Complete garbage 0/5 rating. I want my time wasted by watching this movie. George Clooney should be ashamed to have made this crappy of a movie.

I really like this movie, but you have to go into it expecting something other than action/adventure Sci-Fi. I think of it as a psychological drama that happens to be set in a Sci-Fi setting.
I found it much more approachable than the Russian film, and I like it more than the original book. It's beautifully filmed and visually interesting, but the real story is the characters and what they are going through.

A Plodding Mind Bender

"3.0 out of 5 stars A Plodding Mind Bender, March 10, 2010
Well...I didn't hate it.
Solaris is a plodding mind-bender that will cause you to furrow your brow a dozen times throughout the film. I've watched it twice and am still not 100% sure of what just happened. I got the basics though -- a man goes to a space station that is situated outside a planet called Solaris. The planet seems to have cognizance and is sending 3-D visitors to the space station. Unlike the rest of the crew members, George Clooney's character 'likes' his visitor and after killing her a couple of times, regrets it, and wants her to stay.
I'll leave the ending up to you to interpret. No, I understand it. Mostly.
Enjoy the movie but don't invest much money into it.
Oh-side note, the pacing of the movie is methodical, musical and ethereal and it made me think of Blade Runner.
