Cosmos ★½

This is a fucking joke, right? The extra half star is worse than one star in this case. Here’s why.

It starts off normal enough and I was enjoying myself and then around 30-40 minutes in it gets overwhelmingly earnest but once we moved past these guys weird dysfunctional is it really platonic? relationships I thought things would get better when we got back to the sci-fi plot. I was wrong.

Rapidly it all devolved to the point I feel like I was punked and the goal of this exercise was the next cult classic cringefest not to actually deliver on the setup. That is not how cult classics are made.

I’m left to think they want a 1 star review here and I for one will not give them the satisfaction, so they get 1.5.
