Jason goes to Bad Movie Night and watches MISSION TO MARS

Brian De Palma took a break from imitating Hitchcock to make this imitation of Stanley Kubrick. And his result is absolutely Kubrickian--if 2001 had been sentimental claptrap. He tries so hard to recapture the style of 2001, and in many ways he does and I actually want to like MISSION TO MARS. But he hangs it all on this ridiculously maudlin story which boils down to 'get your ass to Mars because your wife is dead.'
