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?

    The worst part by far was the ending. I’m not very demanding, but this is my criteria:

    – Fast paced action space movie with alien sea monsters and I have popcorn = good
    – Slow paced scifi movie with plausible tech given current understanding of science and and original take on alien life that evolved in another planet = good
    – Slow paced scifi with alien sea monsters = bad
