You guys ARE missing the point, and you know, it makes me a bit sad. This is a movie. It's not a graduate lecture, it's not a science lesson, it's not howto nor is it a documentary. It's a movie! Movies are not there to be BELIEVED. Movies, and books before them, are entertainment, they are an expression of our humanity, they allow us to communicate things that reality doesn't do so well. I know it's not scientifically correct, and you know what. GOOD! I've been studying hard for the last few years and I came here to be entertained.
I read some reviews here before I watched it because I hadn't heard of the movie before. All the negative reviews actually made me decide to watch it, because you guys are the same guys who hate movies like The Life Aquatic and The Big Lebowski and all those other great movies I love! Hehe!
It's a charming story, the cast is great, and damnit, Billy Bob is launching a homemade rocket like a boss! Haters gonna hate, and more power to you I guess, but some of us still have imaginations, and hearts, that like to be exercised from time to time.
The rest of you can go watch, hell, I don't know, whatever boring realistic crap it is that you watch. Have fun, suckers! <3
Exactly! I've always thought this movie would've been better if Billy Bob could shout his name backward five times and conjure a dwarf from the Lord of the Rings dimension. These dwarves would be crazy gifted with any sort of machinery, and could help him finish the rocket in days. Also, Legolas would randomly fly out of Billy Bob's mind riding that dog thing from Neverending Story. He could keep all the dwarves in some sort of subterranean bunker, where they all become irate but never actually rebel against him.
After all, it's just a movie, right? If Kevin Costner randomly shot flames out of his ass every time he saw a baseball player, the movie would be just as good, right? Because, it's just a movie, right?
