#16788 what is your favourite sci-fi movie ?

Posted by Cynyyd on 06 August 2012 - 02:14 PM in Sci Fi

I like:
Star Wars (4,5,6)
Alien, Aliens

I used to like Dune but have not seen that in years and I get the feeling it would be lame now.

I would buy a spool of wire, wind it and then watch tv while I cut links and fitted everything together. I don't have the time nor the patience for something like that these days though.

I LARPed years ago and was also in the SCA,which I ended liking more than LARP as it was focused on the middle ages rather than fantasy. I always found spell casters to just be annoying, running around throwing spell balls instead of standing toe to toe. The SCA does not use padded weapons though so takes a bit of money to get into since you need heavy enough armor to withstand rattan swords.
I made chain mail as well, used wooden dowels inside the chuck of a drill and used the drill to wrap the wire around the dowel. I used bolt cutters to cut the links and two sets of pliers to put them together.I had a coif, gauntlets and hauberk, stuff was crazy heavy and took hours and hours to make :)
