    Two similar films that came out a decade apart. Which do you prefer?

    Oh, thats a tough one, I love both so much. I gave EV the edge though, because as much as I loved Sunshine I felt it kind of took a bizzare turn at the end that seemed out of place with the rest of the movie to me. Plus I love me some Sam Neil.

    Even though Event Horizon is definitely a blast, Sunshine is unquestionably the better film. One of my favorite films from 2007, and a great rebound for Boyle after the crummy 28 Days Later.

    I love both and own both, but EH is just plain freakier IMO. Plus Anderson gets dissed all the time, while his movies hav always at least entertained me, and that's what movies are supposed to do. Yeah I wanted more from AvP, but it was still fun.
    Oh yeah, EH had hell as the opponet, Sunshine had only the sun and man's craziness. Hell wins!

    Sunshine easily despite my Sam Neill fandom. It's an incredible film while E.H. is just a fun time-waster.

    I like Event Horizon, but Sunshine has a much better script, without (as many of) the plot holes/silly out-of-nowhere heroics that are in EH.

    So I voted for Sunshine (though I have seen and will probably watch Event Horizon more often).

    I like both films, but I do enjoy Sunshine more every time I see it...four times and counting.

    Sunshine is a great movie until the end but I went for it anyway because the build up managed to make me forgive the silly ending.

    EH I watched a few times years ago and never really got into it. Maybe I should try again.

    I tried to enjoy EVENT HORIZON as well and just couldn't see what all of the fuss was about. I was very pleasantly surprised by how good SUNSHINE was--not contest.
