    One hour into Sunshine, and you're able to whittle it down to a disaster movie. Impressive.

    Then it's no wonder we disagree so sharply on Prometheus. I'm looking for structural coherence and nuance; you're looking for something else.

    I didn't say anything about Sunshine's structural coherence. So far so good on that account. There, I said it.

    Then why is it that Prometheus leads to so much discussion? And Sunshine hardly any? Is it that the name "Sunshine" sucks almost as bad as the name "John Carter"? Once people got over how bad Prometheus is as a movie, some of them began pondering the major themes of the movie. "Sunshine," as a disaster movie in space with some kind of moral about the fate of the first Icarus, does not have the same effect.

    The movie keeps whittling down the crew members. That's pretty much the extent of it.

    Girl? I think she was the oldest person by far on the ship.

    Enjoy your thread.

    Are we still on this? My God.
    Look at the movie CRITICALLY.

    WHY are the characters dying?
    What does Pinbacker represent metaphorically?

    What's the main conflict of the movie on a macro level?
    It isn't merely Scarecrow going mano e mano with Sinestro.

    I want to watch Sunshine now.
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.
    Real life awaits and she is a demanding mistress.
