The first manned mission to Mars goes awry. Straightforward SF disaster/bodycount movie with the usual nods (astronaut called Bowman etc), though more contrivances than usual. Seriously, guys, don’t take a robot with its “military” mode enabled.
If a shaky camera, lots of night vision, constant cries of, “What the hell was that!?” and people being dragged away into the dark are your thing, then you might like this film. If you don’t, there’s not much else to hold your attention here. 😦
A deep space colony vessel investigates a strange transmission from an Earth-like world. More Prometheus than Alien, this series entry unevenly balances monster horror and teenagery philosophical musings. Odd, but not uninteresting.
Supporting actors and extras reminisce about working on Star Wars, and the impact that the film and its fan culture has had on their lives. A bittersweet little documentary which makes a minor though not-uninteresting contribution to the movie’s fandom.
Still Shyamalan’s best, this is an excellent slow burn as Willis’ character comes to terms with the fact that he is something more than human. Strong performances all round, this is a salient counterpoint to the overblown superhero films of today. 😀
A back to form thriller from M.Night that showcases an excellent central performance from McAvoy, where three teenage girls are kidnapped and await the arrival of The Beast, personality 24. This is a solid thriller and worth your time. 😀
Interesting kidnapping gone wrong supernatural tale that is almost scuppered by some poor acting from the supporting cast. Saved, though, by two decent performances from the leads. Not amazing, but will pass the time. 😐
