The Day the Earth Stood Still
Klaatu barada nikto!

I was only four when this first came out, so I probably didn't see it right away. Still... it's among my oldest memories of movies... along with "Forbidden Planet", so that probably means something...

I've probably watched it ten times.

About as many times as I've wished for Klaatu to return with Gort who could with his disintegrator ray demolish all the guns on Earth.

I have a custom made coffee cup with, "klaatu barada nikto" on it.

I definitely have to get one of those!

I collect coffee cups and my most recent one says MUG on one side and has the DHARMA initiative logo (from Lost) on the other.

Message me and I'll have my sister print another and send it to you. I want a new one printed for me anyway.

The remake with Keanu Reeves is pretty good as well.

Going back to my teens the first relatively decent SciFi movies back then were Forbidden Planet and The Day the Earth Stood Still, and they were just preceded by When Worlds Collide.   These days, notwithstanding the lofty reputation of the Star Wars Series, my favourite Sci-Fi movie is still the original Dune, based on my still favourite Sci-Fi novel, Frank Herbert's Dune.  I've seen the recent Dune Part 1 remake, and it hasn't changed my mind.

My favorite science fiction movie is Minority Report, not so much for the plot, although that is interesting, but for the amazing way Steven Spielberg imagined the future.

Spielberg is always good. Even his "bad" movies are good.
