Since I heard of the project months ago I've been pretty optimistic because both Clooney and Bullock are at a stage in their career where they CAN act, number 1 and number 2, it's made by the Director of Children Of Men. I adore science fiction and this is right up my alley. I can't watch this on my TV.

There is an Indy Film coming out called Europa Report. Looks pretty promising as well. If a bigger trailer comes out and it picks up more steam it might be article worthy... but for now:

that would be so scary.

 

I wonder would nasa mount a rescue, given the cost of a launch and such, could they even mount a rescue?

I doubt they could.. As it is, there are only 2 launch windows a day and when NASA was running the space shuttle program, it usually took them about 2 or 3 days to get into the same orbit as the space station for docking. I have no idea what the time frame is like with the Russian space program, but even if they could get to the ISS on the same day they launched, all the prep work involved in getting a rocket ready for a rescue mission would take too long, at least a day.. by the time anyone gets up there, everyone will probably be dead. x_x

Yep, known of that project from before and follow em on FB.

 

I prefer 1 min trailers because they tend not to ruin the complete film.

Don't watch any of those newer trailers. Just go watch the movie. 

 

From early reviews, it seems very positive and technically sound. Cameron a few days ago said it was the best space movie he's ever seen and that this was the kind of space movie he's been wanting to see.

A review I heard highly recommended watching this in 3D. They said every aspect of this movie benefits from 3D and creates a truly immersive feeling.

Hopefully it doesn't induce a headache from all the camera motion I think is going to happen on screen.

That reminds me of Cliffhanger.. that movie wasn't even in 3D and I had to keep looking away because of the potential headaches.

Watched it last night in IMAX 3D. Seeing that high RT rating scared me and I thought maybe everyone's riding on the hype for it. I remember reading about it when they were filming it and been craving to watch it since, but this kind of popularity always puts me off. So I went in last night with no expectations. This is the best use of 3D in a movie. It was really good. Not getting into details, just watch it. Don't watch it as a background movie though <- you know who this statement is for!

I'll watch this movie and pay attention to it, but I don't think I could handle the 3D experience of it. I'm afraid I'd get motion sickness. :crap:

      I've gotten annoyed with managing my digital movie and tv series collection. It didn't bother me before because Netflix had pretty much everything. I'd never have to search for stuff on my hard drives or old dvd-rs because it would all be on Netflix. Now that Netflix has dropped about 50% of their content over the last couple years and will lose significantly more once all of Disney's properties are removed next year I've realized all my old dvds, blu rays and digital movies are all getting more use again. This is were plex comes in.
      I setup plex on my main pc, moved a bunch of movies and tv series into some folders and set plex to use those folders. This program auto grabbed all meta data for the content, images, etc and is basically a Netflix clone. I was shocked by how efficient this is. I installed the plex client app on my ps3, ps4 and roku stick and as long as my pc with the plex server is running I can now stream all my content to every tv in the house. It even keeps track of where i left off in a movie and i can resume it on a different device if I want.
      So I bought a 4tb hard drive yesterday and I'm going all in on this. I'm going to rip a bunch of my dvds and blu rays (the ones that don't have a digital copy) into mkv files and throw them on that hard drive for my plex. I'll try putting my old anime avi files (with hard coded subs from back in the old download days) in there to to see if plex can play those too.  Plex will even organise by genre to so it all works good. And plex is free.
      I was thinking about buying a nvidia shield because it can be used as a plex media server instead of just a client like the PlayStation/roku apps but it looks like it has some limitations with file types and my old anime files would definitely not play on it unless i converted every file thru some program called handbrake. I'll look into that some more.
      I figured I'd share this in case anyone else was getting annoyed with Netflix and every company making their own Netflix clones. Instead of paying every company a piece of the pie it'll be cheaper in the long run to just make my own Netflix with the content i already own that is already tailored to my preferances. And plex can stream outside of your home in 720p if you go on a road trip. I doubt I'll ever use that feature tho, especially with upload rates being shit with spectrum.
      Go to https://www.plex.tv to get the media server and the PlayStation/xbox store/roku/android to download the plex app. I know this topic seems like am advertisement but they're paying me nothing and it's all free downloads anyway. it just works and works great.

      I have noticed the selection isn't nearly what it used to be. Back in the day I'd search for a movie and 80% of the time it was on netflix. Now I don't even use the search feature because the last 20 movies I've searched for are never on there. Netflix used to be this great replacement to blockbuster with every movie made available, but now it looks like all the content rights holders and networks are pulling their properties off and either selling the rights to other streaming services like Amazon Prime or Hulu or they're making their own streaming service like CBS all access. I'm tempted to cut my cable and switch to streaming only services but I still haven't found a combo of apps or services that will give me the channel selection or content I fully want. I already have amazon prime and netflix. But to replace cable I figure if I go with Sling blue with HBO and starz, hulu, hbo go (part of my cable package now), and over the air HD antenna I'd have the majority of the channels I watch with cable except for science channel. I'd probably save about $30 a month over my current cable plan. Anyone use Sling?
      Also, with the companies pulling their content from netflix and making their own streaming services, maybe in the near future cable will actually be a good deal again compared to being nickel and dimed by all the different apps? I do like seeing different streaming services offering competition like Sling and PlayStation VUE, but I still feel on the fence about actually cutting off my cable for streaming only.

      If Nintendo had Pixar make their movies while maintaining control of the property so another "Super Mario Bros." live action fiasco never happens again, they could make some really awesome movies. But if Nintendo teams up with some companies in Japan that did the live action death note or attack on titan movies, this could lead to some huge flops.

      Click the link for the rest of the article. My first thought after reading the headline was that they wanted to make a star trek style enterprise ship. But instead its a fleet of nanoships. This sounds amazing and plausible.
