INVADERS FROM MARS (1953)
I'd heard my great things about INVADERS FROM MARS over they years, but watching it now I can only assume that all of those people who said great things about this film actually saw it as a child when it first came out and it traumatized the shit out of them, cause this sucker bored the hell out of me. I was shocked at how cheap it looked. If this was the kind of film that was making money back in 1953 then I can see why Ed Wood, Jr. thought he could make movies! I'd watched PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE a dozen times before I watched this movie again.
Crap looking sets, stiff acting, boring pace, mountains upon mountains of stock footage of tanks driving around, silly looking aliens. I would imagine kids today would claw their eyes out if they had to watch this. Good as a historical curiosity only.
