Welcome to April and the Blogging A to Z Challenge! Here's a quick refresher of my theme and the "rules" I set for myself.
- Science Fiction and/or Fantasy movies from the 1980's
- A movie I watched when it came out (meaning when I was a kid)
What a fascinating idea. Someone from the past comes back to assassinate someone and change the future. Since this movie, that idea has been done many different ways. I loved the whole causality looping part of this movie. If the terminator had not been sent back, Reece would not have been sent back to save her. Sarah would not have fallen in love with him--thus getting pregnant with the man the computer wanted to prevent from being born. Yeah, simplistically complicated. That's how I like my scifi.
Twilight Zone the Movie (1983)
I probably remember more of the series episodes than the actual movie, but man, some of these were really freaky. In my mind this was the original X-files kind of thing. The bizarre, the unexplained, the stuff of nightmares. Years later another series followed the same pattern--The Outer Limits. Those were creeptastic as well!
And because I can't let it go unmentioned...
Total Recall (1990)
I didn't see the remake, and I haven't seen the original in years. As a kid I didn't get all the psychological things going on. I just thought it was an action packed futuristic movie and loved it. I'd like to watch it again and concentrate on the deeper levels.
