From the early days of HBO
5 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you grew up in the late 70's / early 80's and had access to HBO when it first arrived on the scene, you've probably seen this parody of Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind. This was made around the same time as "Hardware Wars!" and exhibits the same independent creativity that made HW! such a classic. This film cleverly uses animation and puppetry along with bad acting to weave a compelling story of drama, suspense, and good old fashioned pie-in-the-face comedy. Where else can you see a barbershop quartet of mailboxes or Darth Vader on a motorcycle? While this film is hard to locate, it is floating around out there and resourceful people should be able to find it. Watch it again and remember laughing out loud the first time you saw it.
