But anyways, Venus.
This is a weeeird movie. By all rights, the plot, the style, the acting...it screams 1950s. But somehow this was made in the 80s?! What is with the weird lettered shirts? Why put the crew to sleep until they launch? They say it's so they'll be in perfect shape for the trip but...unless they're not going for awhile, again, why? Why put the crew into a coma for a good night's sleep? Just...weird.
And the golden teddy bear spacesuits...
This movie has way too much sitting around and playing chess. Someone got their pacing from 2001. The difference being, that movie was good.
Teehee, a planet populated by bouncy ball bat spiders. That are data recorders! Yeah, still weird.
"Someone with a very different vision came up with this movie." Kinda sums up all my feels right there.
So they discover a message from Venus, go to Venus, find nothing but remains of a civilisation and discover that they were going to attack us, but got themselves destroyed before they could? You're telling me this entire movie is about something that DIDN'T happen? Oookay.
What's a Herringway?
