One of my favorites. I finally got to crack open the blu-ray copy I bought ages ago. I am a little disappointed that it seems like I got the crappy version of the blu-ray and not the re released one though.
I wasn't planning on watching this for the challenge but it was on TV earlier today and I haven't seen it in ages. The nostalgia oozing through this movie is awesome.
This movie is essentially a white Urkel in space. Harlen Williams even has his very own "Did I do that?" type catch phrase. I always loved this movie when I was younger and it still brings back fond memories. Sure some of the laughs can be crude but how can you not love Harlen Williams painting The creation of Adam with him as god and Ulysses the monkey as adam, just plain awesome.
Finally a first time view, what the hell took me so long. I'm not sure how I've never seen this movie because it was right up my alley. Its a fun ride from start to finish and it was made the year I was born, Bonus Points!
I'm a little torn on this one. On one hand I found parts of the movie very enjoyable. On the other I know exactly how overhyped this movie is because it's really not that great. Sure some parts are exciting but overall the movie is just mediocre. It's hard to describe, I want to like it more but I just know it's not deserving.
For some reason I remember this being a lot funnier when I first saw it in theaters. Not that it was necessarily bad I just remember getting a lot more laughs the first time around.
I know this might seem like a blasphemous score but upon my first viewing I'm really just not seeing the major appeal to this movie. Sure the acting is great and Kubrick obviously knows what he's doing being a camera but the rest? I don't know something just didn't click the way I had imagined it would. I think this is a movie I need to watch a couple more times.
I really enjoyed this time travel flick. It's got some great suspense and unlike most time travel movies it wraps things up pretty nicely. Now I know some people dislike this movie and honestly I can understand why. It's very simple, but I believe that's the point and it works for me. If you're interested in time travel flicks I think this one is at least worth checking out.
Blu-ray or high def viewing
First time viewing
