    Default Old Science Fiction Films

    Vernon's posting WAR OF THE WORLDS, brought back memories of some good and some best forgotten SIC-FI films.
    The DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL with Michael Rennie.

    INVADERS FROM MARS. This one gave me nightmares for weeks after.

    Yes John , but not just Australian Politicians. Here in the UK it is like a Carry on movie. As for Russia they have Doctor Stranelove in charge.

    Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, known simply and more commonly as Dr. Strangelove, is a 1964 black comedy film that satirizes the Cold War fears of a nuclear conflict between the Soviet Union and the United States.

    Best not mention the EU, comedy club central.

    It sure is true, the rulers of this world are lost when it comes to any good ideas, moral compass, gratitude, common sense, humility and so many more attributes that should apply to all in power.
    Her majesty showed the way, but sadly most others lost the way.
