This insightful, meditative story depicts human beings behaving just exactly as you would expect in an actual time-travelling war with aliens: confused, disorganized, illogical, impulsive, and inconsistent! (Yes, much like our war on COVID! So it’s profound on that level too.) The uncanny realism did suffer a little when Chris Pratt employed fisticuffs to defeat an alien monstrosity with several times his mass, artillery tentacles, and the temperament of a rabid wolverine on amphetamines, but by golly if I didn’t just choke up a little bit anyway. I’m not crying, you’re crying!
(The “Pitch Meeting” guy pitches/pwns The Tomorrow War in a very entertaining way, one of his best. “Interesting strategy!”)
