Anything by Spielberg, Lucas, Eastwood, and the guy who did 2001( can’t remember his name right off) and ALL 50’s sci-fI classics. “Earth meets the flying saucers” is one of my favorites. Also “The day the the Earth stood still” (klatoo Barada Nicto) and the original “Thing”. Nothing beats the theramin for sound.

Stanley Kubrick. grin I could barely watch the 1950’s The Thing… But I really liked the John Carpenter one.

Take care,

I like Spielberg’s “Amistad” and “The Schindler’s List,” (see?, I am neither Nazi nor a racist) but I despise everything else he has done.

4. Raiders of the Lost Ark
5. The Forbidden Kingdom
6. Terminator 1
7. Pulp Fiction
8. The Blues Brothers
9. Ghost Busters 1
10. Memphis Belle

(There are so many more…)

Take care,

Derek

Yea, that’s the guy. Also liked 2010. John Carpenter’s remake was ok but he relied on computer graphics for the monster scenes. Still can’t beat Jim Arness for shocking scenes, especially after they set him on fire.

Just went through the lists of all the films and recognize many I would rate highly.  My daugher recently turned me on to one I had never heard of before, and I would rank it as extremely high on my list:  V for Vendetta.

Anyone who doesn’t like “Pinky and the brain” and the movie classic “Batteries not Included” must be a racist and a nazi! cheese

Spielberg classics? Just kidding George, you probably haven’t heard of “Batteries” it was a cute movie about little aliens and very forgettable and “Pinky” was a cartoon about a genius mouse who plotted to take over the world. It was really a cool cartoon. Ask your kids, they may know it. God, these parodies are entirely lost on you!

Traveler, just in case your looking for more bizarre pleasure-fest films like Crash, you can check out check out the Secretary. That movie also has David Spader in it. That is, if thats your kind of movie…

`
Yes!  *clapping hands*  (it’s actually just ‘Secretary’).  Maggie Gyllenhaal are James Spader are wonderful in it :)

The Abyss ** Special Edition **  Not the theatre version.

I am amazed how rarely this movie is mentioned.

I don’t like weird looking aliens. Actually, I have yet to see a movie with a believably looking alien—whatever that may look like. But hey, just like Steve Jobs used to say, I don’t know what I want until I see it. None of the Hollywood aliens ever came close to that.

Read the comic.  It’s considerably different and better.
