Me too! the Aliens are unadulterated shits!
I love Mars Attacks!!! One of the top movies ever.
I liked the old The Day the Earth Stood Still 1951 version, i remember being fascinated seeing it as a kid. (although it could have been The Day the Earth Stopped?)I caught it on late night TV recently and still think it was way ahead of its time, like a lot of the old British Sci Fi films.
Metropolis --amazing classic
Dr Who is my favorite Sci Fi series. I have seen all Dr Who's, some several times.
Is Buffy the Vampire Slayer Sci Fi?
The Rodenbury Star-Treks (and even the latest big screen version, I think, Rocdenbury would like.). It was so nice to think his ashes (and his wife's?) are in space as I watched this.
The recent one terrible /good chyrstal Chevy chase?
ET was great--When are Yanks going to give the man an Oscar?
*batteries not included another delightful Spielberg.-also his one about hatching out modern dinosaurs -who's name escapes me at the moment 12 AM!
The Terminators (just scrapes in)
I haven't seen Dune. I loved the first book but thought the second was rubbish.
Star wars of course, the movie I had spent my life waiting for. I will still never forget the opening minute when that huge Starship filled the screen.
Men In Black (both)- fun romps.
Godzilla-one of the funniest movies ever. Perhaps the Yanks don't get it or I had too many pills that night. I still remember the amazement of the French SS agent, disguising his soldiers as Yanks by giving them gum to chew. The amazement of the Hero to the mass-weaponry the French had gathered on USA soil explained by the offhand "But you can buy anything in America!" . The French agent's contiuing futile attempt to find a decent cup of coffee, or his reaction to donuts
The Island of Dr. Moreau 197? incredibly perspicacious.
The Boys from Brazil chilling
The Fly ?
Back to the Future 1 One is mildly amusing but the theme gets tiresome. Michael J. Fox's enthusiasm saves it.
Godzilla vs. Mothra Well you need to have seen some of Takao Okawara's versions to enjoy the modern one.
Godzilla Meets Bambi -very short
I wasn't allowed to see The Blob when I was a little boy. I stayed up late one night recently to watch it. Terrible!
Same with Creature of the Black Lagoon, although that was tolerable.
Ones I dislike
The ones I hate and resent them steeling a few hours from my life.
All Aliens ("Lets split up and go down these poorly lit starship hallways again--(and get eaten by an Alien!?)? Very bad.
Stormship Troopers- crap
I don't do, Yank "end of the world" disaster films, or bad remakes like War of the Worlds
There is still a lot I haven't seen. Hanging out for Torchwood and whatever Josh Wheeldon does next. His 'Cowboys in space' thing was tolerable but only because no-one is doing anything better.
