Retro Science Fiction Movies

Keep Watching the Skies American Science Fiction Movies of the Fifties, The 21st Century Edition (2011) by Bill Warren.

Bill has written the definitive book with lots of photos. Few of these movies were meant to be funny, but many are unintentionally humorous.

The title of this book is a quote from the 1951 film ' The Thing from another world.'

Many films in the 1950s depict conflict from alien species and human exploring the solar system.

Lots of retro sci fiction movies are available to watch on the internet. You can also find trailers for these movies on YouTube.

2001:  A Space Odyssey

I enjoy the political cartoons of Cameron Cardow who publishes in The Ottowa Citizen. His Monolith cartoon is a homage to 2001.
