    Yes! It completely drew me into the situation. By the end of it, I couldn't shake the feeling of "what if I was stranded in space"? Bummed me out a little, but I chalk that up to the effectiveness of a damn-good trailer.

    Right? One of the best trailers I've seen in some time.

    The other trailers for it are fantastic as well:

    Whoa. I hadn't heard of it, but I'm definitely intrigued.

    I recall seeing a trailer for this before, but I don't think it was one of those above. What's particular effective, is how they play out as seemingly just one take with no cuts (and in the second one posted, how the camera glides seamlesly out of Sandra's helmet). While digital effects can be great for creating the impossible (dinosaurs, giant robots, etc) you still *know* what you see isn't real, so you still feel kinda detached IMO. OTOH, using it for creative camera work can really help drag you in, as long as it's used sparingly and not too gimicky.

    Agreed. It's some of the best CGI work I've seen--both from a technical, as well as a creative perspective.

    I love that the film seems to be such a compact story--in the vein of Moon.

    Other great things: the music, and the sound. LOVE that there is no sound in space (obviously other than their voices, breathing, etc). Always drives me crazy in sci fi movies when there are loud explosions in space. In this case, I also think that it raises the tension quite a bit.

    watched goodfellas again last night. started late and planned to only watch half and finish it later, but that proved impossible. damnit i love that movie.

    still makes me mad that DWW won the academy award that year.

    That should make everyone mad. Or nauseous. Maybe both.

    There was a lot going on with this film and it felt like a book more than a movie...I enjoyed it a lot. I have my opinion of what was going on that might not have seemed to obvious but i think fits.

    It is definitely worth the watch as is only god forgives...very happy with peoples reminding me of these movies when I wasnt paying attention earlier this year when they came out.

    admission - was ok. im a big paul rudd fran, and he was solid. so was tina fey. but i had thought it was going to be more of a comedy, and it did not provide all that many lulz. cute movie though, and my wife enjoyed watching it with me.

    broken city - standard mark wahlberg formula, but i knew it would be, and i enjoyed it. decent story, good watch.

    Stitchy, have you seen Casino (1995) ?

    [​IMG]

    Scorsese made it after Goodfellas and I thought Casino was the better of the two films. Deeper story

    Have you ever seen Marooned (1969) ?

    [​IMG]

    It's an older film but was done exceptionally well for its time, despite the mid-range rating on IMDB. Well worth a look.

    I didn't really care for Drive, so I wasn't planning on catching OGF, but after hearing about people walking out on it I'm getting curious and plan to see it soon.


    I too recently rewatched Goodfellas and as I believe I've only seen Casino once I feel like rewatching that as well.


    Just looking at the cast list on that poster makes me want to see it.


    ***


    Caught this yesterday: [​IMG] - not sure why, as I thought the first one was rather weak. The sequel though managed to smash my extremely low expentations. How it can get an IMDB rating of 6.2 and how Liam N (or anyone really) wants to be associated with that poor excuse for a movie is just baffling. Avoid.
