  • Earth vs. the Flying Saucers 1956

    ★★★★ Watched 17 Dec, 2014

    the classic Earth vs. the Flying Saucers still stands as a really solid, serious and at the same time silly sci fi flick with some fun Ray Harryhausen effects and great 1950 performances where everyone seems to shouting for some reason. it's like 69 minutes long, wastes zero time getting to the UFOs and is still lots of fun.
