Wow, nice catch. I agree.

But I didn't think it was really plausible for him to be strong enough to hang onto the co-pilot the way he did.

In this case, I think I'm willing to let the message outweigh how likely it was that he'd be able to do it. (Or at least the message that I got out of it.)
I wondered that too, even though I know I probably should have been paying attention to other things. (The apparent lack of people on the ship was also a bit interesting. It really wasn't all that large of a space ship, so I was wondering where everyone else went...drowned in garbage? Eek.) Anyway, the things I could think of were cloning, or some kind of artifical method. The rest of their technology was pretty advanced, so who knows.

My sister and I got along all right, but my aunt was just lost for the entire thing. I guess it depends on what you're looking for in a movie...I personally found the lack of dialogue at the start pretty engaging, because you have to watch for other cues. I admit I noticed a lot more of them the second time I saw it. ^^
That was the spirit of Cimarron
but they had a narrator in that movie
Yeah, I felt the were done exceptionally well which is why I was happily surprised. =D
