Brilliant: Undiluted Pulp Science Fiction on the big screen
This is the Roman Empire of Science Fiction films. All films before lead into it, and all films since flow out of it. It captures the romance, the spirit, and the nifty look of 1950's pulp science fiction. This is one science fiction movie with a theme, not just eye candy.

This film is a masterpiece.
