September is Classic 70s Movie month. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson. Plot Summary — The opening title card reads:.
Skip to content. Skip to navigation. In Michael Anderson's sci-fi 70s allegory, an enigmatic domestic cybersex technology called "the circuit" allows citizens to transport randomly into the homes of other prospective sex partners.
The weirdest moment in Logan's Run is probably that bit where we see Logan selecting a sex partner via a remote control, and the chosen partner teleports into his home. But the trouble with that scene isn't just the weird "dialing for casual sex" vibe — it's the terrible user interface, argues expert Chris Noessel. He gave the above talk at Boing Boing 's Ingenuity summit in San Francisco a while back, listing the best and worst computer interfaces in science fiction — and Logan's Run counts in the "best worst" category.
Nolan and George Clayton Johnson. It depicts a utopian future society on the surface, revealed as a dystopia where the population and the consumption of resources are maintained in equilibrium by killing everyone who reaches the age of thirty. The story follows the actions of Logan 5, a "Sandman", who has terminated others who have attempted to escape death and is now faced with termination himself.

Of course some people make a run for it, and have to be chased and put down by the Sandmen, the obligatory jackbooted thugs of the piece. Sex, violence, and running occur, as they are wont to do in films with entertainment value. The book, while not a story for the ages, at least veers into the truly dark.
Teen-focused sci-fi dystopias are all the rage at the moment, between this month's The Maze RunnerDivergentThe Hostand of course the mighty Hunger Games. But none of them can hold a candle to Michael Anderson's classic Logan's Runwhich was made the year before Star Wars came along and changed sci-fi blockbusters forever. Based on the cult novel by William F.
Anyway, this interface is such a hot, hot mess that I have to break it up into a couple of posts. This first one is a description and the first part of a critique. Early in the film, after a hard day of liquefying runners, Logan-6 comes home to his apartment and wants to add a little sex to his evening.
I n movie history, movie Logan's Run will be forever held up as the last example of pre-Star Wars major studio science fiction. It does show what a quantum leap Lucas' space opera of the following year was, but it's not deserving of its role as whipping boy for all that was wrong in a world before camp robots and The Force. Based upon William F Nolan's novel with the sex and drugs toned down considerablyLogan's Run is full of great ideas, portraying a utopian society where citizens are suckered into being culled at age 30 to conserve resources.
Former Sound of Music star, Playboy model, and spouse of Robert Urich, Heather Menzies, filled out one of the scantiest miniskirts ever to grace the boob tube. No skirt was shorter, more center-stage, or more prone to flying upwards. Of course, the original movie was no slouch when it came to to miniskirts either. We could postulate all day as to who filled out the costume better: Jennifer Agutter or Heather Menzies.
