let's make some future history...

Re: Science Fiction Classics

Watching some of The Day The Earth Stood Still kind of reminded me about the original The Thing (from Another World) as well as John Carpenter's remake of The Thing. Both are amazing.

worship the potentiometer.

Re: Science Fiction Classics

Angelo Badalamenti for sure....

I think this is the most impressive film i've seen in quite a while, if only there were movies made now that have gotten at least a half of the attention to set design and detail as that movie, i'd be watching shit 24-7

Re: Science Fiction Classics

I don't know if you'd call it underground, but Children of Men is an amazing film. I loved Michael Caine as the hippie Jasper.

Music is a beautiful opiate, if you don't take it too seriously.

Re: Science Fiction Classics

yep "chlidren of men" is very nice ;-)

check also "Solaris" (1972) by Andrei Tarkovsky. Music by Eduard Artemyev.
Not the recent american remake...

agreed. amasing film and probably (in my opinion) one of the best sci-fi's

Re: Science Fiction Classics

Thanks for the link metalman!

Some more essential stuff to watch:

TRON
The War Of The Worlds
The Andromeda Strain
Blade Runner
Dune

And when it comes to Sci-Fi Horror, David Cronenberg is my choice. The Fly, The Brood, The Dead Zone, Scanners... All good.

Re: Science Fiction Classics

Don't forget the master James Cameron:

Terminatorbest B movie ever with excellent sound track.

AliensProbably the best action film ever. The first one: Alienby Ridley Scott is also a masterpiece. DON'T see any of the others. they are mega crap

The Abysscould maybe have been one the best one ever if it didn't have disney-cute-ish ending which is a bit sad.

I really enjoyed the remake. The soundtrack (by Cliff Martinez) is beautiful also.

both of these films are uber-coolex.

I also like the Danny Boyle movie Sunshine, although it is neither a classic nor particularly underground.
