Rating: 4/4 -- A superb sci-fi flick, Forbidden Planet offers an unusually intelligent script, exciting direction by Wilcox and generally good acting from a decent if rather dull cast. Full Review

Over 50 years on, FORBIDDEN PLANET still looks like the future....An oddity that would change the face of science-fiction on film.

Rating: 4/5 -- No wonder so many sci-fi writers have cited it as an inspiration, I can see how this film would spark a lot of imagination back then, or even now. Great stuff. Full Review

Product Description:

Shakespeare's THE TEMPEST is transformed in this landmark science-fiction film. Spacemen travel to a planet ruled by Dr. Edward Morbius (Walter Pidgeon), who has built a kingdom with his daughter and obedient robot Robby. The good doctor is plagued by his mad quest for knowledge through his "brain booster" machine, and by Freudian "monsters from the id" as his daughter discovers other men and learns to kiss.
