Manos...it's frightening!


« on: February 04, 2008, 09:07:25 AM »

I caught this one on AMC this last Saturday afternoon and didn't expect it to be all that good; boy was I surprised!  Of course, it's hard to top Kubrick's classic 2001 but this was really good.

Sure, the whole Cold War thing was a change of direction from the first and some parts were rather hokey (80s n all) but overall, it was a good sequel, although it seemed to be more of a spinoff/what-if than a sequel.

The most effective part for me was when they were trying to board the spinning, derelict Discovery in the depths of Space -that was pretty intense.  I also liked the ending regarding HAL. 

Good stuff.

I liked that movie a lot as well.  The plot was quite clever and the lead actor (can't remember his name at the moment) did an excellent job.

just got this a few days back, the actor is 'roy schieder'

some of the sfx are dated but a good one overall, and HAL asking if he'll dream always brings a tear

I haven't seen it this one since I was a teenager. I remember it was very entertaining and not dense at all, specially when compared to the original.

Due to the horrifying nature of this film, no one will be admitted to the theatre.

    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.
