Sunshine

Imagine if an indie kid, whose brother died of Parkinson disease, who was abused by a preacher, who knows how to use a camera and special effects, decided to make a really interesting and well done film about the sun dying - then you've got Sunshine.


8.5 out of 10.

Seeing this Thursday. I'm still on the fence with Danny Boyle. But maybe this will sway me in the favorable direction.

Wow. What a complete failure of a thread. Shame. Though when I saw this film last night there were only 4 other people in the entire theater outside of my party. It's probably going to bomb here in the states.

But it was a fantastic motion picture.

The imagery consisted of probably the best sci-fi space visuals since 2001: ASO. And there were an almost uncountable number of awesome sci-fi concepts, stylings, plot devices, and truly satisfying tributes to a lot of other sci-fi greats from the past 50 years or so. All of which I had a ball discovering and relating.

It's a modern classic sci-fi film, and the best "space sci-fi" since Aliens. At the same time, it's not perfect. Some of the acting and writing wasn't super-great, and the basic plot wasn't entirely original. But other than that, I have no complaints. I'm especially pleased, because I'm wasn't a big Danny Boyle fan going into this picture. I am now.

9/10

This movie looks really, really, really good, but no one will see it with me.

Rental.

If you have it in a theater near you, JUST GO ALONE if you have to.

I'm serious man. If you're at all interested in this film, you absolutely HAVE to see this in theaters. It's probably going to end up being THE must-see theater film of the year. Between the visuals, art design, and I forgot to mention SOUND DESIGN, this is a movie-theater film through and through. Don't miss it is you can. Oh god, I can't believe I forgot to talk about the sound design before. It was perfect.

Do it. Gag them if you have to. Or tell them you're going to see Die Hard or something like that. That's how I got my one friend to go last night. I said we were seeing Transformers. 44-minute car ride later, muhahahha.

Strangely, Sunshine is one film where I'd actually reccomend spoiling the ending for yourself. The film takes a very "28 Days Later" - esque unique turn in the third act, that really turned off my friends last night, as well as a lot of people who've seen or reviewed this film. I happened to know where the story was going into the film, and I think I enjoyed it more because of it. Because I got past the "OMG WTF is going on now?" aspect in the third act, and got to really appreciate the sci-fi themes that it was exploring instead.

Not too far off actually.

But it's also sort of like if 2/3 through 2001, there was this crazy LSD lightshow and a portal to a Louis XIV bedroom and then....oh wait.

I saw this the day it came out

I enjoyed the first 2/3 a lot - 9/10

i had heard reviewers say the third act may disappoint - so I was prepared

the third act does go a complete different direction
third act gets a 4.5/10 from me.

I do recommend seeing it on big screen
with big sound

this is not - 2001

At the same time, it's good to remembe that the third act, while fairly different in tone, is the most completely logical and progressive place for the story to go. I loved it.

Awesome, I convinced Mama LMP to see it with me. So I'll watch 2001 today, then see Sunshine on Saturday.

Fantastic

that is only because it was presented to you that way

I can imagine completely different third acts
