there’s a long scene in this stupid movie where Our Hero is yammering stupidly about how humans aren’t meant to be caretakers–caretaking lame–we’re supposed to be explorers and go off to find other planets.
to me this sounds a lot like a three-year-old who’s just carelessly busted up a toy and demands an instant replacement.
didn’t it even begin to strike these scriptwriters that this attitude is exactly what’s gotten us into the climate change mess we’re in, and our children will be in, and their children will be in possibly forever? instead of taking care of the planet we inhabit, apparently we are supposed to just go rampaging around the universe, breaking toy after toy, planet after planet, and never ever learn the fundamental lesson: if you don’t take care, you can’t have nice things.
who wrote this fucking script anyway, the Koch brothers?
