THX-1138

1 year, 11 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

A good movie

You wonder if George Lucas will ever direct another movie again. The point is that the guy managed first to create one of the most popular franchises ever but then spent the last couple of decades basically trashing the legacy of these beloved movies.

“You wonder if George Lucas will ever direct another movie again.

I mean, the situation became so bad, he simply handed over the rights to Disney, making sure that he wouldn’t be involved anymore in any future installments. Anyway, way before all this happened, Lucas made this directing debut, a much smaller SF feature starring Robert Duvall, and even though this movie doesn’t get much love, it is actually quite a decent science-fiction flick. I mean, as usual with George Lucas, the whole thing was actually not really original and he ripped off many elements from older movies and books from the same gen” read more

The future kind of sucks. (307 movies items)

"Reason for the future sucking: Everything is outlawed, and use of mind-altering drugs is encouraged. The drugs are used to make people, super productive and work super hard, for super long periods of time. Also, everything is video taped and monitored by unseen people, who work from a control room. Year it takes place: Not too distant future."

Anautix' Movie Diary 2014 (192 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. "
