What do you think of "Blade Runner"? (by the way Google AI automatically added "Runner" for me) It is one of my favorite films. The music is excellent. The mood is perfect. Sean Young is perfectly cast. The director's cut though was a disappointment. The original is superior. How can you possibly not have mentioned "2001: A Space Odyssey"? Thank you for mentioning "Forbidden Planet" I also am quite fond of it and am hoping for a modern telling of it. The unseen being still frightens me. Maybe its the accompanying music. What about "Robocop" another fine film IMHO. The first installment of "Star Ship Troopers" wasn't too bad. Older films I find to be a bit too slow moving for my tastes. There are always boring scenes that do not hold my attention. "Contact" wasn't too bad either. A good ending. "Close Encounters" The modern list goes on. You are begging the question "What makes a good science fiction story?" Entertaining but that is a matter of personal preference. Good solid science of course w/ reasonable extrapolations. Which is why I could not tolerate "Interstellar". No logical inconsistencies. "Gravity" was a thrill to watch most of the time. How she knew to operate a Chinse vessel I am not too happy about. I also do not care how the characters "feel". When I watch Star Trek episodes I am interested in how they solve their problems hopefully in the most logical manner. Kind Regards - Cheerio
