DADDY: Who was your favourite character?

LILLY: Alex (Lance Guest) because he didn't give up.

DADDY: He is another reluctant hero who comes through in the end. 

LILLY: Yeah.

DADDY: I likedhis alien navigator Grig (Dan O'Herlihy) and Centauri (Robert Preston).

LILLY: They were awesome too.

DADDY: What was your favourite moment?

LILLY: When they had the big space battle because it was fun to watch and I thought they would die because they didn't haave a plan.

DADDY: They were outnumbered but brave. I liked the bit when Grig and Alex showed each other family photos and Grig had hundreds.

LILLY: That was quite funny.

DADDY: Would you recommend it to your friends?

LILLY: Yes because it's awesome and a great movie to watch with family and friends.

DADDY: I think so too..
DADDY: How many stars would you give it?

LILLY: I'm giving this one twenty five.

DADDY: The same for me. I was quite good at arcade games when I was a kid but I was never asked to join the Rylan Star League.
