This movie was not high on our list but ended up in our laps over the weekend. After viewing, it should be high on yours!
Sci-fi thriller with a tip of the cap to "Alien" but much more of a psych drama and heady piece than that wonderful film. Dennis Quaid is at his best here, the aliens are very good, and the views are as well. We even had to take a popcorn break in the middle just to catch our breath.

I have no seen this flick, but does sound cool:
"Pandorum (2009) R Upon rousing themselves from hyper-sleep, Payton (Dennis Quaid) and Bower (Ben Foster), a pair of crewmen assigned to work on a spacecraft, discover startling gaps in their collective memory -- including who they are and what, exactly, their mission was in the first place. The plot thickens when they realize they're not the only ones on board the ship. Cam Gigandet co-stars in this gripping sci-fi thriller."
It's available on Netflix demand.
Gonna watch it.
