THX-1138

1 year, 7 months ago at Sep 1 5:17
Perhaps it’s simply because THX-1138 doesn’t reside in the cultural memory in quite the same way that Star Wars does, but I think that this movie mostly survived George Lucas’ meddling unscathed. I say “I think” and “mostly” because I’ve never seen the non-meddled with/original version. But if this is any indication, maybe Star Wars was one of those two-headed behemoths that altern... read more

Anautix' Movie Diary 2014 (105 movies items)

"12.01.2014 An early Sci-Fi movie of George Lucas. But sooo boooring! I liked few elements in this movie, e.g. the automatic confessional box (the automatic answers were funny) or the flute music that played when THX1138 and LUH where together. I especially didn't like the long scene in the white room (I fell asleep)."

My 20 Sci- Fi Movies (20 movies items)

"THX 1138 Well.... I slipped on a T5 transfer this morning. It's never happened before. Before Star Wars, George Lucas made a little gem of a sci-fi movie. This movie is visually stunning, but it is the story that draws you in. Most early sci-fi films feel fake, even though George was on a low budget it spent the money wisely. This is a great story, one I think is better then Star Wars. "

20 From 71: My Favorite Movies Of 1971 (20 movies items)

" Before George Lucas went the lucrative way of the force, he dabbed into the Kubrickesque themes of THX 1138. Quality science fiction that delves deeper into it's story than just laser-blasting guns, lightsabre swordfights & fuzzy-faced Ewoks. "

“Perhaps it’s simply because THX-1138 doesn’t reside in the cultural memory in quite the same way that Star Wars does, but I think that this movie mostly survived George Lucas’ meddling unscathed. I say “I think” and “mostly” because I’ve never seen the non-meddled with/original version. But if this is any indication, maybe Star Wars was one of those two-headed behemoths that alternately was both the biggest blessing and the biggest curse to deal with, ever. And much like he couldn’t help rewriting history with that franchise, Lucas has taken his CGI-obsession to this film. The revisions are much smaller, smoother, and less noticeable overall. Except for one sequence at the end of the film in much it’s clearly a stand-in for Robert Duvall being attacked by CGI monkey/rat” read more

Science Fiction of the 70's! (50 movies items)

"The human race has been relocated to a underground city located beneath the Earth's surface. In the underground city, society controls all life, all citizens are drugged to control their emotions and their behavior and sex is a crime. Story centers around a man and a woman who rebel against this. Another interesting dystopia sci-fi. Future isn't really happy and joyful here."
