Yeah, I've read that they changed a lot in the movie (as usual), but I don't think I'll read the book.

In The Shadow Of The Moon.

Image
Come on! Whose heart doesn't swell at footage of the Apollo missions? What an endeavour! :smile:

The particular schtick of this documentary is that it is told through reflective interviews with the aging astronauts, making their experiences very immediate. But it doesn't matter if it's this, or From The Earth To The Moon, or The Dish... The great human achievement just has feel-good written all over it. Science [and engineering] rocks!

It was a National Geographic-BBC film on Darwin and his family. Darwin's Darkest Hour. Pretty factual as far as movies go.

Watched Iron Man 2 over the weekend. Good, with some great moments (mostly Downey under-the-breath humor, but the ScarJo action scene was MyTeeFine...). Also, Mickey Rourke was hilarious throughout.

Before that, How to Tame Your Dragon. Quite enjoyable.

Before that, Girl With The Dragon Tatoo. Great, highly recommended, go see it, if your town doesn't play it, then rent it as soon as it becomes available.

As a sci-fi enthusiast I finally came around watching this:

Pretty fucked up :shock:
(And I don't quite get the ending...)

Anyone enjoying time travel movies should get it, definitely a gem in my book.

Yeppers. The one with Vigo in it. I've seen a couple of clips...it has some of those really "uncomfortable" moments in it.

I haven't seen it yet, either, but the book was BRILLIANT.
I'm a huge Cormac McCarthy fan though.

I'd like to read the book too, perhaps after I've watched the movie. I don't like watching a movie after reading a book...because I just sit through the flick and think, "Well that's not; right, wrong, why'd they leave that out, etc..."

Oh I liked this one a lot - in principle. A perfect example of how a good, hard-core sci-fi movie can be done with zero budget. Unfortunately, it fell apart half way through when the plot became unintelligible; such a pity! I read somewhere that the writer wanted it to be confusing, to have the audience experience the same state of mind as the time-travelers in the film. I think it would have been better if you could understand what was actually happening, though.

I think I've seen that... or maybe not. :scratch:

I've watched so many Woody Allen movies, I lose track. Many of them are so alike.



Yeah, Woody got pomo a few times. He talks to the camera in a few of his movies... or has another actor do it, like in "Whatever Works".

As regards The Road, another huuuugely impressed reader here, but not seen the film.

Got Primer, ain't watched it yet.

Ah, that makes me feel better actually :lol:
So the movie can't be understood in its entirety then?
