Not since I sat down to watch Pitch Black with my husband have I been so pleasantly surprised by a low-budget sci-fi movie. Like with PB, I was expecting a mindless creature-feature to pass a bit of time. However, this story delivers with some good acting and, in my opinion, a good story/plot. I won't go into what I think really made this movie click as it would be spoiler-y, but I definitely recommend it for those who like their sci-fi with a bit less boom and a bit more intelligence.

If you have Netflix, either get the DVD or stream it, it's definitely worth your time.

"I thought," said Piglet earnestly, "that if Eeyore stood at the bottom of the tree, and if Pooh stood on Eeyore's back, and if I stood on Pooh's shoulders----"

"And if Eeyore's back snapped suddenly, then we could all laugh. Ha ha! Amusing in a quiet way," said Eeyore, "but not really helpful."

"Well," said Piglet meekly, "I thought----"

"Would it break your back, Eeyore?" asked Pooh, very much surprised.

"That's what would be so interesting, Pooh. Not being quite sure till afterwards."
