    I've seen it maybe a dozen times. Was a favorite around my house growing up. We still quote it. A bizarre movie, a complete knee jerk reaction movie to Watergate and conspiracy theories in general. Written and directed by the same guy who did the sequel to 2001: A Space Odyssey, if you've seen that. That chase scene is money, though. I think I read that one of the pilots who worked on it said it was the most dangerous movie he ever worked on. That is, before he was killed a few years later working on a movie. So... probably the second most dangerous.

    Yeah. I remember liking it. I think I remember one of, if not the final scene was the astronauts who were presumed dead walking in front of a TV crew. I think. Speaking of late 70s movies, ever see meteor with Sean Connery? The us and Russians during the Cold War working together to avert disaster. Lol

    No, never seen it. Sounds sort of amazing.

    Just looked up Meteor on Netflix. Some great actors in it. Brian Keith! Trevor Howard! Also, it estimates I'll give it less than two stars.

    Yeah, I'm sure it wasn't high quality. What did I know as a little kid though. Lol. Some of my favorite movies from that time frame that I remember seeing as a kid on cable or hbo in the early 80s were the black hole with Maximilian schell, the boys from brazil and force 10 from navarone with Harrison ford, Robert shaw and the great Barbara Bach who also starred in the awful Caveman with ringo starr

    Never seen Black Hole. The Boys from Brazil I only watched recently and it was just terrible. I only watched it because I'm a fan of James Mason. Force 10 from Navarone is a good movie, though it's sort of a typical British WWII movie in that there's a dumb American character (in this case, Ford). I was actually just watching a bit of that the other day. It's sort of a loose sequel to a movie from the 50s I think called The Guns of Navarone, which I haven't seen in, oh, 20 years. I seem to remember it was a better movie, though.

    Yeah. I haven't seen those movies since I was a kid. I'm sure if I saw any of them now my opinion would be vastly different than when I was 8. Lol.

    The movie Prisoners has been lauded by the critics so far but can Paul Dano play a character that doesn't creep you out?
