I'm 1 hr. 15 minutes into this film and I felt like pausing and posting.
I'm not really enjoying myself. I'm not disliking it too much either.
Maybe I'm just not in the mood to be watching a movie right now.
I was never a Lost In Space fan of the TV series. I think it may have aired before my time - and while I can't honestly say Star Trek TOS was a great production quality, what I saw of Lost In Space really didn't interest me. There was nothing in it to compare with Captain Kirk, even if he was talking to cardboard half the time. Trek just had great writing.
Well I'm watching the modern 1998 movie with Gary Oldman as Mr. Smith and Heather Graham as Judy. (She is barely doing any acting thus far).
The monkey looks very fake, but is cute nevertheless. I'm sure that is what they were going for though.
Also, some effects, like the Robinson family floating while they engaged their hyperdrive, looked really fake.
I suppose Will is going to build a new robot, their last one being sacraficed to the spiders.
It was a creative way to get them stranded on that planet. I don't know if that's how the old TV show went, or they always got off-world only to get stranded on another.
Some of their technology doesn't look like it jives with other elements: their battle armor / hypernation suits' technology looks so far beyond a ship that needed traditional rockets to launch itself into space. I don't know.
The middle-aged daughter Penny - I can't determine if she is annoying or cute.
The dad and Maj. West seem like capable actors though.
I'll continue watching this in a little while. I needed a break. A really good movie would have kept me engaged.
BTW - I did see this in the theater probably 9 years ago.
