Do you know about the new Russian films about space? Have you watched them? Are you going to watch? If you've already watched - share the viewing experience.
I would advise you to their friends these movies?

I have hopes that this film will be better than "Gravity" (in which everything gravity-related was just wrong).

Very entertaining. However, contains some of the annoying stuff present in Hollywood movies. Such as noise in space.
And the part most annoying for me is the fact that my Russian is now very poor...

Yeah, I watched this movie and it is more close to reality than "Gravity". However, forget about the fact that the film is based on real events - in fact to the real situation with the station "Salyut-7" he has a pretty weak relationship.

I have seen a Russian super hero movie too. Could use a bit more humor, but otherwise not bad. It was interesting to see a superhero jumping out of an IL76

I saw it a few weeks ago at a friend's place, I had not been aware of it but had some knowledge of the Salyut 7 story.
I enjoyed it, my friend who looked surprised when in one scene a Cosmonaut lights up, in another they have a bit a Vodka, I could only reply 'not saying it happened on this mission but it wasn't unknown in that time'.

There is a deliberate bit of artistic 'imagining' at the end, concerning the Shuttle Challenger. I say deliberate since in the time line of the events of the film and real life, they happened a few months before that spacecraft was lost.
In 1971, on Apollo 15, Commander Dave Scott left a small plaque with the names of all Astronauts and Cosmonauts killed, for whatever reason, up to that date. Included were the crew of the very first Salyut mission lost a few months before Apollo 15.
So I think that sequence was a shout out to Dave Scott's (unapproved) gesture all those years before on the Moon.

Watched this on Amazon; it was certainly well made and the graphics were excellent. It didn't lag either, and even showed the brutal management style of the Communist regime at that time.

If you have Prime, don't mind subtitles and have a love for all things space then it's worth a watch.
