Adventureblog Theater: Message from Space

It's unheard of now, but when Star Wars was originally in theaters, it stayed there for about a year. We didn't have no DVDs or video tapes to watch over and over again. If you wanted to see it again, you went back to the theater.

But eventually it had to leave, and that left me and a lot of other kids looking for something to fill the hole in our little, nerdy lives. I hoped beyond hope that Message from Space might be it.

It wasn't.

I wish this was on Region 1 DVD...

No, really. I do.

I'd put it on the shelf next to STARCRASH, BATTLE BEYOND THE STARS, THE WAR IN SPACE, and THE SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME (the 70's one).

Oh, don't get me wrong. It was a horrible disappointment compared to Star Wars, but there was a big part of me that enjoyed it for its cheesiness and I'd love to see it again.

I'd probably even buy it if only because its such a powerfully vivid connection to my childhood.
