Where to watch

Movie information in first post provided by The Movie Database

Saw this one last night.

It's a good sci-fi with a decent backstory. Can be slow at times, but it's still good.

The set designers could have done better with some things. In a few places you swear that toilet paper or tissue paper was used to construct parts of the ship.
I was going to check this out this weekend on Amazon but at $5.99 for 24 hour HD rental I thought not. I will wait till the price comes down. :D
I really enjoyed this one so it will be worth the time watching if it comes around. I also did notice the paper especially when he arrives at the tail of the ship
