I was completely floored by quality of movie atmosphere and yeah, this is true [retro-future-cyberpunk show]
of the 80s, without any strained interpretations.
Pumping soundtrack, marvelous neon illumination with dramatic light beams, excellent design rise quality of the picture to the point where we can safely say “this is classic!”. Glorious CRT monitors, bulky industrial keyboards, cool computer graphics made on fancy new [Amiga]
computers. FILM WAS AVAILABLE IN SUPERB 30 FPS [EAT THIS!

If you like pixel art quests and [cyberpunk]
atmosphere here is a good suggestion: [Technobabylon]
. Game is published by Wadjet Eye Games previously known for brilliant [Gemini Rue]
. In brief: detailed dialogue lines, immersive atmosphere, cool design aesthetics.
Music composer is Nathan Allen Pinard, who is also known for immersive soundtrack for Gemini Rue. So you won’t be disappointed in terms of musical vibes. I think that 50% of game’s atmospere comes from music.
is the best soviet Sci-Fi movie produced by [Andei Tarkovsky]
. It often counts as direct answer to beautiful and timeless [2001: A Space Odyssey]
by [Stanley Kubrick]
. Although Solaris had far less budget it surely provides plenty of food to the grey matter. Moreover, movie goes even deeper in philosophical aspects than Space Odyssey. So, the film is for those of you who like to think things over.
is a cult 3D shooter developed by EpicMegaGames back in the 1998. Game unfairly received much less attention comparing to well-known Half-life, despite: more beautiful computer graphics, more atmospheric soundtrack and better overall design. One of the first games to implement 32-bit color and complex illumination.
Reason: game was more demanding on system resources. Pentium II with at least 128Mb of ram and powerful GFX accelerator were mandatory requirements.
[Planet Earth I]
and [Planet Earth II]
are probably the best documentary series about diverse wildlife on Earth. Make sure to watch them in high-res!

of vintage black and white [Outer Limits]
of the 60s. Most of series are junk, but beware that in rare cases GEMS can be found. Anyways, serial is recommended for those who would like to experience 90s aesthetics like early CGI graphics, CRT monitors, pagers and "shiny new" cellphones. INTRO WARNING: 7TH SEASON IS A COMPLETE ABOMINATION!

I have pretty strong nostalgia regarding vintage light effects.
Vibrant blast of light beams: such scheme was very common during 80s days.
I don’t understand why movie industry almost abandoned it in favor of generic non-atmospheric CGI illumination. Just check these light rays out!

Is it a detective? Horror? Comedy? Melodrama? Or psychedelic art-house?
Giving glance onto [Twin Peaks]
we can quickly discover that movie demonstrates not only serious detective elements, unserious humor, melodramatic notes but scary horror vibes at the same time. How could it be?
Film forces watcher to experience controversial states of mind in a short amount of time and it surely features some kind of psychedelic vibes among the frames.
Previoulsy i already mentioned [some Fallout related stuff]
. But today i’ve decided to rework post in a more comprehensive way, just to be sure that i squeezed all possible information from Fallout universe. FALLOUT GAMES
