I Wish it Were a Series

I was so pleasantly surprised by this movie. No, it's not a blockbuster, people are too jaded for that. What it is though, is a campy, fun, loving trip through nostalgic monster movies of the 50's. It was clean. It was fun. I smiled all the way through it and laughed at the monster costume. I actually thought it was the first episode of a series and I was really excited that I'd found something new to watch. So when I realized it was a movie, I was disappointed. If you can't just be silly and enjoy simplicity, you are probably too solphisticated for this movie. But if you can do both, I think this is a winner. I will probably watch it again and look for all the treasures they likely added into the movie that I didn't notice the first time.
