Re: [midatlanticretro] Re: OT: scifi movie poll
You would have to include
The Day the Earth Stood Still
in any list of top space-oriented sci-fi movies.
I realize they don't have the same sort of action and effects as
the Star Wars movies, but were both classics for their
time. (the 1950's)

Plan 9 From Outer Space is a cult classic. This is the movie that was SO BAD that director Ed Wood soon after its release killed himself. A few years ago it received the "Golden Turkey" award for being the worst scifi movie of all time ... which is why it's so good. The thing is, Wood never meant for Plan 9 to be a comedy .... it's just SO BAD that it's actually very funny. There is a whole web page devoted to mistakes in the editing and to the TERRIBLE dialogue. My favorite part is the scene in which you can actually see the string holding up a UFO model. And of course, it's "almost" starring Bela Lougosi .... who died during filming but still is in some scenes.
I highly recommend this movie.

(Oh wait ... Plan 9 was the WORST movie ... but it's damn funny!)
