Come onnnnn. We all think out loud sometimes. Especially when one is on their own.

EDIT: Plus if you didn't notice, astronauts have the habit/protocol of saying whatever they are doing because Houston is listening. they had to ask for permission from Houston to do anything as well. So maybe she is just saying errrrthing with the hope that Houston is listening yo.

The argument could go even farther; why is anyone talking in that movie, besides Clooney-Bullock interaction? Some kind of bridge between dr. Stone and us, the audience, must be there.

Yeah I'll be honest, that was a little annoying, and not just the communication with Houston point Ninja made.

The 9/10 or whatever I gave it functions almost purely on the visuals, otherwise it sort of hands everything to the audience in big flashy gold letters.

That seems so empty. 9/10 bombshell... but only for the visuals... :|

You mean when she's talking to dead Matt asking him to find little Sarah in heaven (that was sweet man) or the part when she is in the Chinese shuttle trying to find the right buttons?

I wanted more emotion, believe it or not.
The whole woof scene was good, but it came off as a little cheesy and it felt like they were trying too hard. The last scene and her last statement about it being "one helluva ride" made me wish I cared more about this person and knew her a little bit better.
Just my opinion.

I didn't say only for visuals, I said the film functions almost purely on the visuals, which implies the other elements of the film (performances, storytelling, etc.) are present but not as important. That doesn't mean there's no value in the non-visual effects storytelling or context, it's just very basic in those areas.

no i mean things like when she said 'i am ready' right after dead matt
it's supposed to be like for confidence but it was one thing too many that she said that marked the arc's peak little too literally

omw prince, after dead Matt she made the decision to live. But now that she's made the big decision, she actually has to follow through yo. So who can blame her for psyching herself up a bit, especially for something she hasn't done before.
I don't care if you think it is bad screenwriting, it doesn't take anything away from the events that follow yo.
