this cube in parque de la exposicion in lima reminded me of the movie sphere
. apart from the very obvious geometric differences, i'm pretty sure that there was a big, reflective, golden sphere in that film. although a quick google search didn't provide any evidence to back that up so i could be remembering wrong again. i do recall being disappointed with that movie though, not because it was really bad, but because it had potential to be good. i enjoyed the scenes when the sphere/alien starts communicating via the computer screens, typing out his name is jerry and he is happy, before sinisterly changing tack and declaring he will kill everyone. it should have been a tense, claustrophobic sci-fi thriller/horror - but somehow the pieces just didn't fit together. it's certainly no event horizon
which i'm not embarrassed to admit scared the bejesus out of me.
in reality i'm sorry to reveal that this cube wasn't hovering above the ground, here's the non-floaty original
