Just curious about everyone elses favorites.
For me is Close Encounters of the 3rd King and Independance Day.
F&S: everybody should have a piece of this thread, and thanks!
Being another old guy, there was maybe the black and white
granddaddy of them all... "The Day the Earth Stood Still", 1951.
The original one, rent it if you can find it.
Close to my heart, a fantasy [of maybe some kind] of warning
message that would make TPTB back off on the violence-- or
get melted like the processed cheese in a grilled wierdo. It
was completely cool what Gort could do to a tank.
Michael Rennie as Klaatu, Patricia Neal, Sam Jaffee as the
Professor, Hugh Marlowe as the boyfriend, me as the scared
stiff kid glued to NBC 'Monday Night at the Movies'. I had
nightmares of getting disinto'd for a whole week after that one.
Music by Bernard Herrman; as Orson W. said, "...A true genius."
Keanu, man, you're really good-- but you should let this one go.
And if TSHTF, and you catch a .45 ACP in the shoulder, the
visitor had this tube of Super Neo-Spooin' that closed her right UP.
Oh yeah, lately 'Taken'. It's a long series, but Spielberg did such a
good job with character development and plot I went and bought
Super scene: "Sure you don't want a cookie?" Inside joke for
those who saw and remember Joel Gretsch's line to Heather
Donohue slobbering on the floor crying. LMFAO. It's a surprise,
rent that one too if you can ever find it... a wonderful story.
