Fatal Planet

Forbidden Planet is one of the movies we have to thank for the progression of science fiction. When I was a kid my parents had a collection of VHS tapes. One of the movies was Forbidden Planet. I always thought the poster/cover looked really cool. A robot on an alien world carrying an unconscious woman. So I was curious to check the movie out. Leslie Nelson stars in a much more dramatic role then the comedic roles he’d be known for. Forbidden Planet also has many firsts. It was the first movie to depict space travel that’s “faster-than-the-speed-of-light.” The iconic character Robby the Robot was the first robot to be an actual character in film. It’s also the first movie to take place entirely on a different planet. So yeah, Forbidden Planet did a lot. It’s been so long since I’ve seen it, but I remember enjoying it. Forbidden Planet is a must for sci-fi fans.
