Enjoyed it. Not one I would watch multiple times, but at least once or twice.

I enjoyed it.

My question is you would think they would have had some kids. Just a thought.

I thought the same thing PR64. Then the wife and I talked about it- would have been weird. Kids would have been late in thier 80s, no chance of romantic intrests, etc.

Finally watched this Saturday night and really enjoyed it, was not what I expected at all which was some sort of alien/horror angle which thankfully was not the case.

My wife said she'd die being stuck alone on a huge spaceship but I told her it sounded like heaven; no one to bother me, I have the place to myself, what's NOT to like! Big Grin

As long as they had an armory, range and unlimited ammo!

What do you mean by that? That the movie wasn't 99.999% action sequences and shit blowing up?

Thank God for that, it seems like modern movies overdo this instead of developing characters and plot.

I've really liked her and had a mild celebrity crush, but until now she's played young roles (Hunger Games, X-Men), or a charactr too old for her (American Hustle).

I enjoyed it quite a bit. It could have been better, but what movie is that not true for, especially in today's Hollywood?

I think they should have played more with time.

SPOILERS SPOILERS
Pratt should have been awake much longer before making his choice, and I think his time in exile after should also have been longer, or at least *felt* like longer. I'd also like to have seen a bit more exploring at the end of what they'd done, rather than just the quick reveal.



I agree with you about JL's roles with one caveat. Though she was playing a younger role, I think possibly her best performance was her breakout role in Winter's Bone. If you haven't seen it, do so. Fantastic movie imho.

One thing I noticed about the cool, futuristic tool belt that Jim Preston had was that it was Kydex!

I'm clearly in the minority. I picked this from Red Box for a movie night at a friend's house. We got through maybe an hour. I then said how frickin' boring that movie was. No one hesitated to agree to cut our losses. This is from someone who has a huge crush on Lawrence and her blue eyes and is quite jealous that's she's seriously dating a 48 y.o. director. It's unlikely I'll give it a second chance to watch what I missed. Well, maybe on Netflix, just for her eyes.

I really liked it, but my wife didn't. She got very bored.

I guess the whole engineering aspect of everything really appealed to me...knowing something is wrong and needing to figure it out.

Also, having your own personal bartender was pretty sweet. The only bummer would've been not being able to have a decent breakfast for all that time. If there's one thing I gotta have, it's a good breakfast and great coffee!

I agree that it would have made the movie more interesting, but I enjoyed it either way.

Agreed. I like that rearrangement idea, especially the suggested alternate "Twilight Zone" ending: Jim dies as the "bad guy", with Aurora still mad at him for dooming her, but after several years alone, Aurora is faced with the same choice of ending her loneliness by waking someone else up.

Just watched it tonight. Really liked it. I never once got bored even for a second. Fascinating movie for me all the way through. I wanted more. It helps I'm fond of both actors but it was just interesting.

Don't think I'm spoiling anything at this point but if so stop reading.



Pretty sure she never went into suspended animation pod in the infirmary. She decided to live the life with Jim. So why have the scene where he tells her about it and that she is going to wake up in 88 years and write her book and do what she set out to do.

We liked it despite its lack of gratuitous violence, sex, foul language, and loud soundtrack.

Redemption. The chance to correct an unforgivable act if she wanted to take it. It was important to the movie for the happily ever after ending to be plausible.
