Forbidden Planet. It made me want to watch other old science fiction movies.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"

Those are so much fun, War of the Worlds is an old favorite.

Not quite a movie, but I had another set of the old Dark Shadows edisodes out from the lib yesterday. Some seriously spooky stuff with Dr. Hoffman being haunted to the point of madness, plus the first time travel episodes. Woohoo.
At home with a good book and the cat...

Saw Tron: Legacy with my daughter. Jeff Bridges is very god-like, with a goodly dash of Obi Wan Kenobi, as the withdrawn, bearded creator of "The Grid." The digital effects were so-so. The digitally created "young" Bridges fell into the "uncanny valley" where he was creepy, but they kept that to a minimum. Bruce Boxleitner just gets better and better looking!

2nd season DVD of "Scarecrow and Mrs King" out in March, woot! Of course the best seasons is #3 and #4 when they fall in love. Sigh! I've waited so long for this show on DVD, I just wish they'd put them out faster!

Watched an oldie but goodie, The Third Man. One of the best thrillers around, and don't blink during the last half-hour, you'll miss something.
