In a way Sunshine is even more criminal than Event Horizon since at least with EH we weren't sucked in by a very good first half before it became total shit.
Exactly. It starts out with the promise of a great hard-scifi movie and then suddenly deteriorates into a third-rate carbon copy of a completely different science fiction movie (and with a worse resolve than the movie they lifted their second half from).
At least Event Horizon didn't even try to camouflage that it's just some mystery horror at its core (although with some stunning visuals).
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
