I love sci-fi books, but most of the time I'm not too fond of sci-fi movies. Gattaca was a good movie, as was the Star Trek movie "First contact".

Well done starting this thread, anton. Let's talk about books as well.

William Gibson rules.

Meanwhile, if anyone ever sees an actual script for T3 on the net let me know.

Have any of you guys ever seen a 70's cult sci fi film called "Dark Star"? It was re-released on video and DVD a couple of years ago.

It was writen by John Carpenter and is a kind of spoof on the 2001 - A Space Odyssey theme.

It's a classic!!

Man, proud man, drest in a little brief authority, most ignorant of what he’s most assured,
his glassy essence, like an angry ape, plays such fantastic tricks before high heaven,
as makes the angels weep.

What happened to the 'nick name'-thread where we discussed Sci-fi movies?!
Has it been removed?



I'd like to know if someone replied to me.

I like Gattaca, 2001 Space Odyssey and Blade Runner amongst others. I enjoyed Contact but it had too many loose ends. Mission to Mars was enjoyable too with interesting theories.

I like some of the Star Trek stuff and of course Star Wars.

I still haven't seen the Matrix

My favourite Sci-fi book is the Brave New World.

Personally I hated the Matrix. Stupid story, nothing but special effects. I'm not to keen on Star Wars either...

Crow, that's what I think about the Matrix, I mean I already know the whole story anyway. But I figure I have to see it once at least anyhow. Star Wars I love, especially the original three

There's a new movie called Solaris that's coming out this year. I didn't know what it was about before but apparently it's about astronauts who gets hallucinations from the planet they're circling. LOL

Never mind the 'lost'- thread, I found it.

I'm not fond of "Star Wars" either. Sorry to say but George Luca§ is a complete sell out. The first trilogy can count on my consideration but TPM, sheesh, that was hardly what you call a movie. From beginning till the end, Luca§ demonstrated with much bravoure his complete lack of directorial skills. But why should he care? He cashed in so much that he can probably build his own Falcon Millennium and visit the galaxy far, far away himself.

Colin, I have seen "Dark Star". It was not bad.

I'm eager to see Solaris. Steven Soderberg and James Cameron join forces to bring us the remake of Tarkovski's classic.

I've never seen the Tarkovski-film but apparently it was not exactly your daily multiplex-popcorn-entertainment. Hopefully Hollywood can live up to Tarkovski's personal approach of 'difficult' themes.
