The American Astronaut   ...   movie reviews

Last Saturday I saw The American Astronaut. I knew virtually nothing about it going in.

It was brilliant. On some level, I suppose I was bound to love a sci-fi western rock musical comedy. I mean, what's not to love, right? It's kind of like Six-String Samurai in space, only ... weirder. But it's really so much more than just that.

There were dozens of little details of what things are like in this particular universe, all of which I thought were great, both in concept and execution. And I especially liked the Professor character.

Anyway, I really don't want to reveal too much about it, as I definitely recommend it, and I recommend not knowing too much about it.

I only got to see part of it a few months back, but had to leave at a really interesting bit. I want to see the rest!
