This review is from: Logan's Run [DVD] [1976] (DVD)
My old VHS tape can now rest in peace, at last we have a widescreen DVD version of Logan's Run with remastered sound.
It's one of my favourite movies of all time. It has a great fast moving story, lots of beautiful people intent on living their alloted 30 years to the full but living alongside a darker underclass, the cubs, and an underground movement that helps "runners" try and find Sanctuary. The special effects are great and won a Special Achievement Award at the 1977 Oscar's and Jerry Goldsmith's music, a mix of orchestral and electronic is superb, I have the OST on vinyl' and to top all that off it has Jenny Agutter.
I agree that the effects do look dated now but bear in mind that at the time their use of lasers was ground breaking. I saw it when it first came out and have watched it countless times since and it has never lost its appeal to me.
On the extras front the commentary by Michael York (Logan), director Michael Anderson and Bill Thomas the costume designer is very informative, the costumes played an important role in portraying a society where pleasure appears to be the sole purpose. The featurette on the making of the movie has a quite grainy quality to it but still gives a reasonable deal of information and is a nice addition.
Now how about someone releasing the Logan's Run TV series with Heather Menzies?

5.0 out of 5 stars A diisturbing future dystopia, 18 July 2014
By 
Susman "Sussman" (London Mills IL) - See all my reviews
(VINE VOICE)   
This review is from: Logan's Run Blu-Ray (Blu-ray)
.
Many aspects of Nolan and Johnson's brilliant novel were significantly altered for the blockbuster film. You have Michael York's Logan 5 (not Logan 3) hero and his Sandman comrade, Francis (Richard Jordan) - who became a persistent enemy and Agent of the State instead of a secret aide to the Runners - as in the book. Also, the Sleep Shops (very reminiscent Soylent Green) were replaced with the strange but impressive public spectacle of Carousel, a festival in which those aged thirty (not twenty-one) would be blown up before the eyes of excited crowds who believed that the doomed were actually being "renewed" (reincarnated).

Instead of aging the film and thus interpreting it not relevant by 2014, the disco-era visualization of Logan's Run - the atmosphere of hedonism and consumerism continue to ably support the instructive narrative. The film is glittering, sexy abundantly rich in neon and mini-skirts - which originally helped to define the City of Domes culture in terms of a styled self-centeredness. However, in the 21st century and the narcissistic - driven Age of the likes of certain forms of social media and Facebook this then looks rather antiquated by comparison. Therefore in 2014 viewers can still easily and directly identify the City of Dome dwellers as a proxy for "for us".

The general setting from the book to the movie changed. In Logan's Run, the movie, a nuclear war rather than a "Little War" hastened the construction of the City of Domes, meaning that the world outside the City was almost entirely destroyed/contaminated -post-apocalyptic rather than merely futuristic. There is no old Man (Peter Ustinov) character in the novel. The juxtaposition here is that with age there might come wisdom? Plus he is cat friendly which is always a good thing. Perhaps the most significant change in the movie was that there was no real Sanctuary there was no place of safety and peace for the runners. Instead, Sanctuary was just a myth. In a way the best facet of Logan's Run is indeed the film's capability to build in the viewer's imagination a believable and frightening future dystopia - that said the city overview at the start of the film looks dated in its special effects.

Those who watch Logan's Run and disparage it as tacky or dated have missed the point - in the world it so self-assuredly creates. The film for all its absurdity and lack of CGI special effects shows us what might happen to a society that finally turns inward; becoming obsessed with youth, beauty and self-indulgence at the expense of everything else.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, region-free Blu-ray for classic Logan's Run, 19 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Logan's Run [Blu-ray] [1976] [US Import] (Blu-ray)
This Blu-ray is a US import. It is region-free. The extras are standard definition, from what I can tell, but also play fine in the UK.

The picture transfer is quite good. It's variable throughout but the colours are vibrant and there's some good sharpness here and there. In fact, you can tell the opening shots are models more so than before - and can spot some of the special features (like during the Carousel) with actors on wires. As has been said in other reviews, the sets themselves are quite plain which hampers the overall effect a bit. The overall effect is solid and faithful rather than outstanding.

The sound is quite good - although there's a lot of directionality applied to the voices (if someone's speaking from one side, the sound follows them rather heavily). This does not affect things too badly, but is noticeably.

The film itself is a classic. I must say it drags a little bit towards the end upon repeat viewings though. Still well worth seeing and a good one for the collection.

Lastly, there's a nice period documentary about the film. It's a bit OTT but informative and amusing nonetheless. There's also a commentary track - with lead actor, Michael York. I've not had time to listen to it yet but it's good to know it's there for future viewings.

4.0 out of 5 stars For a movie that was made 24 Years ago , it doesn't age., 14 Dec. 2000
By 
Pos-Apocolyptic thriller.Superb Film, brought back memories of the TV series on BBC (Which I can't find video's or dvd's of anywhere).
The story set in the future where once you hit age 30 it's time for the Carosel (sic) - Renewal is promised but only electrocution awaits. Based on this concept some people take offence and decide to "Run". Enter the Sandman (No metallica pun intended ;-) ) who's job it is to track down and eliminate the runners. A story then surfaces about "Santuary" where all may live until old age and natural death. York , converted into somewhat of a spy by the powers that be, has to infiltrate those who support and provide help to the runners, effectively becoming a runner himself.
York is in outstanding form as the Sandman turned Runner. Agutter is ample as his fellow runner. The special effects while obviously dated are not cheesy and one is not offended by them.
In the end this was a very tidy film, way ahead of it's time and still very enjoyable to watch to this day. Now if only I could get my hands on the videos of the origional TV series :-((

3.0 out of 5 stars Five stars for a good Region 2 DVD release (When...?), 17 Dec. 2002
This previously much-maligned movie was made in the very last days of Time Machine style visual effects. They are quite crude but nice to look at, and the film is now more popular. The plot is never forgotten, and now that people are used to visual perfection, the obvious flaws are more welcome.
I own the Region 1 DVD which is a vast improvement on VHS but still not a very good transfer, although the commentary is interesting.
A good new Region 2 DVD would be great. The cast and director were almost all British!? Possibly it looks too dated to bring out with a fanfare, or else would make no money being sneaked out quietly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Logan's Run DVD, 10 Dec. 2013

This review is from: Logan's Run [DVD] [1976] (DVD)
I bought this DVD as I had it on video years ago and realised I would love to see it again and therefore ordered the DVD through Amazon. This film is amazing. Although classed as science fiction, I think that even someone who isn't particularly into science fiction would enjoy this as it is a great storyline with fabulous effects and great acting.. I first saw it on television many years ago and I just knew I would want to see this one over and over again! By the end of the film, it will leave you feeling very happy and with a need of wanting to see it again very soon! Excellent film and I highly recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Perfect World of Total Pleasure (Not), 17 July 2014
By 
This review is from: Logan's Run [DVD] [1976] (DVD)
Logan's Run (Unabridged) was originally a book published in 1967 and its central message reflected the concerns of 1960s America. The counter-culture, identified with sexual revoution and mind expanding drugs, viewed traditional culture as having a false morality and a love of war.
In Logan's brave new world there is unlimited sex but no attachment. There are hallucinogenic drugs but no rebellion against the establishment. It is a bleak future where the demands of 1960s youth are realised but instead of the draft sending the youth to Vietnam to be killed, a computer kills them off to stop over-population.
So a runner is really a draft dodger.
This is a Luddite movie. The world has been trashed by nuclear holocaust except for the decadents who live their indulgent lives in the giant domes. The domes resemble giant shopping malls and the life of ease is really a trap. But, there is no person, group or conspiracy of lies to rebel against. They must step outside of their society (dome) to see the world as it really is, that their home is a prison.
There are so many issues that this movie deals with in such a light way that we often don't notice. Carousel offers rebirth, which we may cynically laugh at, but don't we accept the same promise from many religions? Old age is not portrayed as such a good thing either. Peter Ustinov plays the only old character as someone who is perhaps senile and recites tracts from TS Eliot's Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats. The casting of the other major characters works brilliantly in these scenes with their looks of innocence and wonder.
People may point to the shaky special effects but I just love the matte paintings of Washington in ruins and there are some great sets and locations.
The premise of Logan's Run still holds - that we must really think about the kind of life we want to lead and in our age of obesity, ADHD, "social networks" and isolation we have plenty of material.

LOGAN'S RUN [1976] [Blu-ray] [US Import] Jazzily Effective and Even Poetic! Logan's Run is Fun!

Andrew's Blu-ray Review: ‘Logan's Run’ [1976] was originally meant to be produced and released in 1968 when its cautionary tale of a futuristic society bent on destroying all but its youngest citizens might have had somewhat greater resonance in the youth-oriented culture of the time. But even eight years later, audiences found the premise fascinating, making a great financial success of what was at the time one of the most expensive sci-fi movies ever produced. The $9-million picture grossed close to $3 million in its first week of release, enough of a hit to cause its studio, M-G-M, and industry trade analysts to herald a new era for science fiction films. Although its position was quickly eclipsed by ‘Star Wars’ [1977]. ‘Logan's Run’ remains a major reference point for fans who first saw it in 1976. .

Without any conscious foreknowledge or intent, 'Logan's Run' marked the end of an era in filmmaking. The film by director Michael Anderson is the last of the old-fashioned type science fiction epics. There are two important things to keep in mind while watching it. First, it premiered in 1976, just one year prior to 'Star Wars'. Secondly, it won a Special Achievement Oscar for its visual effects, which were considered quite astounding to audiences at the time. Try to contain your disbelief as the opening credits play out over the laughably silly miniature scale model of the futuristic city. This is what science fiction was prior to 'Star Wars.' For all its good intentions and genuine ambition, the film would become instantly, painfully dated only one year after its release. And yet, looking back on the picture now, it's precisely that very datedness that makes it so fascinating and, yes, entertaining. This isn't a vision of the future; it's a vivid portrait of the past.

‘Logan's Run’ takes place in 2274, and survivors of some sort of holocaust have sealed themselves into a domed city near Washington, D.C. To control the population, the computers that run the city mandate termination for anyone who reaches the age of 30. The policy is enforced by police operatives called "Sandmen." Logan 5 [Michael York] is one of these agents assigned to terminate "Runners," those who try to escape the compulsory fate. But he begins to question the system he serves, and in the company of a young woman named Jessica [Jenny Agutter], he escapes the city to seek a possibly mythical place called "Sanctuary," pursued by his friend and fellow Sandman Francis [Richard Jordan].

What remains of civilisation has clustered in a giant domed city, shielded from the outside world. Life there is a perfect utopia. People live only for pleasure, and there's plenty of that to go around. There's just one catch: in order to maintain the city's delicate ecosystem, the population must remain at a constant fixed number. Thus, for each new life hatched in the breeding centre, an existing life must be taken away "One for one." Every member of society is assigned a set lifespan of 30 years, marked by the colour-changing crystal embedded in his or her left hand. When the crystal starts blinking, time is up, and the person must participate in the ritual of Carrousel, wherein a group of expirees is sent to an amphitheatre, raised skyward by a rotating force field, and exploded in spectacular fashion for the entertainment of the cheering crowd. Few seem bothered by this. Carrousel isn't death. It's a time for Renewal, they believe.

But not all believe this scenario. Some fear death and attempt to escape the city. These Runners pose a potential threat that may upset the social order, and must be stopped. A Gestapo type police force called the Sandmen track down and assassinates the Runners before they can get out. Logan 5 [Michael York] is one such Sandman. He lives a life of unquestioning obedience to the city's controlling computerised intelligence. Logan 5 believes in Carrousel. He has no reason to doubt, until one day the computer shaves four years off his lifeline and assigns him to go undercover as a Runner. His task: to follow the Runners to a mythical place outside the city called Sanctuary, infiltrate, and destroy it. As much as he wants to obey, Logan 5 finds his belief system challenged the further he gets away from the city, and the more time he spends in the company of a fellow Runner named Jessica 6 (the achingly beautiful Jenny Agutter).

Like many old sci-fi pictures from decades past, 'Logan's Run' is primarily a film of Big Ideas and Important Social Commentary rather than action. It's meant to be an allegory for the dangers of complacency and conformity, or some such. Its dialogue specifies and its symbolism is heavy-handed. Logan's journey outside the city brings him face to face with the detritus of civilization, where once-great landmarks wallow in neglect and ruin, and he is forced to use books, art, and even a tattered American flag as weapons to defend himself. The script even falls back on that old chestnut of man's intelligence triumphing over technology, as demonstrated by a computer that must instantly melt down and explode the first time it gets confused.

For its day, the film was modestly but not unhealthily budgeted at $9 million and backed by the resources of M-G-M, still a major studio at the time. Its production design, costumes, and extensive special effects are as elaborate as they are hopelessly corny. This is a view of the future as could only be envisioned in the 1970s. Inhabitants of the city (who are notably all Caucasian and down to the last man, woman, and child) wear colour-coded nylon togas and spandex tights. Farrah Fawcett (then Farrah Fawcett-Majors) makes a supporting appearance in all the resplendent glory of her famous feathered hairdo and dreadful atrocious acting. The city itself is constructed of particleboard sets covered in shiny surfaces. The model and miniature vistas of tiny monorail systems cruising over plastic trees from cardboard building to cardboard building look exactly like what they are. Optical effects do not appear to have advanced any in technique or quality beyond those available 20 years earlier in 'Forbidden Planet'. When the Sandmen fire their strange pistols, sparks fly from the muzzle “Buck Rogers” style while strategically placed firecrackers sparkle near the intended target. As Logan 5 attempts to break free from the city, he's confronted by a weird centurion named Box, who is part-man, part-robot, and mostly reflective disco ball.

All of which is to say that the film is a great fun filled kitsch blast of retro sci-fi fun. As an added bonus, it also has an almost shocking amount of nudity, including a freaky psychedelic slow motion orgy and Jenny Agutter's jaw-dropping disrobement. A great deal of the film's appeal, however, was due to its all-too-human characters and storyline, and here the deft casting helped tremendously. Michael York was then one of the most respected young actors around with other successful films after ‘Logan’s Run.’ Michael York also had high praise for Peter Ustinov, who was cast as the last elderly man alive. Also an accomplished writer and director, Peter Ustinov improvised much of his dialogue in ‘Logan’s Run’ "including snatches of T.S. Eliot's poems of cats a decade before a certain other Englishman made it world famousm especially in a marvellous swampy Southern accent," Michael York said.

Blu-ray Video Quality – All things considered, 'Logan's Run' looks pretty good... for 'Logan's Run'. The movie is obviously the product of a different age in filmic technique and style, as reflected in its very grainy, often flat 2.40:1 photography. The Blu-ray's 1080p transfer maintains all of the grain without any attempt to wipe it away through Digital Noise Reduction. In many scenes, it comes out thick and heavy, especially during the miniatures and optical composite shots. Colours are a little dull and sometimes appear faded, but that's a common attribute of films from the 1970s, and may just be a factor of the film stocks in use at the time. The picture generally has good detail, enough that you can plainly see many matte lines and the wires holding up the bodies during the Carrousel sequence (despite director Anderson claiming otherwise in his commentary). However, a lot of the film was shot in soft focus, and some of the composite shots are downright blurry. Again, that's a fault of the production and not a transfer flaw. 'Logan's Run' has certainly not received the sort of full-blown restoration that Warner Home Video has afforded some of its higher-profile and more beloved properties recently. Even so, for what it is, the movie looks surprisingly decent.

Blu-ray Audio Quality – I can't get over how great this disc sounds. For a movie from 1976, the 'Logan's Run' soundtrack is a real stunner. In its day, the movie played with both stereo and 70mm 6-track theatrical prints. The Blu-ray's 5.1 Dolby TrueHD audio track is presumably closer to the latter. The mix has bitingly crisp dialogue. When the voice of the computer speaks, it really sounds like it is right there in the room with you. Though perhaps not up to modern expectations for zinging surround activity, some effective use is frequently made of the rear channels. Dialogue is also panned across the front soundstage on occasion, an effect rarely used in films anymore. Best of all, is the brilliant Jerry Goldsmith's famous score, which is grand and startlingly forceful. It has plenty of reverberant bass, and is reproduced in excellent fidelity. The breadth and clarity of the music puts many modern blockbusters to shame. True, some aspects of the track haven't aged as well. Many of the crowd noises are thin and shrill. A lot of the twinkly sound effects are just kind of silly. Nevertheless, I was simply bowled over by this terrific soundtrack.

Blu-ray Special Features and Extras:

Audio Commentary: Commentary by Michael York, director Michael Anderson, and costume designer Bill Thomas: The most notable thing about this commentary featuring director Michael Anderson, star Michael York, and costume designer Bill Thomas (each recorded separately) is just how seriously they all talk about the movie. Not one of them at all acknowledges the picture's sillier tendencies, not even when referencing the nylon and spandex costumes. Michael Anderson discusses his involvement with the project, script development, and practical production aspects such as casting, sets, and special effects. Michael York talks about his background and how he came to star in the feature, and admits that he still has one of Logan's robes. The actor also gets in the track's best line, albeit perhaps unintentionally, when he says without any deliberate sarcasm, "This film preceded a lot of other science fiction films in which the special effects did really become special."

Special Vintage Documentary: A Look into the 23rd Century [1976] [9:00] This vintage promotional documentary attempts to showcase the spectacle of the film. The film ‘Logan's Run’ [1976] depicts a supposedly Utopian society in the 23rd century, but one where, as producer Saul David puts it, "there is a worm in the apple". The filmmakers use current technology and ideals of pleasure to depict this perfect future. Director Michael Anderson finds meshing these two worlds an exciting challenge, especially in trying to create something that has never been seen before in the movies. The studio's technology department plays a key role in creating Anderson and David's vision. The film's stars, Michael York and Jenny Agutter, provide their take on the film, their roles and working with each other and with fellow co-star Richard Jordan. The filmmakers also need to create the antithesis of the modern Utopian world for the scenes taking place outside of the domed world. Directed by Ronald Saland.

Theatrical Trailer [1976] [3:00] "It begins where imagination ends," exclaims this ancient trailer in quite poor condition [cropped to about 1.85:1].

Finally, 'Logan's Run' is a look back at the state of science fiction filmmaking before the revolution of 'Star Wars' came around and changed the game forever. It's difficult to imagine that the two movies, so vastly different in vision, could have been made so closely together to one another. The campy 'Logan's Run' looks at least 20 years older in comparison. But that's not to say that the film doesn't still have any entertainment value, quite the contrary. The Blu-ray has a transfer that's faithful to the source (with a few issues), but will probably not please viewers who expect sparkly clean eye candy in everything they watch. The soundtrack is more easily appreciated, but the disc's bonus features are only of mild interest. In the final analysis, this release merits a solid total guilty pleasure recommendation and it has for a very long time has been a firm favourite film of mine, despite its age and it has gone pride of place in my Blu-ray Collection. Highly Recommended!

This review is from: Logan's Run [DVD] [1976] (DVD)
When Logan's Run opens, it looks like a badly dated Sci-Fi film with obvious small scale models used to depict the dome covered city of the future and computers which look decidedly low-tech. But the strength of Logan's Run isn't in its depiction of futuristic technology, it's in the exploration of a totalitarian regime which exercises a strict social engineering policy where everyone is required to be 'reborn' at the age of 30.

Stigmata-style crystals in the palm of every human living within the confines of the biosphere covered citadel start to flash after three decades and indicate that the bearer's days are numbered. Not everyone is comfortable with the rebirth ritual though, where the thirty year olds stand on a carousel and are ceremonially exploded! Some take their chances and attempt to escape to the outside world, those who choose to `run' are hunted by the likes of Logan - a Sandman.

An underground movement where residents plan to run and establish new lives in 'Sanctuary' is infiltrated by Logan. It is revealed to him that the rebirth is a lie, residents aren't reborn - they are killed to keep the population down. It's a revelation which deeply effects Logan - how can he work to eradicate a group of people who he now knows to be right all along? The public simply accept the rebirth ritual as true because it has occurred for generations and is asserted as fact by the authorities.

Logan's adventure outside the Dome with runner Jessica is very much a voyage of discovery with the ruins of the world we know being curiosities to him. The main discoveries however aren't of people, pictures and buildings - they are his re-evaluation of what it is to be human and his realisation that free-thought is a much more romantic aspiration than incredible technology and comfortable living.

In a nutshell: There's no denying that this is a slow-paced film which looks pretty unimpressive and sometimes requires effort to simply stay sat watching it. But Logan's Run has something to say and for quite some time after the credits have rolled it will have you thinking - and that's not something all films can achieve. It's Classic sci-fi and one which has me left me wanting to read the original novel.

This review is from: Logan's Run [DVD] [1976] (DVD)
Surprisingly I had forgotten most of this, but brought it as SWMBO had never seen it although Micheal York was her favorite actor when she/he were younger - that's SWMBO & Micheal, not a gender crisis here!!

Although it was devised in the 70's (?) it does seem to contain some disturbing real thought provoking senarios - well we thought so.
It arrived quickly - as expected and is a cult classic must have for any sci-fi fan.

As an after thought Jenny A looks good in her green 'dress' - shame about the hairdo!
