Have to give another vote to Pandorum, but I liked Solaris which most people didn't. Have to heartily agree with Moon.
This thread is making me realize we need more sci-fi movies!
DWW is one of those movies I'd love to experience freshly again, like Pulp Fiction. It's preachy in parts, but very moving in others. If you do watch, just try to go in with no expectations, is it like this or that, what's its message, how forced it said message. Just watch it like a recounting of one man's experience after the Civil War when he felt like a man adrift and sought a meaningful life. In that respect, and ONLY that respect, I'd break my rule of expectations and say it shares a lot with The Heart of There Will Be Blood, when it focuses on the story of a man in America striking it out on his own and how difficult and dangerous that drive can be in reality.
