THX-1138

3 years, 5 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 might 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. 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 fut... read more

Film Journal 2015 (332 movies items)

"This movie is rather messy. The multiple control rooms viewing everything that happens is boring to follow because they're intercut so frequently. The middle has a pretty decent imprisonment scene with none of this, but then it's back to running around a dystopian landscape while big brother watches on. There's nothing new about anything THX 1138 shows and I can't exactly commend the art direction of "white everything" for being particularly original. At least the music is good and so are the ac"

A good movie

“You might 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 sa” read more

THX-1138

“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."
