I was about to be 8 years old, sitting on Markie Greene's front porch enjoying my summer vacation.
I'm probably going to blaspheme in a lot of people's eyes here, but I never really liked Elvis.
I'm of one mind with Eddie Murphy.  Elvis couldn't sing or act. 
I can't fault the man for not being able to act.  I can't either.
I CAN, and DO fault him for not being able to sing or play the guitar that he always had.
I do this not to rile anyone up, and not to be contrary.  I fault him for this because he was a musical recording artist and had no real ability to do so.  Much like a large number of today's "artists".
Elvis had one encompassing thing going for him.  His delivery.
His physical delivery need not even be mentioned.  We've all heard mention of Elvis' pelvis and the nick names that accompanied such.
A lot of Elvis' delivery was in his presence.  That's a no brainer.
The rest came from the way he put his songs out.  Much like Johnny Cash (who was actually and literally tone deaf), Elvis could just deliver a song in such a way that you really didn't have much choice but to like it.

Oh well.  Let the flaming begin.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
