FILM FRIDAY APOLLO 13

annette murphyComment

houston, we have a problem.

we watched

this movie

again over the weekend in the waiting room of our car dealership. jeez it's good. we actually waited an extra 1/2 hour in the waiting room to watch the whole thing.

here is

another space movie that's coming out,

a thriller, with george clooney and sandra bullock. too much grunting in the trailer for me but it looks scary and alfonso cuaron is a fantastic director.

so what is it about space movies that makes them perfect for great storytelling? uncharted territories? hero's journey? unknown antagonists? danger? man vs. nature? life/death stakes? all of the above?

and how do we incorporate these storytelling elements inherent in space exploration films into other genres? xoxoxo
