Goofs

The ship supposedly catches up with radio waves broadcast from Earth in the past. However, their objective was only 18.7 light years away. Especially since they had only begun the trip, they should not have received any broadcasts older than a few weeks or months old. The broadcasts they received range from 1927 to 1987, which should have been 101-161 light years from Earth by the year 2088, more than five times the distance to Demeter. Also, because light cannot vary speed, they would not have caught up to all the broadcasts at once. The broadcasts would have gradually gotten older as they traveled further from Earth. (Additional note: There is no reason to suspect that the intercepted radio signals were original broadcasts; although that is the aside made in the movie. These could be rebroadcasted (reruns) programs from Earth on the same day in the same spatial direction.) See more »

Love this movie
14 April 2004 | by (Minnesota, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of my favorite movies. I watched it every night while growing up. My sister and I would sneak downstairs to watch the movie when our mom was asleep. It has a great plot and even though the movie is starting to be dated it still could be plausible today. Most of the stars in the movie are not real well known however they did a very good job portraying their characters. The whole concept of the movie is something that could really happen today if we don't become more environmentally conscious.

Admiral Beasley following them shows that some people have an ulterior motive for doing the things they do, and we as citizens can do something about the circumstances that we are put in. The conspiracy aboard Jake's ship with Vance Arthur shows that people can change from who we know them to be, as Sally Arthur (Vance's sister) finds out in the movie. However my favorite parts in the movie are the first love experiences that are experienced between Beanie and Luz; and then the hint towards this with Capt. Jonathan Hays and Sally Arthur when he admits to his first crush to her. Anyway that is just my opinion.
