WHY I HATE SOLARIS - - - by RalphNiese WHY I HATE SOLARIS - - - by RalphNiese
wow, my monitor really sucks! like 3 months i´m like colorblind.

this is a doublepage for the fine lads over at PassengerPress [link] my bro Alexis Ziritt has recommended me to get on the void which was created by one of an artists missing pages.
the book will be all featuring different comics that all refer to movies.

backstory here is that i always slept in when seeing Solaris, the Clooney version & the Solaris theatre play all caused by sleep deprivation - and this created weird dreams which i slighty have included here + a cameo of Stan Lee - biggest sucker in the universe. :nod:

see minute 38.00 [link]
watching the whole linked movie is quite good for you, too - you might be impressed. ;)

i dedicate this to Jack Kirby, Alejandro Jodorowsky & Stanislaw Lem.

The book Solaris is amazing and as a fan of Lem, and this book, I refuse to watch any version of the movie. The oldest Russian version is more or less going according the book but Lem himself said that he was enraged to see the following Tarkovsky's version of Solaris. I refuse to wtach whatever interpretation of this masterpiece. :X

Try watching the 1978 Russian version. It's much better.

Solaris ist nur von Lem gut. Von Tarkowski würde ich "Spiegel" oder "Nostalghia" empfehlen.

I freakin LOVE the original, russian version of Solaris.
Probably due to Tarkovsky, one of the best directors ever:)

I just read this a couple of months ago! It's a little hard to get through (I'm not always smart enough for hard science fiction) but it's definitely worth it. Great comic! The composition, drawings, and colors are super awesome.

Solaris may have put you to sleep, but also inspired you to create a masterpiece! This is truly an awesome, epic work! :eyepopping: :wow: :clap:

And while I haven't seen Clooney's Solaris yet, I second the recommendation for the Russian original. As usual with Tarkovsky, it requires lot of patience and total immersion because it's more a whole experience than a movie in the conventional sense. Don't miss it, especially if you have a chance to see it somewhere on the big screen.

I recommend you the 2-disc Criterion Collection DVD. It's a restored full-length version with terrific picture quality and plenty of interesting bonus material on the second disc. It haven't gone out of print like some other Criterion DVD's, and it's still available (at Amazon for example).

Oh this is just fantastic. It seems that Solaris is something that brings out greatness in everyone. The Soderbergh film is great, the Tarkovsky film is great, the Stanislaw Lem novel is great, and this is great.

Not all Russian movies are slow, there are a lot of fast paced comedies, that are not translated or subtitled. Tarkovskij is untypical of Russian cinema. If you want to see Russian cinema at its best, look for "Peculiarities of the National Hunt", there is a DVD on Amazon.com, so you might be able to find it in some library.

While I haven't seen the Clooney version, I did enjoy the super long, slightly slow Russian original. This is a very funny satire, I love Stan Lee at the end.

Haha, i read the book and really enjoyed it, but the George Clooney movie made me more angry than any other movie I think I've ever seen. I think I actually slapped myself in the face, i can't really remember.
