I watched this on pay per view a couple of weeks ago, I had also seen it in the theaters when it came out.

However, I enjoyed it so much on ppv that I watched this movie four times during the period I had it.

Brilliant movie by Mr. Scott. I love it. I hope he considers doing the Alien series again. Normally I am totally opposed to remakes, but if he did them, I would be eager to see it.

BTW, I loved Brazil, and 12 Monkeys.

I don’t think I know Dark City.

Serenity number one followed by Empire Strikes Back. Also, do monster movies count (it seems that’s more of what Sci Fi channel shows now). If they do then Dog Soldiers (a low budget film with a squad of British Soldiers fighting werewolves in the Scottish Moors) rounds out the list.

Serenity, (also best conservative movie ever).
The Fifth Element because I love Bruce Willis’ snarkiness.
Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan, because I love all classic Star Trek and this was the best of the Trek movies.

Nevin’s Ringworld series, Laumer’s Retief series and Lewis’s Silent Planet series.

Hollywood did a great job on those films!
Who’d think there was anyone in that town with wit and competence to bring them to the screen and make a fortune!

And for anyone who was ever a ten year old boy, here’s the greatest sci fi movie you ever saw:http://archive.org/details/phantom_empire_chapter_1

...Gene Autry, an advanced underground civilization from before Atlantis, and the Junior Thunder Riders!

Dark City came out at the same time as The Matrix, and shared certain themes with it. I would say that The Matrix is a re-imagining of the old Gnostic heresy, and Dark City is a re-imagining of Plato's allegory of The Cave.

It's a sci-fi film noir where nothing is what it appears to be, memory is unreliable, and no one knows what they think they know.
