'Ad Astra' shoots for stars, but feels lost in space
Outer space has been the setting for some recent compelling films, particularly "Gravity" with Sandra Bullock and "The Martian" starring Matt Damon.

Unfortunately, "Ad Astra" gets bogged down with constant voice-overs from Pitt talking about his character's feelings. Liv Tyler plays Pitt's love interest, who appears only in a few minutes of flashback sequences. Probably the biggest disappointment is Tommy Lee Jones, who also has very little screen time for such an important character.
