Gasp

> There are four versions of Blade Runner. The 4-disc set is available on Amazon.
The Director's Cut version is so lame without Deckert's vocalized insights.

Don't banish me from TTA but I'm not much of a science fiction fan.

I liked 2001: A Space Odyssey and I liked the recent movie, Arrival. Alien was pretty good. Scared the shit outta me when I saw it. Star Wars? Meh. It's cowboys in outer space. Star Trek? I get the two mixed up anymore. I don't get what's so appealing about Hollywood movies that blow stuff up whether it's in outer space or here on earth. I don't give a good goddamn about lasers. Maybe it's a guy thing.


This is actually my very favorite Sci-Fi piece of filmmaking. Thumbsup





Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

I want some of what you're smoking friend. Must be a story behind that one!

Yes, definitely Iron Giant. It not only hearkens back to the days of the classic sci-fi era with numerous homages and "Easter eggs", it has an amazing lesson about discovering what it really means to be human (which is the point of all sci-fi, I think), and all the moral lessons that go along with it... the whole scene just before the "Superman" bit where the little boy explains to the killing machine that "You don't HAVE to be a gun! YOU choose!"

As the killing machine (who could have simply used his amazing weaponry to vaporize the nuclear missile) flies toward the incoming rocket, intent on sacrificing his life on behalf of all the people below, he hears the voice of the little boy about choosing to be what he wants to be-- and the robot says, "Superman", then smiles and closes his eyes for the impact.

If that doesn't move you on a deep level, well, maybe you need to watch more films examining what it means to be human. Tongue

Awesome extraction.

All of the Star Wars movies have always struck me as being a bit on the cheesy side -- especially the original three. I don't like all of the Star Trek movies, but the ones I do like (The Wrath of Khan, and the one where they time-travel back to earth to save the whales) are better than any Star Wars movie.

However, none of those would be my favorite. My favorite is 2001: A Space Odyssey. I'm a guy, and I like a good explosion as well as anyone, but I don't judge the quality of a movie by that. Plot and dialogue and acting are all more important, and interesting ideas are especially important in a sci-fi film. And that's why 2001 wins.

I also really liked Galaxy Quest and Mars Attacks, although since those are spoofs, I'm not sure they count.

I love sci fi. One that nobody's mentioned, that I enjoy, is Starship Troopers. No, I haven't read the book, and don't give a shit. I just find the movie funny and entertaining. Damn bugs.

RE: Favourite Sci-Fi movie?
I don't think I could ever say which would be my "favorite" - as in the best - each one is different.

My current list (in no particular order) of favorites would consist of ...

Blade Runner
Time After Time - (1979)
Invasion of the Body Snatchers
The World, the Flesh and the Devil
Close Encounters of the Third Kind
Arrival
Silent Running
Capricorn One
Day the Earth Stood Still (1951)
City of Lost Children
A Clockwork Orange

2001 A Space Odyssey / 2010 Odyssey Two
Star Wars (A New Hope/Empire Strikes Back/Rogue One/& so far, the new one)
Star Trek - sort of - the ones with the old guys
Fifth Element

I'm certain I've forgotten some really great ones. Shy
