‘Oppy’ will fill you with the spirit of exploration
Every week, Kristopher Pollard from Milwaukee Film and Radio Milwaukee’s Dori Zori talk about movies — because that’s what you do when you’re Cinebuds .
This week, we talk about an out-of-this-word documentary called Good Night, Oppy! The film documents, with the aid of amazing visuals by George Lucas' Industrial Light and Magic, NASA's mission to put two adorable rovers on Mars.
This 90-day mission was expanded to a 15-YEAR mission, and the film explores the roller coaster ride that ensues. Despite my (Kristopher's) intense fear of outer space, we made it through. And all the better for it. The film really creates a connection between the viewer and these two robots. Not since Wall-E have we loved a couple of rovers so much.
