Why go to church (yawn) when you can watch a bad movie?
Today's movie is one I saw this morning with my youngest daughter. She didn't understand the drama and espionage and the giant computer and the stuff about "across the pole" people ... but she loved the young boy and she ADORED Robby!
Here's the wikipedia entry for it ...
Released by Metro-Goldwyn Mayer a year after Forbidden Planet, this film's earlier title was S.O.S Spaceship. According to a subtle backstory, the robot in The Invisible Boy is the exact same robot as that in the futuristic Forbidden Planet, which is set in the 23rd century. He is brought back to the era of the film through time travel, which makes this a somewhat indirect sequel."
It's pretty strange. It's a kiddie film and it's a dark espionage story and it's a Robby the Robot picture and it's silly and moody and ... it's just a big, hot mess.
Enjoy it, people!
