That's a great film. When it came out a lot of people were comparing it unfavourably to the original (made in the early 1950s, I think). Personally, I think it's one of those rare cases where the remake is superior in every way.
I watched Carpenter's' Dark Star' a couple of years back and thought it had aged really, really badly.
