Movie is said to consist of 156 shots. To put things in perspective - normal movies consist of roughly 5000 shots. Gravity will begin with 17-minute continuous shot of low-earth orbit. It's going to be movie unlike anything cinema has seen.

Just booked 2 tickets to see Star Trek as my dad really wants to watch it has anyone else watched or want to watch it?

I was suppose to get a free ticket from cineworld via the Star Trek game from Game but haven't had a email for it yet blooming cineworld so I ended up buying it instead.

I saw it, thoroughly enjoyed it, and I'm not a Trekkie. My mate who is a Trekkie also seemed to be practically having an orgasm while watching it, so whether you're a Trekkie or not, it looks like you'll love it :p

Too bad that even in the amazing looking film Gravity there is still sound in space.

I guess they tried to do it without sound and it was just too bad for drama. I think it's not worth to go for this small bit of realism, while sacrifacing cinematic experience.

 

 

OK now little more on Europa Report

 

 

"On Demand 06/27 & In Theatres 08/02" (given weird american date style I guess deal is sealed only for cinemas in USA)

 

http://io9.com/europ...ing-s-493192948 - positive reaction.

 

Movie is independent and was done "in close collaboration with NASA, JPL, SpaceX" and other representants of scientific community.

Saw Star Trek the other night, enjoyed it but I think the first of the new series hit it off with more of a bang.

 

Envious of Cumberbatch's voice. Did anybody else spot Robocop?

Also the new female crew member has the body of an amazon, perfect.

The plot focuses on John Oldman, a departing university professor who claims to be a Cro-Magnon (or Magdalenian caveman) who has somehow survived for over 14,000 years. The only setting is in and around Oldman's house during his farewell party, with the plot advancing through intellectual arguments between Oldman and his fellow faculty members. The movie is composed almost entirely of dialogue.

Not until July 2014, better than the original one.

I enjoy the first part of Hobbit but the second was alright, except for the Dragon scene.

I decided to watch this about a month ago. For a movie that literally takes place in one room and it's just a bunch of people talking and speculating - it's very good (something along the lines of 12 Angry Men).

Watched this today, fantastic film. Amazing for a film which is basically just a conversation between a few people. Had me drawn in much more than most of the hollywood blockbusters!

Thank you guys :) I appreciate that you watch the movie I suggest you to watch. Perhaps, this is an interesting movie, ideal for a relaxing philosophical evening.
