The best science fiction movies from every decade.
20 Million Miles to Earth
***20 Million Miles to Earth is a science fiction monster movie from the Fifties, made more charming and more exciting by the fact that it dispenses with the typical "guy in a rubber monster suit" in favor of really impressive stop-motion animation by Ray Harryhausen, the pioneer, and legend in this field.

Close Encounters of the Third KInd (Director's Cut)
***I've seen a UFO. Up close. Matter of fact, I've seen a couple of them. I don't know, specifically, what that means about ME, but, as far as the influence of the film Close Encounters of the Third Kind on m life, it WAS one of the first films from infanthood (along with Time After Time (1979) and Salem's Lot (1979), and the TV adaptation of the stage play of The Elephant Man (1982)) to indelibly etch its scenes into my subconscious. Especially the mantis-like alien that first appears during the final scenes of the film.

She grabbed onto me and her arms flailing. I could hear her over the comlink but there was so much static I couldn’t make out a word she was saying. She kept pointing at the ship but the safety line was real tight and pulling us back it felt like, but because of the helmet and the tension on the tether I couldn’t look back to see what was going on. Then suddenly it was peaceful, the safety line loosened up and we were still hanging onto each other and then Yanisha stopped waving her arms.
