Anomalous Material Weekly Feature: 10 Best 1950's Sci-Fi Films

As you may already know, I now take up weekly residence over at the great film site Anomalous Material.  The fine folks over there have given me a regular weekly gig as feature writer.  It is a series of top ten lists on various cinematic subjects (and anyone who knows me can attest to how perfectly suited I am to such an endeavor - yes I am a list nerd).  This week's feature piece (my ninth such piece) is on  1950's Science-Fiction (and Monster) Movies.  You may be able to see the wires but they are still fun fun fun indeed.  Anyway, read on true believers.


Below is a shot from a fun film, 20 Million Miles to Earth, which is spotlighted by great creature effects from the legendary Ray Harryhausen.  This film just missed making the list but I still wanted to include it somewhere - so here it is.

I love reading these lists/articles that you write every week - I think I'm a list nerd too (not that anyone could tell though). Looking forward to next week's.

Thanx. It feels good to know somebody is reading. As for next week's list -- hope ya like a certain boy from Shawnee, Oklahoma. Now how's that for an obscure clue.

StanwyckFan said...

That is quite the obscure clue - I must say, I'm completely in the dark - But I am excited none-the-less. :)

Here's another not so helpful hint -- that boy from Shawnee, Oklahoma spent a good portion of his breakthrough role in bed with an Oscar winner.

StanwyckFan said...

I think I figured out who that boy from Shawnee is...can I take a guess? I may be wrong anyway.

Kevyn Knox said...

Go for it.

Brad Pitt? Am I right? I cheated and googled "famous people from Shawnee, Oklahoma". ;)

Kevyn Knox said...

You got it!! The list will be "10 Best Brad Pitt Performances".

StanwyckFan said...

Yes! I win! ;) I can't say that I really like Brad Pitt, but chances are I'll be over here reading about him next week anyway.

I just love all of the old sci fi movies of the 50' so keep your list going, and how about doing a list of the 60' best sci fi movies.
