6/10: Meh but a solid Meh
Friday, July 9, 2021

This is a German/Swiss Sci-fi movie set somewhere between 100 and 150 years in the future. The wealthy elite escaped an earth where disasters and climate change made the planet uninhabitable. However things aren't going as planned on Kepler 209 either so they hope to return after 2 generations.They've sent a first mission but lost contact so they sent a second mission to try again and to find out what happened with the first mission.The production level is excellent, this never feels cheap or low budget and it can hold it's own to flicks with double the budget. Acting, score, pace, directing, editing, etc is all at a professional level. Critics who do this for a living can probably give a more nuanced view but never was it so bad that it bothered me or broke the illusion.This is a dark and at times depressing film with a minimal story that reminded...

1/10: A bit touching at certain point, but overall full of boring conversation, and annoying overuse scene! Not recommended
Monday, August 16, 2021

This film start with a space pod crash into the water, and a female astronaut "Blake" swim out to the surface scene! As turnout, this film is about Blake need to save her father, and a bunch of rebels from the capture of a villain "Gibson"! Entire film full of boring conversation, and annoying overuse scene! Such as, overuse of the running scene, overuse of the walking scene, overuse of the peeking scene, overuse of the staring scene, overuse of the calling names scene, overuse of the arguing scene, overuse of the blackout scene, overuse of the injection scene, overuse of the climbing scene, and overuse of the eating scene! Make the film unwatchable! Barely intense scene is, Gibson shot at Munay to kill her! At the end, after Gibson been killed, Blake talking with her brother "Neil"! The children back to their family at the very end! That's it! Another disappointed film

7/10: visually pleasing dystopian (if derivative) art-house sci-fi
Tuesday, July 6, 2021

Is it reminiscent of other sci-fi dystopian flicks that came before it? Yes, but so what. Everything in life is a bit derivative or reminiscent of something else. Personally, I enjoyed the casting, the actors and the acting, combined with the cinematography...as an artistic take on the genre. A bit of an art-house indie version of a sci-fi trope if you will, by comparison with big budget studio productions, which sometimes fall short of late by relying on one or two big name actors to carry them. Aside from Iain Glen, I wasn't familiar with the cast, but they not only performed well, but were relatable and won me over. I didn't mind that the script was light on plot and dialog, but the ending felt rushed. I'd rather they'd have taken their time and added 20 minutes or so to the final cut. Still, the imagery was lovely and the main...

6/10: For the Many
Monday, September 13, 2021

Civilization made the Earth uninhabitable so a group of elites left for Kepler 209 a planet that takes about 10 years to travel. After a couple of generations, sterilization threatens the human race on Kepler 209. Tucker (Sope Dirisu) and Louise Blake (Nora Arnezeder) travel back to Earth to see if it is habitable after they do not hear back from Ulysses I. Spoiler: Don't get attached to Tucker. There is a small section that is almost like an ugly Water World that is habitable and there is an indigenous population there that don't like astronauts. And then there are the raiders. Blake is faced with the question of rebuilding a civilization that destroyed the Earth or to live simply.Predictable science fiction. Reminded me of a Star Trek episode with a similar theme. The biggest negative is the ugly setting.Guide: F-word. No sex or nudity

3/10: A "Doctor Who" movie
Thursday, July 8, 2021

Why are movie writers so bad at research? SpaceX and Blue Origin are capable of landing a space craft without a parachute, but for some reason, in about 160 years, they can't do this?A small tepid story, which might have worked well as a Dr Who episode. It falls short of its goal to challenge and entertain for those who believe Sci-Fi is about a hopeful future, not some dystopian hell hole where man is always the bad guy. This idea that primitive man is somehow better off is purely a Victorian fantasy for wealthy elites who have a Gaia Cult fetish. The Climate Change trope is done to death and has become a tagline. Maybe they should frame it as Earth after "Build Back Better" was implemented, with Schaub stroking a white cat.If you're having trouble sleeping, give this a watch before bed time
