    I'm willing to bet that we can accomplish this easily before/by our 10th anniversary BBQ next Saturday! Take that FFUK!

    I know exactly what you mean :(

    Shame, really, since this was, until the sequels, my 3rd favorite movie.

    I'd put in the top 20 at least. On my list it's at about 16, between Wall*e and Close Encounters.

    A great animated feature, very similar to E.T. but E.T. is definitely better imho.

    I've often wondered if the lack of an impending Soviet nuclear threat is reponsible for many changes in what is and isn't popular in the Sci-Fi/Speculative Near Future genre.

    GAH! BEST. BROOKS. FILM. EVAR.


    I'm not sure Young Frankenstein would be on my Sci-Fi list, but it would be at the top of my comedy list.

    Way to go everyone! Just remember, it isn't enough to just beat the FFUKers, we have to keep posting to stay on top of them!

    I don't think that will be a problem. They have slowed down big time in their posting.

    41 to go.

    This sounds quite naughty. From beating to being on top of them, it sounds like FFUK is quite our bi#@&.

    I do enjoy watching the movie. It is a visual feast. I even enjoy the faster moving ships, although I did like the submarine/capital ship slowness (feeling of mass) of the original movies. But between the major plot holes and the OVER USE OF FRAKKING LENS FLARES!!!!, there is no way that it can beat Khan.

    I love this one as a standalone movie. The problem is... there isn't enough mind-bleach on the planet to wash away the sequels. It had so much promise... and failed so badly. Although the 2nd one did have Sophie Marceau, and the awesome fight scene on the highway. [face_hypnotized]

    So I watched this tonight. Kubrick ... and most of the cast & crew must have done a lot of hits of acid while making this one. I didn't particularly enjoy the movie, but it had some parts to bake the brain pan. The reprogramming part was interesting... in a creepy sort of way.

    But I'm not a Kubrick fan, other than Full Metal Jacket. This one was too drugged out whacko for me. Definitely not a top 50, let alone top 100 for me.

    I'll agree with you there. it does have replayability, and is a good reboot. I did enjoy the scenes with Kirk at the beginning. I just have a really, really tough time imagining him getting promoted from cadet-in-disgrace to full Starship Captain.... I think it could have been interesting to see him as a junior officer or a department head, doing away team missions under a mentor.

    LOL, yeah, I can't watch Short Curcuit again, but I have re-watched TLS many, many times.

    Speaking of dystopian futures, I also watched the Omega Man, with Charlton Heston. Not a bad flick... didn't Will Smith do a remake/reboot of this? Typical last man on Earth story.... and I'm sure for the time it was a good movie. What totally ruined it for me was 1) the hysterically bad make-up and costumes for the "family"... the pseudo zombies.... and 2) the soundtrack. I understand that it would have bad 70-s era wakka-wakka music, but what killed it is that when he was in a life-or-death situation, the music had zero... as in none, nada, zich... NO tension in it. It was upbeat, happy and ruined any sense of drama. I never felt that he was in danger.

    Soundtrack should create drama in those scenes, not make you want to dance with unicorns and afro-ed faeries.
