Us And Them

battle-in-outer-space

Anybody else out there always wondered why space stations in science fiction movies usually look like roulette wheels? This space opera from Godzilla godfather Ishiro Honda doesn’t answer that question…but check it out anyway. Little aliens in flying saucers from the planet Natal (for some reason, American scientists still haven’t discovered that one) attack said station…and of course you know, this means war! The story and characters (3 of which were already in The Mysterians) are pretty generic but the miniature sets, space ships, etc. are exquisitely crafted and beautifully shot, a visual feast for connoisseurs of practical FX…
