I thought the movie 'In Time' really was ahead of our time, a leap in imagination, although it was not brilliant. The concept of time as currency was something unthinkable, yet reasonable and practically possible. While many think that money has been one of the worst inventions of mankind, I began to re-think, that perhaps the era of 'In Time' is far worse than any of the bloody wars that money has created. 'In Time' has a really frightening premise, a true dystopia.

I think it's more "why doesn't Hollywood work anymore" I haven't seen a good move in for what seems forever.

Is it just me? maybe it's just me.

The best period of Sci-Fi seemed to be late 60's to early 70's

Seems like good Sci-Fi died about 1975. Logan's Run was maybe the last really good Sci-Fi movie I can remember.

Anyone want to weigh in on if this is true and ponder why?

Wanna rethink your original post?

No, I don't need to rethink my original post, I know what my opinion is, which was all I stated. I just wanted to know what others thought.

All those movies you mentioned are great movies, but I still just see them as action movies, even though their descriptions may be sci-fi.

What's missing in those movies that the earlier ones had, was that ability to really make you wonder about things, (or at least me) it's just very hard to describe what I mean.


The Omega Man
Planet of the Apes
2001 a space oddessy


While those weren't GREAT movies, they had a certain something that just seems impossible to recreate today.

I admit it just be my perspective, but it seems the ability to capture imagination just isn't there anymore. Like the future has already passed us.

More frightening would be into the body of another human, but I think that has been done already as a film.
