An alien civilisation makes a series of contacts with life on Earth; one provokes a space mission. Still-extraordinary piece of mainstream SF with philosophical ambitions, plus a technical marvel. Essential viewing, even if it remains impenetrable to some.
The former stars of a Star Trek-like TV show are mistaken for genuine space heroes by an alien race searching for saviours. Three Amigos! / A Bug’s Life redux, perhaps, but with excellent casting, a sense of fun, and affection for genre and conventions (of both kinds) throughout.
Whether needed or not, this origin story is an enjoyable romp through the Star Wars backlot. Solid action and decent performances from Ehrenreich and Glover as Han and Lando, and ably supported by Harrelson, Newton and Bettany. Good popcorn fodder. 😀
Want another opinion? Here’s Eamonn’s opinion.
A Han Solo origin tale. After a clunky and stagey first act, this heist western SF hybrid finds its feet, even though its nominal lead is a black hole around which much more interesting support stuff occurs. Inconsequential.
A couple search for a fabled post-apocalyptic human city, while a self-aware AI system tracks them and it. Secondhand SF with many borrowings: The Hunger Games, Nightbreed and later Terminator sequels principal among them. Poor.
The Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy team up with others to prevent Thanos obtaining all the infinity stones. Dayglo all-star Marvel tag-team mash-up. For series fans only; tho it’s kinda fun while it’s on, CG fights get dull. TV, not a movie.
