Sci - Fi Friday (delayed)
A little late, I know but yesterday was quite hectic, what between writing articles, editing videos, processing photos, having an interview and teaching. But without further ado is this week's addition to Sci-Fi Friday, Howard Hawk's 1951 classic The Thing from Another World. As IMDB puts it;
"Scientist at an Arctic research station discover a spacecraft buried in the ice. Upon closer examination, they discover the frozen pilot. All hell breaks loose when they take him back to their station and he is accidentally thawed out!"
What makes this movie stand out from its "guy in a monster suit" contemporaries is the witty dialogue and interesting ideas.
