    Best scene for me was Dreyfuss in the car and the spaceship going over his head.

    Children Of Men
    Is my favourite 21st Century SCi fi. film.
     
  8. Starting to like you more and more.


    Conquest was always my favorite Apes film. Even as a 12 year old I had a gut feeling it was futzed with and soon after seeing it I found out it was. The 2008 bluray was close to the original cut shown at Phoenix Arizona preview but still wanting.
    The series as I post adnausem needs and had a new 2k 4k (hdr? )(sound mix? ) remastering so to put this series to bed once and for all.
    Disney shows an interest in the new continuing Apes saga so how about doing a " 2001 "like 4k release of apes. Yeah they only care about streaming? The new 4k hdr remasters of classic films look great and the Apes films from what I heard look wonderful since they were done a year or two ago. Thanks, John M.

    Don’t know if you like LOST tv series, but composer Michael Ginacchino (who did latest Apes score) has Ape like musical elements in his LOST score no doubt derived from Jerry Goldsmith orig version.

    I'm delighted that several posters have already mentioned CE3K, which is my all-time favorite, although I like the original release better than the Director's Cut or whatever it was called..........

    Directors cut?
    Dreyfuss’s character enters alien spacecraft you see more inside ship.
     
  17. It sometimes gets tricky deciding what's sci-fi vs. horror but here's a few of mine:

    2001
    Invasion of the Body Snatchers
    Forbidden Planet
    Quatermas and the Pit
    Planet of the Apes and Beneath the Planet of the Apes
    Godzilla (1954), although I could list several from the Toho franchise
    The Incredible Shrinking Man
    The Last Man On Earth (1964)
    Day of the Triffids

    I'm sure I'll think of others as soon as I hit 'post reply'.

    Of those, thinking 2001 gets the nod.
