November 08, 2012


I grew up on a steady diet of the Lost in Space robot and Robbie the Robot (who has played so many roles, he has a better CV than a lot of human actors).

I get a little tear in my eye, every time I hear the "Science Fiction/Double Feature" song from Rocky Horror.

Leslie Nielsen!

Surely you can't be an alien.
I am an alien. And Don't call me Shirley!

Shirley you jest...

Amazing cast from back in the day when all sci-fi films were cult. And the drive-in was the excuse to try one's luck at the submarine races.

hail MSTST3000!

What a great movie! "Creatures from the Id!!!!!!"

And also, if I'm remembering correctly, the first all-electronic music score for a film.

This is an ABSOLUTELY PRICELESS FReeper Post for Tommy: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2957088/posts

Please, someone make sure that he gets it-- pure comic GOLD.


Forbidden Planet is a really great film, a true science fiction classic. It was a retelling of The Tempest and surprisingly true to Shakespeare. For a film of its era, it has really good special effects - I think Disney was involved - and as noted earlier spacey electronic "tonalities" on the sound track.

Freud may not be in fashion these days, but the "monsters from the id" thing was a real intrusion into Paradise.

Maple Street -

Pedantry Alert!

The name of the Robot from Lost in Space is B9 (say it aloud), and his voice is earily the same as Driftglass'.



@MF: Passed on the link to Tommy.

Thanks, Adrastos!

Thanks Tengrain! Never knew that. Now I'm gonna have to pull out the box set and find out where that is used. (my curiosity is gonna keep at me till I find it).

Thanks, MF!
On it!
Comedy gold fer sure.


@MF and @Tommy, love the comment on the link that it won't be funny when the IRS shows up and demands to know the numbers for your checking and savings accounts.

Think they'll figure out that the SS numbers have long been needed to open up a bank account? And that the regulation got a lot more stringent under the un-Patriot Act under Bush II.

That Robby the Robot was a horny hunk of metal. The Id Monster was a fabrication, an excuse to scoop up half-naked female flesh.
