Watched in theater Sunday March 7, 2021
AMC Kent 12 – Kent, Washington
11th new movie seen in theater in 2021
A spaceship crashes on a planet, leaving only a female survivor named Viola. A young farmer finds her named Todd. The men on the planet have their thoughts radiating around them and can be heard and yet the town has no women in it. Todd then tries to secret and Viola “space girl” from the townsfolk.
If you can see this in a theater, like most (all?) sci-fi fantasy films, it helps. There was enough mystery in the storyline to keep me entertained, but this wasn’t Kara’s type of movie. Listen to what she has to say about in our just left the theater below.
Great sound effects. Cinematography was good. The story wasn’t cliched, was a little redundant, but had a little bit of a Planet of The Apes vibe running through it. Runtime was too long, again, due to the redundancy.
I liked this one. It was “different” as Kara stated while we left the theater. When you see as many movies as we do, different is nice and appreciated. Is it that great a movie? No, but the whole idea of men leaking thoughts, while women can suppress theirs is intriguing. They kind of pulled it off, too.
Rating (out of 5 stars): ⭐️⭐️⭐️½ (Todd) ⭐️⭐️ (Kara)
