Boyle, Danny

I think he is one of the best around today even if he gets his endings wrong. What's your favourite?

Sunshine was such a unique film. I really love all of Boyle's movies but there is something magical about this one.

Best soundtrack of the 90s!

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

This applies to most of his films, but it applies most to...

Sunshine was such a unique film. I really love all of Boyle's movies but there is something magical about this one.

Sunshine was a pretty excellent movie until the final act when they introduce...

[MAJOR SPOILER]

...a man exposed to too much sunlight. Rather than fry him into ash, it turns him into a murderer and the film becomes Jason in space (which I already saw 5 years ago.)

Slumdog, 28 Days, Sunshine, Trainspotting. I've decided I will give Sunshine another watch at some point.
