Norway's "The Wave" shows Hollywood how to make a disaster film with real thrills Given its title, it will come as no surprise that a towering, terrifying wall of water is front and center in the Norwegian disaster movie "The Wave," but that's not the only reason to see it. Rather, as directed by Roar Uthaug, "The Wave" adds credible writing and effective acting to gangbusters special effects, resulting in a white-knuckle experience a bit higher on the plausibility scale than what we're used to from Hollywood versions of the genre. See more of Entertainment’s top stories on Facebook >> Though Norway has not previously been known as a world leader in disaster film production, it helps "The Wave's" credibility that, as old newsreel footage that starts the film informs us, its premise is one based on past reality. Given that there are numerous mountainsides in the country, when one of them lets go and sends a wave of rocks into the waters of a narrow fiord, the confining conditions of those high cliffs can create a monster wave 240 feet tall.

Pioneer 10 Pioneer 10 (originally designated Pioneer F) is an American space probe, weighing 258 kilograms, that completed the first mission to the planet Jupiter.[1] Thereafter, Pioneer 10 became the first spacecraft to achieve escape velocity from the Solar System. This space exploration project was conducted by the NASA Ames Research Center in California, and the space probe was manufactured by TRW. Pioneer 10 was assembled around a hexagonal bus with a 2.74 meter diameter parabolic dish high-gain antenna, and the spacecraft was spin stabilized around the axis of the antenna. Its electric power was supplied by four radioisotope thermoelectric generators that provided a combined 155 watts at launch. All 2,400 Shots in Gone Girl by David Fincher Click to enlarge Analyzing the average shot length (ASL) of films / TV / music videos can be very telling or completely irrelevant. Taken as its own metric…it is just a number. The supposition that action / thriller / sci-fi films genres have a shorter ASL is statistically accurate but that does not mean a longer ASL means less tension, action, drama or intensity.
