OK let's try not to turn this into a do you/don't you love Interstellar discussion, because that's not what I am trying to do (it's practically as divisive as Prometheus).  I just have one point to make.  During the sail repair it was made to feel a bit tense and dramatic (aided by the score) and then towards the end the music came to a head and then suddenly and abruptly STOPPED and it cuts back to the female crew member aboard the ship that confirms everything is good now, or something.  I think this was influenced by INTERSTELLAR.  If you have seen Interstellar enough times or was paying close attention on your first viewing, or will no doubt know that Zimmer has those cues throughout the movie, in one scene in particular.  It is one of the many memorable things about that movie.  Build tension and drama using the score (which is just INCREDIBLE, btw) and then STOP!  Anybody notice what I am talking about?  I just felt that whole scene felt Interstellar-ish (in the sense that something COULD go wrong), with a little bit of Gravity thrown in (just because they were in spacesuits), but ultimately it wasn't until the music STOPPED and the way it cut back to the girl in the ship that immediately the voice inside my head said INTERSTELLAR.  In my opinion I actually liked this aspect regardless of whether I am right or wrong, because I LOVE Interstellar.  So all in all, AC wasn't all that bad. Lol.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion.  I watched Androids blow and finger each other's flutes.

Yes Interstellar is amazing! Christopher Nolan is my favorite director of all time!

Imagine an Alien movie directed by Nolan, he would never do it. I can't wait for Dunkirk and when Nolan finally directs a Bond movie!

I know what you are talking about. Yes suspesion was created and suddenly it stopped by cutting in to another scene.

Same thing happens in Prometheus, at the end of the scene where David activates the star map in the Juggernaut.
