      02:13 if you think this sleeping position is weird then how I use to sleep when I got drunk would blow your mind. I would place pillow on the ground, maybe two. Then I would put a blanket over my shoulders, kneel down in front of the pillow, plop my face into the pillows.

    2:34 you really have a valid point it’s like if someone was talking to Lebron james and said to him you play basketball.

    One thing I hated about this movie was the clear lack of thought by the writers. One, how was the Shimmer COMPLETELY unknown by the general population? It's taking up a major portion of Louisiana or whatever. There is absolutely no way that not one citizen walked by and thought, "what the fuck is that huge glowy bubble dome?" That shit should've been on EVERY media outlet on the planet. Two, why did they never send reconnaissance teams? They said that they've sent multiple teams with animals and vehicles before, but they didn't have the slightest clue what is in the inside of the Shimmer. They didn't tell even one team to go in, do some research for 20 minutes, then come immediately back? They sent EVERY team STRAIGHT into the Shimmer for full missions. That's some dumb shit.

    7:24 The person that said it was a trick of the light was a paramedic. And she literally says she was one for 10 years in that very scene. So that scientist joke dosen't really work for her. But still, because she is a paramedic why is she so doubtful about what she's seen? She literally said that she scrapes bodies off the side of the road. But that disturbs her so easily? I mean, I know a normal person would but like she should have experience with crazy stuff like that

    I thought the whole metaphor behind this movie was that it's about self-annhilation &relationships. She cheated on her husband, was forced to fight herself or a reflection of herself. They both went on a journey into the shimmer. They lost days, were confused, became parts of each other but lost part of themselves, only to come back to each other not quite the same. At least I felt it something like that

    If this was supposed to be in Sochi it is stupid. Sounds like most of it was compliments. The movie was pretty good to me and I agree with the compliments. I thought the movie had a good story I thought the movie was scary were needed to be and was phenomenal and beautiful where it needed to be. The bear scene was creepy and the alligator part was kind of cool. And I did like the part with the deers and the animals and seeing the trees the shapes of human which was kind of scary but beautiful all at the same time. The very end was trippy.

    My friend made a disturbing point after we watched this movie. If an alien race wanted to survive, if one or even two existed on earth they could slowly combine their genetics to the human race over generations, ensuring their survival and it's kinda like an invasion... so thanks to my friend I had trouble sleeping for a week.

    11:29 there are 9 torsos in this scene four in the background and five in the foreground. They did use all of their supplies from the looks of it. Kind of hard to count but it seems there is the near if not proper amount of limbs as well.

    I always hated that bs explanation for the bear's screaming being "their mind's melded before she died" too. Literally makes it 100 times scarier to think that the bear was consciously mimicking human screams to hunt down more humans as well as being 100 times more believable.

    Main point of the movie: just because you think something is fighting you, it doesn't mean, that it is actually fighting you. Only Natalie Portman's character figured out, that shimmer is not actively trying to kill them. At the end, she learned its behavior. It is the same knowledge, as shown by Hiccup by his first encounter with Toothless in HTTYD, and by Elsa during fight with fire lizard in Frozen 2.

    Much has been made about the all female combat team. On the one hand the director put them in the only way that would work, by not pointing it out. The combat teams were interchangeable except that one member had been in a relationship with the prior team, and they could have been men, women, or robots. On the other, a multi-racial all female team of soldiers who are also highly skilled scientists seems only to punch brownie points with the PC crowd. It was distracting, and the rest of the movie didn't help as It was trying to be profound but really failed. A place that morphs with your fears has been done better in movies like the 1972 Solaris or the 1979 Stalker. Maybe the Russians have an angle on it.

    Okay, i have to say this movie started fine, with the military stopping the ambulance and taking them to the "area X", well, she had a orange uniform when woke up so.. if we guess correctly, if she had refused the job or got released and talked about it, was one step away from "indefinite detetion", one ticket to Guantanamo Bay detention camp, being considered a terrorist or threat to national security. So, okay, for some miracle she managed to get the trust of the leader there, and got a job, so, what do they do ? they sent her right away into the 'weird dome thing' with more civilians with her, okay, sure, they need data, so far i get it. But lets start with their gear, no CBRNe (hazmat suit variant made for hostile enviroments) no ballistic helmet + vest, no night-vision devices, not even headtorches, flashlights, or underbarrel flashlights for their M16's, same for their rifles too, no scopes, underbarrel grenade launchers, supressors, only raw M16 and some ammo, sure, okay, they might not need such fancy stuff probably but, for such kind of operation, would be expected some high budget from the ARMY, NAVY or whoever is in charge of it. Okay but, lets say they don't have a lot of budget to do it, and only volunteers was allowed to get inside that thing, and not a single military employee was idiot enough to risk their lives doing it, or they didn't had credentials to get someone to do the job and only those civilians, and one single person with proper combat knowledge was allowed to be sent. At least i think their budget would cover gas masks, nitrile gloves, military uniforms, geiger counters, headtorches,flares, flare pistols, glowsticks,basic ballistic protection,sidearms, and actually using their M16's sling instead of dropping their rifle on the floor. Really, the movie was interesting but some scenes which happened woudn't have been such a problem if they actually had someone with military training there(plot holes), like, scouting the area first to see if its all clear so they could set a camp, or the house near the lake when one of them got dragged by the alligator, if they had checked the area instead of staying like had no threat near them, woudn't have happened, also, what is wrong with everyone dropping their rifles on the floor ? Rifles have slings for a reason, and lets say about the area they stayed the night at, had no one taking turns to make sure no one (or anything) breach the perimeter, also, if they had flares, at any sign of threat, they could've used a flare pistol to shoot a flare in the air to get some light source, (or use a M16 with a M203 grenade launcher + flare shell) to get some light source. Another thing i don't get it.. some of their equipment work, and some don't, but the cameras they found work, so.. having go pro's there woudn't be a problem, and then comes the question, why they didn't had a go pro or some sort of portable video cameras with them ? (or like with the army nowadays, with cams integrated in their helmets), at least with the recording, they would know what happened with the 4 days that they don't remember and have some sort of amnesia. Another problem, lack of chain of command.. they wasn't acting like professionals, sure, most of them was civilian, but not even Lena(the protagonist) was acting like they should, giving orders, making them to obey and explain the threats to go out there alone in a hostile enviroment, making sure to get everyone safe, teach them how to properly use a rifle (trigger discipline, how to properly aim, how to reload, how to use the trigger safety, to always treat the rifle like its loaded all the time and to not point at one each other,etc) Okay, enough of military gear and combat stuff, lets talk about the plants now, sure, have great plants there, and animals mutations, amazing, but they still have to remember the risks of: parasites,viruses,bacteria,fungi,prions,viroids,algae,radiation and other kinds of enviromental hazards, so, seeing them touch plants and animals without proper gear like gas mask, CBRNe or hazmat gear (they do not even have nitrile or latex gloves + a cheap made in china respirator) And of course, if you was a scientist taking samples with proper protection gear, you woudn't be idiot enough to do it with your bare hands, you would use a botany forceps to collect the sample, put in a plastic bag, and get the hell out of there as soon as you can to examine your samples. This movie kind pissed me off with the plot holes, and how cheap they could be to not even have flashlights or proper protection gear against the enviroment, lack of combat training (reasonable for almost everyone, except the protagonist) lack of chain of command,lack of sampling kits, lack of traning to hostile envrioments (like Lena putting her face right next to the mushrooms which killed one of the guys which died before) Thats it, sorry for my bad english (english isn't my main language) useful links about what i talked here below. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pathogen#Types_of_pathogens en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sling_(firearms) research.fit.edu/media/site-specific/researchfitedu/applied-biogeography/documents/protocols/Herbarium-Sample-Collection-Protocol.pdf en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Night-vision_device www.argonelectronics.com/blog/what-is-the-difference-between-hazmat-and-cbrne en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indefinite_detention en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guantanamo_Bay_detention_camp en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M203_grenade_launcher

    For scientists, these people aren't very cautious. If nothing ever comes out, the first thing I would do is walk in and walk right back out again to see if that works. If it does, set up a camera there and do some other tests right by the edge of this thing. Don't go on some extended journey into something that will almost certainly kill you. That's just stupid. And why risk an entire team of people before you do a basic test like this? If one person goes in and doesn't come out, you know not to send other people in.

    I am only going to say this because I was a lifeguard, but the pool at 7:58 probably has a deep end with no diving blocks because it is made specifically for practicing water rescues. You don’t dive in to rescue someone because you need to maintain visual contact as much as you can, so no diving board. And yes there is also a shallow end because when rescuing someone you brings them to the shallows.

    A good feminine film, with relatable deep characters, they arent 1-dimensional mary sues, they have flaws and thoughts of their own. the feminist movies that hollywood pushes at us and we say they arent good have unrelatable "perfect" characters which makes a bad movie. This and Fury Road are the best feminist films in recent memory and they're ignored by hollywood for a crappy ghostbusters remake

    4:58 "This all female crew is a matter of fact part of the story and never feels forced." Except... it was forced. Included with all of the other nonsense theories by the least sciency scientists to ever science (including Natalie Portman who is an actual scientist in real life!) was that the reason all the other teams failed was because there were men in them. She didn't even say that the teams were ALL men, just that men existed in the teams. Men were supposedly the problem and only women with their tough as nails vulvas could save the world. You sure that wasn't forced?
