I watched a movie on Netflix on the weekend called ‘The Discovery’ - Science Fiction/Romance with Robert Redford and Jason Segel.  It hasn’t gotten great reviews but I thought it fit in very well with this forum.  It is about a man who has a scientific discovery of the Afterlife resulting in the deaths of millions of people who decide to cross over.  It deals with a death of someone who ends up stuck in an emotional loop and ultimately the retrieval of that person.  It was rather a slow movie but I thought it was worth it because of the subject matter and the fact that people are producing these kinds of movies which in turn gets more people talking about it.

I saw it a earlier this year, and I honestly didn't like it.

First, the "discovery" they mention in it wasn't a discovery at all.  It was EXTREMELY poorly described and in the end wasn't science in even the slightest way.
There was no scientific "discovery" in this movie at all.  In the end, they still didn't know if there was an afterlife or not. 

Kinda pathetic for a movie called "the discovery" to not have any actual scientific basis (even a fake sci-fi one) to back up it's own story.

If anything... it's a movie which will further take people away from reality of what we practice here.  I give it two solid thumbs down.  Sad  Sadly.

I wanted it to be so much more... and the ending... well, the ending was left waaaaaaay too open to interpretation.  Even the critics online couldn't agree with the ending.  LoL

Unless you're watching this movie for 100% entertainment value (and let's face it, most movies which touch on this subject line SHOULD be taken that way), then I'd stay far away from it.

I'm kind of happy you didn't mean the new Star Trek show with the same name on Netflix.

Xanth,

I agree, it was a bad movie!  They kind of glossed over the whole 'Discovery'. I watched it because of the subject matter.

Volgerle,

Don't worry, things pick up in 'Discovery 3 - The Search for Spock...in the Afterlife'!

Klingons aren't supposed to look that way!

Generally t.v. and move makers are more interested in money then the truth.

With Hollywood  it is about the money II guess  .   The new new Klingons are more than humans with some black paint on there faces.
