"Better than the curate's egg."

“The daythe earth stood still” will stand high in any company, 5 stars. “Journey to the centre of the earth” another excellent oldie, 5stars. “Voyage to the bottom of the sea”, another oldie in a class of it's own, 5 stars. Considering the technology available when these films were made, modern technology has produced nothing to beat them. “Fantastic voyage” rated much publicity in it's day but falls a long way short of the hype, 2stars. “Solaris”, rubbish, half a star for trying.

Losing patience, Klaatu slips into the human world, adapting a false identity and living at a boarding house where he meets a smart woman with a conscience and her inquisitive son.
