I watch TV.
I watch Movies.
Therefore, I am the foremost expert on everything.
Great movie, although somewhat rushed towards the end
This movie was definitely great, especially considering it had the feel of a low-budget movie. The dialogue between characters was just like you would expect from real people, which added to the credibility of the story line. The technology used and the events that transpired also seemed remarkably believable, making it seem like the garage in which the movie starts could be right next door to you.
My biggest problem with the movie is that they seemed to have crammed a lot of the major plot into the end of the movie, possibly explaining it to fast for the average person to grasp during the first watch. I go the impression that they were running out of money during the end of production, or thought the film was too long and wanted to condense the end, but I wish they had made it 30 minutes longer or so, to allow the remainder of the movie to unfold on its own. Imagine if a movie like "Fight Club" had it's last 30 minutes packed into 5 minutes. I only hope they will release some sort of extended version, or directors cut with more "movie" at the end instead of "explanation"
I really liked the concepts introduced regarding "recycling" the machines, their self-isolation, and their exploration of possibilities, even if only verbally.
Red Dwarf (1992)
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
I just managed to see the pilot to the US version of Red Dwarf, which apparently was never screened. It is almost entirely the same dialog as the first episode of the original series. There's lots of recycled footage, in fact, I didn't see any original effects. The only major difference, except for different actors, is that they introduced Kryten from the beginning. Kryten was still played by Robert Llewellyn. There was also a funny animation of the cat's evolution. I can't imagine how small the budget must have been on this pilot. I think real Red Dwarf fans wouldn't like it because it's just a rip off of the UK version. Non-fans wouldn't like it because they failed to bridge the Atlantic comedy gap, which I assume was the point of trying to make a US version of the series. If this pilot is anything like what the US version would have been, then I guess I'm glad it failed. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
