I wanted to post my thoughts on a movie, and thought, I should make up a thread that can go further than just one movie. So I introduce the Sci-Fi Genre Movies Review & Discussion Thread. The film, as you may have guessed, is a current theatre release, Red Planet. IMHO, Red Planet sucked. The only thing that made it not a total wash for me was Val Kilmer's presence. B/c of Val's stellar acting? Not quite. Actually, it's simply b/c I happen to find him handsome and sexy. The movie seems to be an episode of "Survivor" from the future, that takes place on Mars. That's right, 500 years from now, we will not have evolved past "Survivor". Frightening, isn't it? Unfortunately, you aren't feeling very clear on who to root for, b/c they haven't really produced much empathy between you and the characters. There are other problems with the movie, too numerous to mention. Let me just say this, "Wait for the video." The GOOD thing besides Val Kilmer, is the navigator robot. I believe the robot is nearly 100% CGI, and it is very cool. I don't know if it's modeled after something currectly in use, but it the movie it works Great. So, everyone please join in with your Sci-Fi Genre Movies comments, reviews and flibbertygibberissh! Or start a new thread for a new genre!
