I own both and I love 'em both.

Death Race is a more traditional all-out action flick, and is especially fun in that the cars/stunts/crashes/etc are almost 100% practically done. They tried to use as little CG as possible.

Pandorum is a very slow-burn kind of movie. It's all about the claustrophobia and growing tension, only giving way to more action towards the end of the film. A highly underrated film with another great performance by Ben Foster.

Both worthy of owning in my opinion.

Both I have seen both and bought Pandorum from BB $9.99 Great Film (very underrated)
Im planing on ordering DeathRace from Amazon $9.99
They are both great films as cinemaphile explained.
Both movies are worth buying at $9.99 each thats a steal for two really good films

I think the people who hated it so much went in expecting a very different kind of movie. I have seen plenty of people who considered it a great blind buy. Just know that it is not a big sci-fi action blockbuster or a gory horror flick, as some thought.

It's kind of equal parts Event Horizon and The Descent, if that makes any sense.

hmmm now im wondering if i should go for the blind buy on Pandorum. that price is very tempting but ive heard mixed reviews. i did like Death Race so if people liked Pandorum more, maybe ill pull the trigger.

Pandorum with a doubt. Parts of Death Race were entertaining, but it was a chore for me to get through the full movie in one sitting. And take that in consideration from someone who admits their favorite action movie star is Jean-Claude Van Damme.

I've seen Pandorum and I thought it was pretty good. I might pick it up for $10 myself. I haven't seen Death Race though. The premise of the movie just isn't appealing to me.

It's funny that right now the blu-ray is $9.99 and the DVD is $14.99 at BB.
