It was released in 1971, I believe as a TV movie. Directed by Steven Spielberg, but without a lot of fanfare. Great movie if you can find it!

The previews ruined Hot Fuzz for me since most of what they showed happened after a supposed big moment in the movie, so you knew it did not happen like you were supposed to think it did. (I hope that made sense).

It was a thoughtful space movie that was a darker antithesis to the more fantastical interstellar or gravity.

Also since doing twilight, Robert Pattinson has become a very good actor. Three great roles High Life, Good Time and The Rover.

THX 1138, George Lucas's big screen debut about a future dystopian society. When the protagonist's "watcher" asks him what's wrong and if he's taken his medicine it'll make your skin crawl.

Logan's Run with Michael York and some hot Australian chick. In another future society, no one is allowed to live past 30 unless you win a game that, literally, no one ever wins.

Re: Logan's Run

Funny you mentioned this one: I have it on my book stand by the front door.

In mid-March a friend told me this Corona thing reminded him of the apocalyptic 'nobody-lives-past-30' genre of movies. He told me about Logan's Run, so I got it from the local library. Then the library closed. By the time our Augusta library reopens on June 1, I'll have had that movie over 10 weeks.

And yes, Jenny Agutter is a babe. Funny though, because Farrah Fawcett received higher billing for a very brief and bland role.

I apologize for taking so long to get back to you to you. I honestly didn't expect anyone to respond.

I haven't watched it in probably 30 years but I still remember well, the reaction of the crowd in the city center, when Logan and his girlfriend announce to them that they won't die if they don't play the game. It does remind me of this Corona thing.
