Have you ever seen a rocket ship getting ready to launch into space- then fall on it’s side? That’s what Denver’s Nature and Science Museum’s new short film, ‘Journey to the Stars’ reminds me of. Whoopi Goldberg speeds through the narration progress while a series of computer graphics zoom across the screen, somewhat like an annoying flash game. So, there I was sitting, in the darkened theatre, my hand blindly scribbling across the notebook page while I tried to catch a few interesting facts to throw into my review. Unfortunately for me, there were no interesting facts to be found. The few sentences I did catch, well, they told the ever yawn filled story of the stars. One part that did catch my attention, though, was when Whoopi said something along the lines of this, “The sun will explode earth in about five billion years. But don’t worry, we’ll all be long gone by then.” I looked up, along with everyone else in the cramped theater, with a look on my face that said, “Did she really just say that?”Well, we all know there are three very important parts of an review. Age groups, what you liked, and what you didn’t. The age group rating- anywhere from little boys who fantasize about being astronauts to those tricky late teen years when those who find space the only escape from real life. One part I did like was when the lights dimmed and the show was over. There were many parts I didn’t like about the movie, so I would have to say, if you had to choose between watching the film or walking out onto the moon with out a spacesuit- choose the moon. It’s less painful, trust me.
