"Look Out Honey, 'Cause I'm Using Technology!" (Part 2 of 2)

Additional inspiration from Douglas Brode's Fantastic Planets, Forbidden Zones, and Lost Continents: The 100 Greatest Science-Fiction Films (Austin: University of Texas Press, 2015).

More favorites already seen include: 

Things to Come (1936)
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)
Village of the Damned (1960 version) 
The Day of the Triffids (1963)
Still to see:

Earth vs. The Flying Saucers (1956)
This Island Earth (1955)
Conquest of Space (1955)
Five Million Miles to Earth (1967)
The Thing from Another World (1951)  
Them! (1954)
The Fifth Element (1997)
New to me, still to see:

Queen of Outer Space (1958)
Starcrash (1978)
Dr. Cyclops (1940)
Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow (2004)

Do any of these jump out at you?

Today's Rune: Signals.

Such a wealth of imaginative sci fi movies! Your post made me take my Frank R Paul book of science fiction art off the bookshelf and pour over his delightful images.

I have yet to see Starcrash. I need to watch it.
