During an interview on the Bob Rivers Show (Seattle, May 2010), director Toni Myers remarked, "One of the things, in our training, we have this shopping list of scenes that we developed together with Ray J [nickname of shuttle pilot Gregory C. Johnson] for the eight minutes, and that's quite prescribed. But we always say: Now, if an alien comes up and looks into the camera, don't not shoot it because it isn't on the list!" See more »
i watched this movie "on demand" & was fine with idea of seeing it w/o the imax presentation, however the charge for renting it through your cable provider is still not cheap if you want it on high-def. THE BIGGEST waste of money as a far as a movie/documentary goes that i have seen in a looooong time. i know enough about the hubble telescope to know the images it takes & was hoping to see more background behind that & i was led to believe so through the film description (as well as some about the astronauts & their mission).. that was made clear. 3/4+ of the film was about the astronauts & their handiwork in fixing a telescope! with something as amazing as the hubble i figured they would have shown so much more imagery & so much more on the scientific scale versus nasa spacemen training, blasting off into space, & messing around with the camera & the fittings. makes me wonder why it was shown on imax at all or why they even really needed much of a narrator? some beautiful images & info initially & ending, but for the majority, i was bored & my money wasted. i fast-forwarded through a third of it. i could see that on any old program on the science channel or look it up myself. practically 1/2 of an astronaut's job is fixing things in space when they go down, nothing new. disappointed with the whole thing. unless that sounds okay or appealing to you & you'd like to see a bunch of astronauts doing their thing, i'd skip it. good luck!
