RIP Señor Nielson

Alta, about a million years from now the human race will have crawled up to where the Krell stood in their great moment of triumph and tragedy. And your father's name will shine again like a beacon in the galaxy. It's true, it will remind us that we are, after all, not God. -Commander Adams
Leslie Nielsen passed away today, and whereas his comedy can't be denied, let's not forget Forbidden Planet, a sci-fi staple that's so classic many don't even know it exists anymore. It's a solid movie, just know it's dated going into to it, and the commander, played by the late Nielsen predates James T. Kirk and everyone else. So here's to you Leslie, godspeed.


  1. I thought he was an excellent actor in both his comedy and regular films. This is a sad day indeed.

  2. He will be missed. A great actor, and a great man.
