Ray Harryhausen's stop-motion animation is a real visual treat in Earth vs. the Flying Saucers, but the alien design is stellar also. This still remains one of those science fiction movies you should watch at a drive-in or on a big screen, with popcorn and a Coke. It's quintessential 1950s UFO paranoia smartly captured in a quickly moving story. Yes, it has stock footage; yes, it has that odd, semi-documentary approach that some 1950s movies belabored their stories with (The Mole People being the worst example of this), but it's still entertaining and it's still fun.
