Slow does not equal boring.Is it slow yeah. But it also has some of the vest acting of the year in my opinion. Better look at the human condition then Interstellar. Might not be as exiting, but still better..Score: 5/5
Great FilmThis is truly a great film. Though, many will find it boring. It’s a deep film, a character study in which Brad Pitt gives an Oscar caliber performance..Score: 4/5
Beautiful!I just finished this, and it is, without qualification, one of the best explorations in film of what it means to really live. It is sparse and philosophical, but stands out as one of Pitt’s finest works. Love! (Submit).Score: 5/5
What the hell did I just watch?Look,I work in the film industry.. I love artistic explorations of human struggle both internal and external. This was, objectively, a meandering film with nothing to grab the viewer’s interest and hold for very long. I mean, I guess I understand the aim but it lacked so many specifics that, in the end, you’re Left wondering what the point of it all was. You don;t feel as if you have taken a journey so much as endured a trial... and are just glad it ended. I also saw the heartfelt interview with Brad Pitt wherein he discussed his hope to make a deeply meaningful film about the connection between fathers and sons... and the fraught dynamic of that which makes them different. Man, if that exists here, it is buried more deeply than a single viewing can reveal. I just cannot recommend this film to the average viewer - given the esoteric nature of its narrative..Score: 3/5

Worth a WatchGreat space movie all in all but I will concede that it could have been titled “Daddy Issues In Space”... lol.Score: 4/5
Blew me away.This is an astounding film. Beautifully shot. Carefully paced. One of those films that has such an excellent sense of "place." Feels extremely authentic. HOWEVER- all of that is a facade in front of the real human story. If you've come to this movie looking for some space-faring high adventure, the movie will probably sail right over your head. And HEART. If you've ever locked horns with depression, prepare to be punched right in the face. The emotional resonance with Roy's story transported me. Roy's a hero NOT for his physical exploits, but for his bravery in facing what's eating him alive. Ad Astra SINGS. I'm about ten shades of loving this movie. WOW..Score: 5/5
Why can’t I give it zero stars?So bad. So... so incredibly bad. It was like going to an amusement park, expecting a fun ride on a roller coaster, but end up standing in a dimly lit room for a few hours, staring at a painting of a bowl of fruit instead..Score: 1/5

2019: A Space AgonyA pretentious and ponderous film that appears to have been written by someone with severe unresolved father issues. It was so slow that we had plenty of time to notice and be irritated by all the bad physics and dubious scenerios. Pirates in moon buggies? Norwegian space gorillas? And don't get me started on all the incompetent - and in one case doddering - astronauts. We will happily suspend belief in the laws of conservation of energy and momentum when it helps move the plot along, but not much moves in this film..Score: 1/5

All the hate over something subjectiveInstead of judging a movie by others opinions, try actually watching the movie and think for yourself and build an opinion around that instead. There are so many “bad movies” out there that I actually really enjoy because I actually watched them and discovered that they were actually really good. Think for yourselves people..Score: 5/5
Exceeded ExpectationsI saw the trailer for this film in the theatre, and I thought it would be garbage. When I actually watched it I enjoyed it quite thoroughly. It is paced more slowly, however it makes up for that in a strong well written story. Brad Pitt does a fantastic job playing a relatable character. The music is soothing and beautiful. Most certainly a pleasant surprise for a sci-fi film of this era..Score: 5/5
