Re: TCM Genre movies schedule...

^Well, yeah; the main difference is that it shows the old-school naturalism thriving alongside and butting up against the sterile technocracy, rather than just showing the technocracy dominating everything. True, movies like THX-1138 and Logan's Run have the technocracy being escaped or defeated in favor of nature, but it's a nature that's abandoned and depopulated, having been conquered or rejected long ago, and we don't get to see its reclamation. So the sense of oppressive sterility is more dominant there.
