It's one of those 70s films you play in the background on a lazy rainy Sunday afternoon while you do house chores.
Nahm gunna tell you I ain't no preacha
Love the book. How is the movie?
It was alright, I'm sure the book is better though.
I don't know what movies you like Gebre to give you a recommendation.
I wouldn't go out of my way to buy it though. If you can catch it on AMC or TCM or some movie channel.
I'm more into character driven dramas. I also like good suspense/thrillers. I pretty much hate action movies and sci-fi.
I think we need to qualify sci-fi. I think there is really good sci-fi that makes you think, that has great ideas within them but usually these aren't action sci-fi (or it can be like Minority Report that has very interesting ideas and raises interesting ethical/moral questions but unfortunately doesn't flesh that out well enough and you're left with another action movie in the second half.)
Then you have the sci-fi that's your brainless aliens, blowing stuff up, dystopian, action schlocky kind of stuff.
Sci-fi can be a mixed bag, but I think the best ones explore what it means to be human and our relationship to technology, power, science, etc.
I'm with you on the character driven stuff and suspense/thrillers, I have to agree that's more of what I enjoy the most.
Although I still enjoy popcorn turn-off-your-brain movies like Armageddon or Raiders of the Lost Ark.
