Don’t you hate it when you can’t think of the name of something? I can’t think of the name of a movie I liked when I was a kid. I think it came out in the 80’s. I thought it had the Coreys in it, but I didn’t see it on Netflix under their names. It’s 3 kids, one of them is Asian I think, and they build a rocket and it goes up into space and they get picked up by aliens and then they have to get home. I think they aliens were kind of green and blobular. Can anybody think of the name of this movie?
Okay, I just found it online. I love the internet. I typed in “movie kids build rocket to space” to Google and got the answer “The Explorers” immediately. What did the world ever do without the internet and instant gratification? And it turns out it was Ethan Hawke, River Phoenix, and Jason Presson. None of them are Asian, but one wears glasses. Here’s one of the aliens.
