Would Repo Man
count? I sort of doubt it, even with a dead alien in the trunk.
Probably my favorite, all around, is a little known "last man on earth" movie called The Quiet Earth
Some others that come to mind:
Absolutely one of the best movies of the last decade or so-- only peripherally science fiction though.
The Road Warrior
Great, great movie-- one of my all-time favorites.
The director's cut is the best-- the narration in the theatrical version is distracting, and the ending is pathetic.
Great dystopian social commentary. Probably (sadly?) more accurate than 1984
The Fifth Element
Just an all around entertaining movie.
Director's cut only-- the original just doesn't tell the whole story.
2001, A Space Odyssey
Dull and slow, but majestic.
A Boy and His Dog
I would've done it too.
Very satisfying movie.
and Alien 3
Yes, I like Alien 3
-- I think it was a fitting finale to the series. Alien
, however, should have never been made.
It was a great movie. The sequels... were not.
The Thirteenth Floor
Same concept as The Matrix
, but human drama instead of action fest.
Ghost in the Shell
Served as an inspiration for The Matrix
Another great anime.
Great cast, great plot.
Okay, so it's Keanu Reeves, stiff as always, but I still like it.
Sci fi noir.
Aliens living among us-- I would think this would be a favorite of many of the ATSers.
The future as seen from the 70s
The Blood of Heroes
Moody, violent dystopian version of the classic sports underdog story.
The original-- not the truly execrable remake.
Perfect women aren't real-- real women aren't perfect.
And they have a tank.
It's allegorical-- remember that. Really all it is is a group of archetypes trying to find their way, each in their own fashion, in a
world in which they just happened to find themselves.
That should be plenty...
