Cocoon : The boat ascension

The boat ascension

For me, one of the most magical moments in cinema, it is visually stunning and coupled with the magnificent Horner (RIP) score - it's definitely in my top ten moments in film! I love the part just before the boat enters the ship, showing Ben and Mary (still unsure if she's made the right decision) looking on in wonderment, a reconciled Joe and Alma smiling widely, and then the four anteraeans are seen, with one of them waving to their friends. A true feel-good moment.

agreed...magical moment!

Re: The boat ascension

I found that scene ridiculous.
What would aliens do with a half working boat?
Couldn't the transfer to alien ship happen at some remote place, on land, like in Close Encounters of 3rd kind?
