    This is a Bad Movie. It looks great, that first scene is actually really touching ( even with the over-used David Bowie song ), but then it just gets boring ( an amazing feat, the scenery looks beatiful ), and predictable and weirdly misogynistic. It feels like a 90s movie made with today’s tech.
    Its also a problem when your CGI aliens have more charisma than your leads…

    There’s a saying: It’s easier for an ant to pass through the eye of a needle than for a person who died of gusher death to enter the kingdom of heaven. So, like, it’s way easier than a rich man, bit still can be tricky, depending on the age and species of ant. Oh, and the ant still gets stepped on after going through this needle eye, for some unexplained reason. Weird.

    This is the episode where they talk about the new season of Black Mirror, right? I agree that it’s kind of weak. I was hoping for a shout-out to “Kill the Deejay” though. That episode was very good. And I enjoyed realizing the male lead was Reese from Green Room. A role where I found him very annoying.
