While I appreciate all the technical details explain here, I have to say that I liked this short movie even more. It was great in every aspect. Brilliant dialogues!
I don't think that I would have enjoyed it any less, if it had been shot on any other camera with whatever sensor size.
This doesn't take away that the information in this article is very much appreciated.
It actually doesn't matter if it is a movie set or any other business.
In the past I was leader of an IT department and I had good standing with everyone working there. We laughed a lot, but when there were one or more people bringing an important project at risk, I did the same what he did. I don't feel the need to be a fan of Tom Cruise to agree with him on this.
A non existing creature eats eggs of a non existing species. That's all there is to it.
I hope the people complaining never watch a movie with dark British humor, since they probably have to grab their heart medication, because there are bad things done to human beings just for fun. And even then, it's just a movie.
Those people are not too sensitive, they are addicted to complaining about everything.
They need a shrink or we have to reconsider movie ratings, so that adults who can't differentiate fiction from reality shouldn't watch certain movies or shows.
In the 80's I read a lot of King's books. If the Shining would have been the first I read from him, it would have been also the last, because I found it quite boring.
However, I totally agree with King when it comes to this movie. And before people start spitting their venom at me, please remember that it is just my personal opinion and I totally accept yours.
With some exceptions (for example Full Metal Jacket) I find most Kubrik movies very sterile and cold. Somehow the work of an architecture photographer. Just unappealing for me.
The feeling I get from Kubrik movies is best described as what bleach would do to my throat when I drink it, are Kubrik movies doing to my eyes.
