A Blast To The Past......
16 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I rated this film an "excellent" rating primarily because this was such an unusual film when I first saw this. Yes, I saw this first when I was 15. Oh well.....

Granted, this was a very crudely made and not very well produced film. However I'm sure that the filmmakers were quite aware of this. For their part, what they lacked in production value they made up, in spades, was in originality. This was an era that was before the internet, and before digital video. This, in retrospect, was not really "cheaply made". I'm sure, (from personal experience), that whenever anyone sneezed, it was a production "setback"!! Ha ha! However, these guys truly loved what they were spoofing and it shows. I'm sure they wouldn't have made this if they weren't passionate about the source material. Very funny stuff, especially for those who were there when the original Spielberg classic came out that rainy weekend (in Hollywood-Cinerama Dome).

Great stuff!

It hearkens back to the time when the "mysterious" making of films were a passion for a lot of film fans (as myself) out there and how many of us were desperately waiting for the next film or films of some of our generations' best filmmakers. Again, films such as this, while a parody, brings back how skillful the filmmakers of the 70's and 80's were so insightful to make such a serious approach to the entertainment of the film fans of the time (and of the future).

Thanks for reading!

For those 40somethings, you may remember this film. For those younger film fans, hopefully you will see an insight of how the SF/Fantasy/Horror film fans of this era were looking to the future and how the more fantastic stories were within the realm of reality (as it is now) for future films, even now. Cheers everyone!

p.s. I don't expect ANYONE to actually read this review. Ha ha! :-)
