OK. So I think it’s soup

If you are not in the US or Canada and this doesn’t work as well as it did, drop me a note here or email You will be getting movies from the mirror server in Germany. If that isn’t as good, let me know and I’ll switch you back. This should be a lot nicer in Europe.

Thephantomplanet Sci-Fi

Phantom Planet (1961)

Watching the movie is like watching an undiscovered episode of the original “Star Trek.” We have a rocket being pulled off course by a strange phenomenon; we have special effects of the most functional and basic kind; we have a strange planet populated by earthlike (albeit small) people, whose strengths and weaknesses are allegories of human strengths and weaknesses; we have a series of curvaceous women, a brash young man and an elderly wise leader in the alien society; we have a brawny hero who alternates between fighting, courting and moralizing.
