THX-1138

7 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

"I have always been slightly afraid of watching George Lucas's debut movie, as I had heard such horrible things. I need not worry. This is a complex dystopian drama in which humans are drugged so they cannot think for themselves. When THX 1138 stops taking the pills, he starts thinking and becomes a fugitive on the run. The cinematography is stunning while the stark white gives it a unique feel. Robert Duvall as THX is superb. Ig Lucas stuck to this type of filmmaking: challenging, intelligent an"

The future kind of sucks. (367 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."

Moviewatcher122's 2016 Film Diary: August (25 movies items)

"August 9 "What's wrong?" "I need something stronger." "Take four red capsules. In 10 minutes, take two more. Help is on the way." ... Wow... this movie left me speechless. This is quite possibly the weirdest and most bizarre films that I've seen in quite some time. Did I like this movie? For the most part, yes I did. Most of the time I really liked it a lot, but there were also some instances where I wasn't quite sure what to make of it. I will say that it is a very unique film and it surp"

My Movie Highlights of the 1970s (+Watchlists) (77 movies items)

"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)."
