Reply Yeah, it feels kinda like this, It's SO BEAUTIFUL every single moment that awaits me, & for SO MANY YEARS I HAD NO IDEA Reply Nat & Jon Through the Wyrmhole Reply 1:13 that part where the chair hits the ceiling always scared the __ out of me when I was younger. Reply She Saw Katya! Reply Read the book, its even more than this… Reply I've read the book three times. One of my favorite movies, even though it doesn't follow the book exactly. Reply first time i saw it, the chair slamming into the roof scared me. Reply They should have sent DeGrasse from a parallel universe where he is a genius poet without any scientific knowledge. Laughs please. 🙂 Reply I feel the same way when I ride the Thunder Gun Express slide at the waterpark. Reply This is what girls say when they see my sweet abs. Reply the shit with the chair always scared the hell out of me, it still freaks me out a lot for something thats just a chair breaking loose Reply As long as it's not a slam poet we're all good. Reply She was pretty beautiful too. Reply I must of seen this movie a hundred times and this is the beginning of my favorite scene. But in all the time I've seen this I've never noticed that 2:15 Jodie Foster's younger and present character are inhabiting the same time/space. You can seen the young actress who played Ellie face and voice imposed over Jodie Foster's. That just adds to the greatness of this scene. Reply They should have sent Jason Silva Reply TED 2 Reply Then answer me this. Why did the camera record 18 hours of static……… ANSWER! Reply The overwhelming sense of wonder and discovery in this scene makes me teary eyed every time. And people question our space programs. Reply i like this movie so much new ideas and philosopy a revolution Reply You need to know who Carl Sagan was. Reply This is my favorite movie and my favorite scene. Reply They should have sent me with my polaroid. Reply This makes me cry every time. I remember the first time seeing TRebs planet on Capella. Still chokes me up, Reply Yes, a wonderful scene, from a great movie. Unfortunately, it all goes tits up in the next scene. where she meets her father. Reply Starcraft sent me here. Reply Thank you sooo much for posting this beautiful excerpt from Contact, and really appreciate enriching comment from Jordy R below as well! Reply This is my favorite Sci-Fi movie.When making this movie they had Carl Sagan's wife for advice on some of the space scenes.Still Hollywood got some scenes wrong.It was a great movie in the end.Thanks for the upload! Reply From 2:00 you can see her face warping into a few different facial expressions that come with emotions which they did with CGI. I love that part. "Director Robert Zemeckis had asked her to repeat the pod scene six times, each time with a different expression (intense joy, fear, sadness and so on) and then the SFX crew quickly morphed her face from one take to the next. For a moment they also used the face of Dr. Arroway as a child." – IMDB Trivia Reply Whenever the occasion calls for it I always do an impression (usually sarcastically) of Jodie Foster saying the last few lines. Inevitably, only I end up getting the reference… but that's good enough for me. Reply This scene of the movie was like the Gravity of 1997. Reply Amazing, amazing special effects by Sony Imageworks for the time. Very underrated movie. Reply FIRST CHAIR! EYE 5 Reply i remember hte scene where she told them not to edit the schematics and she was right. the seat was useless and extremely troublesome. Reply Uh… I've actually taken pictures through my smaller scope, the colors are mostly correct. The only exception is when they intentionally create false color images to show features outside visible wavelengths. Reply Yes. The younger version of herself. You can also hear her younger self mixed in with Fosters audio. Reply fucking tears ! i can't help releasing them !! Reply Wouldn't be surprised if it was. Zemeckis was experimenting a lot with CG even this far back. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
