“Spaceship Earth”


Cult? Scientists? Hippies? All three?

The storied tale of the strange architectural marvel in the middle of the Arizona desert and the people who inhabited it as human subjects in a grand experiment are on full display here. Jumpsuits and all. From their beginnings in shipbuilding, to traveling the world to use their talents amassing a small fortune and trying to save the planet, the team’s individual journeys all led them to the same bio-dome. Fascinating to see not only the ecological but also psychological effects of the experiment. Did not expect the Steve Bannon cameo at the end, no matter how on-brand it was in the nature of his involvement.

Similar in excitement level and educational value to the EPCOT attraction.



Female version of “The Big Short?” Perhaps a hybrid between “Magic Mike” and “The Wolf of Wall Street.” J-Lo steals the show, as predicted. Film itself I felt could have been about 20 minutes shorter. Felt like it wandered a bit in the transition from second to third act. Overall, a solid addition to the cinematic stripper-verse, and not as bad as “Showgirls.”
