We saw the movie today. John C. Wright discusses it here, in depth and excellently, but DO NOT read it unless you have seen the movie. In Wright’s own words –
…And here I must draw a line and ask no one to step across it who has not seen the film. My main problem is that, for me, the movie worked on so many levels, as hard SF, as pure storytelling, as religious allegory, I don’t know what to say without spoiling it for the virgin viewer.
So there are spoilers in the following column, and these will diminish your enjoyment of this masterpiece going in, I assure you. Only readers who have already seen the film are allowed to read further.
Go see it. I cannot, can NOT, recommend it highly enough.

Yeah, it was quite good. Had a lot of levels to it which mostly worked out, unlike most movies that aim for that.
Glad you liked it. Now, if you trust my judgement, allow me to recommend a book: THE MARTIAN by Andy Weir
The story is absolutely beautiful, which is a tremendous accomplishment for a Hard Sci-Fi film. The movie is a true work of art.
No wonder the smug, unaccomplished SJWs across the Internet panned it.
Loved it! One of the best movies I saw this year
I’m looking forward to seeing it! I agree with Mr. Wright that Seven Samurai is arguably the best movie ever made.
