Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956) 
Invasion of the Body Snatchers review
2.5/4 stars

"The world has gone crazy." One of the pioneering psychological science fiction that has been included by critics on their "best of movies" list. Dr. Dan Kauffman informs Miles that there is an epidemic of mass hysteria. Becky Driscoll and Dr. Miles Bennell has a dinner date while noticing people acting strangely. Miles sees a body double of Becky. Certain pods have been witnessed and certain speculations erupt. The score gives that the film the added suspense. Has a few insightful lines such as: "The mind is a strange and wonderful thing." "Love, desire, ambition, faith - without them, life's so simple, believe me." and "All of us, a little bit - we harden our hearts, grow callous. Only when we have to fight to stay human do we realize how precious it is to us, how dear." The film shows its dated features but the intent and plot was good. Only observation this reviewer had was the lack of a more enticing character and rationale of where the pods came from. The love angle was not built enough and the terror really not that portrayed. Nevertheless, the thrilling scenes were produced in an orderly fashion but not really rewatchable and memorable enough to make it a classic for its genre. Great in its era but slightly falters in this day of age.
