About Me

A 17 year old taking his first tentative steps into the world of blogging. In my first year, its been up and down, from the slow first months to a busy time around the one year anniversary.

Sunshine... a view of our future?

I have, of course, seen Trainspotting. I wouldn't be able to call myself a film fan unless I had seen it, and it ranks highly in my favourite films. I'm sure many of you have also seen 28 Days Later, which did for zombie films what Alien did for sci-fi. Another excellent movie I watched recently was The Beach, which had a great twist. And the one thing that connects all these films is that they were directed by the one and only Danny Boyle.

Well, I have been waiting anxiously for his next film, Sunshine, to be released, and the time is finally upon us. Sunshine is set 50 years in the future, when the sun is dying. An international group of astronauts are sent to reignite the sun with a bomb the size of Manhattan. Now, many people have drawn parallels between the concepts of both Sunshine and Armageddon, but the similarities end with the story... As the crew of Icarus II (ironic name, huh?) edge closer to the sun, they become aware of the remains of Icarus I, which was the first attempt to reignite the sun which was disappeared. I'm not going to ruin the story, but there is more to Icarus I than meets the eyes; needless to say, all hells breaks lose and people die.Please check out the sidebar to watch the trailer...

I haven't seen the film yet, but as soon as its on general release, i will. Early reviews have been good, but people say that Boyle drops the ball a bit with the ending. If you have seen the film, I would really like to hear what you think about it: Did you think the ending was good? Do you think Danny Boyle is a great director?
