Control, if you're listening, and you probably are 'cause you're creepy that way, can I just rant for a second about the micromanagement? We're not blood-filled meat puppets. I come from a long line of plumbers that can fix a shower, but I can't. Well, Hugh doesn't shower anyway - he's British. It's not being critical, you're just a very under-bathed nation; everybody knows it.

For what it was intended to be, it succeeded on every level. 'Life' has nice camera angles, long shots, an all around superb cast, good graphics and a nasty alien (less anthropomorphic than usual which is a relief). Best of all, an ending that was worth the wait. There are many people, as usual, whining about realism. They watch trailers and build movies in their head that weren't on offer! Also, quit comparing this film to R. Scott's 'Alien.' There is nothing in common. Alien is set in the future, in deep space on a mining vessel that intercepts a distress beacon from an derelict spacecraft. Life is set in modern day Earth orbit where some astronauts play with martian soil. Xenomorphs are not comparable to 'Calvin' the space booger at all. 'Life' enticed me enough to go to the theater and I was not disappointed namely because of the cast, the ending and the first fatality. Don't go in expecting Interstellar or Prometheus. This is more like Event Horizon meets Gravity, far fetched but in our time, on our doorstep. Not epic but certainly worth viewing with some slack given.
