^^ Zardoz is another example. TMP has a lot of that as well. I've often wondered what direction science fiction movies would've taken had Star Wars not been made.
I think Alien
and Blade Runner
are big contributors to the used aesthetic as well, perhaps even more so than Star Wars
, which spent a lot of time on the Death Star, a rather sleek and sterile environment.
Of course, if Star Wars
hadn't been made, 20th Century Fox wouldn't have fast tracked Alien
, and if Alien
hadn't been made, Ridley Scott probably wouldn't have been hired to do Blade Runner
. I guess it all does go back to George Lucas.
