Default Ad Astra

I really liked this.

Not sure what to make of the discrepancy between the positive critical reviews on RT and the "viewer" ratings, but I can see where if one were expecting an action/thriller type movie they'd be thrown for a loop.

Beautiful cinematography. Striking action sequences.

Didn't really love the ending and found the theme a touch hokey.

Still a good movie. Those user scores are puzzling. I guess maybe if you have the attention span of a Candy Crush addict then this movie might be too slow for you. It did feel like a LONG two hours, but overall it was more good than bad.

I have zero desire to see this movie. And I already feel like I've seen this movie at least 5 times and I didn't like those either. I like my space movies to have aliens or captain kirk in them. Or both.

So, I'll say, beautiful film. Very quiet. I liked the character's honesty revealed through voice over. Pitt has a great voice for voice over. I did really like it.

It would be as good at home on a big screen. I love Pitt, so I'm always up for the experience. The scene that stops the forward momentum on the way to Mars felt off, kind of disruptive, for me.

As soon as I read DaltWisney say, "Didn't love the ending..." I totally blanked out on the end. I just saw this film a couple days ago and I honestly can't remember how it ended, plot wise, but I did feel a little deflated.

It's a beautiful movie. Wish it had been in 3D. Brad is one heck of an actor.

Agree with Joe here, just nothing to this and I went in with literally no knowledge so didn't expect action and explosions.
