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

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 fourth in the series, I take a look at the the onslaught of horror and sci-fi from Universal, at the serials of the day, and at a big ole loveable ape by the name of Kong.

Read my column, "Universal Horror, Space Age Heroes, and a Giant Ape Falls in Love," at Forces of Geek.
