect, so sometimes it's mixed slightly underneath the other sound effects or in the other sound effects to emphasize how loud the surrounding noise is. It's not that nobody has ever done these things before, but it's a little unconventional for a Hollywood movie."

The criticism comes just three years after Nolan was forced to re-do the sound mix in The Dark Knight Rises after test audiences complained they could not understand Tom Hardy's villainous Bane.

"The Dark Knight Rises prologue was really great, especially when Bane spoke the soon-to-be-classic line: 'Mmrbl ffrmrff hmrbblfmm,'" famously said one fan on Twitter.
