    Thx 1138.....

    To be released on 9/14/2004



    From what I understand, this movie was being made before George Lucas started on the Star Wars series, and then and it was never released because he was too wound up in Star Wars. I wanna check it out, looks cool.

    That movie looks familiar. Robert Duval looks awfully young. I thought that was already released ages ago and thats where they got the THX sound scheme from that movie name. I bet its recycled.

    The Misfits wrote the song We Are 138 about it which inspired my screen name.

    The movie was released some time ago. If I am not mistaken it was his first commercially released movie. I believe you can see the alphanumeric 'THX-1138' in all of George Lucas' movies somewhere. I remember reading that the probe droid in the beginning of Empire Strikes Back had the serial no. of THX-1138.

    Don't expect a kick-azz action movie, Prey. In fact it can be a little boring at times. But it is rather deep. An almost spoiler for you: keep the word 'budget', (No relation to the quality of the movie or its budget), in the back of your head when you see it.

    ..... I watched it about 5 years ago.

    man this movie came out in the drive in movies in the early 70's !!

    i watched it on TV in the late 70's

    kinda boring, or cerebral at some points. i always loved the chase scenes with the original GT-40 in the tunnel complex.

    ahhh, memories.


    btw this was Lucas first film.

    It came out around the same time as Logans Run, Westworld and Bladerunner (Awesome movie to this day). I guess he wants to cash in on the I, Robot thing.

    All classics. Now all we need is a remastered Plan9. I think the Lugosi shudders at the thought of that one.
