Lost in Space Movie

(Welcome to The Quarantine Stream, a new series where the /Film team shares what they’ve been watching while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.)

The Movie: Lost in Space (1998)

Where You Can Stream It: Hulu

The Pitch: In this big screen update of the classic 1960s sci-fi television series, the Robinson family sets off on a mission to find a habitable planet in order to save humanity as the Earth succumbs to pollution and global warming. But their trip is set off course by a terrorist organization using the opportunist Dr. Smith to carry out their nefarious plans to sabotage the mission. Stranded in uncharted space, the family encounters various threats, including aliens and temporal displacement, but their greatest threat might come from within their own crew.

Why It’s Essential Viewing: If you’re looking for an example of a movie that is misfiring on all cylinders, look no further than Lost in Space. Though we mostly like to point out movies in The Quarantine Stream that are worth watching for making some kind of commendable contribution to pop culture, in this case, this is a movie worth watching just to see how so many things can go so wrong, even when there are interesting elements that could have made for a good big screen reboot of classic sci-fi.

“Danger, Will Robinson,” is certainly a phrase that Lost in Space season 2 seems to be taking seriously. But this time, there’s no robot to warn the space-faring Robinson family about it. More than a year after Netflix debuted its glossy, big-budget reboot of classic 1960s sci-fi series Lost in Space, the Robinson clan is back to being lost and facing perilous waters. The latter quite literally, as they turn their spaceship into an actual ship in the Lost in Space season 2 trailer.
