Greetings one and all! It’s been quite sometime since I ventured to the movies. Some may say that a global pandemic would be a viable excuse for a hiatus but I’m not so sure. However the time away has not been all bad. It has given me some time to reflect on things such as what I want to do moving forward as well as provided me a chance to get some things organized. Needless to say this break has not been a waste, but I think it’s time to get back to work.
Space: its mysterious nature has been an inspiration to the imagination. While there are many aspects to the sci-fi genre the concept of traveling through space is practically the genre’s bread and butter as it has played a major role in the world of film with movies such as 2001: A Space Odyssey and Interstellar. Despite the variety of adventures through the milky way this concept continues to thrive on the silver screen, and that is certainly evident in the new film Ad Astra. Ad Astra is directed by James Gray who wanted to create a more realistic approach to space travel, and it seems this idea has proven effective as the film has received astounding praise from critics. However could this sci-fi film entice this Film Adventurer? The answer is a surprising yes.
