    I need to rewatch this. When I watched it before, there were a few things that didn’t make sense, but your explanations definitely helped. Thanks!

    It’s a great point that you brought up about this film and Event Horizon potentially existing in the same universe…I hadn’t thought about that before. Not sure how the connection between those films slipped past me, I usually look for that kind of stuff 😉 As an example, I’m usually the guy who always argues that Ridley Scott’s Alien and Blade Runner exist in the same universe, just at different points in history.

    Never understood why people hated this movie so much…I enjoyed it a lot. Ben Foster and Dennis Quaid are great in it, Antje Traue does a great job in her first English speaking role (and she is HAWT), and the plot is a moderately unique / new idea. It’s the same year that brought us Avatar, Star Trek, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, X Men Origins: Wolverine, Twilight: New Moon, Terminator: Salvation, Angles and Demons, Fame, The Last House on the Left, Friday the 13th…and so on. Most movies that year were either sequels or reboots. What was it that Mike Stoklasa said in one of his RLM Plinket reviews? Nearly 80% of movies from the last 20 years have been sequels or reboots of existing intellectual properties…damn. It’s sad but true when you look back at the titles on a year by year basis.

    Only 5 flicks stood out to me in 2009 as having really daring or unconventional ideas for mainstream release: Pandorum, Moon, District 9, The Road and Anti-Christ. As for the rest? Pardon my frank language here, but they were total sh*t on celluloid (or digital media…poop on a ‘puter, if you will).

    Great video Cecil, looking forward to the next one!
