    Earthquake

    ★★½

    Various stories of various people as an earthquake of un-imaginable magnitude hits Los Angeles.
    Risible and bad disaster movie, the advertised "Sensurround" sound probably installed to drown out the ridiculous 'special effects'.
    On renewed viewing: pretty bad, trashy entertainment.

  • Joschka und Herr Fischer

    Joschka und Herr Fischer

    ★★★

    He was a student activist, an urban guerrilla, a taxi driver; Joseph "Joschka" Fischer emerged from the Extra-parliamentary Opposition (APO) to become Hessen's trainer-clad environment minister and Germany's suited and booted foreign minister.
    Although conceived as a mouthpiece for Joschka Fischer, who tells and explains his life story in this documentary, he does show enough self-criticism and reveals new details to make this an interesting watch.

  • Alien

    Alien

    ★★★★

    The commercial vessel Nostromo receives a distress call from an unexplored planet, and after searching for survivors, the crew heads home only to realize that a deadly bioform has joined them.
    Superbly directed and highly suspenseful sci-fi thriller, the decrepit spaceship design and especially the truly abhorrent creation of the alien still influence sci-fi and horror movies to this day.

  • Blade Runner

    Blade Runner

    ★★★★

    A blade runner must pursue and try to terminate four replicants who stole a ship in space and have returned to Earth to find their creator.
    Groundbreaking sci-fi thriller in noir style with a coherent bleak vision of the future, perfectly designed, still achieves to amaze even today.
