Crop And Save
The very beginning of the movie I found to be rather boring, first, with the fact that you can barely hear what they are saying, then it finally gets loud enough to hear. It's just boring until Ryan gets hit and tumbles out into space.
Then once she's been on her own and trying to get to the Chinese station with no luck, I got really sick of the failure, one after the other. But then when she is crashing to earth with the rest of the Chinese station, it's obvious that she barely misses the land, but much of the station does hit land. We see nothing of this, and nothing of her being rescued, or even where she is. As she's coming down, they show part of the land mass but it looks nothing like anywhere on earth. Same with most of the movie, except during one conversation in space, we can see the Red Sea and Sinai Peninsula.
I realize it's specifically meant to be 90 minutes long to be the same as how long it takes for space debris to orbit earth, but they didn't have to do that. They could have at least shown a helicopter coming to get her, and saying the location. That would have made a huge difference in satisfaction at the end of the movie. Unless it was a teaser for a sequel, but this seems like a stand alone movie to me.
I love this movie!
How can anyone hate a movie with Gary Busey, an adorable little dog, cute kids, a beautiful family who love each other and God, and they get by on trust in God? It's a beautiful story! So, low budget or not, they did an excellent job at making it! The only thing I didn't like about it was the guards and how over-the-top dumb they were! They could have been made intelligent and made for a good chase scene for drama effect or something like that. And the music was nice, but it kept repeating throughout the movie. It would have been nice to have more really good songs. Gary Busey's acting is great, as is everyone else's. Jillian Clare is wonderful! And so is her on-screen brother! It is simply a great movie, and on the extras, on the interview with Gary Busey, I see exactly why he wanted this movie made,and that is an extremely special circumstance! What an amazing guy!
The Langoliers (1995)
I love this movie so much! All of the sci-fi and mystery of it is exactly what I love in books and movies. In this feature, I first saw it on TV and then I read the book. The book is very good as well, but it gives out much more information, describes things in more detail, which in some ways is good, but for me, when it comes to the gore with Mr. Toomey, I would rather not know so much. So in that case, watching the movie is much more preferred than reading it in the book.
I gave this movie a 9 because I love it so much, but I just have one problem with it. There was some especially terrible acting, mostly by Christopher Collet who played Albert Kaussner. In many instances, he would overact his lines, and/or his lines were just written very poorly for him. I think for the most part though, the other main characters did pretty well. Not the best acting, but it was good.
