Thanks, I did not know about that movie (Hawking), I am going to see it :smile:. And I am a big fan of Cumberbatch. (sidenote: another great physics movie is Particle Fever, IMO)
Thanks that is one for me to watch, good physics movies are thin on the ground. Some good BBC documentaries though, horizon has done some great stuff on the LHC and there was the Hawking Paradox I cited in another post.
Cumberbatch also did the imitation game- brilliant
The one on Feynman is smooshy as hell (infinity) and the Manhattan Project film disappointing too (Fat man little boy)
Hawking has two great films made about him while he was alive! - not bad, a measure of his popular status
 
I enjoyed his book, A Brief History of Time. I also enjoyed the movie The Theory of Everything. Considering his disease, I will remember him as someone who showed that when there is a will, there is a way. But none of us lives forever. May he rest in peace.
My wife and I watched ToE last night and I'm wrecked emotionally.

Stephen Hawking was like the Helen Keller for physically handicapped people.

Darwin, Newton, and Hawking
walked into a church graveyard...

hmmm.....

I've got nothin'.
A chill wind blew in with the entropy deprived group,
as the surrounding area increased in temperature,
and the ghosts of confusion fled.

RIP Dr. Hawking! I have seen him as a source of inspiration for years.

I think he is still scientifically underrated.

I hope you have recovered. :smile: I started to watch the movie "Hawking" today, but I decided to watch it later, because it was actually starting to make me sad.

I agree. Great movie, great acting, just splendid! (a trailer is here for those lucky people who have not seen it yet)

Will watch be Hawking again I think, however its "Particle fever" for me this afternoon. Jon Butterworth did a talk on the LHC at Manchester Uni after the discovery of the Higgs, when he started talking I thought "Hang on, this chap sounds like a Manc." It turns out he went to a school round the corner from me. Very unassuming guy, the talk was great and tried my best to get my lad to apply to Manchester after it (Huge Hawking fan/admirer)

Really enjoyed particle Fever- cheers. Hawking made a voice appearence at the opening.

Me too. Just recently a very influential bollywood actress also passed away, and my family was depressed. I feel just as depressed right now.

To the head honchos (@Greg Bernhardt ): Can we do something to memorialize his death? Like something on the PF logo, just for a week or so.
Bollywood actress - Hey did you mean Actress SriDevi.

As far as I understand, yes.

But let's keep that discussion aside.o0)
