It presents itself in bits and pieces

It can look easy like A and B

or make me nostalgic for Caspian sea

Sometimes one does not have access

when and where it's needed

But try we must to reach its buttom

Uncover its mask or find where it is hidden

Even though it does not smile or shed tears

it does make us emotional, be it happy or sad

Sometimes it is in back of our minds

Other times, it stares at us 

we can forget it or vaguely remember

But we honor it every second

simply by giving nothing or just one thing

In return it does bring magic for us.

Prometheus is still in theaters. It's worth checking out on the big screen.

Dear Fesenjoon: Out of the movies that you named, I have only watched Dune; back in early 1980s when it came out. All I remember from the movie is that as you noted, it was bizarre. I would have to watch it again.  Thanks for all the information about the sci fi movies.

Dear Latina, thanks for your comment. I am glad you liked it.

Very interesting view. How unique.

I am a star trek watcher, so I like this very much. :o)






OK then...

Well then let me impose upon you my top 3 recommendations of Scifi movies of all time, which I definitely think you should check out, if you have a liking for Scifi cinematic works:

1. Blade Runner (1982)

Like many scientists, this film tops my list of most favorite sci-fi film of all time:


2. 2001 Space Odyssey (1969)

It's not just HAL 9000. The film is very philosophically oriented.How many films are there that actually influence your outlook on life? This is one of them (for me at least).

3. Dune (1983)

This film is so freakishly similar in ideology to Shia thought and mythology that it always strikes me as refreshingly bizarre. It's one of those scifi films thats wayyyyy out there on the fringes of sanity. Either you love the film, or you hate it. I ended up buying the original film and the 2 mini-series. The Mahdi, Jihad, Chadori women with telepathic powers. Are you kidding me? This movie has always been fun to watch.

Honorary Diploma: Gattaca (1998)

Very well made. I always recommend watching it to my students (!)

There are a few others, but these are the very top. I hope you enjoy them, like I did.

thanks Fesenjoon2 for your comment

I have not watched Hal9000 in action, but I take your word for it.

This guy; Hal Varian, seems to be an intresting person who knows a lot about data.



Data was cool

by Fesenjoon2 on

but I think (i.e. IMO) Hal 9000 was something else. The scene were he gets disconnected always haunts me.

در زمان بچگی من پیشتازان فضا را تماشا میکردم , اما بعدی را که داتا در آن بود , خیلی کمتر دید ه ام . تصویر داتا بنظرم برای این بلاگ مناسب آمد . ممنون از دیدارتان .

آرتور چارلز کلارک: «پیشتازان فضا که در چنان روزگاری در تاریخ بشری ظاهر شد، دورنمای تمدن‌های فضایی دوردست را بسیار عامه‌پسند ساخت.

 قسمت بعد از قسمت، تصور رویارویی با تمدن‌های بیگانه و احترام گذاردن به تمامی اشکال حیات را که آن زمان هیچ محبوبیتی میان مردم نداشت، ارتقاء بخشید. این‌کار را هم بدون وعظ و خطابه و با حس شوخ‌طبعی همیشگی انجام داد.»

با سپاس از شما که داتا را به خاطر آوردید ... او هیچگاه پیر نمی‌شود،هیچ حس ندارد و نمیمیرد و همه چیز را به خاطر دارد.
