"Solaris" by Stanislaw Lem
© N/A
Stanislaw Lem, who wrote the novel Solaris, passed away yesterday in Poland.

He was "one of the most popular science fiction authors of recent decades to write in a language other than English, and his works were translated from Polish into more than 40 other languages. His books have sold 27 million copies."

His other works included Hospital of the Transfiguration, The Invincible, The Cyberiad, The Star Diaries, and The Futurological Congress.

Lem's writing focused on "new scientific discoveries and the evolution of man and technology."

I haven't read anything from him either, but sometimes this is how to discover new great works.

2001 sucked ass.

Jeezy-creezy, CHT! Your like the grinch that stole fandom. Is there anything you DO like?

Ain't she precious when she's all indignant? Kubrick was a visionary and I dig all of his work, especially 2001 and Dr Strangelove. CHT just hasn't learned to stop worrying

Try laying off the shrooms the next time you post, dietvanilla. I'm a man, so if you think I'm cute, you're gay. 2001 has been solidly in the 'laughably bad' category since I saw it when I was a kid.

Once again CHT has descended from his lofty perch on high to bless us all with the knowledge that we all have terrible, terrible taste when compared to his supreme and finely honed sense of cinematic judgement. Regail us, please, truth, with more of what you think is bad

Once again killer has ascended from his shrine to Hal to vomit on his keyboard and sarcastically feign intellectual curiosity.

As to your question: buddy cop movies, most old sci-fi movies/TV shows (especially the dystopian ones of the 70's), the original Star Trek, Uwe Boll movies, medical procedurals, professional sports, anything glamorizing incest, spider's posts, anything Apple, totalitarianism, movies with neither a plot or hot chicks, propaganda films, and your mom's bj's.

My mother? Seriously? Ive rarely agreed with you, and Ive always thought you were a tool, but I did have a modecum of intellectual respect for you on some level. But momma jokes are the primary indicator of a dull wit and a weak thinker. It does nothing to stimulate our debate/arguement/whatever. Plus its just trite. perhaps you should examine rather this judgemental butthole demeanor is really working for you, because it does absolutely nothing to further your point, besides demonstrate what a tiny, insecure, little person you are.

With that last item, I was trying to present humor that was down to your level enough that you would comprehend. I personally could not care less what you think of me.
