Below are a few, do you have a fave as much as one can have one in this case? Sorry if this disturbs anyone, and as usual, add your own in replies.

The Andromeda Strain - it makes more sense if you read the book B4 seeing the film . I know that Brian has seen another good film on this subject : THX1138.
