Not wanting to hijack Cranch’s thread about 30 favorite unknown/not as popular films, I thought I’d start a new one discussing sci-fi films/books and our Catholic/Christian faith.
I’ll start with one of my favorites (although I have quite a few), “The Thing from Another World.” MAJOR SPIOLERS AHEAD!!!
Throughout the film Dr. Carrington espouses Darwinism as if it were absolute truth. The military people, the secretary, the reporter and some of the other scientists aren’t convinced of his position nor of his suppositions based on his ideas that a vegetable form of life would be “our superior, our superior in every way.”
I think G. K. Chesterton would have loved this film because, in the end, common sense by common men wins out over artificial theories about life and its meaning.
Does anyone else share my thoughts on this film or have more to share?
Or please post the sci-fi films/books you think have elements of the faith in them that you picked up on.
