Gritty, dirty real world pschidt… small droids, hissing Co2, orange space suits, odd food, weird interfaces (but not exclusively)
Think along the lines of:
Blade Runner (of course)
I could probably Google it, but where’s the fun in that?
Oh - big up Douglas Trumbull RIP
No idea is a bad idea… all thoughts welcome!
Have you seen the “Turkish Star Wars”?
It’s a right old trip.
i imagine everyone has, by now… but if you haven’t, watch THX-1138. it’s one of my all-time favorite films.
I have the fancy version DVD of it, and the actual student film is included and it’s awesome too.
Perhaps it doesn’t quite fit the bill but we loved “It Follows” - kind of a spooky supernatural 80s retro vibe
Also from around the same time “Under the Skin” - great Mica Levi soundtrack too
Cheers team… keep ‘em coming
Surprisingly enough the Loki TV show on Disney+
Also, a lot of John Carpenter’s 80’s stuff.
Under the Skin is amazing
definitely fits odd food!
One of my favourite films, some of the acting is very bad but the atmosphere is so good
I remember being quite freaked out by this one. Terrible acting and a ridiculous finale but strangely compelling
Another vote for Solaris, and his later film, Stalker
Roland “Independence Day” Emmerich’s LoFi beginnings.
“In a contemporary review, Variety referred to the film as “boring, uneventful” and “feeble sci-fi effort from West Germany”.” That is pretty on point.
Waaay better and a real mindfuck:
And of course Neill Blomkamp’s movies, with his first one being my favorite:
Just remembered a couple:
There have been rumours about a sequel to district 9 for years. Can’t wait for that!
Scanners was on my list originally then I took it off because it doesn’t have much of what the OP asked about (Co2 hissing, etc), but it’s a fantastic movie. Even with the weird acting.
