    Some bright person(s) in charge seemed to get-it that the concept of the creature is fantastic so no need for lots of fixes.!!!

    From your limited perspective perhaps.

    I would agree that this is matter of perspective.
    It was one of the first, popular vet movies of that generation. It's all the ones that followed it that are derivative.

    (It's like calling the Lord of the Rings books a 'dime-a-dozen wizard fantasy'. No, they were the seminal works - the benchmarks.)

    As a combat veteran I found it rather stupid. As a veteran I found it insulting. I really don't care what other perspectives there are.

    OK, well you could have stated that you were viewing it with specious eye. Then we wouldn't have had to point out that your perspective is unique.

    It's not "unique". It's different from some here, but that's a whole other kettle of fish.

    By John Johnson, Newser Staff
    Posted Apr 4, 2013 4:34 PM CDT

    (Newser) – If you're looking for a way to acknowledge the passing of Roger Ebert, you might consider a movie marathon from his list of the 10 greatest films of all time. Ebert's last version came in April of 2012 when he participated in Sight & Sound magazine's once-every-10-year list. And the winners (he listed them alphabetically) are:

    • Aguirre, Wrath of God (Werner Herzog)
    • Apocalypse Now (Francis Ford Coppola)
    • Citizen Kane (Orson Welles)
    • La Dolce Vita (Federico Fellini)
    • The General (Buster Keaton)
    • Raging Bull (Martin Scorsese)
    • 2001: A Space Odyssey (Stanley Kubrick)
    • Tokyo Story (Yasujiro Ozu)
    • The Tree of Life (Terrence Malick)
    • Vertigo (Alfred Hitchcock)
