Journey to the 7th Planet

Dull and uninspired, this one is probably best forgotten. Unfortunately, in the early 2000s it appeared as a double feature on multiple DVDs, so it seems destined to survive. Watching it, you will get the idea that no one involved - not the director, special effects guys, or actors including John Agar - cared about what they were doing. It is actually quite remarkable that half a dozen actors with 75 minutes of film time barely register a single emotion. There is some decent camp, including spacesuit visors that resemble office supply trays. There is an angry stop-motion dinosaur that resembles a one-eyed Barney. There are flat lines such as: "The alien enemy is trying to destroy us with our stupidity and our weaknesses."

Don: "Well, at least we know it can be penetrated."
Eric: "Yes, and that's all we know."
