“We have additional coverage on the film’s visual effects on fxguide with Ian Failes’ article, “Inside Oblivion“.”
One of my most favorite movies of all time by one of most favorite directors. This clip gets me excited all over again. Colonial Marines. The ultimate badassess
It might just be one of those “perfect” movies. Hardly anything wrong technically or story-wise, tons of action, some comedy, a new world to explore, strong female character, guns, aliens, harrowing escape, androids (sorry, synthetic humans , lots of quote-able lines, highly re-watch-able, etc.

What a shame. It could have been much more, but I guess that’s the way it goes most of the time for books that are made into movies. I think Ender’s Game won’t survive the conversion. Please, for all that is holy, do NOT let that happen to Ready Player One.
