Default 'Sunshine' - High-Def Digest review

Peter's review of 'Sunshine' is up. He says Fox has done a very fine job in bringing this one to Blu-ray. The transfer is quite good, and the extras -- including the studio's first-ever Profile 1.1-enabled picture-in-picture commentary -- are informative and entertaining.

'Sunshine' is arguably the first modern sci-fi film since 'Blade Runner' to rightly earn the comparison to the ornate, stately science fiction classics of the '70s, such as '2001,' 'Silent Running' and 'Andromeda Strain.'

Wow this sounds like quite an accomplishment according Peter. I wanted this Blu-ray disk anyway but now I'm really hyped up.

Good to hear,

I was about to blind buy this at best buy on tuesday but I just cant spend 35 on a movie. I would rather wait an extra week and just get it on amazon.

I'm going to wait for a slightly cheaper price before buying Sunshine, but I've already seen the movie and look forward to watching it in high-def. The review sounds pretty good!

My friend said this movie was not good at all. I havent seen it yet. But questions I have:

Has anyone used the D-Box motion code? If so, is it work investing money into?

Peter only gave it 3.5 stars for the movie, he gave 2001 and Blade Runner 5 stars. The problem over recent years is that we've had a lot of bad sci-fi, AvP is a perfect example

As I said, I was going to get this br anyway but was just excited by the contents of his movie review. I never really put stock into the 5 star rating system for movies because it's a bit too broad IMO. But I absolutely do agree with you, that we have been getting bombarded with sub-par SCI-FI films.

Yep and after seeing this film, the bombardment continues.

'Close Encounters' is now regarded as a genuine epic as influential, awe-inspiring and revolutionary as 'Metropolis,' '2001: A Space Odyssey' and 'Blade Runner.'
Really Peter... does every single sci-fi movie that graces your silver screen need to be compared to 2001 and Blade Runner?

I guess without spoiling the movie, what was it about the movie that you didn't like?
