  • A chilling exploration of the future is also a compelling examination of the present in George Lucas’ THX 1138, starring Robert Duvall as a man whose mind and body are controlled by the government.

    THX makes a harrowing attempt to escape from a world where thoughts are controlled, freedom is an impossibility and love is the ultimate crime.

  • 2001: A Space Odyssey is a countdown to tomorrow, a road map to human destiny, a quest for the infinite. It is a dazzling, Academy Award®-winning visual achievement, a compelling drama of man vs. Machine, a stunning meld of music and motion. It may be the master-work of director Stanley Kubrick (who co-wrote the screenplay with Arthur C. Clarke)... and it will likely excite, inspire and enthral for generations.

    To begin his voyage into the future, Kubrick visits our prehistoric ape-ancestry past, then leaps millennia (via one of the most mind-blowing jump cuts ever conceived) into colonised space, and ultimately whisks astronaut Bowman (Kier Dullea) into unchartered realms of space, perhaps even into immortality. “Open the pod bay doors, HAL.” Let the awe and mystery of a journey unlike any other begin.

  • In this classic and much-emulated work of science fiction, a rescue mission to a distant planet discovers the two survivors of a space ship that crashed 20 years before on the Forbidden Planet.

    One of the stranded humans has deciphered the secrets of the planet's long-extinct inhabitants--and the technology that gave them the power to instantly destroy their civilization. Now, he refuses to share his knowledge... and one-by-one the rescuers begin to die. Loosely based on Shakespeare's "The Tempest" and the film that introduced Robbie the Robot.
