Bold movies I've seen, Italics movies I've seen part of, or think I've seen, but am not sure about.

Metropolis (1927) - silent classic
A Clockwork Orange (1971) - Malcolm McDowell in his defining role
Brazil (1985) - need to see it again
Wings of Desire (1987)
Blade Runner (1982) - it's good, and it's better in the director's cut, but it's not as great as a lot of people say it is.
Children of Men (2006)
The Matrix (1999) - Like Highlander, I sure am glad they never made any sequels to this movie.
Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981)
Minority Report (2002)
Delicatessen (1991) - fun and quirky dystopian French flick
Sleeper (1973)
The Trial (1962)
Alphaville (1965) - painful dystopian French flick. I'm glad it's on here, because I want credit for sitting through this thing.
Twelve Monkeys (1995)
Serenity (2005) - the trailers for this got me to finally watch Firefly.
Pleasantville (1998)
Ghost in the Shell (1995)
Battle Royale (2000)
RoboCop (1987)
Akira (1988)
The City of Lost Children (1995) - not as fun as Delicatessen (q.v.)
Planet of the Apes (1968) - I really ought to see this someday.
V for Vendetta (2005)
Metropolis (2001)
Gattaca (1997) - hardly counts, but I saw a few minutes of this on cable recently.
Fahrenheit 451 (1966) - fancy spoken credits!
On The Beach (1959)
Mad Max (1979)
Total Recall (1990)
Dark City (1998) - Jennifer Connelley, Kiefer Sutherland, Richard O'Brien. On a set and a plot that was largely reused for The Matrix.
War Of the Worlds (1953) - I know I've seen bits of it. Maybe the whole thing, I can't say. I saw Tom Cruise's version, which was OK.
District 13 (2004)
They Live (1988) - I remember thinking this was an excellent movie, back in the early 90s. Probably bears watching again.
THX 1138 (1971) - I remember not enjoying this movie, back in the early 90s. I don't intend to watch it again.
Escape from New York (1981)
A Scanner Darkly (2006) - Meh.
Silent Running (1972)
Artificial Intelligence: AI (2001) - the best part was when the Blue Fairy said "I love you, David". Guess you have to be me for that to work.
Nineteen Eighty-Four (1984)
A Boy and His Dog (1975)
Soylent Green (1973) - this movie's been spoiled by everybody, up to and including Phil Hartman. I miss Phil Hartman.
I, Robot (2004) - Not totally inconsistent with the Asimov stories. The robots look a lot more like Macs than I had imagined when I was reading the stories.
Logan's Run (1976)
Strange Days (1995)
Idiocracy (2006) - caught the tail end on cable
Death Race 2000 (1975)
Rollerball (1975)
Starship Troopers (1997)
One Point O (2004)
Equilibrium (2002)
