Another problem with Alien--other than being the story of a scantily clad woman being chased by a slavering toothed phallus: Compare the alien spaceship with the ship on Planet of Vampires (great B movie!) It's the same thing! Then there's the comparison to It! and to the Voyage of the Space Beagle (A.E. Van Vogt) and it really isn't very original. I like the Geiger styles, though.
The Quatermass trilogy is very good--I remember it being better when I'd watch it on a snowy black and white TV at 1:00am, than on a crisp LCD widescreen. Still good, though.
I'm sticking with 2001, Forbidden Planet, & Brazil. (I need to watch 12 Monkeys again--I remember it being very good.)
