Original Message Has anyone ever seen this movie? It's a bit on the artistic-side, especially in the first half our or so, but about an hour in it gets really good with a rogue planet coming out of nowhere.

A rich couple, living in a mansion are in complete denial about it hitting earth, and the guy (an amateur astronomer LULZ ASTRONUTS) insists that it will simply pass by Earth.

Whoever wrote this must be a GLPer because it includes the wife going online and reading "conspiracy theories" about the end of days, and stuff. It's a great film...but you do have to give it time to get rolling, and even then it still maintains a bit of art over action. The movie is pretty much a metaphor for depression, which I'm sure a lot of us are well-versed in, and it's not a Michael Bay EXPLOSION ACTION GUNFIRE ROGUE REPTILIAN ALIENS

7.2 out of 10 on IMDB

"Meanwhile, Melancholia, a blue planet, is hurtling towards the Earth. Claire, Justine's sister, is struggling to maintain composure with fear of the impending disaster."

Latest User Review:

"Unfortunately I think a large chunk of the people who've seen this film (and there aren't many who have, sadly) went to it expecting a slightly arty apocalypse movie. It's not a smarter Deep Impact. The (blue) planet Melancholia is just a metaphor for depression. Unrelenting and irresistible, Melancholia has the main character in its thrall."
