|05:50 pm - Seeking movie recs for a possible fic|
I keep coming up with all these fic ideas, even though I have no time to write them. Someday I'll post them for your amusement.
I need a movie to mention in a Sentinel fic. It should contain a character or a plot that Blair might use to show Jim an example of what a Sentinel might look like in real life, or to demonstrate to Jim things he thinks Jim will be able to do with some practice.
It should also have been released before 1996.
Daredevil and Unbreakable are too late, and I'd rather not use Smilla's Sense of Snow, because dashamte used it already in a similar way.
It can be really obscure, if you like, because I think Blair would always be on the lookout for stuff like this. Foreign films, too, please.
Current Mood: curious
is a very
Sentinel-y story, with the hero being blinded in Vietnam, and being taught by a village elder to use his other senses to compensate. It's an action flick, with swords and bad guys and silly stuff like that, but it's one of my favourite films. Doesn't hurt that it stars Rutger Hauer, though actually it was this film that got me interested in him, even though I'd seen him before, in things such as Bladerunner.

I see this is based on a Japanese film (goody, stuff Blair can ramble about, but he'd totally show Jim this version)--sounds about like what I need! I'll Netflix it and see. :-)
Thank you muchly!
