I want to see this again
17 November 2006 | by IceBerg2076See all my reviews

I remember seeing this film as a Saturday afternoon Matinée on a UHF channel in OK when I was a kid. I remember bits and pieces of the story, but what I really wanted were those awesome glasses from the Future, that let a Person see various frequencies of Light, and energy. I still wish I could get a pair of Glasses like those. I wasn't as entertained by the story as I was intrigued by the Future Tech toys that I was sure would be invented as I grew up. Oh well.

As a guilty Pleasure for my Sci-Fi mind, and imagination, I'd like to see it on DVD with a commentary by Bill Maher. I can't remember how it ends, so Please would someone release it to DVD.
