For example, reboot star trek 2009 is a great movie, but it lacks the philosophy of the originals. More lasers, but fewer ideas. In the series » star Wars » everything is exactly the same: great films, but the light is in the concepts.
There are a lot of classic 80s movies that didn’t last many years. Predator , TRON and Weird Science may be classics, but few will claim that they are actually good. 1982 John Carpenter hit film «Things» not included in these films. With a few exceptions, the film hits just as hard as when it was first released in the 1980s, with just a few traces of callosity.
The desert arctic setting is still claustrophobic. The monster effects are still impressive. The blood test scene is still heartbreaking. Isolation and paranoia still grab you and pull you in. The film is a triumph of action and suspense, and a must-see for any horror fan.
It’s also smart — smarter than any of its 80s horror peers, except maybe Alien . The film gets a lot of praise for its inventive premise. An alien that can restructure its tissue at will would be brilliant sci-fi news.
What’s more, the film shines with its attention to detail. Thing packed with secrets and clues. The full story only unfolds after many viewings. This is a movie that needs to be watched carefully because there is a lot to see. In the final scene, who is human and who is not? The answer is revealed only to those who pay enough attention.
District No. 9
District 9 is an intellectual roller coaster written and directed by Neil Blomkamp. It passes between high concepts and brilliant performances, and robots shoot pigs at people. One side, District 9 is a unique story of first contact, conveyed with images of apartheid South Africa. On the other hand, it’s an action movie about alien weapons that makes people explode. The result is a joyful mess of a film that is a joy to watch.
District 9 represents a fine line that Blomkamp has been unable to walk ever since, with frustrations such as Elysium and Chappie . It has something for everyone, and its psychotic marriage of the brain and the downright stupid is quite unique.
children of men
«Child of Man» is one of the best sci-fi movies ever made, and yet you’ve probably never heard of it. You may know director Alfonso Cuarón from his more ambitious and far worse film » Gravity» . If you liked it at all gravity you just need see human children . It is very good. Holy crap, this is good.
children of men lowers viewers in the midst of a slow apocalypse. After the plague from infertility, the world collapses. The London of the future is like a third world slum. This is the cataclysm of a thinking person. The world does not succumb to monsters or robots — it succumbs to despair.
This movie is ridiculously tense. Cuarón’s long shots contribute to some exciting action sequences. They also hammer into themselves the hopelessness and mental illness of the collapsing Earth. «Children of Children» would make a great story, and that makes an even better action movie. You won’t feel good after watching it, but you’ll be thinking about it for months.
On the the first sight, Minority Report is a simple Tom Cruise car about futuristic cops who use psychics to prevent crime. Not what you expect to make you think. But you are wrong about this.
The envisaged system of justice raises an enormous number of moral and practical questions. The film is almost forced to spend time exploring these issues. The result is a tight and complex movie wrapped in slick plywood with a hefty budget, lots of gadgets and endless footage of Tom Cruise running away from things.
