Happy News!

Forbidden Planet, the greatest of all the Golden Age Science Fiction movies, is now available as a streaming freebie on Amazon Prime!

One of those movies I will always drop everything and watch, just for sheer delight at neato, gee whiz, boyhood wonder.  It’s got everything: robots, monsters, virile spacemen, a hubba hubba babe heroine, flying saucers, Chesley Bonestell space art, mad(ish) scientists, way cool 50s special effects, mystery, wonder, a story lifted from The Tempest, and good old school Greco-Christian warnings about hubris, pride, and sin and a good solid reminder that we are not God.

What joy!
