Today I enjoyed: Voyagers.

Voyagers has an interesting premise: Earth is dying (this is not the interesting part), so a multi-generation mission is set up to send humans to another planet to ensure the continuation of the human race (this is what I am talking about). And while I had some hope, that this movie might provide some interesting ideas or perspectives on the matter, it really did not.

It is hard to put into words, why I thought the movie was weird. For one thing, there were some dumb decisions by several characters, but that is not all. I also felt like the movie did not really tackle the question of how a multi-generation spaceship can work. Or it did, but I did not like the answers. Overall I hoped to see a movie that is not that different from this one. I think it would need just a few adjustments to be the film I would have liked.

Anyways, I cannot recommend this movie, but at the same time - as you might have picked up from my rambling before - I cannot pinpoint the problems I had with it. So if you like science fiction: Build your own opinion. If not, you probably want to stay away from it.
