I said I would not see this movie, but I did in the end, so help me god, I did. Yes, it is as awful as I thought it would be. A pointless remake, with no redeeming qualities whatsoever. Absolutely nothing in this movie makes sense. Why do the poor commute from Australia and why does Australia have no Australians in it? Why is it cheaper to core through the earth than it is to fly around it? Why, why, why? And most of all, why does the script lack even the tiniest shred of humour? Even John Carter (of Mars) was exponentially better than this. May the hand of PKD reach down from the heavens and mightily smote this movie. See it at your own peril.

“Doctor… Who? Pah! I am the Captain! Sherbet lemon? Now step into my wardrobe. What? Yes, of course it’s smaller on the inside you blithering idiot!”—The Captain!
“There’s Ed, Op Ed, Op, and then there’s this blog.”—The Captain!
“Well done son, keep it up!”—The Captain’s Mum
“People will think you’re a nerd.”—The Captain’s Dad
“I hate this!”—vox populi
“I don’t care.”—The Captain!
“Who the Hell is the Captain anyway?”—Roy Mathur
“The Captain is not an adventurer, rock star and supervillain with a penchant for G&Ts, C7H10N4O2 and insanely loud music. His exploits do not usually involve arriving just in time to save the multiverse (or thoroughly bugger it up) in a Vimana shaped like a wardrobe. And, contrary to the wanted posters, he is certainly not a multi-tentacled cyborg from the 27th dimension.”—Anonymous
“Finally an honest review…great!”—Shayne T. Wright
