Did You Know?


Due to a poorly received test screening, David Ellison, a financier at Paramount, became concerned that the film was "too intellectual" and "too complicated," and demanded changes to make it appeal to a wider audience, including making Portman's character more sympathetic and changing the ending. Producer Scott Rudin sided with Garland in his desire to not alter the film, defending the film and refusing to take notes. Rudin had final cut. See more »

Scientist: What did you eat? You had rations for only two weeks. You were there for nearly four months.
The Biologist: I don't remember eating.
Scientist: How long do you think you were in there?
The Biologist: Days. Maybe weeks?

Been a while since i was this disappointed
1 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

I was expecting a mind bending, make you ask questions of your own existence kind of movie. Did not get that at all.

What i did get was a slow, huge plot hole, mess of a boring didnt ask any questions at all really kind of movie.

Nearly fell asleep, i would have, except the guy 2 rows behind me was snoring too loudly !
