The Philadelphia Experiment

  • Film
  • Science fiction
A time-travel yarn of the 'past arrives in the present' persuasion. Two WWII sailors involved in some early radar experiment tumble through the decades into 1984. The 'what the hell's happened?' passages are, as usual, more diverting than the 'what the hell can we do about it?' scenes, the latter involving merely flashing lights, showers of sparks and talk of imploding vortexes. Much more fun is the spectacle of Young 1943 trying to work out why the US President looks vaguely familiar, and how come the folks in the diner are hardly glancing at a television, on which a noisy monster is assaulting a bare-breasted starlet.

The Hundoggie-da-Boy

It was good in 84 and still is! Just my opinion. I recorded it back then, put it on DVD, now I can't remember the last one to borrow it. It has made its rounds. Anyway it is well worth viewing, maybe not 50-100 times, but once is good.

Another 'True Story'. This one, I can well believe when you read the story behind it! Sligtly dramatized as you would expect but wow, if that was possible in the forties it makes you wonder what there doing now!!! It's rater oddly cast, but worth a watch. The ending is really disappointing - far too predictable!!
