Interstellar Versus Jupiter Ascending

Interstellar is neoliberal pseudoscientific dreck for techbros, Jupiter Ascending is gorgeous space-operatic schlock for queergeeks. Make your choice, and so be known.

OK, so I was perceptually biased.

IMDB sez:
In a bright and colorful future, a young destitute
caretaker gets targeted by the ruthless son of a
powerful family who lives on a planet in need of
a new heir. . .

So I read this as "a planet in need of new hair".

It's all your fault.

Wasn't that the plot of Barbarella?

Also, you obviously have never quite recovered from the trauma of Natasha's dynamic hair management.
