Philip K. Dick

Mini biography
Philip Kindred Dick was born in Chicago in December 1928, along with a twin sister, Jane. Jane died less than eight weeks later, allegedly from an allergy to mother's milk. Dick's parents split up during his childhood, and he moved with his mother to Berkeley, California, where he lived for most of the rest of his life. Dick became a published author in 1952 (his first sale: the short story "Roog"). His first novel, Solar Lottery, appeared in 1955. Dick produced an astonishing amount of material during the fifites and sixties, writing and selling nearly a hundred short stories and some two dozen or so novels during this period, including "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?", "Time Out Of Joint", "The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch" and the Hugo-award winning "The Man In The High Castle." A supremely chaotic personal life (Dick was married five times) along with drug experimentation sidetracked Dick's career in the early seventies. Dick would later maintain that reports of his drug use had been greatly exaggerated by sensationalistic colleagues. In any event, after a layoff of several years, Dick returned to action in 1974 with the Campbell award-winning novel "Flow My Tears, The Policeman Said". Perhaps more importantly, though, this same year Dick would have a profound religious experience that would forever alter his life. Dick's final years were haunted by what he alleged to be a 1974 visitation from God...or at least a God-like being. Dick spent the rest of his life writing copious journals regarding the visitation, and his interpretations of the event. At times Dick seemed to regard it as a divine revelation; at other times, he believed it to be a sign of extreme schizophrenic behaviour. His final novels all deal in some way with the entity he saw in 1974, especially "Valis", in which the title character is an extraterretrial God-like machine that chooses to make contact with a hopelessly schizophrenic, possibly drug-addled and decidedly mixed-up science fiction writer named Philip K. Dick. Despite his award-winning novels, and almost universal acclaim from within the science fiction community, Dick was never especially financially successful as a writer. He worked mainly for low-paying science fiction publishers, and never seemed to see any royalties from his novels after the advance had been paid, no matter how many copies they sold. In fact, one of the reasons for his extreme productivity was that he always seemed to need the advance money from his next story or novel in order to make ends meet. But towards the very end of his life, he achieved a measure of financial stability, partly due to the money he received from the producers of "Blade Runner" for the rights to his novel "Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?", upon which the film was based. Shortly before the film was to premiere, however, Dick died of a heart attack at the age of 53. Since his death, several other films have been adapted from his works (incuding "Total Recall"), and several unpublished novels have been published posthumously.

Col. Hendricksson (Peter Weller) is commander of a handful of Alliance soldiers still alive on Sirius 6B. Betrayed by his own political leaders and disgusted by the atrocities of this never-ending war, Hendricksson decides he must negotiate a separate peace with the New Economic Bloc's decimated forces. But to do so, he will have to cross a treacherous wasteland where the deadliest threat comes from the very weapons he helped to create.

nice collection :D

shame about some of the content though....i mean from classics such as recall and blade runner to absolute garbage in minority report and screamers :P but we can't blame Mr Dick for that i guess it's the movie men to blame for those :mrgreen:
I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

Whats up with Uma Thurmans hair in Paycheck? She looks like a balding viking or something. Really annoyed me along with Ben Afflecks complete lack of charisma.

-And don't forget Next (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0435705/), great movie with Nicolas Cage.

-and also a Greek movie called Proini peripolos (aka Morning Patrol - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0093791/), I found on torrent but it stopped at 86%, so if someone has it, share it please!

-there is also a sequel to Screamers, called Screamers: The Hunting, ofcourse it's not that good as the first one, but it's watchable.

-Total Recall has also a series called Total Recall 2070, I have it somewhere, but didn't watch it completely.

-Yes, damn I've looked so hard to find this movie and I didn't found it.... although I think it's huge crap but that makes my collection incomplete

-If you are a huge fan, go watch Philip K Dick: A Day in the Afterlife, great docu on his life!

-Does anyone have Your Name Here (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0837802/)? Didn't saw it yet, so you'd make me really happy with this one.


I have read somewhere there will be a Total Recall remake, I hope it was a bad joke.
