I was watching ‘Them,’ the first of the giant insect movies in the 1950’s, yesterday on AMC, and I got to thinking: Are there any modern day equivilants to this?
Back then, the controvercial technology was the Bomb. Of course, everyone knows the classic “Dr. Strangelove.” But there were plenty of B-movies dealing with the consequences of technology.
Today, the major technology that everyone’s concerned about is the Human Genome Project. Now, I could go into any number of discussions, but this isn’t GD. What I’m asking is, are there any modern movies (major or just B-movies) that deal with genetic engineering?
All I’ve thought of so far is Gattaca, which is excellent. There’s also Mimic, but that’s just another giant insect movie. Anyone?
