The fine folks over at Forces of Geek have allowed me the space and time to ramble on about the history of science fiction cinema. These bi-weekly columns, will make an attempt, however feeble, at discussing the history of this often chided cinematic genre. From its birth to the latest CGI box office hits, I will take a look at the films that have filled the genre, as well as their literary influences and TV offshoots. In this episode, my sixth in the series, I take a look at some alien invasion films from the year 1951, one of the early years of the decade that what would become known as the hey day of sci-fi cinema.
