I hope you do. It's got elements of classic sci-fi: 2001, the original Solaris, and Alien, but also an bit from Event Horizon... which isn't a great comparison to be drawn to, in my opinion, at least.

If you have any complaints about it, it will be in the final 1/3, most likely.

I have never seen the original Solairs or Event Horizon. But I know what you mean.

I'm looking forward to it, and my expectations are modest. Being a Sci-fi fan (despite now having seen those 2 films) likely means I'll enjoy it more than the average viewer.

Good.

It was one of the first times I went into a movie knowing almost nothing about it beside the basic plot and I really enjoyed it. My only worry, like I've said before, is if it'll transfer as well to home viewing from theater viewing.

Back to impy's movie list, get some Coen Bros. stuff if you haven't already, like Miller's Crossing, Barton Fink, and The Hudsucker Proxy. Just as accomplished and great as their more widely-known films.

Speaking of the Coens, my adjusted best film list:

1. No Country for Old Men
2. The Big Lebowski
3. Miller's Crossing
4. Barton Fink
5. Fargo
6. O Brother, Where Art Thou?
7. The Man Who Wasn't There
8. The Hudsucker Proxy
9. Blood Simple.
10. Raising Arizona
11. Intolerable Cruelty
Not interested in The Ladykillers.

But a few months after seeing it, No Country has stuck with me longer than any of their other films, apart from Lebowski, while the exact opposite happened to The Man Who Wasn't There - hate to break your heart, Laz.

Your thoughts?

I still give it 4 out of 5 stars.

You know, for the kids.

You're gonna be the man who wasn't there in a few days.

I agree with Dalton. The Hudsucker Proxy is the most consistently underrated of their films.

And you've seen the original Solaris?! How did that happen?

No, I haven't seen the original Solaris, but I've read about the similarities and seen some shot-by-shot evidence.
