SCI-FI INVASION SET


Four sci-fi movies from days of yore!! Not sure why
the "invasion" part of this set, as most of these
movies have nothing to do with invasion!!


WARNING FROM SPACE(1956):

This movie is also on the Sci-Fi Set #1!

A very typical movie from Japan! Planet's in peril,
and some aliens from another planet come to try
to save us, cause if we are destroyed, so will
their planet be! Not terrible, but not the best! C+

A review from Amazon.com:

This is the kind of thing I would watch when I had
time to waste as a kid: it has monsters (kind of
waddling stars with an eye in the middle), quirky
details (they choose Japan to communicate with
earthlings), and a bigger theme (don't want to play
the spoiler, but it isn't what you're led to think).

The execution is laughably clunky - campy and yet
not so bad that it spoils the concept. The acting
is also mediocre, but passable. Recommended,
even if it is not classic, for afficianados of good
bad scifi. - Robert J. Crawford

ASSIGNMENT OUTER SPACE(1961)

This is not too bad. While not a true classic, this
is fairly entertaining and was worth a watch!
But really not much more than that! C+

A review from Amazon.com:

I had a good time. The movie has some unique
moments. The space hotty is hot. My partner
wants to know why/has pointed out . . . there
are no fat girls in space.(?)

I am obsessed with watching as many of these
old space movies as I can find. I don't know why.

I don't think I need to own it but I would watch
it again some time.

Thanks Amazon. More old space movies please.

I don't know why. - Barkingmad

VOYAGE TO THE PREHISTORIC PLANET(1965):

This is pretty fun, albeit a little disjointed!!
Basil Rathbone is not really in this much, but
what he is in is good! The rest of the cast does
a decent job, with a script that isn't the best.
The special effects are pretty decent and the
movie kept my interest! B-

A review from an Amazon.com customer:

The sly humor of this movie made me laugh
from start to finish, and I thoroughly enjoyed
the chemistry between David O'Hara and Janeane
Garofalo.

The story is pretty straightforward, but thanks
to a wonderful supporting cast, beautiful scenery,
and great music, the viewer is kept interested all
the way to the end.

Well worth adding to your movie collection. - A Customer

COSMOS WAR OF THE PLANETS(1977):

There are great sci-fi movies, then there are
mediocre sci-fi movies! Then there are those
sci-fi movies that are so bad that they're great!
This movie doesn't fit any of these catagories!!!
This is really so bad that it's terrible!!! Very
disjointed, bad acting, bad script, bad, bad
bad!!! F

A review from Amazon.com:

It's a rare jem. It's earned a place on my
comedy charts above Speed 2. And that's
saying something special. If you want trippy
sci-fi that makes you piss yourself laughing,
buy it, don't think, just enjoy. - Basil
