Subject: BS: favorite old sci-fi movie
I find the Sci-Fi cable channel very boring except when they do something like a Twilight Zone marathon. These guys are missing the boat. Anytime I channel surf past the Sci-Fi channel, it seems that I never ever see any aliens, monsters, rocket ships, etc. Worst of all, they never seem to show any of those great old classics many of us grew up with.
One of my favorites was the 1957 release of The Beginning of The End which had giant grasshoppers invading Chicago, which is my lifelong home town. It was fascinating to see these giant bugs crawling up the skyscrapers and looking into the windows of women in their bedrooms.
What are some other favorites out there?
