    - Dern is creepy
    - Plot goes nowhere
    - Folk songs are cheesy
    - Sets/effects cheap looking
    - Huey+Dewey named in wrong order (OCD anger)
    - product placement galore
    - botanist unaware that plants need light (?!)

    The best part of this movie was the drones, it's worth watching it just for them :) 6 years ago

    It is not fair or even prudent to compare this with 2001, there's only a superficial relation between them; in fact, this was a really nice watch because it poses an interesting question: in a world where human problems are solved and no one depends or needs plants anymore, why would someone would care to preserve them?
    Not a masterpiece but a good sci-fi with a nice ending.
    A little hippie-esque though.
