An Unaltered Version Of The Original Star Wars Trilogy May Be Released This Year

OH HOLY CRAP YES PLEASE!

To my knowledge they’ve never had a DVD release of the unaltered originals. I have the VHS set of the remastered but not CGI-added movies released in 1997-ish, a set which has been one major reason I have been trying to get a working VCR for the past year.

Bluray? DVD? BRING IT!! \o/

This is a movie based on the lives of real women in the NASA space program in 1961. And if there was any fairness, the Johnson Space Center would be named after one of them instead of a President.

The only reason I've heard about this movie is because I'm on the NASA press release email list, and the only reason I know it's coming out so soon is because I follow Chris Hadfield on Twitter. I am stunned that I have not heard or seen anything else anywhere about this movie (although I don't get to theatres very often and don't watch enough broadcast TV to see many commercials, so maybe it is being promoted well and I just live under a rock.)

If you are interested in women in STEM, equal rights for women and for people of color, NASA history, spaceflight, math, or learning about people history should have celebrated a lot sooner and a lot louder, this is a movie you will want to see.


(Note: I will also be posting this on my Tumblr page, so those of you following me in both places will see it twice)

I don't know if anyone's going to read this, but here, have a reaction post anyway.

Pretty much spoiler-free, but putting it under a cut anyway to protect extreme spoilerphobes. Also comparative references to Batman vs Superman )

I am sooooo late on this recommendation, but really, go see The Martian.

If you like space exploration, MacGyverism, solving problems with duct tape and science, struggles for survival against impossible odds, protagonists keeping themselves sane through snark, team dynamics, believable depictions of NASA of the near future, and just awesome things everywhere, go see The Martian. If it's already left your town, rent it or borrow it from your local library system when it becomes available.

Good movie. DAMN good movie.

Today was half price day at the theatre so...


A few hopefully non-spoilery thoughts on Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation

-There seemed to be more plot in this one? In a way that could be seen as either confusing or intricate. A bit like the usual Mission Impossible script took a brief trip through the "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy"/"Smiley's People" car wash. Still fun, but more to pay attention to and higher stakes, so also more intense.

-Jeremy Renner and Simon Pegg are rapidly becoming actors who I will watch in anything. THEY ARE AWESOME IN THIS, despite a bit of clunky direction in a few spots where the emotional transition for characters in a scene wasn't handled as deftly as it could have been and was a bit jarring, but that's just my film studies talking. They are great and there are some of their scenes I want to watch again and again (my watching notebook has many scrawlings of their character names with lots of extra vowels in them :-D).

-HEY J. IT HAS WAY MORE LUTHER. And after the opening credits the heights were less intense than prior MI films, and only in well-warned and avoidable ways.

-With the MI films after the first one, I'm not particularly worried about what happens to Ethan Hunt or what he's doing, but I care about the team. It seems to me that this film does too, and that makes me happy.

Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] watsons_woes July Writing Prompt #28: Bad, Bad, oh so Bad! Extensive film quotes, film linked at end, and only a few might recognize it.

Summary: The odd smell that built as he mounted the stairs should have prepared him for what lay ahead, but he stopped still as John turned to enter the kitchen.

Went to see it at the last show of the day, meaning there were maybe 20 people in the theatre, so that was cool. Here's a very short reaction post.

Random out of order, point form reactions. Spoilers referenced for the movie. )

caffienekitty: (ooo!)
Since nothing appears to be coming out of my brain except tripe, I thought I should put something into it instead. So I watched Hawking, the BBC biographical movie about Stephen Hawking, starring Benedict Cumberbatch.

A brief gushing reaction )

Now, as I mentioned, I have been awake for 33 hours straight (including the Daylight savings change-over) as I post this, so take the review above with that in mind. ;-)
