Ignore the cheesy sci-fi poster ad campaign, but oh my god Sunshine was incredible and barely got any sort of theater release. I don’t know why just suddenly in the lat few years I’ve become a sci fi fantatic. Maybe I am getting sick of the unrealistic rom com stupid comedy stuff, and I’d rather have the unrealistic space travel/time travel alien stuff. I love the director Danny Boyle (also did Trainspotting) and with writer Alex Garland makes fucking awesome movies (they also did 28 Days Later and The Beach*). The story is not a new one, kinf of a combo of 2001, Mission to Mars, and my favorite book ever, Season of Passage. I sincerely hope Alex Garland goes back to writing novels, but at a book signing once he claimed that from the paycheck he got from selling the rights to The Beach, he never has to work again. Damn.
* The Beach is a very underrated movie, and one of the better movies adapted from a novel (also awesome).
