Just watched The Quiet Earth, New Zealands own post apocalyptic movie staring Bruno Lawrence and Pete Smith - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0089869/

As far as post apocalyptic stuff goes it's not that great, however the brief shots of 80's New Zealand (mainly Auckland CBD) is awesome.

I fucking love the Quiet Earth. Bruno Lawrence was one of our finest. The whole wandering around in a nightie with shotgun thing will stay with me forever. I first saw that film as the late movie when 3 first started circa '89 or '90.

Yeah, the shotgun in the church, pointing it at the Jesus statue, "Get down here or the kid gets it!"

Also, his speech with the recorded crowd noise was awesome/sad.

Saw Oblivion a while ago too. While it's not completely terrible Moon does the same story so much better.

Charlie Day from Always Sunny and Ron Perlman dressed as much like a person as is possible!

Friend of mine in Mexico went to the premier today, said it was amazing. Pretty confident it will be. Del Toro knows his shit.

Does he though? I've only really liked one of his films.

Saw it for the first time recently and had the opposite experience. :baton: I was cautious with my expectations because it's not mentioned quite in the same breath as other classics (eg. Brazil which I'd also just seen for the first time). But thought it was great. A bit dated/stark, and obviously not funny like some of the others, but I'd count it among classics everyone should see foreshore.

I've watched a heap of the films mentioned in this thread now, so here's some quick-fire reviews.

Delicatessen: awesome, would recommend. A loony comedy in a time when cannibalism is starting to become accepted.
THX 1138: 1st half is great, but it felt as if the ending didn't resolve anything apart from the guy being able to DSW without anyone watching.
Battletruck: sick as.
1984: apparently it's quite close to the book (which I haven't read). A couple of things could've been explained better, but still good.
Zardoz: dystopia, more like titstopia.
Akira: weird but decent, though another one where things could've been explained a bit more.
Logan's Run: alright, though the robot bit is weird. Now I can appreciate the references Phil dropped on the forum.
Stalker: great, dig the mood of this one.
Rollerball: gnarly sport but weighed down a bit much by the film's metaphorical meaning.
No Escape (Escape From Absolom): ok, but the futuristic prison early on is at odds with the rest of the film. Bit Waterworldy.
The Bothersome Man: somewhat ambiguous, but mainly satire aimed at the IKEA age. A bit too deadpan for me. I'd say The Lobster ripped this off in a big way.

Also watched Sátántangó, which fits the thread. Over 7 hours long but ranked #24 overall on RYM because they love pretentious stuff. It depicts post-USSR Hungary as being almost as bleak as The Road. It's simultaneously intriguing and tedious, putting you in the characters' shoes by being a struggle to endure and understand. About the only highlight in their life is alcohol, particularly in a pub dance scene which the actors were actually drunk for...
and one of them spends 10 minutes trying to keep a cheese breadstick balanced on his forehead. :lol:

Perfectly realised labour of love
