It’s hard to imagine a more forgettable piece of sci-fi hooey than Chaos Walking.
Little Fish brings a refreshing aura of hope to what initially appears to be a situation entirely absent of it, making this love story a sterling reminder that little things can work miracles, and making authentic human connections – no matter how they occur – a priceless gift worth celebrating.
Skyfire is a fast-paced disaster yarn overflowing in narrow escapes, sudden deaths and an overabundance of visual pyrotechnics.
Douglas Trumball’s Silent Running is a flawed classic, but that still makes it a classic.
