Reply Charles Ostman April 5, 2019 Perfect character study of the "charismatic" cult leader . . . and the self serving psych drama and intrigues so ubiquitously common with these. Reply Pak De April 6, 2019 Beautiful translation of the famous verse from Book of Revelations Reply Reason077 April 6, 2019 Not really Sci-Fi. More like an anthropological study.

It really can happen. When they found the Boson of Higgs they realized it is not in the most stable configuration. In other words the value of the Higgs field can change at any moment destroying everything. It would only take some random part of the Higgs field in your hand for example to tunnel to a lower level and all the Higgs field in the universe will follow it creating a bubble of destruction expanding at speed of light in any directions. Reply James April 10, 2019 A few lines of dialogue could have cut about 10 minutes off the top. Reply Ivan Nosov April 12, 2019 Это было неприятно. Reply CogitoErgoCogitoSum April 13, 2019 Stupid. A "rip" made it from the "edge of the galaxy" to Earth inside of 20 years, but cant get from the sky above Argentina to finishing everything off inside of a week+. Writers werent paying attention to their own story line. Reply Jennifer Baird April 14, 2019 Really beautifully done – especially at the end. Awesome visuals. What a way to go! Reply Thomas Moore April 15, 2019 Boring and without a point really. Reply N.K.Smith April 16, 2019 Wow Reply Dan Africk April 16, 2019 Dust stories either have no ending or a sad / messed up ending. And that's the ones that at least have a coherent plot line..This wasn't a great ending or a particularly compelling plot, but at least it had a coherent story with an ending, and for that, I'll give it thumbs up. Because 90% of the videos on DUST don't. Reply Phantom Hemi April 18, 2019 A VERY fitting name. That's if you know what a pendulum is. Reply Dee Zimmo April 19, 2019 Never trust the guy in a man-bun.

Reply Skullmonkeys44 April 28, 2019 if the "end" ever happen in my lifetime.i would probably be stress-free knowing i couldn't change the fate of my life.because there wouldn't be anymore pointless social event, failing to be what my parents wanted me to be and the hope that slowly fade each year in my boss's eyes when looking at my work. it's weird because, you sens it, event you aren't dying.through the eyes of others…peace.

Reply Daniel Andrews May 15, 2019 If you're going to show a video with subtitles, the least you can do is put the subtitles in a text font and color that can be easily read. The beginning of this video is very hard to read the subtitles because they are of a yellow color on an orange background and they blend in to the background making it very difficult to read. Reply Shannon Prince May 17, 2019 That dude gave me a Jim Jones feeling from the beginning……. Reply Reeble Snarfle May 18, 2019 True scenario, a very sad ending. I'm sure when OUR real end comes, there will also be sad moments, but the love of God and His Grace will prevail. I was afraid, being single, but no longer, for His Love is all encompassing for those who love Him. Good associations.All our futures are Dust…. Reply Fiah K. May 18, 2019 The comments and the following discussion of this film are more interesting than the film. Reply Mark Wetzel May 19, 2019 Reminded me a bit of the movie Melancholia, similar themes. Reply Mark Kesseler May 19, 2019 A short film must grab and keep my attention before the half way mark. I gave it a little more than half. It failed. Reply Chris Carnes May 22, 2019 Not bad, at least it starred Tom Sawyer. Reply HebaruSan May 23, 2019 When did they install a gravitational rip-o-meter on Hubble lol Reply pontram May 23, 2019 Since gravity moves nearly at the speed of light, a gravitational "rip" at the edge of the galaxy would need at least a few thousand years to reach earth…and why does it have to be beautiful ? – could be just dark and grey and frightening 😉 Reply xkguy May 24, 2019 Collective guilt seems to be an easier sell than crack cocaine. Been workin' since way before the days of Moses. Reply Photon Snow May 25, 2019 Reminds me of Melancholia. That’s a good thing. One gets closer to universal dynamics and then is free.

Reply Johanna's Adventures July 14, 2019 That was awesome Reply Vinod Rayal July 15, 2019 This should not be on Dust! Reply animist channel July 22, 2019 Every generation thinks the world will end in their 20's, and they make tragedies by their own hand to convince themselves. So resentful of living in their parents' world, and yet so ready to die to maintain it, and by blind ambition repeating the mistakes of their ancestors. Then the wheel turns, the pendulum swings back again, they live past 30, and find the world is theirs now after all, and their turn to abuse it. Once in a while, one is born inside who will learn to see past that. You call them by many names, and none of these are accurate. They know what to do, and they recognize each other, and yet they don't often remember the fullness of what sent them, or for what. Still, once in a while the sky shifts, the doors open wide, and for at least a moment they can see their way home. If you are very lucky, and very brave, maybe one will take you with them… out there. Reply Johnny July 22, 2019 There is no purity Reply Johnny July 23, 2019 Yep you will be looking up alright Reply Igor Schmidlapp August 13, 2019 The whole premise to the film is only hypothetical, and NOT proven, so it's bullsh!t… Next time, don't present hypothesis as fact in your ]Hubble" prologue… Other films have handled the subject much better… "Last Night" with Sandra Oh is much better…The "end" is just announced as coming, without trying to "factualize" it. Should've just dropped the prologue, and added exposition through a radio/TV broadcast or newspaper headline… And, what happens to all the cows that are supposed to be sacred? "So long, and thanks for all the hay"? 😛 Reply Steven August 14, 2019 I saw a continuation of two hedonistic lives. It is too bad that murder suicides always shoot the other person first.

My kind of place for sure… Reply Jason Hammond September 15, 2019 Very well done. Stunning visuals. Reply Joaquin Elio October 7, 2019 Go crazy until exhaustion, then Kill my family and friends for mercy, then sit and wait while I watch the skies burning. Then stand up: "oops Halley missed" Reply Echt Faut October 14, 2019 I really held my breath at the end……. Reply Nathanael Adiakpan October 19, 2019 When I watch an apocalyptic movie, I'm always more interested in the apocalypse itself. All the human encounters and storyline inbetween is just a distraction. I just wanna see what the movie director pictures the end of the world to be. And this one didn't disappoint. Definitely the way I'd want to go out. In a glorious blaze of colourful lights. 🤩 Reply Ronny Dawson is a Fraud October 26, 2019 Again no message, no meaning just a waste of production expenses! Reply Jyotendra Singh October 30, 2019 Please stop making movies about India if you just want to keep exploring ugly side of our country. We have our own industry which is doing well to keep us entertained. Reply applesoranges October 31, 2019 how would you know that it happened? If you "detect" it then it has reached you already.. failed at the start Reply Michael Cochran November 4, 2019 NEWS FLASH The "Gravitational Rip" is another hoax, just like global warming. When people got tired of the threat of global warming and were no longer afraid, Al Gore had to invent a new global threat to make money off from and so invented the Gravitational Rip. The only thing you need fear is the Government who will raise taxes for the "Gravitational Rip Awareness Fund" and the "Gravitational Rip Preparedness Agency" which congress will establish to supposedly combat the coming disaster which doesnt exist. New laws will also be passed to take away your rights under the guise of this new fabricated global threat. You will be bombarded with news stories from every corner of the media on the importance of co operating with all government officials and police. DO NOT EVER say to anyone this threat is not real or call it a hoax. Such people will be terminated publicly after torture under provisions of the Gravitational Rip Preparedness Act , Section IV; Subsection 9, underlining procedures for quelling public or private disorder. Reply Ztertis November 5, 2019 Can anyone explain what happened? Did the Universe turn into something else or did it rip? Or did it compress into something? Edit: Nvm! We probably experienced a Nebulosa! ( Nebulosa ) Giangt beyond giant dust cloud after a star dies. And this was probably the result of one of our most nearest stars exploading Reply armymatt83 November 5, 2019 In reality we have no idea what would actually happen in this situation. A rip in space? For all we know earth would just pop through into a parallel universe. It's just as likely everyone would just be left standing there looking at each other and going "we're still here?".

There would be a lot of people going to jail after the event. Just saying! Reply pathofclouds85 December 29, 2019 I mean if you are saying namaste at least do it correctly or don't call it namaste. Or maybe it was spoofing cults mindlessly copying what they think eastern rituals are all about. Reply Dairo Leon December 30, 2019 At the end of the world… people will continue to act like people. The world has been threatening to end humanity since before they started recording history. When it does actually happen, it will be a surprise regardless of predictions.
