The production quality of the actual interview leaves something to be desired. I think both men were there facing each other, but the shots of Sereda show him against a white background while Aykroyd looms in front of a shadowy background, with all manner of strange close-ups and camera angles of him interspersed throughout. To my eyes, at least, the presentation sometimes takes on the look of a mockumentary, especially when Aykroyd lights up a cigarette.
Since the topics cover a wide range of issues, from space shuttle sightings to alien abduction to parallel dimensions to Men in Black and beyond, you almost need to have at least a basic background in the history of UFOs and alien literature to put some of what is discussed in a proper context.Read more ›
Dan Aykroyd and ufologist David Sereda chat semi-formally on UFOs while we're shown sightings, related footage, and testimony. It's an interesting mix of hyped production and a frank down-to-earth discussion which seems to work. Some of the info was new to me and worth seeing, such as Hellyer, the Canadian Defense Minister, testifying. Personally I find Aykroyd to be a likable fellow and a great presenter. He is, afterall, a MUFON spokesman, and his beleif is based on his own UFO experiences which he also discusses.
Sereda compares Aykroyd to 'Einstein', 'genius', 'professor' and 'one of the great minds of our time'. I have my doubts, and Aykroyd admits himself that he's not even a scientist, but neverthess he does come across as intelligent, articulate and knowledgeable about Physics and UFO's. Sereda, doing a fair job, throws in some of his own research ideas in too, and why not?
As is typical with this genre, the footage gets a bit repetative, and there could have been more. And I'll never understand the obsession of over-zooming into footage until you see only a useless blured blob.
Mostly a joy to watch, this film also got a few unbelieving friends thinking and talking about UFOs. Aykroyd and Sereda should be proud of this little UFO production. Well done Dan and Dave!
