It's about time!

I was going to discuss the clock that serves as a tension builder throughout the last part of the movie - as it makes it's first appearance here:-

But ironically enough - I never had any time to do any line work yesterday and I was short of time today

Must try harder tomorrow

Who said time was a clock of the heart?!

Anyways - the use of the clock in Outland is a nice modern twist on the old clock tower in the town chiming high noon - but here the clock is digital and literally rattles off every second and is faded in and out relentlessly rattling along building up tension as the shuttle of doom arrives….

I wonder if the TV Show 24 took inspiration for its use of digital clocks from Outland? 

What do you think?
