Did You Know?


Reef was puppeteered with a simple rig that had only two functions: one to move him around and another to turn him left to right. All of the motion graphics on the display, and the red lens flares in his eye, were added digitally, except for one shot in the caves where a practical red light was used. This red light was a bicycle safety light owned by Nathan Dodd, the boom operator. See more »


Tobias Hatch: You know what I hate about prison? You throw a wolf into a cage, and all you're gonna get is an angry wolf. Throw him in with a whole pack, and they just make each other worse. But, if he comes out of there clean, do you think that means he was fixed?
Kye Cortland: No.
Tobias Hatch: It' means he didn't belong there in the first place. You see, the real bad wolves, they can't be fixed.

Rocky start but then really worth the watch
26 February 2016 | by michaelltfSee all my reviews

If you like Sci Fi and you can still appreciate smaller productions, despite being spoiled by the excess of big budgets, then you will like this movie. Having said this, the production in this movie is great. After the introduction the story slowly develops, everything about the movie picks up a lot in the second half, it becomes intriguing after a Kafka-esque twist and it really becomes an enjoyable watch.

With regards to previous reviews - Expressions involving space time belong to everything in the universe not just 'Interstellar the movie', the reference is unnecessary sigh, also the movie isn't totally focused on this theme at all. I would be more concerned with how certain other themes and concepts are unimaginatively explored to death in other movies over the last 100 years. Enjoy this movie on its on merits!
