Two things:

1st: David Webb Peoples wrote Soldier. He was trying to blend his two
genre's: The Western and Sci-fi. Peoples wrote the script for both Blade
Runner, and Unforgiven (among many others). I think to that end, the
makes for a very solid case of a 'Western in Space'. Many people I have
with have said they didn't like Soldier, but once they understood what
movie was supposed to be about changed their minds. Additionally,
Peoples has
said that he often envisioned the world of Soldier to be the future of
Runner. The production manager for Soldier was sold on that idea and
even scrap
built a Blade Runner cop car that is part of the junk pile. If you are
for it, it's not hard to miss.

2nd: I don't know why I'am thinking about this, but nobody has mentioned
Mine' on the Sci-fi movie list. Just thought I would throw it out there.
