Is there a movie that takes place in a completely different sound world?

I'm looking for movies with a sound design that changes all of the typical sounds of the world. Something like replacing all of the "normal" sounds with something strange, like doors closing would all sound like "pew!" or footsteps would all be "bloop" or something. Does this exist? [more inside]

In the year 4000...

I'm looking for good movies set in the future, especially the far future. Dystopian, post-apocalyptic or neither. Actually, especially neither, but no magic. I'm looking for interesting speculations on what happens by the year 2XXX, or 10,000, or whenever.

My affair with scifi is going through a rough patch

My visceral dislike of the movie District 9 combined with years of other sub par science fiction movies has pretty much killed any desire to see more films of the genre. Help me rekindle the flame. (Minor District 9spoilers inside) [more inside]

"Are you sure you want to answer this question, Dave?"

I'm looking for examples of sci fi films that focus primarily on a conflict/relationship between a human and a self-aware computer/artificial intelligence (such as HAL in "2001," but NOT the computer in "War Games" because it wasn't self-aware.) [more inside]

Information Retrieval

I'm looking for the title of a science fiction B movie which I saw very long ago for which I have only a fragmentary memory: a lab worker is covering a bell-jar like contrivance which is encaging two small, glowing and bobbing spheres of some un-nameable plasma (creatures...?!). She leaves the darkened room, and the guys working the baby spot - I mean, they escape, wending their eerie way around the eerily lit lab....and the memory ends. What film is it?
