Much Better Than Given Credit For
3 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A United Nations space expedition to the planet Uranus discovers a bizarre world right out of their own heads...

John Agar stars, which already gives this film a lot of weight for the classic science fiction crowd. And beyond that, this is something of a prescient film. Sure, we can insult its special effects and poor costumes, but take it for what it is.

I enjoyed the idea that in the future, the United Nations will be the sole governing body. I thought that was a very optimistic (and realistic) view. It was somewhat less realistic that we would visit all the planets searching for life, but as this was filmed before we went to the Moon, I am not sure what we did or did not know about space exploration at this time.

I also enjoyed the concept of your thoughts being used against you. I felt like this was a direct precursor to "Ghost Busters" in that respect, with the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man immediately coming to mind.
