"[1970s] Science fiction gas become much more seriously intentioned and, unfortunately, more pretentious. Much like the Western during the fifties and sixties, science fiction pictures like The Terminal Man, . . . A Clockwork Orange, Silent Running, and even the famous one like Soylent Green, pretend to greater themes . . . Many people simply do not enjoy seeing science fiction pictures." - John Carpenter (film director)
