Science Fiction in general is pretty interesting, its just that a lot of media forms are ruining it by releasing rehashed plots, characters, and stories.

Isn't this just the same as asking "HEY WHO THINKS MUSIC IS GOOD??????!". Somebody had better de-moronise this thread or I'm nuking it.

November 5th, 2003, 23:58
I like music.
and i don't think that an original sci-fi movie will be released any time soon.

I agree strongly with your newly edited post.

It's not just science fiction either, but general works in other genres, such as Lord of the Rings.

Also, most sci-fi originally written for Hollywood is trash nowadays. Just look at the Matrix films...

Most Hollywood sci-fi is crap yes. Even the films that are good (Donnie Darko, Dark City, RoboCop) are highly derivative or tongue-in-cheek mockery. But like Waz said, it's not just sci fi but a general movement by the industry towards recycling old ideas into the same old crap just with different packaging (and even that doesn't change too much). STALE STALE STALE.

And yes, I called RoboCop good.

Kind of like auto manufacturing

Just link any kind of manufacturing.

Anyone here seen that MPAA anti-piracy commercial that they play before the previews in movie theatres? It's got some set painter guy whining about how he struggles to put together 12 jobs a year in order to keep food on the table, and piracy affects him more than it does the multi-millionaire studio heads (which is bullshit because he gets paid the same amount whether the film makes money or not, but that's another issue altogether).

Any way, that commercial sparked a little conversation in the one course I'm taking right now ("The Cinema") about how the major studios are just assembly-line factories. Think about it, you have hundreds of people who do one job over and over and over (build sets, paint sets, operate cameras, write scripts, act, etc). How can you say that that's not an assembly line? I mean for fuck's sake, there are people whose only job is to adjust the camera's focus. That's it. That's all they do, pull the focus when the director or cameraman or dp wants to move the focus from one distance to another.

Make it a western, with shootouts at high noon. And even bigger breasts than Belluci's.

November 11th, 2003, 18:49

November 11th, 2003, 20:08

November 12th, 2003, 05:01
really so like maverick right?

November 12th, 2003, 05:16
No. More Showgirls than Classic, make it be in the future too, but, with more horses than in the present. And, for god sake, put a fucking Dinosaur in there somewhere too, I see no dinosaurs anymore.

November 12th, 2003, 18:49

Jet Set Willy
November 12th, 2003, 19:11
That's a fair reason.

November 12th, 2003, 19:24
Fine I'll take the time to punctuate just for you guys.

Oh!!!! And how about some lesbian Amazons who initiate by having a massive orgy?

Or is that too much?

That's odd. Tidus's IP shows up as the loopback address.

November 12th, 2003, 19:32
Your right (oh well...) thats why i'm asking you guys. But I still want the stripper monkeys then have one of them die by internal combustion after she obtained a virus from the experiments that the bitch scientists did on her.

November 12th, 2003, 19:33
Hee hee thats right. You'll never find me.

Jet Set Willy
November 12th, 2003, 19:35
Tidus, you're not helping your case much by contiuning on this theme.

November 12th, 2003, 19:38
But monkies.

Oh!!! Does anyone else want to put their dispositionon Sci Fi?

November 12th, 2003, 21:02
I hope an alien virus rips you a new asshole

There's your fucking Sci-Fi

November 12th, 2003, 22:47
Thats a homo-erotic fantasy, not Sci-Fi.

November 14th, 2003, 04:28

Another part to think on adding to the script.
Alien transformations!!

Does anyone else have something to add?
