I finally saw Capricorn One
last night. You know, the 1978 movie about a mission to Mars being faked. Well, I enjoyed it. I expected it to be more about the mission itself rather than an investigation and a chase across the desert to find the escaped astronauts, but it was a pretty engaging movie none the less. My only major complaint is that I wish the movie had dealt with the public's reaction to a faked mission to Mars. At the very least, I wish we got to see more of what happened once Col. Brubaker showed up at his own funeral for all to see. By the way, what happened to the other two astronauts?
Have any of you seen this movie? What did you think of it? I hear they're doing a remake.
