  • RoboCop (obviously, even though it's barely sci-fi)

    Blade Runner (OF COURSE)

    Dark City

    District 9

    In number theory, a perfect number is a positive integer that is equal to the sum of its positive divisors, excluding the number itself. For instance, 6 has divisors 1, 2 and 3 (excluding itself), and 1 + 2 + 3 = 6, so 6 is a perfect number.


  • Oh shit, I forgot Starship Troopers! Yeah, this one too.

  • Paprika is one of my favourite anime movie.

    Yeah, Paprika is quite insane. The first time I watched it, I was like "wait, it's kinda like Inception, isn't it?". Then I learned Nolan was indeed inspired by Paprika for his film. Too bad he didn't go as crazy as Paprika in the dream sequences. When you compare the two, you realize Inception is pretty boring in its depiction of dreams. It's moslty people shooting with guns. Meh.

    Yeah. Western movies and Asian movies are very different in style. Especially japanese animes are very unique. Like Howl's Moving Castle, Spirited Away etc. It's like there are no barrier in their thinking. They really go out of the box. While western directors feel like make their movies boring on purpose. :D Other example would be Bong Joon-ho's Memories of Murder. The film is so good and entertaining to watch. While David Fincher's Zodiac is so boring.

  • its a genius work


    was salty for a long while how such a bizarre concept was copied by inception but never given a mention

    Yeah. Star Wars is inspired by Akira Kurosawa's films. West still studies his cinematography in their Universities. Hunger Games inspired by Battle Royale etc. It's so sad to see great films are replicated by west but not getting enough recognition themselves.

    Well it depends. Guillermo del Toro for example has a vivid imagination, his films are full of crazy creatures.

    In that regard, Nolan is one of the worst examples you can find. The dude has some legit crazy ideas for his stories but what he makes of them is rather dull.

    Yeah. Guillermo del Toro is amazing. My fav film from him is Pan's Labyrinth. I think it's just the film style. Some wants weird & bizarre styling. Some just wants pretty plain & normal style.

  • :omgr: Fifth Element, Predator. I have only watched 2005 version of War of the Worlds.

    1953 US 'War of the Worlds' closely follows the original radio broadcast. A UK version is true to original script.

    2005 Tom Cruise is good and also the UK versions. The 1953 version is also a time capsule of 1950's Los Angeles.

  • Solaris - Andrei Tarkovsky

    Stalker - Andrei Tarkovsky

    Oh damn, big brains here
