Title: really cheap set of dvds
Post by: Wayne Higgins on March 07, 2012, 01:46:48 PM
I got a $10 set of 50 movies, the Sci-fi invasion set.  The reason was that "Galaxina" and "The Brother From Another Planet" were in the set.  "The Brother From Another Planet" is one of the best sci-fi flicks ever.  Very low budget, but great.

I saw that Brother From Another Planet was on Netflix, I guess I should watch it sometime.

Brother From Another Planet--that one brings back memories from college days.  I remember liking it, even with the modest budget.   I also remember Sayles' Return of the Secaucus Seven, though that one was not sci-fi.

Anyone remember "Morons From Outerspace"? Low budget British film about intergalactic trailer trash crash landing on earth. As you can tell more comedy then straight scifi. 

"Brother From Another Planet" is a really good film, but I wouldn't call it one of the best scifi flicks ever, but it is well worth seeing.

Ok, maybe not the "best", but pretty damn good.  More creative than the "remakes" hollywood continues to bomobard us with.  "Morons from Outerspace" is also in the set.  I got the set at a Walmart.

For some reason the Morcheeba song that has the line "Brother From Another Planet" keeps going through my head every time I read this thread.   It's off their "Big Calm" album.
