These are nearly all good choices, but you have left out the film with a "religious message" that made the others look cheap: Devils Advocate Al was born to play Satan!

Action: Die Hard
Thriller:Hunt for red october
Polity:JFK
sci-fi: 2001 a space oddisey
suspense: Abre los ojos ("open your eyes&quot wink

(About "Open your eyes" it`s one of the best spanish movies , made by Alejandro Amenabar, Tom Cruise made a remake called "Vanilla Sky" wich is in theatres just now i guess. I recomend that if you can find the original movie and the other two by Alejandro Amenabar: "Tesis" and "The another ones" (with Nicole Kidman ))

True, but I'd say Sphere had a much higher book-to-movie ratio (coolness of book/coolness of movie=high) than Jurassic.  The b-t-m ratio of The Lost World: Jurassic Park is also pretty high, the saving grace was the T-Rex rampage in San Diego.

By the way...Favorite film with a T-Rex rampage: The Lost World: Jurassic Park.  I have yet to confirm this, but it's rumored that a Japanese business man being chased by the rex says, "I moved here to get away from this!"

I didn't mean to sound like I was disagreeing.  Quite the contrary, actually.  I ejoyed the book more than the film too.  I was merely expressing how disappointed I was with the Sphere movie in comparison to the book (same with Lost World).  Sort of a "good idea, let me try that"-type thing, not a personal attack or disagreement.
