They've become two of my favourites as well! Although personally I would buy Forbidden Planet before The Day The Earth Stood Still. I was more wowed by that one.
Of course. Forbidden Planet is by far the more spectacular of the two films - it's a pulp cover brought to life. The Day The Earth Stood Still is a far more restrained film, a long stretch of it is indistinguishable from any domestic drama of the era.

Also Sunset Boulevard is for my money Billy Wilder's best film. The Apartment is my runner-up.
