TelePresence Almost Done...

But before it's finished:

I've got a Los Angeles teenager in the late 21st century who is fond of old fantasy and science fiction films. I need a list of five to ten films that are likely to be his favorites.

Any suggestions?

Also, to make this SFnal, anyone want to give me a title or two for a SF film from the 2020's or 2030's? :-) If I use yours, I'll Tuckerize you.


ok, i believe that 100 years from now The Dark Crystal will still bring awe to the hearts and minds of fantasy-loveing people. I mean, the craft of it and the sheer beauty and the timelessness of the theams are just... yea.

I nth the submission for The Matrix, because it pioneered effects that are currently being used to death in this era, that will later be seen as a halmark of this-era's action films. and better yet, the matrix (just the first one, i mean, i liked the other two, but they are completely different types of movies) just revolutionized the genre by makeing it slightly more mainstrem acceptable, and really revolutionary movies end up becoming classics (for example, metropolis and star wars. those are both considered present classics, and at the time were new and novel. it also couldn't hurt to put those in, depending on how vintage you want this kids tastes to be)

I also am going to have to vote for The Fifth Element just 'cause it's one of my favorites, and it's a pritty solid piece of SF (like i think all the technology of the movie hold up) and there aren't that many holes in the story, also it makes fun of itself. i mean, come on!

As for future stuff, you know that it really only IS a matter of time until Ender's Game is made into a movie, it might be after Orson Scott Card dies, but it is virtually inevitable.

Also, you should movie-ize one of your stories, just for, i dunno, something funny, a bit of patting yourself on the back. and i know your kinda modest, which is why i'm giving yourself permission to do so. :-)

Oh, and don't make another Star Trek Movie. Make the people at Paramount work harder before giving them any credit. 'Cause, in my opinion, the stuff they are putting out now is crap, and it doesn't look like it's going to get better any time soon, no not even as far off as 2030.

I wouldn't have thought of The Dark Crystal, but I'm not sure it would appeal to this particular character.

As I noted above, I'm using The Matrix.

The Fifth Element had some great scenes of a future New York City, but I'm not sure it'll be on this kid's list.

And relax: the kid's not interested in any Trek films. :-)
