    I recently picked up a CD of the Orson Welles broadcast. Man, that was great. The end gets a little cheezey, but the broadcast at the beginning of the invasion is fantastic.

    True story. They play it perfectly. I don't know if it's true, but I've read that people actually committed suicide because they were convinced that NJ was being invaded by Mars. :eek3:

    :werd: Can't really go wrong with Spielberg and Cruiser (Minority Report was alright).

    should be interesting visually at least, though I'm expecting some fairly decent acting out of cruise.

    Some movies are kind of "sacred" and more fun BECAUSE they're old. Spielberg is about the only one I'd trust to do it. Cruise is (almost) always good too.
    Not crazy about the idea of remaking Forbidden Planet etiher.

    ugh. I hope it turns out better than lost in space. though I couldn't stand forbidden planet at all.

    I love that movie! Classic, had to buy it. Very imaginative, huge scale of the alien machine etc is just cool. And of course Robby the Robot. :cool:

    I'm surprised they haven't remade Robinson Crusoe on Mars. Can't help but watch that one whenever it's on tv. A remake would probably ruin that one too. Classic sci fi is more entertaining left alone.

    I love classic sci-fi. though there are obscure remakes...

    H.G. Wells wrote a short story (I forget the name) about someone journeying to the bottom of the ocean and meeting intelligent beings.

    I believe it was James Cameron who later turned that short story into the well done film "The abyss"
