    I loved most of this movie. There are a lot of things at play here and most of them land. Controlling your own destiny, dealing with men who have masculinity issues and are abusive. How we become oblivious to those around us and how we hurt them when we become self consumed. But there was just a bit too many loose ends and plot issues that took me out of it that I feel like would have made this a much better movie all around.

    I don’t know if it was my mood, but I really enjoyed this movie. I was not expecting much and didn’t really know much besides seeing a trailer. Sterling K. Brown can lead any movie he wants. Dave Bautista can can have one liners and be awesome in any movie he wants. Jodie Foster was great, but kind of out of place. Goldblum is always nice to see. Quinto was laughably terrible, like, what was that?

    I gave my six year old son control of the remote and told him to pick a movie. So we sat through this abomination. I have since put him up for adoption.

    This is how you make a sci-fi movie. Wow. Beautifully shot. The sound design and the visuals are what make this movie. To say my jaw was on the ground during the entire bear scene is a massive understatement. It’s confusing, it’s brilliant, and it’s complicated but above all else, it’s an amazing damn sci-fi film.
