    Classic! A Must Have On Blue Ray!

    I remember the first time I saw this in the theatres. I was in early high school, if I'm not mistaken. My dad took my brother & I to see it, and a real good friend of mine happened to be seeing it with his mom at the exact same time, so that was pretty cool...and I remember that we were all just blown away by this movie. This is definitely on my list of greatest sci fi movies every, along with a whole host of others! I just acquired this on blue ray pretty recently, and even though I still dont have a high def TV yet, even on a regular TV...this definitely looks better than my DVD version, which I actually sold after acquiring the blue ray. Sound wise, I don't think I've heard it even this good since I saw it in the theatre. My surround sound system isn't the most state of the art though, so it still wasn't quite theatre quality, but it still sounded pretty awesome. I am working toward acquiring a high def TV right now, and eventually maybe a better surround sound system...perhaps digital with a higher wattage...and then I'd be set! But yeah, this is definitely one of my favorite sci fi movies of all time, and among some of my first choices to upgrade to Blue Ray. If you've never seen this movie, (if you haven't...for shame), you should definitely see it, and for those of you like me upgrading to high def and all that, this is definitely a must own on blue ray...for sure! Go pick it up!

    Don't be a butt.

    Oh whatever, pull your head out of your butt. This movie was a un experience. It may not have been the brightest, but atleast it was fun. That's all I ask for when I go to the movies.

    On the "Love" end of this "Love/Hate" movie

    Special effects. Those two words alone were enough to attract the crowds to this very movie, full of high-powered action and thirlling suspense. This move alone made over $300 million in the box office, which puts it up there with some of the very best movies, and it won an Oscar to boot. Whether or not the acting and script was questionable is certainly debatable, considering I do agree the script could have used some work in all but one part (the speech President Whitmore gives before the climactic final stanza is the most perfect piece of dialogue I've ever heard in a movie, and I've heard George C. Scott's speech in "Patton.") Whether or not this movie tickled your fancy, you must give this movie its due. It is still one of the greatest movies in the past twenty years, and will always be one of the very best sci-fi flicks ever to hit the silver screen. I sincerely hope all you disbelievers and nay-sayers will hopefully learn to enjoy this movie, or kindly keep their scornful opinions down to constructive criticism.

    One of the best!

    The movie was thought provoking to those in this world who remain narrow minded. It was a great movie that erased the stereotype that a sci-fi must be wierd and twisted. The movie displayed a great combination of action, adventure, and also provided enough storyline backbone to support it. The characters were likable except for David's boss. The movie was believable. One of the best movies of all time.

    Great Movie, just get the facts right!

    This was a great movie! I own it in both VHS and DVD format because I love to watch it over and over. Only one problem... Reading the B&N Review they refer to Will Smith's Character as an Army Pilot. He was not. He was a United States Marine Corps Jet Pilot stationed at El Toro Air Station (now retired and being made into a shopping mall) Sorry guys... Get your facts right, it matters because the Army DOESN'T have fighter jet pilots like that. Their jets are TOTALLY different
