Europa Report, barely a quarter of an hour in.
September 30, 2013
Space ship, somewhere well on its way to Jupiter and they’re having a real-time discussion with Mission Control on Earth. WTF Hollywood? Who the hell makes a Sci-Fi film and then doesn’t hire someone with at least a high-school level understanding of physics to check the script for nonsense? There’s a 3 second delay just talking to someone on the Moon for Pete’s sake.
According to Rotten Tomatoes this film is:
Claustrophobic and stylish, Europa Report is a slow-burning thriller that puts the science back into science fiction.
Except for that thing about the speed of light I suppose… Why is it so difficult to make a decent Science Fiction movie when there are so many good Science Fiction books out there?
