Logan's Run (DVD)
Imagine a future world where everyone is young and beautiful, and can have anything they could ever want--except the freedom to leave ... and everyone faces mandatory death at the age of 30! Michael York stars as Logan, a member of an elite police force called Sandmen who hunt down and kill "runners," those trying to escape the fate that awaits on their 30th birthday. When Logan meets Jessica (Jenny Agutter), a member of a clandestine resistance group that assists runners, he decides to escape with her to sanctuary. But a fellow Sandman frantically pursues.]]>

One of the impressions, and it could be mistaken, is that science fiction film making has had two eras of influence in my lifetime: the Star Trek original television series and the post Star Wars era. "Logan's Run," despite its hefty budget looks no better than the original Star Trek series. I don't believe this was due to ability so much as standards. It seems there was no perceived need to achieve higher believability. The costumes alone seem to give this away as they look straight out of the 60's rather than the 70's. This is interesting considering the television series "V" was so much better in almost all aspects, in terms of esthetics, just 6 or 7 years later. I'm no expert on movie history, it's just my take as a Gen Xer. The miniatures were particularly bad as there was not nearly enough micro details to sell them as believeable. They pull you out of the narrative immediately. I can't pull punches here, I have watched movies in the post Star Wars era my whole life and the strive has altered, it seems, from "good enough" to "believability." With that in mind there is no sense in which "Logan's Run's" effects are believable, they are simply terrible.
My primary gripe is with the delivery of escape into another world and its a big problem, but story is king and I really liked the story. I feel it never reached its full potential though. I'd love to see one of the Nolan brothers take a shot at a remake because the potential for plot twists is very high. If you are like me and story is your main drive then I think you would really enjoy "Logan's Run."
Movie saving story
Fun to see actors like Fawcett and Jordan (Dune)
Very good pacing, never boring
Very bad effects, costumes, sound effects, music, and action.
Well this wraps up 1976 I didn't enjoy it as much as the amazing string of brilliance I witnessed in '75 but it still exceeded my expectations. My best picture goes to "The Omen." I'm not a horror junkie by any stretch but it consumed my attention. The worst, and it isn't close, is "The Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane." Unfocused garbage, gag!
As a reminder of the rules of the my journey: 10 movies per year (roughly). I cannot watch movies I have already seen. Movies that I have heard of or seen references to or saw on shelves in places like "Block Buster Video" or "Red Giraffe" but never rented are priority. I try to see at least one so-bad-it's-good movie and at least one low budget film as well as an art film. Sometimes money is an issue as well so if you scratch your head as to why I didn't watch one it is due to priorities I'm sure. I will on occasion ad an 11th movie some years and only 9 in others. If you are following this journey I appreciate you taking the time to entertain my thoughts. I would like to interact with you but I have email issues with Amazon that I'm working out so that could take a while.
