Forces of Geek "A History of Sci-Fi Cinema" Column - Part III

The fine folks over at Forces of Geek have allowed me the space and time to ramble on about the history of science fiction cinema.  These bi-weekly columns, will make an attempt, however feeble, at discussing the history of this often chided cinematic genre.  From its birth to the latest CGI box office hits, I will take a look at the films that have filled the genre, as well as their literary influences and TV offshoots.  In this episode, my third in the series, I take a look at the the 1920's and the expressionistic and art deco work of Fritz Lang, and especially at his great classic of the genre, Metropolis.

Read my column, "Fritz Lang, Metropolis and German Expressionism," at Forces of Geek.
