Ad Astra this is gonna be a whole story so buckle up Im going to take the liberty of guessing that most of us go to the cinema for entertainment (joy, escapism, fan favorites, a good story or laugh, whatever)  I too am this way. Going out of my joy and love for filmmaking and the powerful art-form it is.  Yes i enjoy my movies and I love a fun story or good character. Great acting a cinematography always reel me in.  But i like to say that movie watching is a learning and improving experience for me. Something beyond just watching with your brain turned off. Gaining a meaning or insight, greater purpose or thought for life and others. (That was 🧀) NEVER before has a movie been so "meditative" to quote my friend. The whole time i was seeking for understanding. Yes of course understanding about the plot/story. Even more than that understanding of myself and the reaction I was having to what this film was presenting.  I find it difficult to explain this experience. So new and foreign, still without defining words.  But it is a film that never once lost my attention. A film with great acting and story telling. Unique perspectives and ideas, even a new type of story. Always "subverting" my expectations in a pleasant and profound way. It makes me consider my existence and relationship to life. Relationship to those around me, to my job and priorities, to the universe as a whole.  A film so expansive in space yet depicting the great stature and instability of a simple human. Maybe this all just poetic junk. But I'm grateful I saw it and for those who made it.  Definitely a Blu-ray purchase down the road to continue to study. On top of all that thus film is BEAUTIFUL. WOW I was constantly amazed at the look of space and light and earth and space equipment.  I'm amazed at the vfx and zero gravity work of Brad Pitt (not sure what tactic they used)  The action was so new and refreshing honestly surprising. [The moon "battle" and surprising killer monkeys] It was balanced so well with the greater story and events but so new to see. Such well done action in zero and low gravity. Brought a new weight and intensity to the danger of fighting. It makes me want to see a whole action movie devoted to this type of fighting (Alita sequel?) But I would hate to see this new "battle ground" wasted. i think the action was so amazing because it was so sparse. TL;DR The movie was great Made me think  Great acting Beautiful cinematography Exciting and surprising action New story and storytelling

En film der rækker højt og som i lange perioder er virkelig god. Jeg synes dog ikke den helt har det der skal til for at være klassiker status. Men absolut godt håndværk både af instruktør og skuespillere og en meget anderledes fortælling. Brad Pitt og Tommy Lee gør det glimrende.
