YMMV / Logan's Run

The Movie

  • Awesome Music: This was one of Jerry Goldsmith's major movie scores.
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The scene with Box the robot doesn't quite fully qualify, as it explains what happened to the other people who escaped, but it still seems quite gratuitously weird.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: Logan and Jessica re-enter the city by diving into the Ft. Worth Water Gardens pool, where twenty-eight years later four people drowned.
  • Inferred Holocaust: So, with the city destroyed, how will the people survive when they can't fend for themselves?
  • Narm: This "NOOOOO! Don't go in there! You don't have to die, well no one has to die at 30! You can live, LIIIIIIVE!"
    • "All frooooozeeeeeeen!"
  • Nightmare Fuel: Box, the cheerful-voiced caretaker robot in the ice cave, cheerfully informs Logan and Jessica that "It's my job... to freeze you!" Did we mention he's immune to blasts from Logan's gun?
    • Carrousel itself. It doesn't look so much as people happy to reach "renewal" as people trying to claw their way out - and then they explode to the cheers of the crowd. Later, Logan finds out that no one ever renews - then you realize that those people are dead, dead, dead.

The TV Series

The Book

  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Anyone who has played either of the first two BioShock games should find the description of Molly, the decaying city on the ocean floor, rather familiar.
