Goofs

USAF personnel are shown outdoors in uniform but not wearing hats. Regulations require all service personnel to wear headgear ("covers") outdoors, which must be removed when indoors. However, when USAF personnel are located on the flightline (aircraft operations area), the wear of headgear is strictly prohibited as they could easily be ingested into aircraft intakes causing major damage to engines and other mechanics. In addition, base commanders have the authority to declare a "no hat/no salute" parameter for celebrations/receptions on the flightline even if nearby aircraft are stationary and powered down.

Quotes

[first lines]
Brian Gilcrest: [narrating] There was a time I knew everything in the sky. Every satellite, every constellation, souvenirs of space walks and astronauts and rockets launched by NASA in the '60s. As a kid, I looked up and felt the future. It belonged to me.

A farce
9 August 2015 | by VanillaalmondSee all my reviews

This movie is somehow all over the place, threads begin but do not end, connections exist but how and why is not explained. I felt like I was watching a movie that is great inside the head of the writer/director but he knows the story to well and forgets to tell us half of it.It's like it is trying to be everything for everybody and while doing that failing in all aspects. The whole military plot thing is strange, lots of people are just there and we are never told why or even who they are.

This is not a feel good movie, it is a feel strange movie leaving you with lots of questions, the main one being why?
