Curse Of The Swamp Creature

Curse Of The Swamp Creature is a sci-fi/horror film from 1966. The plot while decent leaves a lot to be desired. For one the movie is fairly slow pace and I found myself laughing more at how ridiculous some scenes are. At times the lines feel forced leaving little attachment to any character. The best part of the movie was the special effects. They are comical and makes the film at little more bearable. If you want a bad sci-fi horror film this is the one for you. Bottom Line…

The Snow Creature

This film is rather crazy and definitely stuck in time. There isn’t much plot other than finding a snow creature and bring it back to the states. The film is really a yeti version of King Kong minus the classic animation. There isn’t much to say about the film it lacks any real substance and the character development doesn’t exist. If you’re looking for a cheesy D rated sci-fi film this is the one for you. Bottom Line (Warning Contains Spoilers) There isn’t much to spoil about this film. A…

The Core

The Core is one of those disaster movies where most of the film relies on special effects and CG to make it good. While at the time of the films release the special effects would be amazing however now it severely hampers its longevity. Even now the film is dated and painful to get through. The acting is both a mix of terrible and great causing significant lulls which are hard to power through the film. Another issue is the technology is fairly outdated making the film feel older than…

Equinox

This film is an amazing work of cinematography. From start to end Equinox delivers a great and intriguing plot that provides twist after twist. The best part is all of the stop motion animation and special effects. While not up to today’s cg it still is a visual treat and makes the film worth watching. The plot really is different and unique making it a standout film. While there are some slow and cheesy points the overall quality of the film is amazing and a must see for any sci-fi…

A Trip To The Moon

This short 15 minute 1902 film is quite interesting as it is a great example of some early cinema. While by today’s standards all the sudo-science is quite out of date what really should be focused on is the special effects and the structures of early cinema. It is a great film and while rather hilarious now it is a timeless classic that deserves at least one watch.

World Of Tommorow

Comically depressing sci-fi is the best way to describe the short World Of Tomorrow. The animation is lack luster on characters but it is a stylistic choice, because the background is elaborate and quite interesting. It is a great juxtaposition and helps even make plot and story line even more heavy. If you want a happy go lucky film about the future of the human race look else where. This film is depressing and deep. It’s well worth a watch if you want something different and tired of the typical…

Journey To The Center Of The Earth

This adaptation of the Jules Verne book is not only classic, but also has many comical elements to it. If you’re looking for state of the art special effects this film isn’t for you. The monsters and molten lava are laughable now. The acting is funny and somewhat cheesy. That being said it definitely has real merit and decent pacing that can keep the viewer engaged. This is a great B grade science fiction film and a great film to watch when you want something a little more light hearted….

Jackrabbit

Jackrabbit is a post apocalyptic sci-fi film that will make any die hard sci-fi fan sit on the edge of their seat in both anticipation and rage. The film has an amazing concept and special effect. However at certain points the film lacks emotional depth and character development that makes the latter half of Jackrabbit somewhat painful and hard to get through. This is due to a combination of poor dialogue and acting. The film shares some similarities to The Matrix and 2001, however the issue with pacing and convoluted…

The Phantom Speaks

Sudo-science is plentiful in The Phantom Speaks. If you are familiar with the classic Donovan’s Brain then the idea of the film is quite similar. The plot is great with wonderful pacing and while the special effects might feel cheesy they help make The Phantom Speaks even better. I love this era of films they are timeless and while most would consider this film more of a C rate film I would give it an A. It is worth a watch and honestly I want to own this film. It…

Meet The Robinsons

After seeing this film and Wall-E it is clear that sci-fi is not the best thing for Disney to make. I understand that the film is meant for kids however the time paradoxes that are created in the movie are truly mind-boggling. That being said there several funny scenes in the film that kind of make up for the bizarre plot. If you’re not a die hard sci-fi fan then this movie is worth a watch. Bottom Line (Warning Contains Spoilers) Honestly this film makes my head hurt. The plot…
