    I would do a review but it's been out for a long time. It's a great movie. I do have some questions.

    1. How did those 5 astronauts build that habitat area?

    2. Where in the fuck did they get cranes, hooks, backhoes, and all the other shit he conveniently had?

    I loved the movie to death but it required quite the suspension of belief.

    I liked "Starman," by David Bowie being part of the soundtrack.

    I think in that reality there had been several missions up there and they were just the latest of several crews who'd been doing projects up there

    You suspend disbelief, not belief.

    I really tried to stop myself from correcting you, but I just couldn't. :facepalm:

    The disco subplot was played out

    Some IRL record company was behind crowbarring that idiotic horseshit in there :mad:


    Unless you guys pwn me by saying the disco was in the book :chair:

    I hated that, except for "Don't Leave Me This Way," which they could have played more of but didn't.

    Then when the redhead said, "Hold on, cowboy, we're both military," I mean who talks like that?

    It sounded like a chop socky translation of English.

    'Don't leave me this way' is clever, yes.

    I'm rethinking everything now

    This movie sucked!! Way overrated!

    Number1 Horrible casting. Kristen Wig was way out of her element and the dude from community sucked, too. Michael Pena was god awful, how does that dude get work. I liked Matt Damon but he did a horrible job, I could of cared less if he lived or died. In fact his character was so annoying I was hoping he would die

    Number 2 Whos idea was it to try and be funny? None of the jokes were funny. Like the joke where the dude from community spit his drink in the trash can with holes in it then slipped on it.

    horrible, horrible move

    Big faux pas too when he said he hadn't had a shower in a year in a half when he had just stepped out of the shower that morning.
