  • Ad Astra, 2019 - ★★★★

    A cosmic quest for closure that general audiences may be disappointed to find has less to do with aliens than alienation and abandonment. Gray picks up where he left off in The Lost City of Z with another story about man’s exploration of the unknown, except that here it’s as if Jack Fawcett didn’t partake in the journey into the jungle with his father, slid into a deep depression, and years later was sent to go look for dad (Close Encounters of the Third Kind came to mind for similar reasons; I’m sure Roy Neary’s kids would be real well-adjusted after their dad left them for aliens). Lost City is a film that looks better and better in the rear view mirror; hoping Ad Astra does too.

  • Ad Astra, 2019 - ★★★★½

    Laid back masterful cinematography from Hoyte van Hoytema leads us through a SciFi film straddling the foundation lines of the genre explored most notably (at least in my personal experience) in the novels of by PKD, Bester, and Bradbury. Man as Nature, Man vs. Nature, Man vs. Man, and Man vs. Self. It's ideas are deep, the twitch beneath Pitt's eyes gives us a sense of mistrustful unease. Are we witnessing Gray exploring the disillusionment of faith? The brutality of nature? It's hard to say, one way or another. I'm most comfortable asserting that it's a film whose subjects are profundity and solitude. Larger claims beyond that are up for debate.

  • Movie Review: Ad Astra
    We’ve been treated to some provocative sci-fi films recently, from Gravity to Interstellar to Arrival. Ad Astra aims for the same orbit, but it’s both darker and dimmer. (PG-13)

  • Critics Slam ‘Rambo: Last Blood’ For Making Sex Traffickers Look Bad
    (”Ad Astra” is briefly mentioned in this.)
    One could argue that the film creates sympathy for Mexicans who only wish to flee what are often hellish conditions in the more dangerous regions of their country.

  • 4 Things You Should Know about Ad Astra
    Roy McBride is a quiet and pensive astronaut on a mission to save Earth. To do that, though, he’ll have to travel to the edge of the Solar System. So far, 43,000 people on our planet have been killed due to unexplained electric surges originating from the outer planets. McBride is tasked with discovering the source and helping end it. That’s difficult enough, but then he learns the surges are deriving from the same region – near Neptune – that his father, also an astronaut, tragically died years ago. Is there a connection?

Want even more consensus?

Skip Rotten Tomatoes, they’re biased SJWs too afraid to criticize things like the Ghost Busters reboot. Avoid giving them ad revenue by using the minimalist alternative, Cinesift, for a quick aggregate:
