She's calling out to you, this is a call;   
this is a call out...

Can you resist the lure of adventure? The temptation of the stars; the call to arms, to save the rest; to be the best; to go where no one has before?

"Mankind was born on earth. It was never meant to die here." -Cooper

if plan A doesn't work, the alphabet has 25 more letters. stay cool.

And it's hard to dance with a devil on your back
And given half the chance would I take any of it back
It's a fine romance but it's left me so undone
It's always darkest before the dawn

it was never me... it was always about her.

a man travels the world over in search of what he needs, and returns home to find it.
- George Moore

Do not go gentle into that good night,

Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieve it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Symbolism of title screen: At the beginning of the movie, Coop is a baby in the sense that he is naïve and has jumped into this unfathomable journey without really comprehending the things to expect - much like a baby jumps headfirst (literally, in some cases) into their new life.
At the end of the movie, Brand is an old woman; emotionally, of course. Due to all of her experiences and losses throughout the movie, the person she once was is withered into an old soul.
The comparison that we have made between Cooper from Interstellar and our chosen characters, Harry from The Blue Sword, and Steve "Captain America" Rogers is that, while they all have different fears and different challenges to face, their motives set them apart. For Harry and Steve Rogers, their motives are first and foremost to serve their country and their people whereas, until the end, Cooper thinks solely for his children, and in a way, for himself. His only motive is to give his children a better life, and while that is a noble endeavor, he doesn't start thinking about the earth's entire population until the death of Dr. Brand; when they learn the truth. Sure he says that he wants to save the earth, but is he truly thinking for everybody? Scenes from Interstellar and Captain America that provide evidence for this juxtaposition are when Dr. Brand convinces Cooper by telling him to think of children compared with the Captain America movie where Steve jumps on the grenade at boot camp, to try and protect the others. This shows that Cooper has a more selfish reason for helping, where Steve is selfless with his act of bravery. However, the fact that Cooper is made to think of his children is what pushes him to go on the mission, and without that push, we believe that he wouldn't have agreed otherwise.
