  1. Hey there,

    I just made a bunch of posts in the Science Fiction thread in the off topic forum.

    Horror Movies

    I haven't seen ONE good horror film in years. There are some average ones and some obviously trashy ones but not a single decent, suspenseful, frightening, psychological madness in years. TIDELAND But that was rather 'cute' horror, degenerate Alice In Dopeland, I still wait for something more edgy and diabolic than that. xD

    Inception

    Ahahahah, like we didn't get enough explanation in the movie.... Good movie though, nicely paced, brilliant editing, but way too explanatory and forced, could have been better scripted as well...
  4. Yeah, I will contribute to this topic as well, after a long time, just out of fun, since I very rarely listen to psy trance past few years... And after all these years I realized that next 5 albums I simply cannot stop listening and are absolutely timeless... BLUE PLANET CORPORATION - BLUE PLANET BATTLE OF THE FUTURE BUDDHAS - TWIN SHARKFINS MFG - PROJECT GENESIS UX - ULTIMATE EXPERIENCE MIDI MILIZ - NON STANDARDS All these 5 albums have very strong entrancing effect on my brain, they just never get tiring... ....being dark, massive, and very psychedelic... cream crop of psychedelic trance, except of Non Standards which is just plain fun. xD

    Avatar (2009)

    DISNEY TRIPPING OUT ON LSD, GIVING BIRTH TO BASTARD CHILD OF TERMINATOR AND POCAHONTAS. But nevertheless, visually impressive, thrilling ride in 3D World, if only he hasn't used every single clichee every 5 minutes through the whole film. 5/10

    Trailers

    That is because Maurice Sendak was working with Spike Jonze on the set, collaborating together, he even approached Jonze exclusively cause he wanted HIM to adapt it... hardly wait to see it...

    Trailers

    The Road Where The Wild Things Are Shutter Island Surrogates I've heard Surrogates suck, but it visually looks good...

    Trailers

    I sort of agree, that is why I described it like Terminator on LSDisney, those blue aliens in romance look too much like Disney to me...

    Trailers

    The Last Airbender Imaginarium Of Dr. Parnassus New Cameron looks a bit disappointing, like Terminator on LSDisney... But new Terry Gilliam looks fukken awesome... As well Fantastic Mr. Fox... looks very old school and funny...

    9 ( 2009 ) SHANE ACKER Finally a true gothic animated film ! Whoa, this was thrilling and short ride, spot on ! There are no bullshits, overused dialogues, clichees and other kiddy oriented animated forms. This is pure adult animation, dark to its core, but still with some optimism. Of course, it wouldn't have this look if Tim Burton wasn't the producer, his name is written all over this dark masterpiece. The story is ok, nothing that groundbreaking or spectacular but what makes this anime so special is the actual ANIMATION. Wow, the attention to details and presenting post apocalyptic world where whole humanity is erased by machines is breathtaking. The editing and sound editing is pure mind fuck. This is surely one of the most quality anim3 I have ever seen... Gritty, Gothic, Industrial tale of man vs. machine issue... 10/10
  12. Actually very good entertainment. If you overcome the initial feeling, like when I watched the trailer, thinking, fuck, what is he doing now, after I saw it in cinema I was surprised to see a well constructed Tarantino's fantasy... It is Kill Bill set in Nazi times, we have again grieving woman seeking for revenge, being persistent in her decision, ready to do anything. Only this time we got a blend of shpagetti western, cat/mouse mind games and lots of dark humor. The role of Christoph Waltz is oscar worthy, such a powerful performance, Brad Pitt is almost un-noticable beside this acting giant. Whole visual look is a treat, cinematography and periodic look is pretty precise. So, I was in the end quite entertained, as usual with Tarantino, he never tempts to make great art, he is there just to entertain, and he is bloody good at it. 8/10
  13. Oh yes, brilliant album, so trippy... I wouldn't know anything to recommend in that vein right now, that is how it is original.
  14. Groups like : FLUKE, LFO, SPOOKY, 808 STATE could fit into that genre....
  15. Completely as expected, nothing short of brilliant... not all of the new stuff are that great, but HEMO STATIC II and TELEKINETIC are truly great 'new' old tracks... Telekinetic does sound like pre-Antidote track, but it's still great. DNA sounds like ARCANA but it doesn't matter. I like to hear proto tracks, in any form, especially this perfectly remastered. For me, whole release is one delicious proto trance and goa collection, and I agree with whole choice of remastered tracks, I could only exclude HEMO STATIC/OVERBLOODY FLOOD track put together and change it for INTRIGUE. BAROCCO and RESTORE HOPE are also very interesting unreleased tracks, RESTORE HOPE being so dark and weird, and BAROCCO so light and cheerful, like complete opposites. Overall, great ! 92 %
  16. Amon Tobin rulez !!! BRICOLAGE, SUPERMODIFIED, PERMUTATION, FOLEY ROOM, all great albums. I've heard him playing DJ set and it was one of the best mixture of trip hop, breakbeat and drum'n'bass I've ever heard...
  17. I think new ratings should be strictly in numbers and percentages : 10 - 20 % - WEAK 20 - 30 % - MILD 30 - 50 % - AVERAGE 50 - 60 % - SOLID 60 - 80 % - STRONG 80 - 100 % - POWERFUL Example : BRAINMAN - BRAIN FOOD - 15 % ETNICA - NITROX - 27 % TALAMASCA - MUSICA DIVINORUM - 45 % KOXBOX - THE GREAT UNKNOWN - 60 % SHAKTA - THE ENLIGHTENED APE - 70 % INFECTED MUSHROOM - THE GATHERING - 80 % X-DREAM - RADIO - 80 % MIDI MILIZ - NON-STANDARDS - 85 % MFG - PROJECT GENESIS - 90 % ASTRAL PROJECTION - ANOTHER WORLD - 90 % HALLUCINOGEN - TWISTED - 95 % PLEIADIANS - IDENTIFIED FLYING OBJECTS - 97 %

    I wanted to put Event Horizon, but didn't quite fullfilled the cult status, but it is still very good film.

    Sci-Fi Movies

    I agree about these ones with you guys, I will add them to the list. How could I forget Andromeda Strain ?
  20. Both equally cause they are both part of one story. I liked different directing approaches he did with both films. That was quite an innovative film making for such random rip offs from other movies as he said himself. And to me, Uma Thurman's performance is possibly the best female performance I've seen to this date, in both films, her role was difficult, transforming all the time. Of course Caradine And Madsen are standardly brilliant.

    Sci-Fi Movies

    It is really a shame that such rich and descriptive genre rarely gets properly presented nowadays, relying entirely on CGI techniques, with no substance, cause whole genre back in the days, when sci-fi genre was progressing, with low budgets and ambitious ideas, was starting to set the standards for the new and modern sci-fi genre. There are only few of the new films that can redefine that genre nowadays, and that is a shame, cause now, when we have technology, we should make good stories right. But, since producers are dictating the production, the quality of the picture has to be lower down in tone, adopting the script for wider audiences, making the original stories or ideas bland and naive without any REAL progress of ideas there. Like there are plenty of cyber punk and sci-fi books by famous sci-fi writers that no one dares to film cause they are such big projects, so we are doomed to 'entertaining' kind of science fiction, without real substance. So, with the 'adopted' script for wider audiences the collapse of the story starts and you end up with heavily produced bunch of crap. Ironic thing, since film production should be all about presenting big and quality ideas accurately and uncompromisingly. So, most of this genre after THE MATRIX went down the drain, and I could really rarely see any new brilliant sci fi film ( waiting for AVATAR later this year, maybe that will set the new standards ). And I've heard good things about MOON. I like minimalistic sci-fi ideas. And since there are very little number of true scientific kind of sci-fi, I put in the poll most of dystopian/utopian futuristic films, one of my favourite genres of sci-fi. So, I want to know which science fiction cult movies from the list defined the genre for you. And also add the ones I missed to put in the poll... My pics are most definitely 2001, THX 1138, SOLARIS, BLADE RUNNER and THE MATRIX.
  22. Yeah, that one is very trippy album. I can also add : KORINTH - SIGN OF ETERNAL RETURN MNEMONIC - MONOKULTUR COIL - TIME MACHINES
  23. SYNAESTHESIA LUSTMORD MNEMONIC RAISON D'ETRE MIND NECROSIS FACTOR DELERIUM ( early stuff ) This is all dark ambient meets industrial, very deep and heavy stuff.
