Sci Fi Movie PodcastThis week on The Sci-Fi Movie Podcast, Rem, Jonathan and Ian dig deeper into TContact from 1997 and directed by Robert Zemeckis.

The Positive:
This was enjoyed by Rem, Ian and Jonathan, and all seemed to agree that it’s more oriented toward an older audience.  We liked how Robert Zemecki used actual footage from President Clinton in the film to enhance the sense of reality. The exploration of Science vs. Faith was particularly well done.

The Negative:
Some were critical of the movie because of the slow pace and the somewhat somber ending. Detractors thought the ending was a let down, though Ian and Rem thought it was perfect for the movie.  Matthew McConaughey just doesn’t work for Jonathan.  We found some of the math discussed in the movie didn’t work.

Overall:
This is great Sci-Fi, but the full breadth of the story might be lost on younger viewers.  Contact is thinking person’s film with heart.
