I have theory that many of the board members' favorite movie list would match up very closely.

What's your list?

Here'a handful of favorites that I imagine will resonate with this crowd.

the verhoven trilogy-
Robocop
Total Recall
Starship Troopers

Road Warrior

Conan the Barbarian

Alien

Dark City

John Carpenter-
The Thing
Big Trouble in Little China
Escape from New York

There. That's a start!

Return of the Living Dead was directed by O'Bannon. It introduced the concept of zombies wanting "BRAIIIIINNNNNSSS!" specifically (not just shuffling around wanting to cannibalize).



Oh and here's something I just now discovered - the Tarman (photo above) was created for O'Bannon by illustrator William Stout!

I'd recommend Godard's Alphaville for BR fans.

The original sci-fi noir detective art flick.
