-The big part ( if not the most ) of Sci-fi stories goes on on the spaceship.
- I don't pretend to be a great cinematolog, but I can't directly remember any Hollywood movies without les or more love-story line ( even Bamby has one)
- Back to our "preferable" thema : did you really expected in a Hollywood sci-fi movie a love story between two males?
I'm affraid, it's quite the same story with many-many another films.
Well, it can be not so good, if all the two comes out around the same time.

They don't. Sandra (and Clooney)'s film is in post-production. Keanu's project is stuck on some studio's shelf aka 'the development hell'. so they're not gonna be released at the same time. the second one might not happen at all.

er... True Blood?(although that's not Hwood, but HBO, which is pretty close) Moon? Star Trek, both the TV series and the last 'long feature' film? true, in the last two titles there are only hints, but... baby steps ;)

but that's not the point. the main point is, the motivation/s of the characters in the two films are different.

Good. Ihoped so, but was not sure because I'm not following Bullock's or Clooney's carrier/coming soon projects, however I like both of them.

May be I need to post it as my last big embarressment? I almost don't dare to ask, but is True Blood pure sci-fi? OK, even such barbar as me knowsthat Star Trek belongs to the genre, but this is quite all what I know about it.
I admit it fairly, I know pretty much nothing about The Movie, theory, history,traditions, technics and methods, production and marketing, rules and habbits of the Dreamworld.
I rarely find time to go to the cinema; there is even no one in my town, so I should go to the bigger town or to Brussels, what means traffic- or/and parkingproblems.
If I buy DVD, I surely heared something very good about the movie or already seen (part of) it.
Usually, I watch movie, when it comes out on TV, so - years after.As I said it before, I almost never pay attention to the names of direcors. I remember the names of actors mostly not from the first time I see them (you can gess one obviuos exception)
So, please, don't expect some decent, deep critical assay from me. You can do it much better!:]I simply like movie - or not.
That all was to apologize me for my my amateuristical comparison. What I actually wished to say, was- if somebody uses only " spaceship" and "two characters" as the keywords, you'll get, probably,1/3 to 1/2 of hole sci-fi movies list of all times as the match. Of course, motivation- that's what matter.
And, may be, the way,how "the character" turns his head, rises his hand as a greet, smiles unexpectable,the long "gitar" fingers, the "husky" voice?

yelenav - no need to apologize.
I don't have much education in the field of film history, theory, etc. I've just read a lot about it. And watched a lot of films. Lucky to have a friend with an impressive collection of DVDs. I also rent a lot of DVDs, if available.

True Blood is... pure preposterous and hilarious fantasy :D but no, it's not 'spaceship' sci-fi, you're right about that :)

And yes,'spaceship' and 'two characters' are the only things the two films have in common. But that's where all similarities end.

The thing is, the films were very much alike. Sae bigger star got to make her's, Keanu did not. I'm saying, that does not sound like a friend to me. Both films are loser films in my opinion but I guess we will see if Sandra and George can pull it off. Remember Solaris? Big loser. More boring than cows grazing.

yes, I remember Solaris. I also remember the 'original' Solaris. AND the novel.
Each were a different take on the same story. The American version was the weakest indeed.

We will see if Sandra and George pull what off? The required explosions/minute that will not deem the movie 'boring'? A mother stranded in space, trying to return to her child on Earth, boring indeed.

Yes, films about human emotions are boring. Thank gods there's always some Avenger/masked hero extravaganza in 3D to keep us entertained.

Speaking of more boring...

I went and saw the latest installation of Twilight this morning.

I feel violated.

Seriously, what they filmed in two hours could have easily been dong in 25 minutes and then they could have gotten on to Part 2.

Obviously someone was out for a free lunch as they made an obscene amount of money on opening day. I should have saw it coming and just waited for someone else to rent it (I would at least bring something for us to drink). But nooooooo.

You are absurdly ridiculous and judgmental, Luca. I prefer indy films and I could live the rest of my life and never need to see another explosion or fight scene. I'm not into it. Solaris was boring. And risking a bloody murder...I'll even say 2001, was boring. Anyway, I was not impressed by the Passengers idea and I'm not impressed by the idea of Sandra's film. Also, I was not impressed with Ron Howard's Apollo film. Maybe, I just think Space is boing! Apparently Keanu doesn't feel that way.

oh, Andromeda... what were you thinking ? ;):D

I shouldn't be talking, I ever read the gdarned books :D
seriously considering watching the film in the theater but afraid they're gonna kick me out for laughing and commenting too loud :D

but yes, someone is exploiting the teens' need for new, safe stories where everything is sparkling and love does conquer all...

don't get me started. I was outraged when reading what that woman (S.Meyer) did to the vampire myth.
but times, they are a-changing...
*sigh*

rental it is. sometimes next year. got a pile of comics to read in the meantime. At least those are better written.

why, thank you.

yes, 2001 was 'boring'-in the sense that several scenes could have been cut and the film would only have gained from it. But then, I don't have much patience for Kubrick. I preferred the novel.
Wasn't impressed by Apollo 13 either; it was a good movie, but it could have worked only in space conditions, and personally I'm not a fan of the whole we've been to the Moon story.

but why was Solaris boring to you? because most of the film consists of the main character's thoughts? because nothing is 'happening'? except he's slowly starting to acknowledge the alien presence in his mind? its pull and fascination?
I might be ridiculous and judgmental, but you hardly bother to explain your reasoning besides calling a film you didn't see yet a loser.
what's your idea of a non-boring movie? pray do tell.

What I love about the Passengers script is that it implies only two characters - the third appears only for ten minutes or so. That it's a story about right, wrong, morals, choices and consequences. About shades of gray. It's set in space because the cryogenic sleep required for long distance space travel is the essential condition for the story premise. But the main point is the way the character deals with the "would you definitely and irrevocably alter a person's life/lifespan, destroy her future for personal, egotistic reasons" question. It could work anywhere, space, underwater, or a bunker under the Rockies waiting for the 2012 end of the world to pass.

Yeah, I know.

I read the books, too,(I'm trying to read the franchises the kids are/will be into,) and in hind-sight I remember the second last book was a tosser, too.

The upside is that I haven't been to the movies in such a long time so it was nice being reminded how nice a 10:30AM matinee is. Half price, too!:0) Oh, and I figured half the people there with me were at "dentist appointments' or the like.

LOL....

I tried several times to watch Solaris...I'm even a big Soderberg fan...I have never been able to sit through it and I love Cloony.

If I started naming films I like or love, it would take a book. I know, a lot of people said they loved the Passengers script...all I could think was loser and I felt like Keanu did not need another loser at this point.

It's about 13.30 by me. The most of you in N.-America are still sleeping or just waking. At another side of the world, in Beijing is about 20.30 now, and KR should almost go to sleep.A few europeans hier are probably hard working now.I feel me a little bit as a last person at the Earth.Or at the space-ship. And it's too light to wolf-whistle, looking up jealously to the Syrius.:]Don't worry, I'm not depressive, I just getting ready to accept plot of "Passengers".I begin to understand, how after a year among only robots you became desperately selfish enough to wake up another human being.Just hope they'll be able to bring the feeling over.

WHY did you think 'loser'?
you know, ardith, there is such thing as elaborating an idea...

Don't be too shy! You know a lot and you have certainly thought a lot about all information, you got and made your own idea's about it.OK,it's, may be, not the education gotten from university, it's selfeducation, what in my eyes much more precious.I have a big respect for you therefore. The same as for Keanu, as for all people , who works on themself.I'm not [enough].It's not like I have not enough brains, but...Of course, I can can say usually excuses-work, family, no time...nuts! Simply too lasy.
Keep it so, Luca!

yelenav - thanks :)

and please don't say you're lazy. It's just that we have so little time for ourselves that we use it for the activity we find most enjoyable at that moment.
And then we meet here and share impressions about those experiences - and we all benefit from it. That's why I love the internet. It connects people.

Central Station, The Station Agent, Dangerous Liaisons, To Die For, Out of Time, Hot Fuzz, Social Network, Midnight in The Garden, Bullets Over Broadway, Sunset Blvd. The Bishop's Wife, Boyz In The Hood...so many I can't remember them all.

With Passengers, all I could think was bad box office. I could not get past that. I wanted him to do the Lana Turner thing. I wanted him to do Chef, I wanted him to do The one about the lawyer/detective(?) in Thailand. That's what I wanted. I don't like sci-fi. I don't like kung-fu. I guess I actually liked the Ronin that was shot in the last century (30s? 50s?) I hope this one will be beautiful.

Honestly speaking, I'm also not so crazy about sci-fi and kung-fu. I'm well crazy about detective-genre. Not triller, like the Street Kings, but some good brain work ( my own little snobbery). Especially TV-series like "Lewis" or "Midsommer murders". At my opinion, KR should be great in such movie. "Constantine" came most close to it , not really qua genre ,but more his mood( and that's my favorit).
And yes, 47 ronin is a great risk - it would always be compared not only with original story, but with previous film too.My days start and finish with the prayer- let them do it good!(Don't really believe me. My days begin with the beep of my alarm clock, which don't brings me in the mood to pray. At the end I mostly fall in sleep even befor I can pray. But the rest is truth)
