Understatement Of The Year
From SciFiWire, comes this little blurb about the upcoming SF movie, Sunshine. It starts off with a, hopefully, unintentionally funny description of the movie:
Director Danny Boyle told SCI FI Wire that his next film will be Sunshine, an SF drama about a perilous mission to the sun.
Who knew that a mission to the Sun would be perilous? You don’t say?
In fact, reading about the plot of the story leads me to believe this movie will be lame, lame, lame. A section of the Sun has failed so to fix it, the heroes have to use, of course, a really large bomb. Right.
The director also says:
To tell you any more than that would kind of spoil it.
No, the plot synopsis already spoiled movie. Better luck next time with the whole ‘good plot’ thing. Oh, and they’re still ‘working on the script’. How about making a good SF story about the sun? David Brin’s Sundiver comes to mind. But then again, he is a SF author. What does he know about good SF, movies or otherwise?
