Being in the movie mode I just wanted to put a comment on the last film that amazed me, which is the alien meets amargeddon movie SUNSHINE. I will not spend long time thinking about the story line, but the visuals and the camera use was very good. I was entertained through-out the movie and the effects kind of amazed me. But especially I am stunned to find out the budget, which seems much lower than the normal space blockbusters.
Boyle will almost certainly be desperately unpopular with future action directors. He’s taken a budget of around $40 million and produced a film of near faultless visual gloss and shimmery sophistication, with production values that appear well outside his price range. It’s the equivalent of taking a few old toilet rolls, some fuzzy Sellotape and belly-button lint and producing the Mona Lisa
