    ★★★★

    The harrowing space stuff gets 5 stars, the slightly clichéd family/biopic stuff gets 3.

    ★★★½

    What a vexing movie. I'll have to sit with this one a while. There's this odd (but interesting) tension between the straightforward, almost cliched, half - daddy issues in space, Roy's monologuing, improbable gambits that always work out, neglected astronaut's wife - and weirder, stranger details - $125 for blanket and pillow on the flight to the moon, rover chase with moon pirates, feral space monkeys, Natasha Lyonne cameo... How and if the two halves fit together I haven't quite figured out yet but it's an intriguing duality.
