Lost In Space YIFY
It's the year 2058. The United Global Space Force is building a Hypergate to travel to another planet. Wars have left the Earth almost uninhabitable. Major Don West (Matt LeBlanc) is a fighter pilot protecting the Hypergate from a terrorist group called the Global Sedition. The Robinson family (William Hurt, Mimi Rogers, Heather Graham, Lacey Chabert, Jack Johnson) are traveling to Alpha Prime to build a Hypergate on the other side. Major West is brought in to fly the spaceship. Dr. Zachary Smith (Gary Oldman) is paid by the Sedition to sabotage the spaceship but is doublecross and left stunned on board the ship.There are many things that don't make sense. Why send a family? The spaceship is horribly unaerodynamic which makes launching it like that really stupid. It's trying to adapt a campy 60s sci-fi TV show to be a gritty futuristic space action thriller. It loses everything from the original without gaining much in return. Matt LeBlanc to trying to do Joey by hitting on Heather Graham while her father is right next to them. LeBlanc's character insists on making jokes. Then the movie keeps taking dark turns. Just when things seem to settle down to a good thriller, they throw in a CG space monkey. Jar Jar Binks anyone? If Earth sent another ship, why not go to Alpha Prime themselves? In fact, why would the Robinsons run into that ship in all of space? So many questions, so few answers.
Lost in Space YIFY
Here's a brain dead blockbuster which is pretty to look at but fails to engage the brain whatsoever. Fans of the '60s television series who are curious to find out how this filmed version holds up would be wise to give it a miss, as it's just an excuse for lots of cool special effects and not a lot else. Once again the plot seems to have been made up as they went along and is full of holes and indiscrepancies. Things get really bizarre at the end of the film, in which the script writers seemed to dig themselves into a hole and then decide to confuse the audience with technobabble to get them out of it again. By that time I really didn't care and was praying for the obnoxiously sentimental characters to get brutally butchered by a marauding horde of space-spiders.Where to begin with the faults of the cast? (I guess we can't just blame the actors, as the dialogue and characterisation is terrible and contrived too). William Hurt takes the lead as John Robinson, and never has a character been so dull! Truly this guy sent me to sleep every time he opened his monotonous voice. His wife is played by Mimi Rogers, one-time star of THE X-FILES, who flounders aimlessly in a nothing role. Matt LeBlanc is the Robinson's pilot (he can't be a family member as you have to have romance in there too) and is as you would expect, a good-looking but bone-headed meat head who looks good in his space costume but fails to create a realistic character. Heather Graham lends her fragile beauty to the film as Judy Robinson, a daughter, but she has basically nothing to do in the story other than flirt with LeBlanc.For some reason there are lots of extraneous family members added into the story in order to make it appeal to each and every age (we've got child, early teen, 20-somethings and middle-aged folk - what happened to the token old or black person though?). Most grating of all is the incredibly irritating Penny Robinson, played by Lacey Chabert. Penny spends the film speaking into her video camera and is played as a stereotypical dumb American girl. I was seriously ready to kill her by the end of the film. Jack Johnson is the annoying cute kid Will Robinson, the less said about him the better. The only character I did like was Gary Oldman as the evil baddie Zachary Smith. Despite the fact that he mumbles half of his lines, Oldman is still good value as the unlucky bad character who I ended up rooting for unsurprisingly. Edward Fox also appears to disgrace himself in a cameo appearance along with a few returning original cast members.The action sequences are well-staged but flashy, enlivened by some excellent special effects work (especially the alien spiders and the spider-thing that Smith turns into at the end of the movie). Not so great is the CGI used to animate the space sequences which just looks tacky. The CGI used to portray minor things - like the helmet which rolls down over LeBlanc's head - looks much more impressive. Basically the film has no plot, just scene after scene of the family being menaced by irritating robots and aliens and fighting for their lives. You know already that nobody is going to die, this being a family-orientated movie, so that suspense is ruined as well. And whoever thought to include the obnoxious alien monkey should be shot dead on the spot. LOST IN SPACE is an extremely light weight, flashy sci-fi story with good effects but nothing else.
In the future, mankind has spread throughout the galaxy. In 2420, space wizards from other dimension have enslaved humanity. They steal children but some are rebelling.It's the first two minutes. On the one hand, it lost me at "Space Wizards". On the other hand, I'm intrigued. I want some Space Wizards. This is a series of vignettes. Different filmmakers are making their own sci-fi short and somebody has slammed them together into a 90 minute movie. Quite frankly, only the first short fits neatly into the opening text. The others are not so tailor-made. Some have better special effects than others. One is downright embarrassing. Each short should be considered as its own story. The last one is the most interesting. It hints of a Twilight Zone episode. It doesn't fit the rest of the movie but that's ok by then. I do want it to finish with a better ending. That short is almost good. 041b061a72
