    Hi Kate!

    I like watching old sci-fi movies, although that kind of depends on how you define "old." I like the original Star Wars movies, but they are over 30 years old now! One "old" sci fi movie that I remember enjoying was the original "Andromeda Strain" movie from 1971. Some other really old sci-fi films I think are kind of fun are "Fantastic Voyage," "Flash Gordon" which has music by Queen, and Disney's "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea."

    Hi Kate,

    I too grew up watching Star Trek the Original Series (on Friday nights, "Wild Wild West" at 7:00 was followed by Star Trek at 8:00 p.m.). My favorite old movie though, is "The Day the Earth Stood Still". I also like "The Forbidden Planet", but I am also a Doctor Who fan. On my desk, I have two Daleks and a Cyberman that talks and one TARDIS USB-hub that lights up (and makes the TARDIS noise) when a USB drive is inserted.
