Forbidden Planet (rewatch)

Posted by martinteller on April 2, 2007

I didn’t really need to buy this on HD-DVD, I’ve seen it more than enough times.  Sure looks pretty in hi-def, though.  Except for the fact that Leslie Nielsen’s character is too much of an asshole to root for, it’s a pretty cool movie.  A strong, intelligent sci-fi premise, Robby the Robot, awesome set design and matte backgrounds, killer electronic sounds and music, and Anne Francis in skimpy miniskirts.  Rating: 8

The disc also had an abysmal episode of “The Thin Man” with Robby in it.  Man, even though television is 95% crap today, most of it still a lot better than the kind of thrown-together pap they had back then.
