Yesterday, we watched Serenity (2005).

Also, it's just a hunch, but I found the Expanse sci-fi novel series' Cptn. Holden and his gang to be eerily similar to the gang of Serenity, so I wouldn't rule out the former was inspired by the latter (at least to some degree).

I think the Expanse makers have been borrowing heavily from everywhere; I'm currently reading a book that has elements in it that remind me heavily of The Expanse. Come to think of it, it's well possible that Rajaniemi got inspiration from elsewhere... so maybe the Expanse makers stole it from Rajaniemi, who in turn stole it from some previous sci-fi writer... it's all good though.
Anyhow, the type of Serenity / Expanse series, I want more of!

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

Have any of you seen the film called Melancholia
its a great film - a sort of science fiction psychological drama
hard to describe but its about how an artist who is about to get
married sees her future, and her artistic individuality, as a world
like the earth that is about to be obliterated by another world colliding into it
it's about how a marriage is two worlds colliding, It's about the depression
of losing your identity to others

heres the trailer

The telephone is an antiquity - you never know who is calling, there is no image, it is an outmoded product which constantly disrupts work (Ralf Hutter (Kraftwerk)) ps: my wife knows how much I dislike being disrupted at Work - Ralf Hutter hit the nail on the head there

The Abyss (1989). Phantastic James Cameron Sci-Fi movie; incredible film set and thrilling scenes.

Super 8 (2011). Yet another "good" Sci-Fi movie, albeit the premise is kind of shallow. I really like how the kids are portraid in this one. Nowadays it would be just a couple of angsty teenies with smartphones (probably).

Snowpiercer (2013). This is a really cool movie. I think the anime series Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress is based on a ripoff of this setting. Perhaps there are more similar films I don't know with this concept ("train running through dead earth").

For the set and filmographic craftsmanship alone. I doubt this could be done 'better' just by using more modern technology.

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

I could not agree more.

I was awe struck first time I watched it.

And one of the "rare" movies where some 'unknown' isn't out to kill us!

Nor us it ... in the end.

With a beautiful storyline as well!
