The Day The Earth Stood Still (1951)

 Rated R because ’50s sci-fi film discussions require dirty mouths.


Aliens attack! Or they threaten to, which gives us plenty of opportunity to crack wise and tear the the story apart. Yup, the 41st Next 100 Project podcast about KlaatuGort and us stupid, stupid humans is the most fun you’ll ever have with this enjoyable, but dated motion pic. Check out Sparkplug Coffee, then put our words in your ears!

For The Records: The other 1951 movie we covered for the T100P was An American In Paris. Also, it’s “gigantism”, not “giantism”. Also also, we’ve seen Arrival since this recording. Terrific sci-fi mind-bender. See it!
