You Don't Need Lasers to Make A Good Sci-Fi Flick

This film is an excellent example of what can happen when all of the effort of special effects is replaced with maximum effort into the script.
Definitely a thinking man's science fiction film whose intellect sacrifice none of the science nor none of the fiction.
The plot utilizes the fantasy element of the genre to delve intricately into themes of the pysche such as regret, love, pi... read more

In "Solaris" Russian director glances from the cosmos to the earth, to man. Tarkovsky does not make a trip "to infinity and beyond", but to the inner world of man. "I consider it my duty to encourage reflection on the specifically human and the eternal that lives within each of us," wrote Tarkovsky. It is no coincidence nor a matter of "resources", that special effects have been reduced to a minim... read more

I looked up the review for this in an old movie guide I used to use (Video Hound) and I was surprised that it gave it a fairly low rating. It focused on a negative comparison with 2001 and complained that there was too much talking in the film. This strikes me as a strong indication of cultural bias, as thought the Russians weren't allowed to have their own investigation of memory and the symbolic... read more

"I thought for a while and asked myself, I never put 2001: a space odyssey in this list so how can I put Solaris in it and then I realized that for me Solaris was more engaging. Of course it doesn't have those breath taking visuals that 2001: ASO has but it has something that 2001 doesn't have which is bit of a heart. 2001: ASO for me was very cold, it was never inviting in fact after a while you have no clue what is happening and what are you supposed to look forward to. Solaris for me worked be"

"A psychologist has to visit a space station orbiting a water planet Solaris to investigate why the crew are depressed The original version and its very slow and too long imho.This has better ideas and scenes than the 2002 remake but its just paced so damn slow. The ending is different and much more suitable but not a big enough pay-off to sit through nearly 3 hours This would make a great mini-series but as a film...its bordering on the good though for the life of me I cannot see why this film"
