(PG-13) ★☆☆☆☆

This deliriously cruddy sci-fi flick is barely watchable. In 2079, Snow (Guy Pearce), an ex-CIA operative, gets strong-armed into a trip to a space station prison that’s been taken over by its inmates. Oh, and the president’s daughter (Maggie Grace) needs rescuing. There’s a great deal of point-blank handgun killings, monotonous pacing, bewildering editing and overall terribleness. It’s as if the Mystery Science Theater 3000 guys paid the filmmakers to make this film for heckling purposes.

The Shins

The weather was so unseasonably cold, windy and rainy that I found myself hoping that the poolside concert, which I’d been looking forward to for months, would just go ahead and cancel already. But the worst of it subsided, and the Albuquerque, N.M., rockers played at 10:06 p.m., right on schedule. Sure the guitarist was wearing a fur-lined parka and the drummer had his hoodie pulled over his head, but the second I heard the first strains of opening song “Kissing the Lipless,” I transcended the cold.
