Hello, Movie Buffs! 
     Directed by novice director Lennart Ruff, written by relatively new writers Max Hurwitz (Unabomber) and Arash Amel (Grace of Monaco and A Private War), and released by Netflix, Titan (2018) is a sci-fi thriller set on Earth in 2048. With Earth being overpopulated and ridden by violent conflicts, scientists look towards Saturn’s moon Titan as a new home for humanity. Under the direction of Prof. Martin Collingwood (Tom Wilkinson) humans experimentation on begins in order to help them adapt to Titan’s extreme surface conditions. Air Force pilot Rick Janssen (Sam Worthington - Avatar) and others volunteer for the project but none of them nor their families are prepared for the horrendous side effects that come with the experimentation.

     While Titan was an entertaining and worth watching film, it was quite obvious that this is director Ruff’s first feature film. The acting was great all around and the film had all the makings of a great film but the screenplay and editing were lackluster. However, the story is nice and has a good premises, desperate times call for desperate measure and here people are willing to go to extreme measures in search of a habitable planet. The changes and side-effects that Rick and his colleges undergo is nothing short but fascinating to watch. Although, some scenes were long and dragged out, while others seemed to contain plot holes that were never really answered by the end.

     If you’re a fan of cheesy sci-fi B-films like me then you will certainly enjoy this one, especially since the ending is left open for a sequel film. Despite the issues and negative criticism, I enjoyed this film. If it were under the direction of more seasoned filmmakers then I believe it would have been even more successful then it initially was.

"No one attempts the impossible without belief in something greater than themselves. Even if that something is a someone."
- Prof. Martin Collingwood
