Latitude Zero

While this is a movie that I had seen, it was as a young child, and it almost felt as if it was a fever-dream. It wasn’t until an offhand comment on a YouTube video that I realized that this was indeed a real movie that I needed to rewatch ASAP. We live in a wonderful time, because not even ten minutes later, I had a copy ready to play for our afternoon movie. I was cheesy, full of bad acting, visible strings on miniatures, and a crazy kaiju. Long story short… I LOVED IT! It won’t be for everyone, but it is a fun watch. Bellow I’ve posted Brandon Tenold’s review of the film, then from the Internet Archive, the film itself. Judge for yourself.

Brandon’s Cult Movie Reviews: Latitude Zero (REUPLOAD)

I adore this film. It’s both fun, funny, yet it’s also very cool. I dig what they were trying to do with the story. I think remake could really do well and I would be there for it.

Logan’s Run was the most ambitious science fiction film made at the time. Bare in mind this was 1 year before Star Wars dominated the big screen. So their depiction of a futuristic society is a bit more cheesy with a space age soundtrack from Jerry Goldsmith, colorful costumes, and clean sets made from repurposed […]

The contrast between the sanitized existence of the dome to the outside world is wonderful. I also enjoy Box and how he would preserve the Runners. I didn’t see this one in the theaters, I caught it on television in 1978, after Star Wars was a daily staple in my life. Saying that, it was interesting for me until they made it outside. After that, it lost me. Now, I adore this film and love to pop it in every now and then. Check out Master Mix Movies’ entry on this sci-fi classic.

How the Cancelled UFO Series 2 Became Space:1999

I knew that UFO and Space:1999 had deeper connections than just the creatives who produced the two shows, but I had no idea that Space:1999 was actually built on a planned season two of UFO. I like both shows about equally. Not to say I am a rabid fan, but I’ll watch them from time to time. I have both series on my Plex server, but they really don’t make it into my regular viewing rotation. It’s not that I don’t get into the British style programs; I dig Doctor Who, the color seasons of the Avengers, and the Prisoner… to name a few. I am no stranger to quirky pacing in television programs. I am not a fan of “Super-Marination” at all, but I do appreciate that it really inspired a ton of Japanese production’s creativity.

Ultraman Teleports

This is a wonderful figure that I seem to have missed out on from 2020. Honestly, at roughly $100 (USD) I wouldn’t have considered picking up in the first place. I do love the concept though. Ultraman didn’t use teleportation all that much, so this is a very unique look for the character. Tap the photo above for more details.
