Lost in Space in 100 words (or less)

A Review of Netflix’s Lost in Space in 100 words or less, including these.

  • Beautiful scenes and sets that keep you visually immersed in the future on an alien planet.
  • Solid cast with young actors that deliver (except Judy is too soft-spoken to feel authoritative). Posey’s Dr. Smith creates an uneasy ambiance.
  • A musical score that’s occasionally too on-the-nose.
  • Survival problems, including alien predators, that must be solved with brains, not wanton gun fire. Cast doesn’t automatically know what others know.
  • Great episodic situations with strong central build up to a satisfying end.

I would watch it again, thumbs up.

Jack’s Bad Movies: Captain America (1990)

IMDB’s description:

Frozen in the ice for decades, Captain America is freed to battle against arch-criminal, The Red Skull.

The movie opens in 1936 in Italy. We are watching a private piano recital which no one is enjoying. Then some soldiers (Nazis?) bust in and take the boy playing the piano, they want him for his superior intelligence (their words, not mine). Then they force the boy to watch as they kill his parents right in front of him. I’m sure he is going to want to help them now.

Now we are in a place called Fortress Lorenzo, and Nazis are watching videos of a rat. Then we see the rat has been turned into a terrible red skull lizard. A lady doctor comes in (I don’t mean an OBGYN) and they are going to use their red skull process on this gifted boy of whom they just killed his parents. The lady doctor is against this. She escapes.

The Orville – Season 1

The Orville

Fox.com description:

From Emmy Award-winning executive producer and creator Seth MacFarlane (FAMILY GUY, “Ted,” “Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey”), THE ORVILLE is a live-action, one-hour space adventure series set 400 years in the future that follows The Orville, a mid-level exploratory spaceship. Its crew, both human and alien, face the wonders and dangers of outer space, while also dealing with the familiar, often humorous problems of everyday life.

Originally described as a Star Trek spoof, something along the lines of Galaxy Quest, The Orville starts off quirky and funny, and then immediately loses sight of this as it tries to be serious after creating a premise of satire.
