Back to Andromeda

Hall:  “Where’s the library?”

Dutton:  “No need for books — everything’s in the computer.”

One of the few regrets of my adult life is that I never got to meet Michael Crichton, who died too young, November 2008.  Eminently emulatable, he had conquered publishing, film and television and remains a personal hero.  I was hooked from the moment my father returned from his Arctic DEWLine duties bearing a paperback first printing of The Andromeda Strain, which I plowed through while in high school.  Then immediately re-read, and re-read again.

Trailers from Hell and Oren Peli Catch 'The Andromeda Strain'

27 June 2014 4:06 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Today on Trailers from Hell, "Paranormal Activity" writer/director Oren Peli appraises Robert Wise's understated 1971 diseased panic film "The Andromeda Strain."

Though Wise's film was advertised as a wall-to-wall nail-biter ("The suspense will last a lifetime!") the movie is largely inert with a buttoned-down cast (including Arthur Hill and David Wayne) that only adds to the general lethargy. The comparatively mild scenes of violence and nudity caused some to question the film's "G" rating in 1971. »

A small town in New Mexico is decimated by an alien organism in Robert Wise's The Andromeda Strain, based on the first book by Michael Crichton (Westworld, Jurassic Park) to be brought to the screen. Though Wise's film was advertised as a wall-to-wall nail-biter ("The suspense will last a lifetime!") the movie is largely inert with a buttoned-down cast (including Arthur Hill and David Wayne) that only adds to the general lethargy. The comparatively mild scenes of violence and nudity caused some to question the film's "G" rating in 1971.
