    John Carpenter's 'Starman,' a visitor reconsidered

    A great movie yet that holds up after time. The same can not be said for the TV series that acted as a sequel to the movie.

    that was a good movie but I think it should be left alone

    Please, no. :( Let *some* movies from my youth remain as moments in time.

    Ok, after a quick look at the remake schedules I have been watching I didn't see it on any lists. Doesn't mean it won't be - just isn't right now.

    Starman is a great movie that I can still sit and watch anytime it is on. Besides Indiana Jones, it is Karen Allen's only other good role.

    I still haven't seen this movie and I like John Carpenter flicks. I was going to pickup the newly released Blu-Ray release but I can't seem to find it for a good price.

    You may want to catch it as a rental first before adding it to your collection. The reason being is that, depending on your perspective, it is either an interesting sci-fi movie or a romance movie.

    Maybe I'll rent it from Netflix first.

    It went down to $12.99 for the Blu-Ray version on Amazon so I went ahead and ordered it.
