Cannot believe how cool this is

Fantastic and brilliantly executed blend of science fiction, mindbending, martial arts, philosophy, violent action and special effects.

Redefining

I am going to rate it sky high for redefining (space)horror, design and science fiction in general. It is iconic, but I have to admit anno 2021 it is actually, finally, starting showing signs of aging. My son wasn't too impressed nor terrified. Some of that is a legacy from our memories.

Armed conflict can infect us all

I saw this movie half a century ago and it is still impressive even without the usual mass scenes and shoot-outs. Make sure you watch the original version by director Wicki and not the later re-make with the same title.

Perfect movie for a sentimental mood

Obviously this movie is a classic according to 95% of the world population, but until today I never seemed to be in the right mood to actually start watching it. The first minutes it felt somewhat dated, but soon I was fully drawn into the story. Overall an immersive experience, a classic indeed!

A Pixar Pinnacle

Only Pixar could have made a crazy, highly original story like this work so beautifully. It makes fun of the elderly yet respects them at the same time, it looks great and it features splendid music. A truly heartfelt gem and unique adventure.

One of the best Pixarmovies

One of the best Pixar movies ever, rightfully praised for having almost no conversation and being about droids, yet still being a deeply touching, funny and engrossing. It is also dares to be a bit dark and cynical without ruining the mood. Brilliant.

A truly fantastic, or should I say perfect, animation

I recently saw this again and it struck me how perfect this movie is. The graphics, jokes, depth, tension, acting, action, folklore, story, wisdom, artwork, characters, music and flow are all amazing. It's all incredibly well balanced and doesn't overdo or patronize anything.

Horror redefined

More than the great acting, masterful built-up, gruesome imagery and deep, lasting sensation of dread, I guess it is more important to point out that this movie makes most other horrors seem like bland, generic, jump scare crap. This is unique, fresh and it still haunts me to this day.

A great action-packed movie

Lots of action, space ships and great visuals, which just happen to take place in the Star Trek universe (but nevertheless also highly accessible to non-trekkies)

Darkness on the light side

A colorful, beautiful and exciting space adventure that is also quite funny at times.
