It certainly looks promising. A war in space. Even on the Moon.

It has some heavy hitter actors in it. Kin I can't find the book anywhere on Amazon. But I did read where it
had an expensive, hefty production budget. So it had better be able to make it big at the box office.

The critics who have seen it give it five stars. As good Sci-fi here and now, or in our near future. Not something that happe in a galaxy far, far away. It is us, that's how I like it. I'm burnt out on all the aliens, crazy robots, and all that crap.
" it is us". And we deserve the recognition. " That's why I like Gravity and the Martian. And it's every bit as exciting. It is the westerns revamped. Our conquest of a new horizon, and we are doing that now.
Interstellar was that way, to a point.

A D Astra . Critics are calling it a masterpiece. Five stars. I read the book, I knew they would.
No aliens , it's us against us in deep space.

A.O.C. for Commander of the Space Force. She seems "spacy" enough...

Irregardless, it has the potential of becomeing a Sci-Fi classic. I'm going to pay to go see it. I really liked the book.

No aliens, just us. The way I like it. I think that is finally catching on.

I read a review of it some weeks back and the dude said it was to much like a movie failure twenty years ago, the name of which I cannot remember but I knew I never saw it.
Now I have found most reviews are by some liberal twit so bad is good and good is bad.
