    Cosmos

    Cosmos

    Cosmos
    Cosmos is a 2019 UK film by the writer/director brothers Elliot and Zander Weaver. It is a film about three amateur astronomers who affirm bonds of friendship, not only amongst themselves but into the cosmos. Starring Tom England, Joshua Ford and Arjun Singh Panam, this ultra-low budget sci-fi film proves that it isn’t money that makes a good film, it is passion.
    A clean, crisp signal cuts through the static and noise of space. When you've spent years listening to the sounds of the cosmos, you get used to hearing weirdness, but Mike Webster knows this is no ordinary signal. It's not a pulsar or a black hole, it's not interference, it's something different, something logical, something with purpose.
    We discuss the way Cosmos was made without money, what the Weaver’s were trying to do (in hour humble opinion) and the way the classic three act structure can be looked at through a different lens.

    Donnie Darko

    Donnie Darko

    Donnie Darko
    Donnie Darko is a 2001 American science fiction psychological thriller film written and directed by Richard Kelly and produced by Flower Films. It stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Jena Malone, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Drew Barrymore, Mary McDonnell, Katharine Ross, Patrick Swayze, Noah Wyle, Stu Stone, Daveigh Chase, and James Duval.
    A classic movie this time! We talk in scattershot fashion, skipping through time and highlighting the many layers of theme in this incredible movie. Rather than talking more about time travel, we discuss psychology, in particular the inability to understand emotions you are feeling. What does Donnie Darko mean? Tell us!

    Cosmic Sin is a 2021 American science fiction action film directed by Edward Drake and starring Bruce Willis and Frank Grillo. It is the story of a mission sent to wipe out an alien species before that species wipes out humanity.
    We discuss how a movie can be a two act structure and how not all movies have character arcs. We also talk about the game theory behind the premise of striking an alien on first contact before doing any other form of diplomacy.
