This post hopefully should generate some interesting feedback! Come on guys lets have some great feedback!
An IPMS member since 1974. Also branch secretary Berkshire branch in 1975. Edited IPMS magazine late 70's 2 years, serving the National Committee. Judged at SMW recently some car classes. Main interests are cars and and sailing ships. Still trying to convice people that IPMS is not just aircraft!
Ed Wood Jnr's epic Plan 9 From Outer Space!! Not even the death of the main actor could stop this movie being made. Great story, great sfx..............no I'm kiddin' it was terrible, but I LOVE IT!!!!! Second choice Star Wars, then 2001
Mine would have to be Aliens, The Abyss or Avatar. Hmmm seems to be a bit of a James Cameron thing going on here..........Silent Running with Bruce Dern is awesome as well.......Im in bits every time I watch it! Best TV sci fi is Battlestar Galactica. Best books, The Lost Fleet series by Jack Campbell or anything by Greg Bear. Heavy going but so compelling.
Morning, i like this tread, following is off the top of my head, and are the films that made the most impression on me:
1) 2001 - by far the best Si-Fi Film ever made.Stands head and shoulders above the reat
2)clockwork orange - well it was set in the future 3) blade runner - brilliant 4) soylent green - made a big impression on 1st viewing 5 the omega man - " " " 6) 2010 - not Kubrick - but worth a look 7) the final programme - so '1970's. 8) the final countdown - F14's v Zero's. + the Nimitz
There must be more i will have to give this some more thought and get back.
Again playing catch up.........as only just noticed thread. DONT TELL HIM!!!!!. (Get it...Fred...??) Anywho best Sci Fi movie ever for me has to be the original The Day the Earth Stood Still. Was looking forward to remake.........Lasted 10 minutes in the cinema, walked out, threw up, vowed never to watch ever again!!!!.
Yo Simon, in total agreement about DREDD, however, have to say Star Trek Into Darkness is equal to being one of my faves at mo. Dying to see how Mr Abrams is gonna handle Star Wars. Has to be better than Mr Lucas's latest (and thankfully) last efforts.
I am so much into shows by Andy Yeatman that I am not able to think about any other movie or show. These shows have been great and I would recommend everybody to watch it. I read a review about these shows once and completely fell in love with it.
