What the fuck with this movie. I mean, what the fuck. It's about this farmer who is absolutely obsessed with rockets and wants to become an astronaut, so he builds one in his barn. SOMEHOW, he manages to build a top-of-the-line rocket ALL BY HIMSELF and got these materials from a ROCKET JUNKYARD and the feds didn't catch on until he bought some high-grade oil that was supposed to be illegal.
The movie was a bore. It was totally unrealistic and the entire time I was waiting for the rocket to blow up and the guy (Billy Bob Thornton) to die. The most exciting part of the movie was when they first launched the rocket and it fell over and went sideways and he crashed and nearly died. Other than that it was a bunch of "oh daddy we know you can be our rocket man follow your dreams aghweuiaghdgjhkoagjekaghj" I WANTED EXPLOSIONS. WHY?!
I hate inspirational movies. No one ever dies and nothing exciting ever happens. It's a bunch of "follow your dreams" crap and in the end I always walk away feeling like I completely wasted three hours of my life. I wanted to see the Zodiac instead but my parents insisted I see Astronaut Farmer. Last time I go to the movie theatres with them!
