The Space Between Us is a light drama with a touch of romance and sci-fi. It’s about a human boy born on Mars who returns to Earth. He hooks up with his penpal girlfriend and goes on a quest to find his father. It’s essentially a coming-of-age story about a boy who grew up in a sheltered environment and a girl that doesn’t quite fit in at school. Even though I was expecting a sci-fi story, I still enjoyed the movie because I liked the interaction between the two main characters. The Space Between Us is available now on digital HD and will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on May 16th. Note: Universal Pictures Home Entertainment sent me a movie for review on my dad blog.

The story takes place in the future after decades of war with aliens called Scavs. Jack, Julia and Andrea are a few of the remaining humans left on a post-apocalyptic Earth. My son and I love the movie. The story is excellent and the special effects are dazzling. Oblivion (Universal Pictures) opens in theaters on Friday. Continue reading for the full review.
