Default SPOILER: Silence

I remember awhile back a few people talking about how in space there is no sound, and that it would be cool if the new movie did showed that.

I thought it was pretty cool that they did just that! When the crewwoman got sucked out of the Kelvin, and you could still see phaser fire going on....that was SO cool!

And another time was the parachute jump....very quiet until they broke the atmosphere....anybody else have thoughts on this?

Aye, it was cool....if inconsistent, because although there were those two incidents of silence in space, the rest of the film had sound in space.

Not that it bothers me in the slightest, because it doodn't.

I think the "silence" was used for dramatic purposes.

When that crewman got sucked out, the camera followed her up to the bulkhead, and then stopped once she was outside and she just continued to move away while the battle was going on.

It was used very well. They didn't feel bound by it, but when it enhanced the scene, bam, silence. Great stuff.

Yes, indeed! It satisfied both the scientist and action/adventure movie nut in me!
