Formative Films – Danny Boyle’s Sunshine (2007)

What really makes this a formative film to me is the way Boyle, taking inspiration from Alien, 2001 and the original Solaris, tried and succeeded with his first effort in the Sci-Fi genre. Unfortunately, because he hadn’t prior success in the field people didn’t view it as kindly as it deserved despite it showing that a director who studies other films of the type can make an original film in his own right to add to the masterpieces.

Maggie – The Philadelphia of Zombie Films

When I first heard the buzz around Maggie directed by Henry Hobson and starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, I marked it down as a film I had to see. Unfortunately the hype around it had died down so much, that when I finally got the chance to watch it this weekend. I came at it fresh. The film stands up as a serious look at disease, rather than an action packed thriller.
