    "Look, all I'm asking is for you to just have the tiniest bit of vision. You know, to just sit back for one minute and look at the big picture. To take a chance on something that just might end up being the most profoundly impactful moment for humanity, for the history... of history."

    Carl Sagan was a master of popularizing science, of translating our scientific passion for knowledge. He had the smarts and more importantly the charm. I loved…

    "Despite knowing the journey... and where it leads... I embrace it... and I welcome every moment of it."

    Despite knowing this film inside and out, I welcome every minute of runtime. It has so many of my favorite aspects of SF beautifully woven together. Strung together by an amazing cast and a respectable budget for a non-superhero SF film.

    While not the perfect SF multiverse film, it may be the best our universe can produce. Rightfully embarrases the MCU and its shallow and uninspired recent take on the topic 🤭. EEAAO encompases most major genres. Yet never lets the chaos distract from the emotional focus. Style with substance and soul.

    Speaking strictly on the multiverse portrayal, I do have a gripe. The story asks us explicitly to believe a specific instance of Evelyn is to be "the one"... even…

    🤣 This wasn't the SF teen sex comedy I expected. This is a legit softcore porn, with a few known actors, and a story much more elaborate than say... the well known Emmanuelle in Space. Also, it rips off The Terminator in a rather funny conclusion and the two lead guys spend most of the film crossdressed as schoolgirls. Not going to lie, it was too weird for me not to love.

    FYI, it also appears under the title Time Babes (1993). Available on Tubi. Though that version looks highly edited, about 13 minutes shorter.

    Why won't these writers send me their SF romcom screenplays so I can nudge them from being above average to excellent. This script was the perfect setup to smash all of its genre tags. Apparently though the writer must not have been aware to the full extent its scientific premise could be extrapolated and must not be a true science fiction fan... 😢 + 🐼.

    Starting around the hour mark I really thought this was going to ramp up into…

    I can appreciate if those who read the book enjoyed this. Obviously that would make this far easier to digest because of how shit the storytelling was. Honestly, didn't even have the main character right. The narrator perspective unfairly fucks this whole thing over right from the start. The pieces connect now, but the experience isn't worth a second viewing anyway.

    Most of the film was and would still be downright tedious. 50 minutes quoting shit in the car. If…
