Has anyone seen Sunshine?

It's a terribly underrated 2007 Sci-Fi film, written by Alex Garland and directed by Danny Boyle. The film bombed at the box office, which is sad, but unfortunate because this is how Boyle typically rolls. Alwin H. Küchler is incredible as Boyle's DP.

"In the not-too-distant future, Earth's dying sun spells the end for humanity. In a last-ditch effort to save the planet, a crew of eight men and women ventures into space with a device that could revive the star. However, an accident, a grave mistake and a distress beacon from a long-lost spaceship throw the crew and its desperate mission into a tailspin."

I would recommend this film to anyone who likes breathtaking cinematography, heart-pulsating music, and also social commentary.

For those of you who liked Interstellar, this film is better in my opinion, it's not only shorter, it's more beautiful, the cast fits, the score is miles better, which is saying something.

If you're not comfortable watching the film (it is pretty grim and dark, ironic because of the films title and imagery), then watch this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uYpKHTsQUN8
and then perhaps listen to the OST, especially Kaneda's death (Adagio in D minor/major(you'll find out about that)

What Are Your Pet Peeves?

I'm a human (Or am I, LOL), and I get ticked off sometimes. Especially when someone does something, and I just can't take it. What are some of your pet peeves? For example, I hate it when like, people have like a jumbo kit kat or something, and instead of splitting with the people they have to share it with, they take a big bite from the top. Like, Kit Kats are meant to be split! I don't get it. It just ticks me off, because I can't eat it. What are y'all pet peeves?
