Honestly, I find it rather difficult to judge this movie. Indeed, it is almost 60 years old and after watching 100s of more modern SF features like '2001: A Space Odissey ', 'Prometheus' or 'Interstellar' which had access to some more advanced technology and some much bigger budgets, the whole thing looked pretty cheesy. On top of that, from the moment you see Leslie Nielsen showing up on the scr... read more

My Top 199 Favorite Sci-Fi Movies... Of Like, Ever (199 movies items)

As Hamlet once said, ""That it should come to this!". - (Act I, Scene II). And yeah, I know that I probably should've used a quote from The Tempest instead, but the only one I can remember from that story is th"

" Notes: To be honest, I think it is rather difficult to judge this movie. Indeed, it is around 60 years old and after watching 100s of more modern SF features like '2001: A Space Odissey ', 'Prometheus' or 'Interstellar' which had access to some more advanced technology and some much bigger budgets, the whole thing now looks pretty cheesy. On top of that, from the moment you see Leslie Nielsen showing up on the screen, you expect him to crack up some stupid jokes every 5 minutes. And yet, we sh"

Adams’s (Leslie Nielsen) starship lands on the barren planet of Altair IV to investigate what became of a colony established there 20 years earlier, he and his crew are met by its sole survivors: Dr. Morbius (Walter Pidgeon); his beautiful daughter, Altaira (Anne Francis); and their robot, Robby, a construct more advanced than e"
