  1. Hopefully I get to find out whether Adam was the one who kludged the Hasselblad viewfinder onto the hand scanner prop.

  2. I think this is one of the first movies where they built the set of the bridge on a gimble to lean and shake during battle scenes using hydraulics

  3. Totally Unauthorized Commentary suggestions… (A thru H)

    Batman (original Tim Burton film)

    Time Bandits

    Contact

    Demolition Man

    Dune

    Excalibur

    Hellboy

    Hitchiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

  4. One of my all time favorite movies. The casting of this movie is so perfect and everyone is spot on. Whoever wrote the line “Let’s get out of here before one of those things kills Guy” deserves an award.

  5. i agree with the crew that this movie totally holds up, and the script is so efficient. No part of it drags on, and none of it feels rushed or too busy to follow. A thought I had while watching, its always fun to see how props get re-used from movie to movie. Those big robots seen on stage in both of the conventions I remember from the movie Toys from 1992!

  6. I just watched this and right along with the movie and I have to say this was one of the funnest ways I’ve ever watched a movie. So fun. Thanks guys!
