Same here! One of my all-time favs!
A great pic. It may be my all-time favorite film as well, definitely in the top ten for sci-fi. Folks tend to forget that this film created the model for sci-fi film franchises and product marketing as well. Not to mention the elements of pop culture that the film provided commentary on, from racism to creation vs. evolution. Great stuff.
agreed, guys. This movie is effective on many levels, and all the elements are perfect, from makeup to music to script and direction.
