Brilliant satirical comedy about the Col

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

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

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 ...

What your favorite movie (really) says about you.. (57 movies items)

"If Dr. Strangelove is your favorite movie....You love Peter Sellers; he is a great hero of yours, and revel and delight in the light, though politically relevant, films of the 1960's: the fun, the swinging, the music, the latent hint of psychadelia - but, more importantly, the satiric statement that is prescient for a world to come (err, I mean, the world we are in, now, right now, the climax of the entire universe, now).

"24.2. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Nyt kun Putinin huoli kallisarvoisten ruumiinnesteidensä puolesta ylitti aamulla viimein kriittisen tason, tuntuu jo jossain määrin väärältä, kuinka tolkuttoman hauskaa Tri. Outolemmen pureva ja pelottavakin satiiri on. Kerta toisensa jälkeen. Samanaikaisesti sitä räkättää lapsen tasolla ja puristaa polviaan hermostuksissaan ja vielä ehtii nyökytellä hyväksyvästi monipuoliselle tarkkaavaisuudelle. Presidenttien välinen ensimmäinen puhelinkesku"

" He said war was too important to be left to the generals. When he said that, 50 years ago, he might have been right. But today, war is too important to be left to politicians. They have neither the time, the training, nor the inclination for strategic thought. I can no longer sit back and allow Communist infiltration, Communist indoctrination, Communist subversion and the international Communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids."


Hands down... THE FUNNIEST MOVIE ABOUT THEE END OF THE WORLD THAT YOU'LL EVER SEE !!! I first saw this movie when I was about 12 year old. I'm now fifty-something, and I never tire of it. I watch it a

"“There’s a scene where Sterling Hayden…waxes poetically about water fluoridation being a Communist plot – it’s one of the best pieces of movie writing ever, and it remains permanently imprinted on my brain! Dr. Strangelove also contains one of the great virtuoso comic performances…. Nobody could have done what Peter Sellers did. Or what Stanley Kubrick did.” -Rob Reiner"
