Tell me about it. I thought a Mensa membership was required to grasp movies in a certain cinematic universe. Had no idea the same was required for this (insert choice word here).

It was pretty obvious that he had the sheets tucked in tight to prevent drifting. As for the WHY...I figured that since he's (presumably) made many trips it was a safety thing that the crew did when they weren't in suspended animation.

You know...just in case

Finally watched this and it was ok at best. Some cringe inducing dialogue to be sure. The movies tone was all over the place. One minute a romance, the next a popcorn action movie complete with plot contrivances galore. Oh and can we stop with the super advanced technology and using freaking key cards, bracelets, keys etc to unlock things in movies. I'm looking at you too Ex Machina.

How is that "super-advanced?" My Apple Watch can do most of that.

Sorry my point was poorly written there. I just mean its stupid to have all this advanced tech in the future, i.e. the ability to create artificial intelligence or the ability to travel at near the speed of light and have people in suspended animation and then rely on key cards to access doors or bracelets to access medical pods. Its a plot contrivance. If they are so advanced, why not use eyeball scans, voice recognition passwords, or DNA verification through taking a blood sample etc. or something even more advanced for security measures.

True.
The director of Ex Machina even apologized for having his characters use key cards in it. Said basically the same thing you wrote.

Well on the ship there is different classes of Passengers. How else were they suppose to do that? Have all the one class of Passengers in their own separate part of the ship?

Ahh, gotcha.

[Show spoiler]no, i mean after they live their life together and I'm assuming they get old together from all the trees aboard the plane, why didn't the other surviving passenger just jump into the pod when the other died of lets just say old age.

Compared to the other blockbusters that rake in billions, "Fast Cars-No Brains 8 or 9"....."Star Wars part XXVXVVV"..this movie is a fukking masterpiece.

but don't worry, original movie ideas are dead, too risky, from now on they will focus on making braindead movies that sell tickets in china

I don't think it's fair that you come in and post a blanket statement insinuating that we all prefer generic no-brain Blockbusters and dislike original movie ideas.

The majority of us like(d) this. But the majority of us simply fell MORE in love with starting the movie from Aurora's perspective. It could still be a love story, folks. Ever hear of '500 Days of Summer'? That's non linear/not in sequence.

You like "original"?
Isn't non linear more original than linear?

Just saw this and it's not horrible but it's also not the best sci-fi movie or even a romance movie with a backdrop of space of the past few years. It's just sorta there. I will say all that stuff about Pratt's character, I think the movie does try and do it's best with trying make you feel for him. But overall, I wasn't necessarily blown away by this movie. I gave it a 3/5.

Now I understand what you meant. But I would not want my eyeballs scanned a hundred times a day every time I walk through another doorway in the ship. We have voice recognition now so that isn't so advanced either. How would a blood sample work? Every time I walk through a doorway, access a control panel, etc. I get a prick of blood tested?

Perhaps they've found the "old-fashioned" way works the best for the crew - carrying a simple card that can fit in your pocket and be inserted and verified in a second instead of waiting 5 seconds to get your eyeball scanned. New doesn't automatically mean better.

Personally I thought the commlock from Space:1999 was a great "future" concept back in the 70's when it aired. It was a combination video communication device and security key that emitted an electronic ID signal. Each crew member had their own device coded only for their use, with the proper security clearance. The device would only open doors that they had clearance for.
