The Theory of Everything or more commonly called by me, The Theory of Nothing (not because it is bad, I just got the name confused a couple of times), is basically the same thing anyway. If you have a belief in everything, then you also have strong thoughts about the concept of nothing. Or maybe you are just a native speaker of the language we like to call Aramcon (look it up, it’ll be big someday – well, give it some time).
I sadly missed The Fault in Our Stars earlier this year, so The Theory of (Nothing) Everything is hands down my favorite love story of the year. I wouldn’t know if Fault is realistic or not, but the best about (Nothing) Everything is that it it realistic about love. I may be getting a head of myself though because the genius of Stephen Hawking portrayed by Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables) expressed in this film – why the fuck are you acting in that Jupiter Ascending trash (I don’t think I’m speaking too soon, it looks terrible)?
Hawking is an amazing character and Eddie is one of my frontrunners for best actor of the year. The concept of earth being a small part of an extensive galaxy of many earths just like ours is scary as shit, but it only makes sense if you beleive in God or not – I mean who has the power to create the entire universe? God, duh, but science, but who created science, science? uh… well I’d have to say some higher being, but never mind, I love all religions and this is not a religious blog so I will shut up.
Back to the love story. Stephen and Jane were completely and utterly meant for each other, but can a woman be asked to stay with an incapacitated man for the rest of her life? Wake up call to all the hopeless romantics out there, I don’t want to burst your bubble – she can’t and she won’t. The fact that she made it thirty years and that they both completely understood what each other’s thoughts were coming from is what makes this one of the greatest love stories of all time. Jane also belonged with Jonathan (Charlie Cox, Killing Bono) and anyone who says that humans are only supposed to be with one other human, needs to enter the real world of relationships. Stephen and Jane had a perfect relationship in humanity terms at least and Felicity Jones (Like Crazy) too deserves her spot as a nominee (even though Reese deserves to win).
