Forbidden Planet


In the year 2257, and Altair 4, a distant colony, has three inhabitants; Professor Morbius (Walter Pidgeon), his bewitching daughter (Anne Francis), and a dutiful robot, named Robby (Frankie Darro and Marvin Miller), who speaks 188 languages. When a space cruiser from Earth lands on the planet a deadly secret is revealed that could spell doom for all on the planet...

Forbidden Planet is the granddaddy of tomorrow, a pioneering work whose ideas and style would be reverse-engineered into many cinematic space voyages to come. Shakespeare's "The Tempest" is transformed into this landmark science-fiction film, which featuring sets of extraordinary scale and the first all-electronic musical soundscape in film history, Forbidden Planet is in a movie orbit all its own!

Another great sci fi classice that you wont get bored watching. A bit scary for kids to watch, so I recommend you watch it first then judge for yourself. This movie has a bit of the dark side about it but its still a movie you could watch again without getting bored.
