    Good news Matt, Forbidden Planet is an adaptation of Shakespeare’s The Tempest, so you can up your exposure to the bard and check off a classic sci-fi blind spot at the same time.

  2. Ben! You’ve never read “Lord of the Flies”?!? Excited to hear what you think of it. I bet you’ll think it’s better than 3.5 stars. Fantastic book. Not an upper, but fantastic all the same. (Less convinced you’ll like “It’s a Wonderful Life,” though after you do, I recommend you seek out the “lost ending” SNL presented in 1986 when William Shatner hosted the episode… Funny stuff!)

    Matt, I found “Out of the Silent Planet” pretty disappointing, too. Good for you for giving the rest of the trilogy a high – I still haven’t. I hope you’ll like “Metropolis” – I thought it was still pretty compelling when I watched it about a decade ago.

    I love the foreign film suggestions. More for my Netflix queue! Thanks for helping me broaden my horizons.

    PS. I was glad to hear Ben say “when” we get to episode 550 🙂

    Hey Mike- War of the Arrows is a good foreign film on Netflix. I keep hearing good things about 2015’s The Assassin also, and plan to see it soon.

    Ben- If you saw The Raid: Redemption and enjoyed it, I think you”l like Dredd.

    Matt- I think you and the wife will be pleasantly surprised by Warm Bodies, it was so much better than I hoped for. It has some deep things to ponder about identity, redemption, re-birth, and relationships of all kinds- and funny, too!

    • Thanks for the recommendation, Philip – added to my queue!
