I've read verticaly-oriented videos are becoming more popular with marketers who want to reach people on cellphones, & that it's hard for cinematographers to adjust their thinking, to produce videos in anything but a landscape orientation.

    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.
