Thoughts on Space Station 76
Characters/Performance – Captain Glenn is a depressed, social awkward frustrated by the lack of promotions man who pushes everyone away on the ship. Jessica is the new crew member trying to make friends only finding herself dealing with jealousy and other issues from the current crew. The rest of the characters included a bored wife, hardworking engineer and a young lonely girl.
Story – The story follow social situation on a space craft set in the 70s, it is just an oddball drama. We have plenty of generic storylines to follow but nothing overly fancy for us to follow or get interested in, this would have worked as more of a full-blown comedy.
Comedy/Sci-Fi – The comedy is mostly quirky through the film not making you laugh at any jokes just odd things that happen, the sci-fi idea is interesting seeing this idea of space travel from what is meant to be the 70s is fun to watch.
Settings – The setting is good for this film because it is a time and a solo spaceship which works for what it is trying to do.
Final Thoughts – This is slightly misleading film, it is a lot of just social situations on a spaceship where people now live, we don’t get an idea of the mission the plan or the point.
Overall: Boring film in all honesty.
