Stranded 2000 Movie

GoofsVery early in the movie during its plot setup, Kelly gives Chuck a pocket watch, telling him her grandfather used it on the Southern Pacific Railroad (i.e. He was a railroad crewman). Chuck is is subsequently winds and sets the watch to local 'Kelly Time' just before departing on the plane. The watch used is a stem set in a hunter style case (i.e. Has a sprung, hinged cover that closes over the watch face). This is not a real railroad watch, the specific design of which was controlled by federal regulations, and would have never been allowed to be used on the job by a railroad crewman. Among a long list of standards, they were required to have an open face (hunter case hinged clamshell covers were prohibited) and be 'lever set.'

That requires the watch back to be opened, exposing the movement, and a lever moved in the movement to allow setting the time by turning the crown. (The crown cannot be pulled out from its winding position for time setting as was common with non-railroad watches and is the standard setting method today.) This prevented a railroad crewman from accidentally changing the time while winding the watch. It also allowed for station masters to control setting crew watches to calibrated time standards as they would seal the watch back after setting it. Had they used a proper railroad pocket watch, Chuck wouldn't have been able to wind the watch and so easily set its time during this scene.

From time to time a group of people with a lot of guts come forward and challenge something, that every average thinking producer would get nightmares to even think about making it. Fear of failing must come to mind, if the setting says:. only one actor for 80 min (and one dead body). 40 min of it basically limited to: 'Hello. Albert Miller.


no BGM. no adrenaline injections with savages, sharks, snakes etc. just plain 'Life is hard enough as it is.' I loved it for:. the guts of making it.

the heartbreaking and real-to-life love story. Tom Hanks' performance. his companion Wilsongreat movie / must see.

Stranded is a 2001 English-language Spanish science fiction film about a fictional first manned mission to Mars. It stars Vincent Gallo and Maria de Medeiros, and was directed by Spanish filmmaker and actress María Lidón (credited in the English version of the movie as 'Luna'), with screenplay by Spanish science fiction author Juan Miguel Aguilera. Lidón won the 'Grand Prize of European Fantasy Film in Silver', and Gallo and de Medeiros were named best actors at the 2002 Fantafestival in Rome.[2]


The film is set in 2020 and begins as the Ares spacecraft enters orbit around Mars. Andre Vishniac commands an international crew of seven astronauts. They try to land, but the small landing craft crashes as a result of an altimeter error. Vishniac is immediately killed, and five other crew members are stranded inside the toppled landing craft, unable to return to the waiting Ares mothercraft. With no spare landing craft, Lowell, the pilot of the Ares, returns to Earth with it.

It will take 26 months for Lowell to send a rescue ship from Earth, but the stranded landing crew have supplies for less than a year and need to find ways to extend the life support system. The main problem is the thermoelectric power generator, since air and water recycling require electrical power. Since the lander is damaged beyond repair, it no longer requires fuel, and Sagan (the mission geologist) proposes to use what is left to power an improvised silicate reactor to produce methane and water vapor from the martian soil. They try to build it, but the landing engines and propellant tanks prove to be too damaged to salvage.

The landing crew tries to find ways to save electrical power, but even draconian measures will only extend the life of the generator to fourteen months. The required lifetime can be attained only if the crew is reduced to two astronauts. Dungeon crawl stone soup best god. Sanchez, the new commander, decides that she, Sagan and Rodrigo should abandon the craft, since their specialist skills are less important to the survival of the mission. They don their spacesuits and walk to the edge of the Valles Marineris valley, not far from the crash site. Recent radar scans from the orbiter reveal a maze-like structure hidden below a thick cloud of water vapor in the Valles Marineris. The structure appears artificial and is virtually identical to another one near the martian south pole. The three astronauts try to reach the bottom of the valley before they run out of oxygen.

Sagan dies of asphyxiation, but Sanchez and Rodrigo stumble upon an artificial tunnel near the bottom of the valley, containing the mummified bodies of humanoid alien beings. They find that the air pressure and oxygen content in some of the tunnels is just like that on Earth. Rodrigo dies when accidentally entering a tunnel with no atmosphere, but Sanchez manages to contact the two astronauts still at the lander, who have meanwhile discovered that they are gradually losing air pressure and have realised that there must be an air leak somewhere. Sanchez urges them to join her, as there is enough oxygen and water in the valley for them to survive until the rescue ship arrives.

Filming locations[edit]

The scenes set on the surface of Mars were filmed on Lanzarote, and the interior scenes were filmed at Panavision Studios in Hollywood. To save costs, they used the Space Shuttle interior set previously used for Space Cowboys.
