In order to appreciate or even enjoy this film you almost have to know beforehand what happened to movies after 1977. You see films like Star Wars and then Raiders of the Lost Ark cranked up the pace and excitement level so much that films of this style ceased to exist. There was this small pocket of time post 2001 and pre George Lucas where these cheaply made space melodramas were released. Because of that some 40 years later we have this film...
Now on Space Station 76 it was an extremely interesting ride back in time. I am just not sure it was a place I wanted to revisit. I will give kudos to the prop department bringing in just about everything authentic you can think of from that era. I kinda liked it for that reason.

It is not an easy film to watch for it paints a picture of 2 troubled human beings and how each, in his and her own way, attempts to cope with the demons that continue to haunt them from their unhappy past to the present. I give an 8 with special kudos to the acting talents of the two main participants.… Full Review »
