    a Sci fi film from the 70s sometime.
    its over two hours and there is really no music, but despite that it is truly ambient. The cinematography is truly stunning and very much typical for the time with the split screen and constant text bars saying what day or time or level of detail in the governmental science complex etc. you need to revisit this film. its one of those they got right back then, what else you got you know any other scifi films from then like that? that's actually good?

    I thought this was going to be a thread about a new strain of weed that sends you to another galaxy.

    I'm a little bit disapointed.

    No body cares about your disappointment Jay Reilly.
    Besides drugs are bad. People who smoke pot like to rape white women and watch sci-fi movies. Then they tell all their weed smoking friends about the movie leaving them disappointed.

    I have no idea what film to suggest to you, perhaps one that meets the criteria you have mentioned in the original post. Thinking about it tho, that's exactly what you want. Well not on my watch sunshine. I think I'm going to go down a different route and suggest something to you based your real interests. You know which interests I'm talking about. Don't play coy with me big boy.
    Also I think the title of the film should be naturally pronounced with a rising inflection on the last word of the title, and if there is a number in the title it should be a composite number just for shits a giggles because thats how i roll. i've been on lots of rolls recently, I should change my name to butter.
    Anyway the real purpose of this long, meaningless and tedious rambling is moot. Watch backdoor sluts 9, it makes Crotch Capers 3 look like Naughy Nurses 2!

    Do they? I smoke pot and usually all I manage is a wank before I commit to being horizontal on the couch for a few hours until I get hungry.

    Maybe they've got the Andromeda strain where your from.

    You got a link?

    I think the only sci-fi films I ever liked was the first two Aliens.

    oh man. moon is the shit. big time, the shit as in an unquantifiable mass of the shit. i try to empathize with things albeit on a very regular basis, but this one time it coincided with watching that movie, moon, and i have to say, one of the things that makes it so great is that when you try and put yourself in his shoes and think of how you would react in such a situation, i just have no flipping idea like what the HELL would i do, in that situation. awesome film. and thank you jaros, thats the one!


    ooooh that reminds me, must watch the original aliens now! b2b maybe even 4 even though its a travesty and total and complete and utter every negative adjective followed by the most extreme expletives in any language '


    but farscape! you guys seen farscape? i just saw the first 3 episodes and it is gooooooooooood

    tried watching to lawnmower man and as a kid it really thrilled me, but it hasnt aged very well. no sir. its a silly silly film.

    then i watched dogma, and i dont care what anybody says, its an awesome film. whos house! runs house!! whos house runs house, say what?

    I agree with OP.

    1.) He is unè fargutè
    2.) August Underground 74 was utter shit & about as scary as the Care Bears Movie
    3.) Totes & Blates

    i never did watch k-pax, its about a guy thats locked up for being crazy but might very well be from the planet k-pax right? kevin spacey?
    and its good you say. really good, actually? but is it like the andromeda strain. boy thats a good film. love that film. i could watch it on repeat.

    you know what makes me shiver with pleasure every time, its the black spell of destruction, round the 4.34 mark.

    Yup, that's K-Pax. It's not as super-deep and open ended as people make it out to be but it's a decent movie. Def worth a watch. (y)
