3022 (2019, dir. John Suits)

A long-haul mission space station crew fractures when Earth is destroyed. Talky SF pic that wants to be both Solaris and Gravity but can’t settle, trying for both thriller and psychological study to variable effect. Some effective use of a decent cast and limited resources, but the scattershot scripting fluffs the ending, which is a shame.

Here’s the trailer.

We Bought A Zoo (2011, dir. Cameron Crowe)

A widowed father buys a run-down zoo, and battles to have it open in time for the summer. Sunny-enough feelgood comedy/drama/romance with absolutely no surprises but some neat moments and an impeccable – if over-used – soundtrack.
