    Looking for an old SciFi movie (help!!)

    Hi there,
    loooooong looooong time ago (when I was a kid), I remember I watched an old scifi movie I can't remember the name of.
    I just remember a scene where a robot removes a little piece of glass (or metal or..) from the eye of a woman inside a greenhouse or something like that.

    I've thinking a lot about this, but I just can't remember... do any of you know what movie I'm talking about?

    I know is a very far shot , but thanks anyway .

    BTW, any 1900-2k's scifi movie recommendation would be appreciated .

    Thanks!!

    Must be Saturn 3, with Kirk Douglas and Farrah Fawcett. There's a scene where the robot removes a tiny chip from her eye.

    BTW, any 1900-2k's scifi movie recommendation would be appreciated .

    Forbidden Planet
    Logans Run
    Metropolis
    Blade Runner
    This Island Earth
    Twelve Monkeys
    Westworld
    Thing
    Invasion of Body Snatchers
    Monoliths

    A guy in Spain can't think of a movie, and it takes all of a half an hour for a guy in Indiana to help him out. That's Cool.

    Might I also suggest

    A Boy and His Dog
    Solaris < the Tarkofsky version
    The Quiet Earth
    Stalker < Also Tarkofsky based on a book called Roadside picnic or the other way around
    Outland
    Brazil < Terry Gilliam from Monty Python directed this. Fantastic movie.

    2001:A Space Odyssey, the sequel, 2010 was pretty good. Silent Running is a movie I can't recommend enough. And there are two exellent sci fi films in theaters right now: Moon and District 9.

    I don't really remember that movie, but I recommend you Buck Rogers \o/ it's really oldschool
    But seriously, I would recomend:
    -Solaris
    -Stalker
    -The day the earth stood still (the old one - and the new one)
    -Mars Atack
    -Alien (1,2 and 3) - I LOOVE that series
    -2001
    -Planet of Apes
    -Metropolis (this is REALLY classic, you should see it if you didn't yet )

    Some slightly more Earth bound Science Fiction:

    The Village of the Damned (1960), based on 'The Midwich Cuckoos' by John Wyndham. (Stay away from the 1995 remake with Christopher Reeve that moves the story to the US for no dicernable logical reason what-so-ever!)

    The Day the Earth Caught Fire (1961). Brilliant and realistic (for 1961!) film of what would happen if twin nuclear explosions moved the Earth closer to the sun. Told through the eyes of a newspaper reporter.

    Fahrenheit 451 (1966) Based on Ray Bradbury's book about a near future world where books are banned.

    Brazil (1985) Terry Gilliam movie about a dystopian near future Britain. With Monty Python members and a bizarre cameo by Robert de Niro.

    The Man Who Fell to Earth (1976) Surreal movie with David Bowie who plays the first alien visitor to Earth.

    Doppelganger (Journey the the Far Side of the Sun) (1969) - Gerry (Thunderbirds) Anderson live action movie starring Roy (The Invaders) Thinnes, as an astronaut who discovers a mirror version of Earth.

    I also recommend the Quatermass movies, but moreso the TV series. If you can track down the original BBC 'Quatermass and the Pit' which was broadcast in the '50s you are in for a scary treat, mixing horror and sci-fi it was the first TV series that brought Britain to a standstill because everyone wanted to see it!

    Then there is 1950's US sci fi - This Island Earth, Forbidden Planet, Invaders from Mars, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Them, The Time Machine (1960)... Some of which deal with social issues, but in a metaphorical way.

    Dark City is a very underrated sci-fi film. Brazil's still my favourite with Blade Runner & Equilibrium a close second. Also really liked Primer even though it's impossible to fully understand the plot.

    Thumbs up

    Mad Cross: Yeeeep, that's the one !, thanks a lot !!, and thanks for the other ones.

    Thanks a lot to everyone, there are few movies I have to check.

    This is my recommendation list:

    1984 (a must see)
    2001:A Space Odyssey (Arthur C Clarke + Kubrick)
    2010
    Avalon
    Alien 1
    Blade Runner (And the "making of" Dangerous Days, I really love this movie)
    Brazil (Terry "Genius" Gilliam)
    Fifth Element (Funny + Bruce Willis + milla jovovich + a lot of design ("inspired" from metropolis and updated))
    Gattaca
    Logans Run (Great indeed)
    Mad Max
    Metropolis (1927)
    Outland (Yeah, My men are SHIT! )
    Planet of Apes 1
    Sleeper (Not really SciFi... but it's Woody Allen's)
    Solaris (Tarkovsky)
    Spaceballs (No really SciFi but...)
    Stalker (Tarkovsky)
    Terminator 1
    The Thing
    The Time Machine (1960)
    THX 1138 (George "yes, I can screw all the sagas because I can" Lucas)
    Twelve Monkeys (Gilliam again + Bruce willis + Bratt Pitt + Madeleine Stowe)


    And well.. SciFi+Anime:

    Cowboy bebop
    Ghost in the shell (just everything)
    FLCL
    And of course... Evangelion (no shitty new movies, the original ones + death & rebirth + End of Evangelion)

    And some more I just can't remember right now.

    Thanks again to everyone

    (John Carpenter's) The Thing
    Escape from New York
    Repo Man
