    At times it felt like 2001 mixed with Buck Rogers and Days of our Lives.

    If anyone is looking for a straight up hard sci-fi watch Europa Report, low budget but doesn't feel it and it feels more out there/isolated despite them never leaving our solar system.

    I loved and it blew me away (others hated it, so be warned) and has stays away from the starry eyed Carl Sagan outlook to show what a real exploration of the universe would probably go down.

    A bunch of great unknowns actually portraying how scientists/explorers would behave for real, Sunshine is a good example.

    Something that gets on my tits is when is when astronauts aka world class scientists and pilots are asking questions that would have all been answered probably by themselves before launch. Nothing takes me out of a film like it. Scripts are better are saying nothing here.

    Find a better way of showing it son, don't tell me!

    2001 doesn't expostion **** and we have to watch what its happening and deduce for ourselves.

    HMV dispatched my bluray last Tuesday and it arrived Wednesday. Preordering it online seems to have been the best choice. They had 20% off at the time too so it was less than €15

    Sorry yes was just going on what Goldendiscs told me on Friday but just went into HMV/xtravision in blanch and picked up the digibook two disc edition for 24.99 which is a decent price as Amazon are looking for £20 for it.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,202 ✭✭✭colossus-x


    One of the reasons I like sci-fi movies is cause they usually come with a good soundtrack and here is no exception. Can't get enough of it at the minute.

    Why did this movie SO smell of 2001 ? Was it deliberate? Couldn't be just influence!

    If there was one thing that was so ridiculous it was the TSAR robot when it was running. I mean come on, it does not take an engineer to know that 2 rectangular shaped pegs does not an efficient running machine make! So so silly.

    But I loved it overall anyway :D

    :mad::mad:

    I had it preordered on amazon and with delivery I paid €33 for it ...

    Watching it again for the first time since seeing it in the cinema. 2 minutes in and the soundtrack just grabs you. Hans Zimmer is a genius


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,382 ✭✭✭PhiloCypher


    Just watched it again on a 4.3 inch super amoled screen guys. Still amazeballs.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,545 ✭✭✭tunguska


    Out on DVD today I think? Cant wait to see it again. The fact that its still on the first page of this forum 5 months after its domestic release tells me that its a pretty special movie.


  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators Posts: 3,090 Mod ✭✭✭✭ktulu123


    Picked up the book version earlier, looking forward to watching the extras :D

    I saw a tweet from Brian Cox

    I can imagine his smiley face, god I'd love to punch him ... :P

    Oh I would love to attend that :( No tickets available though unless you pay for a box at over £170 per person.

    This happened last night according to the official site. God damn it, I would have gone, no question about it. £170 is a steel IMO for such an evening's entertainment; Interstellar with live score conducted by Hans Zimmer, pre-screening talk with Zimmer, Chris Nolan and Kip Thorne. If anyone sees any more dates for it can you post it in this thread please?

    Edit: Actually, this was quite likely a once off, looking at all the elements that were in place for it (Zimmer, Nolan, Thorne) I don't see it being a regular thing. F**k it anyway.

    Also would've gone. I already flew to UK just to see it when it came out so for such a special occasion as this I'd definitely go again.

    It would have been a costly outing no doubt, but one I would never regret parting with money for. I would have loved to get over to see it in on IMAX in England, I imagine it was well worth it yeah?

    Yeah flights were less than €30 return. I only booked to see it once but after I came out I went straight back to the queue to see it again. If you're every in Manchester or London and they're playing a 70mm IMAX screening of anything just go see it.

    haha the Honest Trailer is funny, always enjoy those. Hans Falling asleep on the organ haha. Pain in the arse, I only heard about the Interstellar Live event the day it was on. Would of made the trip over too. I'd say it was amazing with the live Orchestra

    I loved the movie but I am aware that it had many flaws, that trailer was hilarious though.
