Goofs

When the "Vacuum Cleaner of Doom" flies through the living room window, the curtains are partially open. Later, when Steve goes downstairs to get Jenny's doll, the curtains are closed (no one in the family could have closed them, since they've all been hiding in the upstairs bedroom). See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Grant Williams: [narrating] Hello? Hello? Can you hear me? Can anyone hear me? I don't know where I am. I don't know where I am in time. I don't know what century I'm in. There's a message that must get through if anyone can hear me. When I was out among you, I always believed, as you do, that time exists in a sequential pattern - one day following another; one year after another; each century following the previous one... but it's not like that at all.

Difficult to Fathom out but quite interesting
19 October 2003 | by Nicholas RhodesSee all my reviews

I found the picture quality a little on the dodgy side for a film that is supposed to have been made in 1980 (!!!) but a part from that the film was most enjoyable and the special effects very impressive, notably the "City of Light" that we see at the end ( absolutely beautiful ). One feels that this was a film primarily made for kids and there are some funny moments, especially when they send out a horse to distract the prehistoric monster.

I don't claim for one minute to have understood all of the story, and I dont suppose the scriptwriter did either, but the juxtaposition of a very earthy desert and occasional and effective special effects is a good recipe for fun. I think I'll have to watch it a few more times to understand all the details but my impression on first viewing is a very positive one, except for picture quality ( unfortunately I am over obsessed with image quality and expect on DVD to have a superb image - alas this is not always the case, and I often wonder who is at fault in this case - the original film or the quality of the transfer to DVD ) Now there's a million euro question !!!!!!!!!!!
