Sounds like it would be perfectly suited for the '80s when "reasons" are the premise behind most of what logic and science would dictate are impractical/impossible respectively. We need more movies like this. It's been almost 40 years, and I still don't know what constitutes the cut off for "after midnight," but Gremlins is still a fun romp. Just sayin', sometimes movies that cause brain damage are better than pretentious ones that try to root themselves in reality. An "entertaining" movie need not necessarily be a "good" one.Watched MoonFall last night. Hard to describe. Its very entertaining, but the writing is just hilariously bad. I was thinking to myself that it was almost like the script was in another language and then someone came in and translated it the day of shooting and they just kind of rolled with it. Youll really notice some dialogue is just not how Americans or any westerner would talk. Not sure if theres a story behind that. Even his previous films like Stargate and Independence Day had pretty snappy dialog. I really think theres a story behind this bizarre script.
Aside from that they dont just ignore basic science they just throw it completely out the window, however it is filmed in such a way that it manages to be fairly exciting throughout. I have a feeling at least one person in the scientific community will point out the idea of the moon being knocked out if it orbit in a real scenario would be far more interesting and entertaining. A miss opportunity because in a way the stakes feel lower because this is so goofy.
Watchable, but I checked my phone three times so 2/5.
