Europa Report

Bucic, check your pm.

 

The movie was very, very believable to me. I like prometheus, but, unfortunately it turned into one of those cliche, slash em up horror film. There was hardly any imagination in that film.

 

I don't want to give anything away but yeah, the sacrifice the crew made for science was what I'd expect their level headed real life counterparts would have done. For people looking for a blood thirsty aliens stalking and pouncing on fragile human beings then, no, Europa Report isn't for you. If you're like me, love space and exploration and love the idea that there has to be something out there, and have been wanting to watch a film about the possibility of what's out there then this is for you.

 

It's low budget but well acted, and the visual is gorgeous and believable. Heck, Neil deGrasse Tyson is in it briefly and he was a consultant for the film.

You can watch the film via Amazon Prime.

The movie was ok. But i still think Prometheus was a million timers better

Cinematography ows a great deal to Prometheus. No, really. Thanks to the piece every other space ship crew from any other movie looks more professional. What a lot! :D

If you love space and exploration and if you have not watched it then you must. It just bumped Sunshine down to my second favorite movie of all time.

 

It was ok, but didn't really knocked me off. Sunshine is still way better.

 

Ps: The guy with hydrazine on the suit: I would've let him in. Hydrazine is not so difficult to decontaminate. Not worth the sacrifice..

So true! The "most important mission in the history of mankind" and they send those bozo's. They were all like, either there for the money or doing community service..

Watched it loved it. Prometheus was alright aswell but it got well earned criticism in my opinion. I enjoyed Sunshine aswell.

 

Moon is a good space/isolation movie if you haven't seen that.

 

 

 

EDIT: Looked like they were flying the ship with a TM WH too, anybody else notice this?

yeah Hydrazine expands at a ratio of 800:1, one would expect it to mostly evaporate without soaking the suit.

But the weirdest part was that it wasn't the hydrazine that kept the guy from returning to ship. It was when he pushed the Russian guy in and got spat out in turn. "Every action is matched by equal and opposite reaction " as Newton described but one would at least expect him to hold on to something. :D

 

Also Jovian radiation belt is way to strong to be deflected by any shielding we can come up with within this century. By the time we do, we should already be capable of interstellar travel. :)

Yeah, I also didn`t got the part where the guy doesn't hold on to something. The explanation I made up for myself is that he wanted it that way.. sort of foolish sacrifice

Moon is excellent! - One of the best movies of the last years in my book.

 

Also the the music.. (Clint Mansell):

haha yup. someone is a flight simmer perhaps.

 

And I loved Moon.

What's the point of creating a custom one when you have something very sufficient off-the-shelf :)

Speaking of which, wasn't it the Apollo 13 that featured THE worst joystick ever created, the Logitech Wingman Extreme Digital 3D?

Anyway, thanks for mentioning the Moon. I'm going to watch it again. Cargo was a mixed bag...

Lockout staring Guy Pearce was a pretty decent movie, too. I know rotten tomatoes gave it a really low rating but the movie was better than that. And hey, I use extreme 3d pro! :D

ED have been taking my money since 1995. :P
