    Watching this fresh off the heels of Chernobyl was a great choice. The fact that this movie came out 7 years before the incident at Chernobyl actually happened is pretty chilling. The cost of secrets. Great performances from Lemmon and Fonda elevate the thrills, making this a must see if you’re into the HBO series Chernobyl.

    Okay, so every week my buddies and I bet on what will make the most money at the box office, the one who gets the closest wins and assigns the other two a movie. If you do not watch that movie in a certain amount of time, you get assigned a punishment movie. A movie that the winner deems as pure unadulterated shit. I had a busy couple weeks and this is my punishment. Holy balls was this terrible.

    I gave my six year old son control of the remote and told him to pick a movie. So we sat through this abomination. I have since put him up for adoption.

    This is how you make a sci-fi movie. Wow. Beautifully shot. The sound design and the visuals are what make this movie. To say my jaw was on the ground during the entire bear scene is a massive understatement. It’s confusing, it’s brilliant, and it’s complicated but above all else, it’s an amazing damn sci-fi film.
