Watched a movie that I've wanted to see for a while.    :popcorn:

Life.

 :o

Alien life form from Mars gets aboard the ISS and then threatens life on Earth. Sounds good, previews looked good, got decent ratings.

This is one of the worst space movies that I've ever seen!    :pukeface:

Spoiler alert.

Super intelligent killer starfish from Mars vs. the worlds dumbest scientists/astronauts.

Don't bother, the starfish wins.  ::)

I enjoyed it not as a SciFi but as a thriller.  That is the problem- there has been very little ACTUAL science fiction for many years now- it is all "Sci Action" or "Sci Thriller", where science takes a far back-seat to the action.

You didn't have any problems with the EXTREMELY stupid mistakes performed by the crew (that in the end will extinguish all life on Earth)? Or how the starfish was able to get back into the ISS once it was out in space? I don't mean to nit pick and I am certainly able to suspend my disbelief normally, but...

Oh yes, I had lots of problems with those and other issues.  I just wrote it all off and tried to think of it as just a thriller :)  Even as such, it was still only a C+.  As a sci-fi it was more like a D.

Sneaky pete season 2 was not as good as 1 unfortunately.
Too many moving parts, too much Oceans 11.

Thanks for the review C. I was also interested in that movie but will now take a pass.

When I renew my HBO account when GOT season 8 is released, I'll have to check out this show as well. Has Lance Reddick in it whom I enjoyed in The Fringe as well as Bosch.

You really need to watch The Wire. It's the most realistic crime show that I've ever seen.

Just started on another Netflix reboot, The new legends of Monkey.

Made by the Aussies it seems to have just the right blend of campiness, cheese and humour  😁
