Ad Astra

So this is what the Space Force is supposed to look like.

Pitt is on a roll.

RT has it at 84%, which isnít surprising since in addition to Pitt it has Ruth Negga (Tulip from Preacher), Tommy Lee Jones, Liv Tyler and Donald Sutherland.

There's a separate clip with the moon rover scene that looks outrageous. I might actually pay for the IMAX ticket on this one.

She can certainly handle an antitank launcher.

People I know that have seen it say it's one of the worst movies they've ever seen. It currently has a 56% fan rating on RT.

Just saw it. Save it for Netflix. Movie had so much potential, but they kind of blew it. It was like 10 people all had different ideas for the movie and nobody could agree on a story line.

Oddly enough, the basic premise and narration immediately reminded me of Apocalypse Now (except Apocalypse Now is actually a good movie).

Saw it yesterday. Not bad. For those of you old enough to remember "2001, a Space Odyssey", it has that look and feel. The acting was subdued, and it looked like they borrowed from Arthur C. Clarke's books quite a bit.

We saw it at a dinner theater, so it was enjoyable for us.

Article I read Pitt's said he wished had not made, been in the movie, an walked out of the screening of it. I see if I can find the article.
