Thanks for the thoughts littlemiss. I'm seriously thinking of buying this (but promising myself to buy it again if it is ever released properly on DVD...thus easing my conscience somewhat). Still, it doesn't quite feel like it fits in with my normal policy. We'll see if temptation gets the better of me.
As for Forrest J. - I didn't realise he had a small part in this movie. I read his book on Science Fiction - excellent stuff. This guy has been a SF stalwart for many years now. Long may he continue
