Richard O’Brien, we worship thee

Dark City opens with a controversial voice over that reveals pretty much the entire plot in the first 30 seconds. For many, this ruins what should be a mysterious and bewildering (in a fun way) film-watching experience. So we’re not going to make the same mistake here at 101 Films. We’re not going to tell you that Lewis and Ian talk about pre-millennial angst, BBC TV dramas, The Crystal Maze, Last Thursdayism, The Matrix and, of course, boobs. Nope. Nothing like that. We’re certainly not going to tell you they liked the film. That would totally ruin things.

Instead, just sit back, relax, and enjoy our homage to the best sci-fi film ever to feature Richard O’Brien (with the possible exception of Flash Gordon).

The first game that Lewis ever played was "Horace Goes Skiing" on the ZX Spectrum. Yes, he's that old.
