Crop And Save
Every generation deserves a good giant insect flick, and this one is no better or worse. In it, A space shuttle testing arachnids in space crashes, causing giant mutant spiders to escape and attack a laboratory. Passable flick has okay acting and fair direction. Some of the special effects are good, some aren't. The make-up effects and animatronic spider were good, but the few CGI shots were quite cartoony and uneven. Could have been much worse.
Rated R for profanity, gore, and some mild creature violence.
Great TV movie!
Awesome flick! superb actors, great special effects (especially for the giant sea monster), and competently written script make this a must-see for fans of the show! A great musical score as well.
Tepid and uneven.
A group of genetically engineered raptors and a Tyranosaurus rex escape a lab and cause mayhem on a small town. Scene-by-scene rip-off of "carnosaur" (witch was much worse), and sports so-so dinosaur effects (Though some of the raptors looked okay) and weak acting (Especially from Eric Roberts, Julia Roberts less talented brother) and a predictable ending. Originally concieved as a "carnosaur 4", this film won't appeal to many genre fans.
Rated R for Gore, sexuality, violence, profanity, and nudity.
King Dinosaur (1955)
Wonderfully cheesy sci-fi film about a group of space explorers that get trapped on a planet called nova, where they are attacked by various monsters and alien creatures. Enjyably cheesy low-budget opus is full of bad effects (lizards dressed in frills, elephants that have rugs on them to make them look like mammoths, cheap-looking giant ants, etc.) and the film is full of terrible acting and a rotten script, as well as a plot that's been done to death. Despite all these uneven flaws and gapping continuity, this film manages to be an entertaining little dino-fest that sci-fi fans will enjoy. Worth renting on DVD.
The Last Dinosaur (1977)
Hilariously stinky piece of drek about a group of explorers that run into a not-so-terrifying tyransosaurus when exploring the amazon. Great fun for genre fans, with bad acting and special effects that are so tacky that you'll love them!
Rated PG for thematic elements and mild peril.
Very well done and ambitious.
A group of aliens land on earth and are attacked by the goverment. Very well made and accomplished little sci-fi thriller, free of anything offensive, with strong performances and extremely nice FX (the film uses more miniatures than actual locations) and some decent stop-motion.
If you can find it to rent, I strongly sudgets you track it down. Good acting, Nice F/X, a good plot and fine direction.
***1/2 stars out of *****.
Rated R for profanity and some sci-fi violence.
Mysterious Island (1961)
4 stars out of 5.
A group of people are stranded on a island full of various monsters after a hot-air balloon crashes. Faithful adaption of jules Vern's classic story has a few pacing problems, but that is made up for with creative special effects, cool monsters, and a enthralling musical score. One of Ray Harryhausen's best films. Recommended to fan's of stop-motion and fantasy films.
Rated PG for peril, and some sci-fi action.
Can of Worms (1999)
Not bad, actually.......
I expected this too be a cheap Tv-quicky, but actually, it wasn't too bad. I'll start with saying the good things about it: The special effects are great, and all the creatures looked very cool, performances were adequate. the cons: by the numbers characters and plot, a script that seemed to fall apart by the finale third. I'd recommend it if you are a FX wiz with some time to kill. Great effects, okay acting, and fair enough direction.
Horror of the Blood Monsters (1970)
Pure crap.....but lots of fun.
A group of people find themself abandoned on a planet inhabited by evil monsters. Lackluster effects and acting make this low-budget independent horror-science fiction entry one for b-movie fans to sink there teeth into. The iguanas wearing fake tusks are a hoot! I give this film 3 stars out of 5. Nothing great, but still pleanty of fun that genre fans will be able to appreciate on a tongue-in-cheeck level, just don't take it too seriously and you will have a good time.
Not rated, containing nothing violent or offensive.
Fair. *small spoilers*
A town is attacked by a director's monster he featured in a film years before. Every three years it wakes-up for 2 days to feed off of locals and tourists. Competently made horror film, boasting a cool monster (A giant, tentacle flinging, sharp-toothed creature who looks reminicent of the creatures we saw in 50's monster flicks) and decent enough performances and direction. Although I usually hate CGI, I must admit that the CGI the effects crew used for this film for the beast is actually pretty good, especially when it is first shown.
The film isn't great, but had a fun feel to it and I can recommend it if you have 90 minutes to spear. (***)
