AROUND THE WORLD UNDER THE SEA (1966)
I'm sure ATWUTS was geared towards kids (and I'm not the biggest fan of older kids movies), but I was at least hoping for some exciting adventure. No. All of the underwater locations all over the world looked exactly the same, there was absolutely no feeling of being in a new location, the submarine set was dark and boring, the underwater miniatures looked fake as hell, pointless side story about some underwater treasure, bad dialogue, plot holes galore, topless Lloyd Bridges.
I'm sure people who saw this as an impressionable child still have fond memories of ATWUTS, but as an adult and a first time viewer I was bored senseless. Skip it was a vengeance.
