Trivia

113 appears at least twice in this movie. Once as A113, an inside joke Easter egg used by alumni of California Institute of the Arts, referring to the classroom used by graphic design and character animation students including John Lasseter, Tim Burton and Brad Bird, now all famous directors. The UFO is spotted at 1113 Airport Rd. 113 is the 30th prime number. 113 is a Sophie Germain prime, a Chen prime, a Proth prime, and an Eisenstein prime. In base 10, this prime is a primeval number, and a permutable prime with 131 and 311. 113 is a highly cototient number and a centered square number. 355/113 approximates pi to six decimal places, with an error of less than 1/1133 - this means that 113/355 approximates the reciprocal of pi. 113 is the smallest positive integer that cannot be represented in the Four fours problem using standard rules.

Goofs

Derek is looking at a news report on his notebook computer when the government agent states that the UAP was 88 feet in diameter. Derek then says, "He's using my maths. "Maths" is a term used in the UK and Australia. An American student at the University of Cincinnati would say "math"; not "maths". The actor who plays Derek (Alex Sharp) is from the UK and accidentally used the British term instead of what was in the script. See more »

Could have been so much more....
4 September 2018 | by mf2812See all my reviews

As in my heading, this could have been so much better, not that it's bad though. I see there's certain reviews calling it pretentious. That's just not true. There's a difference between smart or clever and pretentious.

If this was played out more like a faux-documentary style I reckon it would have worked out a lot better though.

It's a definite watch at least once. Give it a go. It's just under 90 mins so it's not too taxing and you might be surprised. One thing though, I really wouldn't recommend it for a sit down with your missus or friends and crack open a beer type scenario. It's just not that type.

6/10
