  1. Alien 1979 A distress call awakens the crew of a space tug who investigate and find an alien ship filled with eggs. One of these hatches and attaches itself to one of the crew who brings it back on board the ship. In one of the most shocking scenes in Sci Fi a baby alien emerges from the crewman and hides in the ship prompting the rest of the crew to hunt it and try to kill it. This is another Ridley Scott film and again is highly influential. The design of the creature is something else. And even after repeat viewings it still scares the life out of me. It put Sigourney Weaver on the radar. Also starred Yaphet Kotto, Ian Holm, John Hurt, Veronica Cartwright, Harry Dean Stanton and Tom Skerritt
  2. Blade Runner 1982 Available in several different versions, this is the story of several replicants (bio-engineered humans) who have come back to Earth. Replicants are used in off world colonies and are not allowed on Earth. Blade Runners 'retire' i.e. kill them. A burnt out Blade Runner called Deckard is brought in to find and kill 4 replicants after one killed a Blade Runner who was running an emotional test on him. The Replicants have a limited life span and are looking at ways to extend it. Deckard runs an emotional test on an assistant to the Tyrell Corporation who manufactures the Replicants and finds out she is a Replicant but it took longer to work it out as she has been given memories. A deadly game of cat and mouse then takes pace between the Replicants and the Blade Runner. Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Daryl Hannah. Edward James Olmos and Sean Young star in this Ridley Scott film which heavily influenced Sci Fi with its dark rainy streets. And the memorable dialogue 'Wake up ! Time to Die' plus 'I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in rain... Time to die.'
  3. SCOOPED ! And what is more Bazza gave a like to me posting it.

  5. Dracula 1958 This is the Hammer Films version of the Dracula story and stars two men who became stalwarts of the company, Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing as Dracula and Van Helsing respectively. Lee is hypnotic as the vampire and the film contains one of the best climaxes of the series or arguably any of the Hammer films as Van Helsing runs the length of a table and rips open the curtains to let sun into a room where he is battling Dracula. He then forces Dracula into sunlight turning him to ash.
  6. Oh No ! Another poster has changed the wording underneath their username ! Will this madness ever end ? And what was wrong exactly with educating Asian mallards ?
  7. Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines 1965 This is a period comedy wherein a competition is announced to fly from London to Paris in 1910 which attracts a worldwide entry field. There is an amount of playing to national stereotypes with the Germans (Prussians) being by the book and the French being amorous for example. In the latter case this degenerates into a duel between the French and Germans using balloons and blunderbusses. Terry Thomas plays an unscrupulous cheat who tries to win by sabotaging his rivals. Benny Hill appears as the fire chief at the English base trying to safeguard the planes. A love triangle develops between the American flyer,. the other English flyer and the daughter of the promoter. The planes are all pre WW1 designs which adds charm to the proceedings. And the film has a happy ending due to an act of heroism by one of the pilots that is recognised and applauded by the race winner.
  8. The Wild Bunch 1969 An aging outlaw gang is ambushed when carrying out a robbery and escape with a decoy loot. The gang go to work for a Mexican general while being hunted by an ex member of the gang and the posse who ambushed them earlier. The film ends in a bloody shoot out. Notable for its portrayal of violence as the gun battles takes place in slow motion. This is one of director Sam Peckinpah's finest works. Stars William Holden, Ernest Borgnine and Robert Ryan.
  9. Gneisenau From Germany comes Gneisenau who is a fast moving energy projector that can pack a devastating punch of an attack. She is a good swimmer and can use her abilities in water but she cannot fly. She can take a fair bit of punishment but certain attacks will drain or take her down rapidly.
  10. The jury is out on Enterprise. Aircraft carrier ? Yes. Battleship ? Hm And Captain Kirk's ship was no Battleship although it was a ship that could battle
