Anyone seen Sunshine?
Just wondering what everyone thought about Danny Boyle's latest?

The first twenty minutes or so got me worried that I had made a really bad decision to watch it. IMO it turned out alright but not as good as expected.

It only opens in September here. Sad

I guess it's a vain effort to ask for no spoilers (well warnings and Spoiler spoiler tags at least) then eh?

Yep, I noticed that weird delay. Seems like practically everyone other than North America get to see it by the end of this month.

Kinda stupid, they'll end up losing money.

I'll be seeing it as well when it comes out.  I'll probably see if I can get a UK release on DVD, but I'll support it.

Can't do the spoiler tag bit - couldn't figure it out! Bah! So won't talk about details.

But i can say that I really enjoyed this. A great nod to films like 2001 and Alien, but good in its own right. Maybe not everyone's cup of tea - but definately worth a watch.

A triumph of style over substance I thought.  It had some amazing visuals and terrific effects work throughout, and deserves a watch, but ultimately it left me a bit cold... Wink

I thought it was great. It was amazing visually and I liked all the actors as well. I found the 3rd act to be a little misjudged and to be honest unneccesary, but it didnt marr the film for me as I know it has done for others.

Another great effort by Danny Boyle. One of the few British directors actually making films for CINEMA.

It's already out in Australia too! I hope I don't have to wait too long for the DVD.

Here's another strange release difference, "Becoming Jane" starring Anne Hathaway is already released in Australia, but it does not get released in North America till August 3rd! What's the deal with that? Normally, the U.S. gets released first, followed by other major countries.

Nic Mall:  Thinking back I did like it. Didn't when it finished don't know why left me feeling a bit....mmm dunno. Anyways great film will definetly get this on DVD I agree on both counts. 30mins after I had seen it, I worked out it had started growing on me...

Sunshine is coming out on the Japanese Blu-Ray on 7th Sep this year: http://www.hmv.co.jp/product/detail/2579576

If you can tolerate the price, the Japanese release normally (to me at least) is usually the best in the world!
