Question abort Donna (spoilers) The chicken that could do math Poorly executed movie, let us be honest the movie has so many hints to the other movie monsters.... Great show, did not like the ending What a delightful movie Johnny Knoxville and his stunts The ending... how would you explain that? Questions about her... Got sucked in, and ended up benchwatching it View all posts >

I noticed Pierce Brosnan can't dance if his life depended on it.... so there is that.... I am sure it must have been a combo - how else could you pass on having her as a lead. All they could agree to was here one scene, I am guessing. Probably she said categorically no, and then they convinced her just one quick scene... But still, story wise I am curious to why she died. I also asked because, perhaps something was revealed in the first one that had missed my attention and would explain it... guess not. There is evidence to suggest that their mission was to test this time dilation for one of their years. So we cannot say the 700 years was a mistake, just much more than expected. But given his very doomy monologue, he knew already then that the experiment was just too successful. But as a good scientist, he continued with the test, just as planned, and went to sleep. So with this in mind, I think it makes more sense to say that the clock mechanism is measuring the effect of speed, as it happens. And not "pre-calculating it". We can add in science mumbo-jumbo, and say the clock mechanism measured the rate of tachyons while speeding, and based upon these measurements it could calculate how much difference this speed actually meant in experienced time.... What do you think? I assume Hassleins theory can estimate the time dilation based upon the relative speed. And provided the clock mechanism knows the speed they travel by, it can calculate this difference. But of course, we can add in science mumbo-jumbo, and say the clock mechanism measured the rate of tachyons and based upon these measurements it could calculate how much difference this speed actually meant in experienced time.... Yes yes yes Agreed just reading your comment, made me laugh out loud. I agree. Even the gore is too expecting. The clown character was what it had, but not developed enough to care for it. Saw it on a list among great horror flicks to watch, and it certainly is not. Amateurish, and sort of pointless story. Sure, it must have been fun to make and all that... but know you are going into a student kind of production and expect no more. Besides, it is hard to be afraid of a killer, that seems easy to beat. A third option, you won't face anything. You are turned off, like a broken lamp. Nothing there. Not even you. No worries. Ever been knocked out? Sometimes, you dream wonderful dreams while under, other times you are just switched off.... nothing. And it is actually not what you seem to think. It is like moments taken out of your history. You are not there, while under. Who knows? we will learn eventually. I am though confident, it isn't hell, heaven or a void. It is an off switch. You are gone. Not even nothing. Take some comfort in that :) Interesting. I get you. In a world of fantasy, I fear ghosts because I feel I can fight off most things and most monsters. At least a slim chance, whereas ghosts are unbeatable. And being completely helpless is my fear. Anyway, one can fear more than one thing? Perhaps the second worst thing to eternal nothingness, is eternal agonizing pain in the fires of hell.... it is not a one thing... no? Besides, true nothingness also means nothing to relate to. And if so, you wouldn't be able to tell it was an eternity or even nothing. If you are destined to drift in true nothingness, you wouldn't be there yourself - as it would no longer be true nothing. Only if you were part of this nothingness, would it make sense? And you can only be part if you are not you. You would have to be nothing too. Perhaps it is not so bad after all ??? I mean compared to eternal flames of hell:-) View all replies >
