The Abyss

   25 January 2024, mid-morning

Mezan, Mahi, Flora and I watched The Abyss last night at the Revue. I don’t think I’ve seen the film since the 90s. A new 4K restoration of the movie had it back in cinemas for one day last year, which I missed. I was happy to see I had a second chance to see it on the big screen. The film follows an underwater oil mining crew working alongside some Navy Seals on an exploration and rescue mission for a downed US nuclear submarine. They encounter something unusual at these deep ocean depths. The film is an incredible as I remembered it, perhaps even more so. There are so many scenes in this movie where I was left wondering how the actors didn’t drown. People are seemingly soaking wet all the time. The shots underwater are apparently underwater. It’s unreal. If you haven’t seen this movie, you must. If you have, it’s well worth revisiting.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
