I did like the Matrix, but it's nowhere near my favorite. God, Keanu Reeves is the worst actor EVER. ETA: Larry Fishburne was awesome, though.

And I KNOW I will get strung up here for saying this, but the ONLY thing good about Blade Runner in my opinion was the soundtrack. Oh, and Harrison Ford wasn't hard on the eyes back then, either. /ducks

I liked it, but it didn't do it for me as a movie. I don't know why..

Blade Runner, you mean? Yea. I mean, it wasn't bad per se, nor anywhere near the worst I've seen... but it wouldn't be the first thing I'd recommend. And yes, I realize I'm in the minority on this one :freak:

well me too.. Although I do own the sound track :)

Although I will admit I liked it better with the voice over. I can't seem to find a DVD with it.. or maybe I hadn't looked hard enough. I think I bought in dvd a long time ago and it just wasn't on there. With dvds though you can't be sure which version you're getting.

Bladerunner always struck me as something like taxi driver. just very over styled to the point that it lost impact.

I STILL haven't seen Pacific Rim yet. I'm dying to, but the other half doesn't like those kinds of movies so I have to wait until I have enough time alone to invest in it.

Brazil was one of my favourite movies for a long time, although by about 15 years ago I'd seen it so many times I just can't watch it.

if I had to name two movies that still stand out for me they'd be Hardware and Santa Sangra... which is just splendidly nuts.

Heh. The music itself is nothing to write home about, but I like the sound of the synths. They definitely have that 70/80's old school "we're going to watch a movie in class today, students, and it's about the space program" type of sound to them.

I always enjoyed those films, incidentally. Those space films. I'm not sure if they were like NASA sanctioned documentaries or what, but the ones they showed to us in elementary school and middle school had awesome synths in it. In fact, if I had to say so, I'd say those films specifically got me into synths. They were always so spooky sounding, next to the coldness and quiet of space.

Ok, I'll shut up now.

Really? I've never met anyone else who felt the same way.

Damnit! I thought I was so original! :lol:

So Gravity is worth looking at then? I've heard mixed reviews, but I tend to trust fellow musician opinions more.

gravity was great, i'd recommend the full imax 3d for their ridiculous screens but also their sound systems

here's a video from the soundworks collection about the sound: https://vimeo.com/76123849

also if anyone was wondering:

NERDS!!

And +1! for Dark Star. I think I read the excellent novelization by Alan Dean Foster before I saw the movie. I remember thinking "well, this is like Douglass Adams on Quaaludes".

Might as well watch it onlile: the utoob quality is probably no worse than you'll find on other media since the original was shot on 16mm @ then transfered to 35mm for theatrical release.
