78. The Monster That Challenged the World

by: MGM (Video & DVD)
Release date: Aug 28, 2001
Run Time: 83 minutes
Rated: G (General Audience)
Find in Library
Read Review
A highlight among 1950s creature-features, The Monster That Challenged the World is a near-classic B movie that never goes out of style. When an earthquake reveals a nest of giant, prehistoric sea mollusks at the bottom of California’s Salton Sea, the local body count skyrockets. Navy lietenant Twillinger (Tim Holt) takes command, assisting the obligatory scientist (Hans Conreid) while wooing the June Cleaver wanna-be (Barbara Darrow) who inevitably tangles with the monster–a flailing caterpillar-like beastie with snapping mandibles and a voracious appetite. With a moment of vintage gross-out (“Get the eye! Get the eye!”), well-handled suspense, and the requisite balance of tepid romance and sci-fi jargon, this is a prime companion to any film in the atomic-monster lineup. The aging Holt made only two more movies after this (following a thriving career in Westerns), but he gives Monster his best shot and comes up a winner. –Jeff Shannon

83. When Worlds Collide [VHS]

by: Paramount

Run Time: 83 minutes
Rated: G (General Audience)
Find in Library
Read Review
Winner of the 1951 Academy Award for Best Special Effects, this science fiction extravaganza set a new standard for the realistic depiction of cinematic disasters. Of course, it’s a quaint curiosity by today’s technological standards, but as produced by visual effects pioneer George Pal, this story of Earth’s collision with a runaway star is still a dazzling example of screen sci-fi from the ’50s, when special effects were entering a new stage of advancement. Despite scientists’ warnings about the star’s destructive potential, government officials refuse to take action that could cause international panic, but a consortium of private industrialists prepare for the worst by building a gigantic spaceship–an ark for humanity to begin life anew on a distant planet. Who will be chosen to go, and who left behind? As earthquakes roar and massive tidal waves devastate entire cities, the huge rocket prepares for take-off from its miles-long launching ramp–ready to abandon the shattered Earth! Although it’s more enjoyable now as a cinematic museum piece, When Worlds Collide remains a milestone of its kind, leading the way for many more screen disasters that followed this movie’s still-worthy example. –Jeff Shannon

90. The Original Voltron, Defenders of the Universe – Fleet of Doom, The Alliance Strikes Back (Vol. 1) [VHS]

by: Vidmark / Trimark
Release date: Nov 07, 2000
Rated: G (General Audience)
Find in Library
Read Review
Voltron: Defender of the Universe was actually two early mecha series, “Lion Force Voltron” and “Vehicle Team Voltron,” cut together for syndication on American television in 1984-85. Tied to the merchandising of the robot toys, the show scored a big hit. Sixteen years later, it looks very dated. The Japanese designers and effects artists had yet to hit their stride, and the characters show the clear influence of the American Saturday morning programs of Hanna-Barbera and Filmation. In this version, there are two teams of five pilots whose lion-space ships join to form the mighty Voltron battle robots. Keith, Allura, Hunk, Pidge, and Lance remain at the center of the story, battling the evil, reptilean King Zarkon, his equally evil but humanoid son, Lotor, and their various minions, including the witch Haggar. These two episodes are divided between sermons from the pilots about kindness and pitched space battles with Zarkon’s skull-ships. Conflicts and revolts occur so quickly, they end before they really begin. Defender of the Universe has a special interest for nostalgic baby boomers and otaku curious to understand the origins of anime fandom in the U.S. But the average viewer may find the series hasn’t aged particularly gracefully. Not rated: suitable for ages 7 and up for violence, mostly robots and space ships attacking each other. –Charles Solomon

Inspired by a classic video game, the animated Zoids comes with a ready-made and uniquely appealing story line and characters. Set on the desert planet Zi, where mechanized robot beasts known as Zoids are piloted by humans in fierce battles against one another, this episodic anime adventure series centers on a 16-year-old junk dealer named Bit Cloud. The unlikely choice of a catlike Zoid hero named Liger Zero to be the latter’s intuitive pilot, Bit becomes a champion fighter for the warrior group Team Blitz. The four tales on this program explore Bit and Liger’s feats of derring-do, as well as Bit’s struggle for acceptance by his teammates. The fights are fun, the romantic conflicts are juicy, and Liger’s courageous heart is a thing to behold. The show plays regularly on the Cartoon Network. –Tom Keogh

93. Son of Godzilla [VHS]

Rated: G (General Audience)

Read Review
The monster-about-town becomes doting dad when he adopts orphan lizard Minilla, the result of a radioactive storm caused by a scientific experiment gone wrong. This decidedly juvenile affair shows signs of the series’ cost-cutting measures and Godzilla himself has been redesigned to reflect his new, younger audience, with an oversize head and big, doll-like eyes. This kindler, gentler lizard king proceeds to protect the happy-go-lucky kid from the newly mutated giant insects of the island and teaches him how to breathe fire. Much of the film is played for comedy–Minilla blowing smoke rings instead of flames, skipping rope with Dad’s tail, skittering about like a mischievous little kid as put-upon Godzilla tries to keep the tyke focused–and is obviously aimed at Godzilla’s enormous adolescent audience. But as always, the picture delivers great monster battles, notably with the mutant spider giant Kumonga. –Sean Axmaker

Rated: G (General Audience)

Read Review
“Fifty million stars in our galaxy have the potential of supporting life forms capable of traveling to other planets,” says world-renowned authority Erich von Daniken, whose film version of his best- selling book, CHARIOTS OF THE GODS, gives stunning visual proof that some form of life from outer space landed on Earth centuries ago. It took five years for von Daniken to document, on film, the physical evidence of visits by galactic travelers who came to Earth. Just what they did here and the influences they left behind is the core of the film. In search of basic truths, the film, CHARIOTS OF THE GODS, takes the viewer into the far reaches of underground caves and tombs, and to the tops of desolate mountains on every major continent to show the evidence von Daniken has been collecting. Although this controversial film may provide the answers to age old mysteries, it may be the beginning of an entirely new set of questions. Bonus Features: Scene Selection, Photo Gallery, Bio on Erich von Daniken, Trailer. Specs: DVD5; Dolby Digital Mono; 90 minutes; Color; 1.33:1 Aspect Ratio; MPAA – G; Year – 1972.

Read Review
In this sequel to The Secret Garden, set in 1946, an American orphan named Lizzie (Camilla Belle) gets to live at Misselthwaite Manor in England courtesy of Mary Craven (Cherie Lunghi), who grew up there. It’s now an orphanage and Martha Sowerby (Joan Plowright) has become headmistress. Although the garden is no longer secret, neither is it as lush as it became under Mary’s care. Because Lizzie also has a green thumb, Miss Sowerby allows her to work on it during Sundays, but it’s off limits to children the rest of the week. Lizzie just can’t stay away, so she breaks the rules and gets in trouble. By the end, she has found a way–with Miss Sowerby’s permission–to make the garden bloom again. Although this film lacks the suspense of The Secret Garden, it’s faithful to the spirit of the original and is suitable for the whole family. –Kathleen C. Fennessy
