Re: Ice by E.S Strout

Plot summary for
My Science Project (1985)

Michael and Ellie break into a military junkyard to find a science project for Michael's class, and discover a strange glowing orb which absorbs electricity. When the orb begins to blend past, present, and future, its up to Michael and Ellie to stop the orb and save mankind. Written by Michael Silva {}

I suppose the presence of Dennis Hopper as a hippie science teacher (named Bob Roberts!) qualifies the movie as a classic of sorts ... the inclusion of a geeky guy who knows a lot about assault weapons and grenade launchers is a little disturbing in (post-Columbine et al.) retrospect, and gives the flick a little extra bite.

viz. also the recent British miniseries "Primeval", and the rather awful recent movie "based on" "A Sound of Thunder".
