    How can you say that? I used to go crazy how that stupid boy could be duped by that Mr Smith!

    I would have been very suspicious of a man who kept wandering off into the hills with a young boy, when Mom and the daughters were rather more attractive. That big camp robot would have been re-programmed to vaporise him instantly!

    It was an ok interpretation as the original Irwin Allen production was pretty awful for an adult viewer in those days in most respects.

    The problem with the remake of iconic children's TV series like that is that you are no longer the child that loved the original series you grew up and the magic and suspension of disbelief is gone.

    Bill Mumy went on to play the wonderful character Lennier in Babylon 5 in the 1990s.

    The question in the thread is another very open ended one, I can only give two absolute favourites although I would likely not watch either particularly often now.

    2001 A Space Odyssey
    Contact

    I have others but I would have to think very hard to bring them to the top of my mind.

    edit:

    The Fifth Element just for the sheer fun of it, intense, funny, driven, action sci-fi nonsense at its best, a masterpiece by Luc Besson, with a wonderful score.

    Rope & Dial M for murder - I love the intelligent screenplay and effortless acting.

    Long Good Friday - best ever Brit gangster film.

    Goodfellas - could watch it every week. Sublime.

    The Longest Day - I do like WW2 movies.
    633 Squadron - see above.

    The Day The Earth Stood Still
    The Thing (the B&W original although the Kurt Russell remake ain't bad)

    Life of Brian - amazing film.
    Blazing Saddles - Mel's finest.

    A Matter of Life and Death
    In Which We Serve

    I could go on......

    Hated it the first time I saw it but love it now.

    I actually wanted it in my top 5, but couldn't decide which to delete, and then didn't bother.

    Life of Brian.
    Goodfellas
    The Italian Job 1969
    The Man Who Would Be King
    Shawshank Redemption

    The Green Mile was a bit good too, and The Shining if I ever need to look at the back of my settee.
