    pretty much a decent conversion of Asimovs book. the book and film had me in tears with it's scenes of human mortality.

    Outland
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0082869/?fr=c2l0ZT1kZnxteD0yMHxzZz0xfGxtPTIwMHx0dD1vbnxwbj0wfHE9b3V0bGFuZHxodG1sPTF8bm09b24_;fc=1;ft=21;fm=1


    one of sean connery's best films. a scifi version of a western theme. lone sheriff with no backup in an isolated town, solving local crime and hearing because of it hitmen are coming in on the weekly coach to take him out

    The Final Cut
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0364343/?fr=c2l0ZT1kZnxteD0yMHxzZz0xfGxtPTIwMHx0dD1vbnxwbj0wfHE9dGhlIGZpbmFsIGN1dHxodG1sPTF8bm09b24_;fc=1;ft=20;fm=1

    new robin williams film. totally hardcory scifi storyline, few flashy visuals, utterly unmissable

    Nothing
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0298482/?fr=c2l0ZT1kZnxteD0yMHxzZz0xfGxtPTIwMHx0dD1vbnxwbj0wfHE9bm90aGluZ3xodG1sPTF8bm09b24_;fc=2;ft=7;fm=1

    David Hewlett (SGA fame)starring in what to me resembles a drama students warm up erxercises exploring emotion and bodily movement. great viewing

    Donnie Darko (watch both versions in order)
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0246578/?fr=c2l0ZT1kZnxteD0yMHxzZz0xfGxtPTIwMHx0dD1vbnxwbj0wfHE9ZG9ubmllIGRhcmtvfGh0bWw9MXxubT1vbg__;fc=1;ft=20;fm=1

    the original format makes you think of donnie as suffering a mental disease and coincidences provide the incidents around him. then since the first film, anyone who has explored the cryptic official film site will have gleamed some insights into the story, was the scifi real? was he really suffering from a mental disease only? the directors cut throws all the information into the film and it becomes true scifi


    Imposter
    http://www.lisashea.com/hobbies/pkdick/imposter.html

    a sadly overlooked film starring Gary Sinise. major twist near the end of the film. very fast paced film due to the infomation supplied along the way almost always being a step behind what you see and hear. pretty good story that could come straight out of a hardcord scifi short

    Runaway
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0088024/?fr=c2l0ZT1kZnxteD0yMHxzZz0xfGxtPTIwMHx0dD1vbnxwbj0wfHE9cnVuYXdheXxodG1sPTF8bm09b24_;fc=3;ft=101;fm=1

    still good to watch now, if you can look past the bad guys awful caricature. Tom Selleck is great in this one, taking his magnum PI style of acting into the future

    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0338013/?fr=c2l0ZT1kZnxteD0yMHxzZz0xfGxtPTIwMHx0dD1vbnxwbj0wfHE9ZXRlcm5hbCBzdW5zaGluZXxodG1sPTF8bm09b24_;fc=1;ft=21

    for the more intelligent viewer, we once did a poll on this and the only people who walked out of the cinema having understood the film totally before they left the darkness of the stalls have an IQ of over 120. seriously! we actually held a poll on this when i was admin on a media site :) (oh, i am 124 by the way!)

    Casshern
    http://www.casshern.com/

    while people complain of far too much talking and not enough action, the long length of this epic film contains some essential live manga and some great military scifi moments. by word of mouth this film set the internet on fire. stick "casshern" in google and count the pages linking to forums where people are discussing and singing it's praises


    Some of those imdb links are HUGE!!! i'll have to learn how to shorten them for forums at some point!
