Money to burn!!!!
This movie rocks!
Okay, I know it’s dated. know what?? I Don’t care! This kind of movie making would put half the people in Hollywood out of work today. Maybe that’s not such a bad thing. They did it right in the early days. They had their priorities right:
Then Special effects
Seems simple, doesn’t it? How come they can’t get it right today? (with few exceptions, of course). Nope, today it’s Special effects, stars, then story…. in fact, even the stories aren’t original!!!
This sums up why I like this movie so much and many like it from the same era. They’re exciting, fun, and captivating. The kind of movie that leaves you thinking, dreaming, having nightmares, all in the name of fun. You’re left dreaming of what it would be like, how you’d react, what you’d do. You’d sit and ponder about a new life on a new planet. And not once would the level of special effects tarnish your view of this gem.
When was the last time you felt that way coming out of a modern movie? My guess is a lonnnnnng time. There are very few exceptions today. The special effects in movies like “Worlds” was icing on the cake… BUT IT WAS THE CAKE THAT MATTERED! Today, it’s all icing and the cake can’t support it (crappy icing, in fact!!)
Eat your cake and have it too! Watch “When Worlds Collide”!
For Its Genre, This Is Surprising How Good It Is – Nice Effort!
First, this is a nice-looking film with a good DVD transfer. Seeing an early ’50s sci-fi film Technicolor is nice.
Also, having just watched – I’m not kidding – “Plan 9 From Outer Space” and “Invaders From Mars,” this George Pal film looked like multi-million dollar Oscar winner in comparison. Except for the ending scene, the special-effects were passable, the acting was good and the dialog pretty realistic. The story plausible? Of course not, but what they did know of space travel in 1951? Hell, we didn’t send a man on the moon until almost 20 years after this movie. No, this is not one of those popcorn flicks that “is so bad, it’s good” or just plaint stink. No, this movie is just good……period….even today, almost 57 years later!.
This was a no-nonsense survival story without an overdone corny romance, no stupid or obnoxious kids nor goofy-looking adults. It had a solid reverence for God and to science at the same time, a realistic portrayal of people under stress and how they would react knowing their world was coming to end. For a mostly talky film, it moved fast with few, if any lulls.
John Hoyt, who plays the wheelchair-bound millionaire “Sydney Stanton,” may not be a “name” actor but he’s very good. Check his resume: it’s awesome. The man was in about every good television show for decades. The man could act. So did the rest of this cast.
Overall, this “modern” Noah’s Ark story was a good one, and far, far better than your normal sci-fi flicks from the time period. Well done!
