    The Hunt "Jagten" (2012)

    Watched that last night. Really amazing. Emotionally brutal. I recommend watching it in blu-ray because the Danish bucolic settings are beautiful.

    Watched Pandorum

    I'm claustrophobic and hate the dark but I'm fascinated by dark/enclosed space movies. Among other things like tons of people being ejected alive into space (some awake, some still asleep) and one man toying with generations of humans ...the movie kept me interested, even with the 'twist'

    Can anyone recommend me a movie in the same vein as Solaris, Pandorum, Moon, Sunshine, Event Horizon etc? (Seen all the Aliens and am probably the only person that liked Prometheus)

    Have you seen the original Solaris? Dark City, maybe? THX-1138? The Cube series?

    Well, even though it isn't set in outer space, if you haven't seen John Carpenter's The Thing, that sounds like exactly what you're looking for.

    For other more earthbound options The Descent, Prince of Darkness and Pontypool are worth watching.

    Vincenzo Natali also directed a short from 1997 called Elevated that prefigured the Cube series.

    Nice, I'm going to add this to my list... :fistbump:

    Regis, now that I think about it, you might try searching imdb and tv tropes for #person ejected into space. :lol:

    Regis, you need to see the underrated Silent Running. John Carpenter's first movie Dark Star is worth a watch. I assume you've seen 2001: A Space Odyssey and maybe the crummy sequel 2010.

    If you're after bleak sci-fi you've kinda mined most of the space ones. There's other that aren't set in space itself like Gattaca, Logan's Run, Soylent Green, Children of Men, etc.

    Are really bad.

    Gattaca is pretty good. CoM is awesome.

    Agreed. Also, Michael Winterbottom's Code 46 is along similar lines to Gattaca, but much better IMHO.

    I just saw this and I highly recommend it.

    It was a pretty straight forward film albeit very powerful and devastating. Michael B Jordan's performance in particular stood out to me, but the mother and wife were also on point.

    EDIT: Also saw Wolf of Wall Street a couple nights ago and really enjoyed it too. Curious as to what everyone else thought of it.

    Saw it while on holiday with my family. It's excellent. The entire cast, but particularly Leo, do an amazing job. Good to see that Scorsese called in a favor from directing The Last Waltz and had Robbie Robertson do the soundtrack

    Jobs people only have in movies: architect, documentary filmmaker.

    Also, Her is really, really good, and full of disparate pleasures yoked to a singular artistic vision, and makes me certain I am wasting my life.
