    Zardoz reminds me of late nights during my teenage years. All those slightly odd 70's films seemed to be shown late at night on TV and always caught my attention. That heady mix of sci fi, weirdness, and a bit of sex was too alluring. Barbarella anyone?

    Ya! I know what you mean! One late night Friday I saw The Omega Man, the next week, it was Zardoz, and I loved all those kinds of movies ever since!


    I first watched Logan's Run on a Saturday afternoon on the USA Network, haha.

        Fahrenheit 451, THX 1138, Soylent Green? Most seem very cheap to buy so I might have to purchase a few and relive the nostalgia.

          Fantastic idea!


          Outland was in 1981, but for me, it falls in the same category,hehe.


          I watched THX 1138 a couple years ago, but did not see the special edition dvd.

          I am caught up on my "bring back memories collection" with Soylent Green, Logan's Run, 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968 ), Planet of the Apes (1968 ) plus the rest of the "Apes" boxed set. Also, The Omega Man, A Clockwork Orange, then to enter the 80's, I have Blade Runner and even later-They Live.

          I love 60's to 80's sci-fi!

            I have been picking up sci-fi video complilations on DVD at a very low cost. The one set cost me $9.99 and boasts over 13 hours of original uncut movies.
            These are the movies:
            The Phantom From 10,000 Leagues
            THE BRAIN THAT WOULD'NT DIE
            (featuring Jan in the pan)
            Teenagers From Outer Space
            The Phantom Planet
            First Spaceship On venus
            They Came From Beyond Space
            The Atomic Brain
            The Last Woman On Earth (Roger Corman)
            The Giant Gila Monster
            The Amazing Transparent Man


            Another set that I picked up has:
            Horrors Of Spider Island
            The Wasp Woman (Roger Corman)
            The Killer Shrews

            Voyage To The Prehistoric Planet
            Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde


            These compilations have a good dollar value and the picture clarity and sound is quite good. I taped The Phantom Of The Paradise and The People Under The Stairs on VHS last week. They are both a couple of classical sci-fi / horror / comedies.
