Anybody reminds this ?

I wonder if the movie makers ever heard of the Anthaeus report

Still, it would make for a great science fiction short story when the bugs escape and turn everybody on the space station into zombies:  "Houston, BRAINS!  Over."

It's called 'atmospheric lighting'. Which is odd because The Andromeda Strain proved that you can do 'dramatic' with painfully bright laboratory-level lighting.

Of course!  Here I was thinking it was sloppy use of cliched images  ;D

It's up there with brilliantly lit helmet interiors and sound in space.

I wonder which was the first movie to introduce this?  Alien? Outland? 2010 certainly had dimly limit interiors.

I have long thought that you could do a parody of those TV tropes. For instance, have the cops in the super-modern police station marvel at how great and high-tech everything looked, then wander into the morgue and have a coroner cursing how dark it was in there. "How am I expected to do an autopsy in this low light?!" he'd yell, and curse that the lights could not be made brighter.

I'd watch that!

Didn't they do something like that in one of the Star Trek movies, with 'emergency lighting' on the Bridge going very dim and Kirk calling that a dumb idea?

Why does every space movie nowadays have to leave the audience saying "I'm sure glad I'm not an astronaut!"

Ugh.

'LIFE' on the space station: Stars, director talk about recreating ISS in sci-fi thriller
http://www.collectspace.com/news/news-032317a-life-movie-space-station.html

Daniel Espinosa believes NASA might forbid his new movie "LIFE" which takes place on board the International Space Station from being screened by the astronauts living aboard the real orbital outpost.

"I think it would give them a bit of nightmares!" the director said. "I would love that to happen, though."

Ugh.

Much like every future has to be a dystopia. Because people prefer darkness to light.  Because, as as a friend of mine aid who writes SF, it's easier to write (and presumably sell)
