What would be Spock's favorite film?

He is versed in Shakespeare and classic Earth Literature. He knows Earth music and other arts (in the Flint episode).

Logic dictates he would be interested in other forms of Earth art - like movies!

I think he would be very fond of TRON, for a pointy-eared, green-blooded hobghoblin surely would fancy being INSIDE a computer for a while.

He might appreciate The Incredible Hulk's issues with his duel identity (and the new younger Spock could relate to his rage control issues too!)

Forbidden Planet. He would surely find it oddly prescient. And Vulcans, more than most, know how dangerous "monsters from the id" can be.

Spock would love any movie that was overtly moody and brooding. In other words, every film ever made in the entire history of Russian cinema.

Re: What would be Spock's favorite film?

Given his ownership of a painting of the Fall from Eden, I suspect he likes art that he thinks teaches him about character: perhaps Koyaanisqatsi or Being John Malkovich.

JUst like Data seems to enjoy them, I'd guess that Spock would enjoy a good Whodunnit? Logical deduction.

Citizen Kane. It's fundamental Human behavior--quirks, faults, and triumphs--under a magnifying glass.

Re: What would be Spock's favorite film?

Some good suggestions, I like Speedo's suggestion that he'd be a Tarkovsky nut.

I think Spock would be into movies that are analytical of human behavior and have a strong moral message. Also he wouldn't care if they are slow paced or long. So something like Satantango would be up his alley but not necessarily as dark and bleak. He might enjoy the logical structure and moral messages of Dekalog. And definitely the moral message of movies like The Third Man, Touch of Evil, 400 Blows, Sansho the Baliff, etc.

He seems like he'd be more interested in formalism than the narrative.

I'm sure he'd also enjoy Galaxy Quest.

Re: What would be Spock's favorite film?

I don't want to hijack the topic, but want to expand it to other characters (Or start a new topic for that?)

Off the top of my head:
Picard: Chimes at Midnight
Riker: Last Tango In Paris
EMH: Her
Janeway: Any movie version of a Jane Austen novel

Given that Picard has a love of Shakespeare, I wonder if Baz Luhrmann's Romeo + Juliet is in his DVD collection?

The four-hour Vulcan epic, Logic Over Emotion. A logical retelling of Surak's life and how he put Vulcan on the path to enlightenment.

^That begs the question; do/did they even have movies on Vulcan? (Do they even have them anymore in the UFP at all, or have holodecks eliminated them completely?)
