I don't know....
While Forbidden Planet is amazingly fantastically great science fiction, I like The Day the Earth Stood Still soooo much better. For me, scence fiction is a semi-morality tale of people discovering fundamental truths about humanity that is set off in sharp relief against an un-human/alien environment, situation or character. This is something that very little in the way of science fiction does anymore, or really EVER did, especially when it comes to the cinemazation of scifi. The Day the Earth Stood Still meets that criterion, and while it might not be perfect (surprise--the aliens look just like...humans!), it is the best of the best of the best in cinema. Not that it isn't, but the Truth in Forbidden Planet, to me, isn't as compelling as that in TDTESS.
