Quality Science Fiction Movie

Recommended Posts

A science fiction classic par excellence!  Coming at the top of the hour on ME TV cable.  Yes, this movie will have you on the edge of your seats with tension!  What is this prodigy, you ask?  Why, nothing less than the blockbuster by MGM

I saw that one at the drive in theater in Moses Lake, Washington the summer that it was released. It was part of a triple play with two rat movies...

OH!!  I REMEMBER THAT ONE!!!  :lol:  :lol:  :P  :D

 

I think that was half of another double feature in the ol' frat house... Beer, Popcorn, Rabbits and Killer Tomatoes!!   rolling-on-the-floor-laughing.gif

I’ve heard of it, but never saw it.  I’ll line it up with some others for Halloween.  My wife loves horror movies.

 

BTW, a piece of trivia: Houston lost its last drive-in theater in 2002.

We have a drive-in theater about ten miles east of me.

It's been there for a few years now.  Love it.

Was raised going to them, with my folks.

This one has several screens, and not just the one.

It's better to go after daylight saving time is over, and it is not so hot that the mosquitoes carry you off.

Sounds like a good movie to see at the drive-in. Is it as bad as "Plan 9 From Outer Space"???

I forgot that Jerry Dunphy was Dunphy was the newscaster in the opening scene.  Newscaster in real life.

I haven't seen it, but I find it hard to believe that anything could be as bad as PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE.

Worse.  Mostly because there is a big dose of early '70s environmentalism in it.

It can’t hold a candle to Plan 9.

I'm reading this comment as Lepus  can't hold a candle to Plan 9 for badness.

 

It lacks the campiness that gives Plan 9 a cult status.  You can watch Plan 9, revel in the camp while hooting about how bad it is.   Lepus is just plain bad, even DeForest Kelly with a cheesy mustache can't give it any redeeming value.

But that isn't science fiction. 

 

I will agree that it is pretty bad.

Jet Pilot wasn't SciFi. I thought we had changed from discussing SciFi to discussing Janet Leigh.

Ah!  I thought you had gone back to bad movies.   Sorry.   Black Shield is so bad that all that stands out in my mind is the bad fighter training and Tony Curtis saying "Yonder is the castle of my father. "

Have you seen The Iron Petticoat?

 

Same movie as Jet Pilot, but with Bob Hope and Katharine Hepburn.

And Tony Curtis was married to Janet Leigh. All is one.

Thanks.  I had managed to forget about that 2008 abomination.  Amazing how with all the technology available to the entertainment industry they are unable to produce decent remakes of the classic SiFi movies.  Maybe it's because they rely too much on the technology to create gee..gollywog..supersplendifferous special effects to overwhelm the audience with their (lack of) creativity.  Sort of like the little kid who thinks gluing more and more pasta onto the bottle before applying the gold spray paint will make a more magnificent vase to give to mom on Mothers Day.
