    I skipped ahead to this one because it’s one I suggested. It’s really funny to listen to other like-minded people about “classics” like this one, because we still all manage to approach the material in different ways.

    For example, if you say something in a certain tone, or the phrase “from the sea”, my geek group will raise their forearms and move them wildly while chanting “fish, plankton, sea greens – protein from the sea!” And you haven’t heard the word “Sanctuary” until you’ve heard a chorus of voices trying to say “there is no sanctuary” in slow-motion like that spinning head.

    When I was younger, I was fascinated by Logan’s Run, and, unlike Jim, I didn’t have a keen attraction to overgrown sideburns as an excuse to watch it over and over again. I just did. It was probably the first dystopia I can clearly remember encountering (because Star Wars was a drive-in movie I fell asleep during and Battlestar Galactica was another two years off, and because the 80s nuclear war movies hadn’t happened yet), and I actually enjoyed contemplating the end of life as we knew it back then.

    Also, there was no internet, so when I wanted more from a movie or TV show, I had to go looking for physical material in magazines, newspapers and books. I was thrilled when I found the Logan Trilogy, and William F. Nolan became a well-known author in my little world. I thought those books were terrific adventures.

    Maybe today, the movies, books and TV show (how did you miss that?) wouldn’t hold up, I don’t know. I have the same problem you guys do – I can’t separate the nostalgia from the story.

    But it was fun listening to you all discuss it, and thinking about the old favorite from your points of views. Thanks very much, Guys!

    Glad you liked it! I watched it again after we talked about it, and realized that I cannot stop liking the movie.

    Every few years I get the idea to make a Sandman costume for Halloween. But then I realize that nobody wants to see a middle-aged guy in black tights. Maybe a Box costume…

    Oh, but a Sandman costume would be ridiculously easy to make. It’s all black and grey color-blocking. Box would be more of a challenge. He was kind of a low-rent Lost in Space robot. The cheaper you make the costume, the better. ~_^

    love, lore
