Logan’s Run (1976) is a science fiction film directed by Michael Anderson and starring Michael York, Jenny Agutter, Richard Jordan, Roscoe Lee Browne, Farrah Fawcett and Peter Ustinov. In a hermetically sealed post-apocalyptic urban environment several centuries hence, Logan 5 (York) and his friend Francis 7 (Jordan) lead unquestioning lives of hedonism. Entertainment comes in the form of casual sexual liaisons and gladiatorial games in which those who do not wish to undergo euthanasia at the age of 30 vie for the illusory chance of continued life. As “sandmen,” Logan and Francis are charged with tracking down and killing “runners” — those citizens who will submit to neither “renewal” (a peaceful death) nor “carousel” (a gladiatorial battle) when their time comes. When Logan grows intrigued by a beautiful young woman, Jessica 6 (Agutter), who plans to become a runner, he is forced to question the fundamental principles of his society. And when his superiors force him to pose as a runner himself to weed out Jessica’s guerilla underground, Logan finds himself fleeing the city in search of a mythical place called Sanctuary, where people are allowed to live out their natural spans.
Logan’s Run was very popular at the Saturn Awards, winning the six awards it was nominated for: Best Science Fiction Film, Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction, Best Costume, Best Make-up and Best Set Decoration. It was also nominated for the Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation, the older award for science-fiction and fantasy films, and for the Nebula Award for Best Script. For the film, Anderson was nominated for the Golden Prize at the Moscow International Film Festival. The film won a Special Academy Award and was nominated for two more, Best Cinematography and Best Best Art Direction-Set Decoration.
The crew of a space ship confronts an evil galactic ruler out to rule the universe.
Escape From Galaxy 3 (1982) is an Italian science fiction film Directed by Bitto Albertini. Exciting sci-fi action fuels this tale of star-crossed lovers (Sherry Buchanan, Milt Jamin) who try to escape from the titular galaxy, which is ruled by a sadistic madman. Finding their way to Earth, the couple pursues a forbidden love affair that could doom their adopted planet. The funk and fantasy is turned up high for this vintage Italian space opera.
