A special 25-year-anniversary DVD edition of Repo Man recently came out. Watching it again after all these years, I was reminded how much I liked it the first time around!!!

Yes ! Aliens had 9 plans to take over the earth. This is 9 more than BP had for it's DWH disaster. The aliens only error was to choose the plan to raise an army of dead humans; clearly, us live ones can make things bad on our own !

Reading everyone's list I find it interesting that nearly everyone has a "list", but not a specific favorite. Maybe that is particular to engineers, who knows, but for us, you can either make the list or not, but we don't have a defacto all-time favorite. Same goes for me, there are aspects of several sci-fi movies that "make the list", but I can't bring myself to pick 1 favorite and rule out all of the other great movies.

If only because it seems to be the very first movie to star an extremely young Leonard Nimoy, I vote for "Zombies of the Stratosphere," an otherwise dreadful movie serial with a plot that was so convoluted that it deserves the MST3K treatment. For good sci-fi, look to Blade Runner, which was based on a Phillip K. Dick novel titled "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" The cinematography and set design on this picture (starring Hrrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Sean Young, Edward James Olmos, Darryl Hannah)is really amazing. See it on the biggest screen you can.

The vast majority of the embedded designers I know typically create MCU-based systems -- they rarely even consider using a Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA).

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
