'My Favorite Martian' Bloghop and Me!


'My Favorite Martian' Bloghop brought to you by the GEEK TWINS where we share our favorite and so I thought about it for some time and went with my first thought... I give you all "MUTANT" from the 1955 classic science fiction film "THIS ISLAND EARTH"...


About the film: Dr. Cal Meacham, a noted scientist, receives an unusual substitute for electronic condensers that he ordered. Instead, he receives instructions and parts to build a complex communication device called an interocitor. Although neither Meacham nor his assistant Joe Wilson have heard of the device, they immediately begin construction. When finished, a mysterious man named Exeter appears on the interocitor's screen and tells Meacham he has passed the test. His ability to build the interocitor demonstrates that he is gifted enough to be part of Exeter's special research project.


I know it looks like a upside down ball-sack...  well maybe you didn't see it that way, oh well now you do. Please stop over and visit the others, see who they have chosen to be their favorites. Thank you... "THE GEEK TWINS"

  1. I grew up watching movies like this, and I've seen this one many times! Great pick! And yes, I see this one as an upside down ballsack.

  3. "Self-cleaning Mutant, Leaves only the fresh scent of pine."
    Wait, sorry - that's from the MST3K version.
    Mutant from Metaluna!

  5. Retro aliens! Great choice!I need to actually sit down and watch this film. I have heard of it and even have a picture of Jessica Rabbit in This Islan Earth - but I have yet to watch it. Thanks for the reminder

  6. This is great! I love Mutant. And very nicely written - makes me want to see the film again (not seen it in donkeys years!) The trailer is top notch! Thanks for sharing this!

  7. Some of those old movies are something else. The acting and technology don't always age well, but at the time they were quite scary. It's kind of like Classic Star Trek. Their tech at the time was cutting edge. But we've advanced so much (at least cinematically) that it looks hoaky now.

  8. You know, despite the cheesy costume of The Mutant, This Island Earth actually had some great special effects for its time. All those explosions and ray beams look pretty nice for the era!

  11. It absolutely looks like an upside down ball sack. Someone would have to be blind to not draw that comparison. :)

  14. Hilarious pics Jeremy. Good choice too. "I never Metaluna I didn't like." MST3K quote. Glad to have you aboard the bloghop!

  15. Saying hello from the blogfest...I haven't seen the movie, but that picture of "space twister" is pretty funny. I'd imagine it can get awkward playing twister with an alien.

  16. I sometimes wonder what my life would be like if I grew up watching cheesy movies like this rather than Disney and John Wayne. And Star Trek. Lots and lots of Star Trek. Also, Star Wars.

  17. Thanks for sharing a classic with us - I'm not old enough to have come across this one before. :)

  18. Fantastic choice Jeremy! I love this movie a lot - and the Metaluna Mutant (a $40,000 suit back when that was SERIOUS money) was always one of my very favorite alien creatures ever! Top marks and cheers!

  19. High fives on the pic! I loved this movie and it is a great extra-terrestrial. There's something awesome about those old classic sci fi films. My dad and I used to watch them together all the time.

  20. Upside down ball sac? Yes, that's the perfect description! ;) I love the look of this sort of old movie.
