Movie Reviews

Of Robots and Astronauts
AMP | Somewhere on Earth | 09/27/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Bicentennial Man (3.5 stars out of 5)
*This is a cute, heart-warming saga about a robot evolving into a human. It's an epic biographical account with strong ressonances to classier science fiction (like the works of Isaac Asimov, whose works was the basis for this film). It's ultimately very interesting, thought-provoking, and warming. The only drawback is that it is also long, and without any major conflict, it can be seen as tedious. Still worthwhile for anybody looking for classy, serious sci-fi.
*The DVD has okay video quality. Extras include a production featurette.
*Includes English and French audio.

Mission to Mars (3.5 stars out of 5)
*Yeah, most people hate this movie, but I think it's great. It is long and slow-moving, but it has slick special effects and some good interesting ideas. The story genuinely keeps me interested. It's not enough to outdo "2001: A Space Odyssey" (especially since this film seems to copy it so much), but it is reccomended to fans of space opera.
*The DVD has great video/sound quality. Extras include documentaries, featurettes, a commentary, production art gallery, DVD-ROM stuff, and a trailer.
*Includes English, French, and Spanish audio, and Spanish subtitles.

Even though most people seem to loathe "Mission to Mars," I say it has enough interesting ideas to make it worthwhile seeing at least once. "Bicentennial Man" is the most worthwhile though, and is probably even more interesting. Both make for good, classy, thought-provoking sci-fi."
Bicentenniel Man a Humorous and Touching Epic
R. D. Smith | Tucson, AZ | 10/24/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Bicentenniel Man has it all - humor, love, sadness, plus it covers 200 years of history and several generations - a wonderful multi-generational story. It's all about a quest - that of a robot to find his humanity; a lot like Data in the Star Trek series but much more enduring and epic. Though a bit long, I could watch this again and again."
