Part 1
Part 2
Part 3

I'm surprised no one's posted this already. Anyway, Chuck's review of one of the great sci-fi creations, which he considerately put up the week after I finally managed to watch it for the first time. :)

Just watched this movie yesterday for the first time in years; still great.

This movie, even more than Blade Runner, cemented my status as a drooling fanboi of Ridley Scott... even despite Kingdom of Heaven and 1492: Conquest of Paradise.

Now I really want to watch it again, has been too long. Need to find the box-set to add to my DVD collection.
