Triangle (2009)


This movie was unexpected to say the least.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. or is this too classic?
The guy who directed it also did a version of Solaris.

Does anyone remember "Quatermass & The Pit"?
I think the colour movie is from 1967, but there's a 6 part black & white TV series available from 1958 (I think) which is excellent.

I thought of another, under appreciated and under rated Sci-Fi film. It set the stage for the character of Mr. Data on STNG. What film was this you may ask?

I don't imagine you do, my dear.

They both had highly prophetic allegories that many missed. Probably even you. That makes them underrated.

No it does not.
You know quite well that 'underrated' as termed by the OP meant as in popularity.

You also know quite well it did not mean as in prophetic allegories..
You also listed films you like which is not the point of this thread.

Also your condescending tone stinks

I interpret what the OP meant and responded appropriately and defended my position when challenged by you. If you find that condescending, not my prob. I stand by my post.
Don't assume, remember..?

No you did not.
Listing films you like was not responding appropriately.

This bit here, as you well know again, is condescending.

Legendery Film Director Terrence Fisher. who directed many of The Hammer Horror Films, made a trilogy of three Si Fi films in the 1960's for Planet Films. They are well worth a watch.


The Films

The Earth Dies Screaming ( 1965 )

Island Of Terror ( 1966 )

Night Of The Big Heat ( 1967 )

The Fountain, huh?

I couldn't get into that movie, way too slow for me.

Great! I know how I'm spending some free time in the not too distant future.

I saw a film called "The Projected Man" when I was pretty young, that I really enjoyed. I've not seen it on TV since & finding it online has been troublesome. I haven't tried very hard, to be honest.

I disagree. If you wish to berate me further, please do so U2U. Using this thread to off topic post is taboo.

"Snowpiercer" was a great sci-fi that barely got any notice.

In fact I had never even heard of the movie or seen any previews and just happened upon the trailer by accident on Youtube a year ago... otherwise I never would have known the movie existed.

Definitely worth a watch for any who haven't seen it.

Probably one of the best sci-fi films ever.

I also recommend THX-1138 and Brazil

Read the title, and thought of Sunshine first. Outstanding movie, as is Pandorum. Highly underrated, in both cases.

not really underrated but thought they should be mentioned.
Gattaca
AI
both were great movies.

as i kid,10,11,12 one of the local TV station had a show called The Big Show. they played all kinds of sci-fi, horror b movies, i used to eat that sh@@ up.

thought of a couple of others.
C.H.U.D
It's Alive 1974 the one about the murdering baby, they two or three squeals that were just as bad. all had people that went on or had a long career in films

The Black Hole (1979). Interesting take on what would happen if humanity (on a spaceship), would get stuck on the gravity well of a black hole. Campy, but I enjoyed it.



Can't believe Hollywood hasn't done a remake of this movie yet. I usually roll my eyes at remakes or reboots, but I would like to see this one. Still one of my all time favorite movie spaceships is the USS Cygnus. If they did a remake, they would have to have the exact same ship design.

Battlefield Earth I can't stand....Own the movie and the book and it pains me to how much they changed it. Dune will be a favorite of mine for my entire life. I thank my 9th grade English teacher for introducing it to me. Have read it multiple times and will probably read it every decade. Love the leather-bound version I purchased from Barnes & Nobles.
