My all time favorite (as far as I can remember) is The Andromeda Strain, although the book was much better(when isn't it?). Anyone else have some faves?

In the vein of old movies Fantastic Voyage wasn't bad.

Modern Sci fi though:

2001: A Space Odyssey, Alien, Aliens, the original Star Wars trilogy, and I kind of liked the Cube as well, lowish budget, but it made up for it with a really intriguing plot, and last but by no means least Blade Runner.

Eh, as far as that goes, I've always prefer "Half Baked." Thats more of an environmental science film though.

And what is it that I am all about? Hiding behind a forum name and bashing other people? A little sensitive aren't we Marlon?

Took me a while to see it :tongue:

Is it true that there has been a book published that tries to say that everything in start wars is possible and not all made up? I heard about something along these lines, and I do not mean this to the extent of red/black men with horns walking around in robes and a light saber :devil:

I like your username too. And that isn't meant to carry any ulterior motive, nor do I think Marlon's question did. And yeah why the name? As good as it is? :smile:

It's actually sort of funny. My name gets the same response of suspicion of some sort on this site as it did a while ago when I joined a forum for a popular talk radio show. The funny part is that the users on that site where predominately twenty something nincompoops who spend all day talking about a couple shock jocks, while you guys are mostly graduate level physics majors, professionals, or at the minimum, at least pretty intelligent human beings.

Yes, it stands for undercover brother! Ya got me! It's just something I used once on AIM a long time ago after watching the move "Under Cover Brother" (another great science film) and I just kept on using it on everything because its easier to remember.

Anymore questions?

I knew it "under cover brother". So, who's hiding behind a forum name now, huh ?

This pretty much proves my point...

That statement was directed more towards your accusation of me being on some other forum.

Successful actresses with an unknown mild mannered alias where they spend most of their free time washing dishes for a lower middle class white trash man in a trailer?

Actually NO, you started saying that in your FIRST remark to my first post to you. Reread the thread man.
Alright Alright, whatever. I don't care that much.

SIGHS, nonono

here's another hint:

Listen, about last summer, she was 18 and most definetly willing.

Either that or I remind you of Freddie Prince Jr. :blushing:
