A Cultural History
I'm just now noticing that there's no way that visor can seal in the down position.
its been years since I watched this. Does anyone close their visors down in the film?
You see the visor down right at the end around the 1:30:25 mark which is pretty weird because hes back on earth at that point also for some reason the big fabric neck ring is undone,had they gone for a proper fitting metal/plastic neck ring it would`ve looked even better but I still think it looks pretty good all things considered actually.Anyway heres some snapshots http://iforce.co.nz/i/x50pfyrs.1ff.jpghttp://iforce.co.nz/i/ncq3lfwc.1l3.jpghttp://iforce.co.nz/i/kmxnbs3b.ydg.jpg
*Waves hands* "force fields!"This blog is great! Lots of historical interest as well as artistic/hobby inspiration material here. Nicely done :)
Thank you Allison M, and welcome. No end in sight yet. Plenty of old stuff and new stuff still to be blogged.
Thanks Tim. A small update to the post is on the way
I really liked this movie despite its flaws,at the time the use of digital effects for the space/battle scenes was quite revolutionary but now sadly they look quite dated.Personally I think this film is long overdue for a re-make,interestingly altho` the video game featured in the movie was just a prop/digital effects a group has released an actual working game of it,they also did the same thing with the space paranoids game from Tron.Another little bit of interesting trivia is that Catherine Mary Stewart stars in this and she would later be seen wearing a spacesuit of her own in 1987s NightflyersI also came across this fake movie posterhttp://www.bjornjessen.dk/images/poster_espace.jpg
It's a film for kids and as such it really delivers, while still being enjoyable for adults. Contrast with, say... "Cloak & Dagger" which is not good if you're over 10.
Thank you Tim, a mini review, some facts and a link to another post! Value for money, as ever.
