Thanks for the warning, I was kinda interested but I had not done much looking into what it was about. There is so little QUALITY SciFi these days.
Are there any recent examples that do stand out as a good sci-fi movie?I am finding many of the newer movies wanting lately. Perhaps HollyRock is trying to change the model and we are in the throws of the change. What I would love to see is some fantastic science fiction stories done true to the author's vision. Its all doable with today's movie technology. It just seems Hollyrock needs to be defragmented and needs a serious spyware scan.
I'm going to rewatch Skyline again soon. Perhaps a second viewing will make it better somehow?
To end it all, the characters are just not engaging, with no personality to cling on to, nor are they worthy of our empathy, which makes the moments in between the action quite boring.
An open ended conclusion screams sequel, yet Skyline and The Brothers Strause do not deserve one, nor should we be made to relive this most uninspiring of science fiction.
The theater was fairly full on the Saturday night I went to see it. At least two couples walked out in the middle. As we were leaving, I heard more than one person saying they couldn't believe they shelled out $10.50 for this.
