Storyline

In the 22nd century, seven explorers set out on a mission to earth's nearest sister planet, AURORA. Their mission - to survey and explore for future colonization. When their ship suddenly malfunctions, the crew is forced to crash land on the planet's surface, where crippling heat, poisonous water, and fierce storms threaten their lives at every turn. With a handful of supplies and little hope of rescue, their only option is a grueling four hundred mile trek to their ship's lost supply bunkers. To survive, the men will have to push their endurance to the limit and entrust their lives to a leader who will risk everything to succeed, no matter what the consequences. Written by Anonymous

I was at the Hollywood Premier for this...
30 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

So way back in a previous life, I spent a little time in Los Angeles trying to make some contacts and get into the TV & Film biz. One day, I found myself being invited to a premier of some new sci-fi movie. "Awesome!" I thought, that'll be a lot of fun and a great experience.

Aurora was that movie.

There was a party at the theater. There were drinks, food, the entire cast and crew smiling and meeting people. "This is really neat!" I thought. Eventually, we took our seats in the theater, this movie began to play, and what ensued was the most agonizing time I've ever spent in a movie theater. I simply could not believe that this boring, cliché, cheap, and unwatchable piece of garbage could actually get produced.

The movie ended, the lights came up, and what happened next was simply astonishing. The theater erupted in applause. Some people even stood up! I looked around and wondered if I was on crazy pills.

It was that moment that I realized this eternal truth.

Hollywood is completely full of bullshit.
