Seems like a smart version of "Interstellar"


One where there is an actual threat to Earth instead of dust

Ugh...Interstellar sucked so hard. This definitely looks better.

reply

you are definitely on drugs. This movie had nothing spectacular. The space scenes and planets were so blend visually. Neptune was a wreck.

reply

So blend? What does that mean? Are you on drugs?

This was a boring subject titled the first time you posted it.

"Interstellar" was a smart version of just about any other space-related movies of recent years, but to enjoy it requires paying attention.

Harumph. As in "I didn't get a harumph out of that guy". I agree. "Gravity" was so unreal but people liked it. "Interstellar" was far better, and thought provoking.

Interstellar: Science crew trusted with trillion dollar ship with a lot of lives and time invested in them decide that "love" is the answer when faced with a tricky problem. B- (generous grade)

Ad Astra: Anti matter coming directly at us from Neptune; Oh that was just something those guys were doing, never mind the plot. Plot developments from, apparently, some other movie show up in the middle. Travel time to each destination like 2000% shorter than reality. Smart. C grade mess of a movie.

And almost an hour shorter.

Actually Arrival was a smart version of Interstellar.

reply

Comparing Interstellar and Arrival is apples and oranges. Both were great by the way.

reply

Interstellar is an OK movie, but it didn't draw me in like Arrival did. Arrival is one of those movies that only come around on occasion. It was superb.

reply

Interstellar was much better than Ad Astra, Gravity and The Martian.

I was quite underwhelmed with Ad after the good reviews, but then again I should know better than to trust today’s reviewers, especially after they eviscerated Rambo: Last Blood which was great.

Funny how the people that always post "Smart" threads are usually dumber than a box of rocks.

reply

What?? There is nothing smart about this movie. It's just two hours of schlock. At least with Interstellar, they made an effort to accurately portray the physics involved.
