Oh, HELL No.

Here are a few things I am NOT going to do that involve this film:

1) Watch this clip again
2) Watch this clip in HQ full-screen (again)
3) Watch it when it comes out
4) Watch it when it comes out in IMAX
5) Watch it when it comes out on Blu-Ray

Really, it might be the greatest movie of all time, but that makes no difference to me.  The thought of being adrift in space with no hope of rescue and a sudden reentry imminent is enough to turn my bowels to water and my knees to pudding.  SEEING one of my worst fears on the screen like that?  Nope, nope and a thousand times nope.

I'd rather chew my leg out of a bear trap than do that.

1 Abso-flogging-lutely. After the first teaser I was thinking, "They expect me to watch an entire MOVIE about this? AS IF."

2 I worry that the trailer may have shown all the best parts already, but otherwise I'd totally see it.

4 Working on it.  I hope to do the PSU switch today.

5 You are SO right, 'Duck.  Did two tours in 'Nam and raised two teenagers (one of each sex) but the situation described in the trailer give me the galloping never-get-overs.  Worse than going into a hot LZ.
Wonder how many in the audience at an IMAX showing will lose it?  Might have to hose out the theater between showings...

6 What are those suits made of, impenetratium?  Stations and ships and other sturdy things being smashed, shattered, and blown into clouds of razor-sharp shrapnel all around them, and the suited astronauts just go bouncing around like perfectly frictionless spheric constructs on a 3D microgravity billiards table.

7 Ever watch Dark Star?  Those guys just need to grab a surfboard-shaped chunk of space station....

8 Just gotta convince yourself that you'd survive it. (Love those dreams where you get shot a few times and then think to yourself "hm, the bullets didn't penetrate, I ought to look into why I'm invulnerable later on"...) Then it goes from "nightmare fuel" to "extreeeeeeeeeeeeme parachuting".
