I'm on a classics spree

I must say, there's something to be said for the classics.

Invasion of the Bodysnatchers..

Favorite line so far:

"Doctor, is this an example of your bedside manner?"
"No, that comes later."

I like that this was made long before CGI existed.
So it's cheesy and the effects are minimal, but it forces everyone to actually act!
Or at least give it their best effort.
Plus, if you don't have much to work with for effects, you have to create suspense.

The body count is impossible to determine, but basically the whole town has been turned into mindless automatrons.

I'm liking the movie..plot holes the size of Pluto and all.
And yes, I chose Pluto because it may no longer be a planet, but it's still pretty darn big.
Oh, and the movie is about aliens. Or at least pod-like things from space.
So the Pluto connection makes sense.
