aybe I'm just dense, but I didn't get it.
I'm familiar with the TV series "Lost In Space", though I must admit it has been more than 20 years since I have seen an episode on TV. But let me get this straight.
The movie is called "Lost in Space".
1) We have to sit through about 45 minutes of family bickering before anyone even goes into space.
2) Once the Robinson family finally does get lost, they are lost in space for about 5 minutes before they find something familiar and a star map that can lead them home.
3) They then spend most of the rest of the movie lost in TIME.
4) They finally get lost in SPACE again just in time for the closing credits.
I just don't get it.
Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the movie, and the special effects OF SPACE were quite breathtaking.
But when will moviemakers get it into their heads that computer-generated creatures, with the exception of "Jurassic Park", look more fake than animatronics???
I mean, first we have those spiders. Then there's the spiderized version of Dr. Smith. BUT WHAT IS WITH THE CARTOON-LOOKING LITTLE MONKEY? Give me a break! An otherwise semi-sophistcated movie suddenly turns into "The Incredible Mr. Limpet".
