    I think there's a lot of inertia in the world. I reject scientific racism that says you can only write who you are, but trying to change the world with a book/movie is definitely pushing it. This movie is propaganda (for a good cause, but still) and it rides an uncomfortable line between fiction and morality.

    it goes from believable sci-fi movie about first contact into whacko land with "the machine" being built so quickly... and then into complete nutter territory when the 2nd machine turned up.

      Movie turns to shit here. We're supposed to believe there's a Manhattan Project-tier conspiracy, except instead of doing it to preserve the American way, it's purely to defraud the taxpayers? And there wasn't a single leak or whistleblower?

          There's a difference between ordinary corruption and major conspiracy. The machine is huge. How did they hide it? How did they keep all the contractors quiet? You need a cause beyond "acquire moderate wealth" to keep something like that secret.

      Sagan was already dead when the film came out. Art imitates life, his work is abortive like the space age. There are only glimpses, like when she's in the wormhole, of a world way above what they could deliver.

          laptops didnt really have radios back in 1996 when this was filmed.
          laptops with wifi built in didnt come along until 1999.
          maybe they could've gotten an early pcmcia card (wifi was officially released in 97) but it's unlikely. it looks like she has an ethernet cable (probably cat5) next to her

            Well, it's just bad story telling. So, like, they spent a trillion dollars building this mile high space machine and Jake Busey blows it up. So, now they're all like "Oh, no. We can't use the space machine,” but then this other guy's like "Hey, it just so happens, I built another identical trillion dollar space machine at my own expense, on the other side of the world." And we're supposed to believe no one noticed that? Well, I stood up in the theatre and I said "No! You can't go into space because the machine already got blown up by Jake wiener-a-Doody Busey!"

              the point there was that some country would recreate the machine on their own, most likely china (though in the movie's case, Japan). also that country footed the bill, not bond villian, he had the contract. it is a bit of a deus ex machina but not that unrealistic. look how folding phones were made then there were already spies caught stealing the process of making the screens

                They even mention earlier in the movie that Japan was foregoing have a candidate for first user of the device in exchange for manufacturing contracts. That's what gave them the info they needed to build their own copy.

    The dirty little secret of this movie is that, much like Raiders of the Lost Ark, the main character is completely inconsequential to the outcome. Without her, all of the events would have still taken place. The only thing of tiny consequence was her seeing the guy with the explosives so they knew what happened to the main device but they still would have gone ahead with the second device even if they didn't know why the first one blew up. Someone other than her would have met the alien, who would have been someone that person was close to instead of her dad.
    >But she heard the signal first
    It was strong enough that it would have been caught my many stations around the world, most of the automated to record such signals. She was completely inconsequential.

    Because for all its quality, it's boring as all frick, and ultimately turns into sugar-coated preaching in the third act. All the performances and cinematography are squandered to make a banal "Maybe science doesn't have all the answers" 150 minute slog. That's disappointing, the same way how Mission to Mars was disappointing: long, winded movie that with incredibly banal and heavy-handed message.

    Haven't seen Interstellar but this movie was awful. I went in thinking it was a serious drama about SETI workers and instead got a schmaltzy mess with CGI explosions, tired plot elements that Star Trek did 50 times already, and a horrible attempt at writing a 'faith vs science' clash
