    ★★★½

    Popculture told me this was as bad as Waterworld. It's not. It's a Stuart Gordon/Jeffrey Combs sci fi flick starring Christopher Lambert. It's sad, gross, and imaginative. It's really good.

    I don't know what other people's issue is with the film, but mine is that it's hard to watch when all you can think about is that white Americans did this to poc slaves in real life. This happened in America's history, same daily torture, just with more victims and as in Fortress, it's over nothing. This makes the film less entertaining and more disturbing, sad, and uncomfortable.

    ★★½

    Our 2 year anniversary is coming so I figured this was an appropriate watch.

    Honeymoon is a fine addition to the honeymoon horror genre, it's not bad. It's not good either.

    I used to not understand the concept of chemistry between actors but I get it now. On a sliding scale the love birds from Paranormal Activity would be at one end and these idiots would be on the other. These actors clearly only met after the filming wrapped.

    As of it's release, I think this is what every alien film was supposed to be. What other films brush off in seconds this film builds into an ultimate message. Some films are designed to give us hope, I left the theater in thankful tears.

    ★★★★½

    I had a lot to say in a review while watching this, but honestly, I think I just want to say that my faith in modern film making is rekindled, and I'm thankful and happy, and really proud of this production. I have love for this film
