Silent Running ★★★

I loved Nebraska, and was looking to see Bruce Dern back in his prime. This sci-fi is a really cool idea, and while the execution and finesse is lacking in a lot of areas, it's a fun watch. Dern is out plant-lover out on a greenhouse space station when earth has become overcrowded, and when Command tells his crew to demolish all the plant life they're carrying, Dern and his robots strike back. The acting is creepy, the robots are awesome, the music is weird, the visual effects are awesome. There's a mix of good and bad in here, but if you're an environmentalist, this is an important movie to watch.
