Recalling all those clumsy effects typical of fifties sci-fi films, the tin spaceships being pulled along by almost-invisible strings, I kept thinking about how impressed a 1950s audience would have been if they’d known what we could do by now – only to immediately realize, “actually, no. They wouldn’t be impressed at all, would they? They thought that we'd actually be doing this kind of thing by now. Not just figuring out more sophisticated ways to simulate it.”
