My notes for the Nukie DVD ~ not approved yet.

Along with the David Winters / Neal Sundstrom directed Space Mutiny, Nukie is a famous South African film of the 1980’s. Famous, yes but for all the wrong reasons unfortunately. Both the former and the latter productions were made ~ in the horrible terminology of the South African 1980’s ~ for ‘the international market’ and failed, both here and overseas. Nukie ~ an obvious take-off of the Steven Spielberg film ET The Extraterrestrial ~ deals with two aliens, Nukie and Miko who are at first visible as two stars that crash-land to earth and later, in a physical form described by one critic as “looking like a shaved Oscar The Grouch dipped in chocolate” and another as “the only baboon ugly enough to frighten his own kind” which pushes their resemblance to ET a lot closer.

Ostensibly a children’s film ~ indeed, it was praised at a children’s film festival in the late 1980s ~ Nukie is the story of two lost alien brothers whose spaceships crash land on different continents (one in America and the other in Africa) and their search to find each other all the while communicating through their minds. Nukie befriends ~ or tries to befriend ~ various animals en route to locating his brother and, while dodging the attentions of a drunken White Hunter, makes a connection with two young African boys who attempt to help Nukie in getting home.

The first summary's hilarious!
The second is funny too, I like the subtly of "the attentions of a drunk white hunter". Which children's festival was it praised at?

Thanks, N2. There was a children's film festival in Italy where kids were the judges and they expressed their liking or otherwise of a film by the length of time they let the film run. According to the report, Nukie stayed the course and they ran it several times.  Buggedout

That boggles my mind! I've heard about this movie sharing the crap out of little kids!
Wow, I hope their parents were nice people. Yeesh!

Say, does Sias Odendall happen to have any of these lying around...

I wonder If could get it autographed!

So, everybody is chasing him in the same Rover? Including the two boys, an elephant and a giraffe?

It's confusing isn't it!
I like how they have Nukie covering up his face, like they were unsure what he was going to look like.
Also note the hunter aiming his gun at Nukie, how wholesome, right?

When I watched the VHS we have of that film for the first time the other day, I wished I could have hired an editor to cut the negative in half.  Buggedout Buggedout

Howdy, Trevor, you're certain its zone "0" right? Even though it says "2" on Kalahari?
I think my player can do zone 2, but I'd have to mess with it.

I should know for sure by the middle of this month what region it is in and will let you know as soon as I do.  Smile

Nukie2 alerted me to the fact that the DVD was now available for purchase ~ thanks for that ~ but the releasing company chose not to use any of my information on the sleeves. Not fair and not nice.  Hatred Hatred

That said, Nukie is available and is playable on all players bearing the mark Zone Sh*t.   Hatred

Sorry about that Trevor, what total douches! I wonder how many other people have been strung along by submitting sleeve notes and info to them?
