When I first saw this film 2 years ago, I saw it, I thought about it for a second, and I thought it was good, but I didn't understand why it was so universally loved. Really high on IMDB's Top 250 list, has a near perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes, put high on a few of AFI's lists, and at the top of many people's and critic's all time favorite films. So I got to thinking, why was it so well loved?<... read more

There is no doubt in my mind that Peter Sellers made this movie. And what a movie!

Sellers plays several characters in this film, Group Captain Lionel Mandrake, President Merkin Muffley and of course Dr. Strangelove. Each not only showed an amazing command of various accents, English, American and German in that order; but highlighted just exactly why Seller's was one of the greate... read more

Not having grown up in the black & white era, I can't say I'm normally a fan of old classics, yet this movie compelled me. It's one of the most satirical black comedy I've ever seen, dealing with a topic that was very sensitive to people at the time; Nuclear War with the USSR.

It centres around a US General that has lost his sanity and single-handedly issues a code to all the B-... read more

Description: Convinced that the Russians have infiltrated America's "vital essence," the crazed General Jack D. Ripper (Sterling Hayden) gives the go code to the 843rd bomb wing to attack Russia, setting in motion a series of darkly hilarious vignettes involving gung-ho soldiers, wacky generals, spying Russians, drunken premiers, battles with soda machines, fights in the War Room, and the Russians' top-secret Doomsday Machine. Shot in black and white, the film has three main centers of action: one of the B-52 bombers, on which a group of loyal men know they are about to start World War III; Burpelson Air Force Base, where Group Cap ...

"This is one that I'm sure I love for completely the wrong reason. I never saw that much humour in this movie at all, not even black humour. To me, it always just seemed like a straight-up thriller. Yes, I know it's a Cold War political satire, but it's still about one unhinged man threatening to start a global apocalypse. And the various attempts to stop the bombers make for some truly nail-biting stuff. The tension from beginning to end has me on the edge of my seat. But maybe that's just becau"

" Notes: I had the opportunity to watch it again recently and, this time, I understood why it was regarded as one of his best movies. It was the only comedy made by Stanley Kubrick and, as expected from the best director ever, it ended up being one of the best comedies ever made. Indeed, there were so many hysterical and hilarious scenes, I couldn't pick just one. Furthermore, everybody remembers Peter Sellers who was indeed excellent but the rest of the cast was also pretty awesome (George C. S"

" Peter Sellers make fun of some good political stereotypes and have a ball as a mad German scientist and we get to see the iconic image of Slim Pickens on top of a falling nuclear bomb in this one. George C. Scott also do one of his life's best roles. Stanley Kubrick never directed a funnier film than this one. "
