Well, this is my first on this forum (as I carefully dip my toe in the waters, so to speak) and I'm really glad to start off by commenting on one of my favourite movies... ever.
Whenever I'm asked what my favourite movies are, I always mention this and Silent Running. (and Somewhere In Time, because I'm a softie
) Invariably, I get puzzled looks in response.
One good thing about the Will Smith version (which was okay, I didn't hate it) is that I now have a frame of reference for people. "You know the Will Smith movie where he was the last man alive? Well, it's like that. Only better. And with Charlton Heston!"
lmao you're safe posting anything in my book as long as you like both omega man AND silent running
w00t -- hewey, dewey, and louie rock
i've never understood why they change the ending from the book to the movie ... i really thought the will smith version would do the 'right' ending ... both endings left me deflated lol ...
heston's dying scene is hard to beat for most any movie tho ... the nice crucifixion-pose, hand floating lifeless in bloody-water ... nice
and yeah, you might want to hide in a room by yourself when you watch somewhere in time
lol ... nah nice movie, cool concept, and very well done, well acted ... nicely paced, never drags
but a bit woosy
welcome aboard btw
