Goofs

When the RPG is used to shot down the alien craft it had its case remade in alien metal. RPG is a shaped charge weapon, on impact there is a flame that cuts through the metal, hence the case material is irrelevant. See more »

Four minutes of real sci-fi and thirty eight of torturing lack of intelligence and ideas.

Is this a joke or real conspiracy?

Slowly making us more and more dumb, the people behind this unbelievable broadcast transmissible spongy encephalopathy has bad intentions.

The script is structured to maintain our attention waiting for signs of human thinking and behavior, like the primitive human ancestors part of 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Mr Spielberg, are you an Alzheimer victim? Or simply believe that people can always be fooled with your old and obsolete tricks?

I want my time back. I want my cable tax back. I want my passion for the sci-fi back. I want my IQ back!

Your neuron killer is working, i can't find an elegant way to expose my thoughts, I'm just feeling an irresistible compulsion to repeat the same words over and over.
