I saw Ad Astra (2019) today and I am completely torn about the film. On the one hand, it is nearly perfection with science and gorgeous with visuals. On the other hand, the story line of the film is rather weak.
We do need more hard science fiction films like Ad Astra though. Films that take place in the near future rather than the past or the far future.
