Looking forward to the new one- if they ever finish it.
Then the Star Wars, Star Trek, Guardians of the Galaxy and assorted Marvel movies are in....
I don't really care. I'm just busting chops.

One of the most disappointing experiences I've ever had coming out of a movie. Spielberg, Cruise and a beloved sci fi property? I thought it was going to be an all time great cinematic experience. Not so much.

I honestly don't think I've seen it since 1996, does it hold up? I remember bits and pieces from it though, the boxer that just starts pummeling the aliens, and what ultimately destroys them
If it's the same movie I am thinking about, that boxer was Jim Brown. Wasn't it really deep country music that killed them? lol

So many good candidates but I choose Alien because it is one of the few movies that literally had me on the edge of my seat for almost the entire movie.

I was going to go with Earth Girls Are Easy, but someone beat me to it.

So my second pick: The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai, Across the Eighth Dimension

I thought it was fantastic. The futility of trying to fight a superior being with basic technology, great cinematic depiction of suspense, and just enough nods to its predecessors without being hokey.

Favorite Allen movie? I have to go with He Got Game I guess. Although that tennis one with ScarJo was pretty good that Allen directed.

Agree with this, has popped up every other day on HBO lately, mindless re-watch.

Also really enjoyed Cloverfield the first time through, not so much on re-watches, and the 2nd one was not even worth a view for me.

So many great movies mentioned. I’ll add Forbidden Planet and Day of The Triffids.

In the not the same category Stranger Things was an excellent series especially season one.

I loved "Forbidden Planet" as a kid growing up.

............and a couple I don't think anyone mentioned yet, both from 1964...........

First Men on the Moon

Robinson Crusoe on Mars

Not sure if either would make my top ten list but I recall both being great flicks.
