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 fifth in the series, I take a look at the a pair of rocket to the moon films from the year 1950 and the beginning of what would become known as the hey day of science fiction cinema.
