I'm not sure that Sunshine is the right title for the new Danny Boyle film. That sounds too happy and Shirley Temple-ish. It might have been more accurate to call it Improbably Attractive People of Different Ethnicities Argue While Aboard a Spaceship that Is Hurtling Toward the Sun. Or maybe just Hot!!!!

Anyway, it's a pretty good movie. Cillian Murphy is so absurdly handsome that I have trouble focusing on anything plot- or character-related while he is onscreen in any film. They have tried to scruff him up for this one, though, giving him scraggly hair and a hint of stubble, and that helps take the edge off a bit. He even wears a ridiculous little ponytail in one scene.

Also, we got to see the trailer for the new Cate Blanchett movie about Queen Elizabeth. Looks gooood. This is the second movie in what the director hopes will be a trilogy, but as Greg pointed out, they couldn't call this one Elizabeth II.
