All opinions Bob. I'd like to see it and decide for myself. If it's anything like the book,it would be awesome.

Five stars across the board. I knew it would be I read the book. Brad Pitt makes an astounding performance.
In another war movie after Fury. The new Wild West. He is immediately in line for forbidden Planet.

I'm going to drag myself to the theater and watch it. Probably next week after the crowds thin out a bit.
I hope they didn't screw it up like they did with the Martian. Where the book was better than the movie.

Is the book by Jack Campbell? Is it a collection of stories as opposed to a novel?

James Gray writer, producer and movie director. Co written by Ethan Gross. It's like three stories combined
into one. Pete you know Latin, you should know where AD Astra came from and what it means.
Yes Jack Campbell did write the book. But I haven't seen the movie yet and Kin gives it an F-.
Hollyweird probably hacked it up like they have done with so many others.

Leaving the audience wondering what the heck is going on? Recent Examples: The Hunger games and
The Martian. With The Martian they left out an entire chapter.

Kin it might be like they were doing with Arrival. When all the liberal movie critics were calling it the best
Sci-Fi movie ever produced. I thought it was a real dud, giant octopuses talking to us with something
that looked like an ink plot. Another dud was Life, just another alien splatter film.

I got up Saturday morning still disgusted with myself for wasting $13 bucks to see that movie. The trailer had every scene the movie had capable of keeping a sane person awake.
