    Anywya, I saw Oblivion (2013) recently, and thumbs-up to that one.
    To my mind essential/favorite is all the same
    Kubrick's Apollo 11? Whats that?
    Rollerball is in my top 5 SF films of the 70s. THX1138 was too sterile to be a favorite for me but thats the feeling it was going for.The original The Blob would always be my choice because Steve McQueen rules

    Something the voices in his head tell him about.

    Sterile is a good word for THX. One of the things that took me out of the movie is when Duvall destroys the robot guard with such ease. Considering he and the woman are constantly scared and hiding through out the latter half of the movie from one or two of these robots at the most, the fact that they could be broken so easily made it seem silly that they considered the patroling robots such obstacles. But we all have flaws.
    Yeah I'm not familiar with Apollo 11 either.

    Apollo 11 is not a movie, is the mission designation of the NASA flight that landed on the moon. Inferno is among the conspiracy theorists who believe the moonlanding was faked, done on a Hollywood sound stage and Kubrick is often linked with that ocnspiracy as being the creator of the film we saw as the moon landing televised on television.

    Hence Slam's comment.

    Definitely.














    Oh ... Inferno?

    Him too, I guess.
    I tend to split superhero comics fans into "People who like Krypto" and "People who don't like Krypto."
    Basically, if you miss the wonder of a dog flying around in a little Superman cape, you're in the wrong hobby.

    No sir, I would never mess around with a two-fisted Detective Comic backup feature. Not with Siegel and Shuster as parents. But then again,he was knocked out by Roy Raymond,TV Detective in a stunning upset
