Warren, I acknowledge that the last five minutes of the movie are far and away the best five minutes of the movie. But everything that’s interesting about those five minutes has entirely to do with the memories it evokes of the first movie. Plus you have to sit through a whole lotta stuff to get to that five minutes. Did you notice, by the way, that in this highly advanced civilization, everybody’s living in an airport terminal? And that despite the fact that people can read minds, throw things telepathically and invent spaceships that go into hyperspace, the term “ultrasound” seems to be unknown to them?
