I’m really slacking this February. And it’s about to get worse when I go on vacation and see no movies for a long time. So it’s kind of a surprise I’ve seen two Brad Pitt movies in one month.
Ad Astra is a less entertaining Interstellar. I actually liked it quite a bit. But I’d rather have read the book, ya know? It’s a thinker, the nature of man and all that. How do the sins of the father affect the son? What constitutes letting go, sometimes literally.
Gorgeous visuals, a good solid performance from Pitt. And world building that is pretty solid for a non franchise film. It’s on Redbox already, I say give it a shot if you’ve got a couple hours to spare.
3 out of 4 stars.
