Classic Movie Review – The Andromeda Strain

I read this book a few years back and decieded to check out the film adaptation.   Suprisingly, the film version is very close to the novel and is quite fun to watch.   This movie would never be made today and would not be able to hold the typical movie goer audience.   It is way to smart,  there is nothing like watching scientists solve thier problems on the big screen.

I definitely recommend checking it out just for the good old school computer footage.
