Watched Contact with my children last night. It was worse than I remembered.


I remember seeing it twice in theaters. I wish i could go back in time and stop myself.

I know, right? LOL.


What is so bad about it?  It is on my "maybe" list for Netflix and am wondering if I should spare myself some misery.

It's hokey. They took an intriguing subject matter and turned it into a cheesy film full of straw man caricatures and plastic character development. Pretty lame movie.


And the insertion of Clinton into certain scenes of the film were just totally unnecessary.

lol. That was awful indeed.

And Rob Lowe playing the evil fundamentalist knock off of Ralph Reed. Just so over the top.


Ok, sounds pretty bad.

I just took my cousin and friends kid to see it...we all liked it.  They were.boys age 5 and 10.   It was definitely one of the more enjoyable cgi kid films I've seen, though not in the top 5.

Tarovsky. Solaris, Stalker, Andrei Rublev.

Oh and I watched the Sodebergh Solaris as well, I liked it a lot didn't blow my mind like Tarovsky's version.
