Sci Fi – 50’s style

It never ceases to amaze me that given the literally millions of dollars spent on the latest spectacular science fiction films or films of fantasy that are delivered to us as consumers year on year, there seems to be a real lack of story telling, and the reliance at all angles for better thrills and spills, it seems, that we have in the age of technology being king, become slaves, to its relentless and continuing consumption of the art. The art of story telling. Human being’s love stories, but it seems that the modern film and science fiction industry makes a B line for the CGI and CCI at every turn, to, try and lure us into the miss belief that we are infact getting better stories, and better story telling, from their output. The truth of this we are not, and I find it interesting that I constantly go back to watching and viewing films and content from the 30’s, 40’s, 50’s 60’s and some 70’s, although we are really pushing it once we get here, as of course, this was the start of the undoing, this is when a certain gold human like robot and his white dustbin compardre really beckoned the start of the change. Any way the real find for me was this great blog site which I have linked here, it is well worth a read. It is well worth looking up some of these films, so of which you can watch at your leisure on You Tube. http://classicscifi.blogspot.com/2013/02/the-manster.html
