Re: A Review of Three Movies I Watched Recently...
It was pretty good. A bit longer than perhaps it should have been or could have been.
There are some common themes in it (future environmental catastrophes, love, intrepidity, boldly going where no man has gone before, etc).
Scientifically accurate? Well they made one mistake that most people would miss, I think.
The main character (Matthew M) said it would take a thousand years to get to the nearest star system (Alpha C)
He was wrong. It would take closer to 100K to get there with our current capabilities. And the movie didnt mention that space flight capabilities had advanced much.
I thought the movie was going to have a bit more theoretical dialogue.
Overall it was pretty good.
A doctor that is an acquaintance of mine went to the premier as a guest of the primary science consultant for the movie. I forgot his name but he now holds the "Richard Feynman Chair" at Cal Tech in Pasadena.
