There's so little focus to any of it that the end of the movie forgets what the beginning of the movie set out to say.

Audience Reviews for Monsters from the Id

I was totally digging on this movie for the longest time, as it was chronically the parallels between sci-fi science and real-life science during the 1950s. I loved seeing clips of old sci-fi movies that I had never gotten a chance to see before and learning how the goofy technologies in those movies were very similar to present-day not-so-goofy technologies. About 2/3 of the way through, however, this documentary became a shameless public service announcement crying out to the world that we are in need of more scientists or our world will crumble into the dark ages. The message is all right and good and everything, but I felt that there was a better place for it to be spread than in an otherwise fun documentary.
