This is one of the best movies of all time. I was disappointed with the picture quality on the blu-ray, though. I was expecting it to be much better.

5 star movie, 3 star blu-ray quality.

What would be the point in attempting to add to the millions of words already written about this film. It's a classic and it's brilliant.

The end of the world is not a funny prospect, but Dr. Strangelove helps to point out the idiocy of those in power and to make you laugh at how stupid they can be. Thank goodness that they never did go this route. There are enough nuclear weapons to kill us all a thousand times, so there's no need for a doomsday device. All we need now is for a smaller nuclear power to start throwing their weight around to bring this concern back to the forefront.

Peter Sellers was always a brilliant actor and comedian and this is one of his greatest multiple-role films. His untimely passing has left a vacancy that no one has been able to fill, although many have tried and failed.

This particular edition includes documentaries on the world behind the premise of a doomsday device, and the making of this film. From the original book (by another name) and the evolution of the story line. Lots of interesting information for classic black-comedy film buffs and fans.

This movie will never get "old." :)

It's on every list of the greatest comedy movies. Even though it was made back when movies were still limited to two colors, three if you count grey, it's humor is still...humorous. People today think it's cool when Mike Meyers does multiple characters, but he's nothing compared to Mr. Seller's. Despite a sort of slow start, you soon come to realize why this made it on so many lists. If only because of the great ending.

"Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb" is an old movie that tackles a difficult subject, the end of the world as we know it due to a nuclear war. Despite that, it is simply brilliant, and not boring at all.

Why? Well, there are different reasons to say that, but I think I'll point out only those that I deem more important:

1- To start with, even though this film was made in 1964, director Stanley Kubrick managed to create a timeless masterpiece that depicts, in a sardonic way, the dangers of nuclear war. The message of this movie still comes across as valid, albeit nowadays for different reasons.

2- Secondly, even though the subject is undeniably serious, this movie is a black comedy that makes you laugh. If that is difficult to believe, take into account that the plot involves a crazy general (Sterling Hayden) that sidesteps the chain of command in order to launch a nuclear airstrike on the URSS, something his aide (Captain Mandrake, played by Peter Sellers), the President (played by Peter Sellers!!) and many of his advisors (including Dr. Strangelove, a scientist also played by Peter Sellers) try to stop. But will that be possible? And what about the Soviet "Doomsday Machine", that will be triggered automatically by any nuclear attack on Soviet soil?

All in all, I think this is the kind of movie you simply must watch. Highly recommended :)

Every ideology that seems terribly important to one generation usually ends up seeming idiotic and even disturbingly naive to the following generation.
Think about it. The ideologies of the 18th century - dying for one's prince, duke or loot - seemed insane during the Napoleonic Wars, when nationalism became THE primary motivating factor.
"Pure" nationalism - like the extreme gung-ho attitudes at the beginning of World War I - seemed rather distasteful to the Allied forces in World War II, who fought to liberate peoples from Fascism.
The idea that Fascism would always endure, and was seriously in danger of taking over the world, seemed laughable during the Cold War.
How does the Cold War look to us today? The McCarthy era; Americans truly believing the USSR and the Communists were veritable Antichrists; truly believing that DESTROYING ALL LIFE ON THE PLANET was a feasible prediction about life in the near future; that the world was, always had been, and always would be, characterised by a fight between Communists and Capitalists.
*Sigh*
Dr Strangelove (or: how I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb) is actually MORE funny - and disturbing - in some ways now than it was before. Admittedly I can sort of understand the immense impact of this film - could ANY politial satire have been more timely - but the fact that the "better red than dead" ideology nowadays seems as ridiculous as fighting for your Duke, means that this film can be seen in a new light.
People actually believed that is was better to be dead than Red? (Yes they did). People actually believed fluoridation of water was a communist conspiracy??? (Yes, they did). The Russians actually contemplated building a Doomsday device? (Yes they did!!!
