||Great Sci-Fi Adventure|
Fifty years later, this classic stands up just fine against newer more expensive sci-fi films. As always, a good script and capable actors make a film worthwhile and this film has both. It also has stunning sets and a matching soundtrack to go with the futuristic setting. This is for sci-fi what the Wizard of Oz is to fantasy, an all itme classic that is ageless.
By Larry (Buckley, IL)
||An all-time classic|
As nice as it is to have "Forbidden Planet" on DVD, this is one film that deserves to be reissued as a Blu-Ray. Here's hoping that will eventually happen.

||Robby the Robot is alive and well.|
.52 years later Robby in still working. His debuet in this number one scifi pic ,for a single movie, of all time is a must for all. Buy It Now. We fans must lobby for the laser disc with all the extras that this does not have, blue prints alternate sceens and more,to be released on DVD. Give this film as a gift to someone you love.

||Old Time Sci-fi|
Forbidden Planet, if you like Sci-fi this movie should be part of your movie collection. It is one of the top ten best Sci-fi movies ever made. As the old cliche goes: It made me laugh,cry, happy and sad. The movie flows and has a good story line, the special effects are good for the time.

Forbidden Planet DVD Features
Forbidden Planet: 50th Anniversary Edition (Dbl DVD)
A dutiful robot named Robby speaks 188 languages. An underground lair offers evidence of an advanced civilization. But among Altair-4's many wonders, none is greater or more deadly than the human mind. Forbidden Planet is the granddaddy of tomorrow, a pioneering work whose ideas and style would be reverse-engineered into many cinematic space voyages to come. Leslie Nielsen plays the commander who brings his spacecruiser crew to the green-skied world that's home to Dr. Morbius (Walter Pidgeon), his daughter (Anne Francis)...and to a mysterious terror. Featuring sets of extraordinary scale and the first all-electronic musical soundscape in film history, Forbidden Planet is in a movie orbit all its own.
