Editorial Reviews

It's groovy to be a spaceman! The way-out '60s meet the far-out 21st century in this psychedelic sci-fi head trip. Villains from u?berpowerful The Corporations think they'd found a way to defeat their rivals, the United Democracies: send robot minions to kidnap UD citizens, shrink them down to suitcase size and transport them to a planetoid for hideous human experiments. But a fearless rescue team is on the way! All that stands between the rescuers and success are four-armed androids in wraparound shades, martial artists wearing silk nighties and sporting sky-high hairdos, flying saucers swinging around the cosmos on strings like interplanetary yo-yos and more mod malevolence. It's all wild, wild fun and fantasy, brothers and sisters!

4.0 out of 5 stars Weird, Wild, Wacky Yet Worthwhile... June 24, 2011
Verified Purchase
[THE WILD, WILD PLANET - (1965) - Widescreen presentation - directed by Anthony Dawson (real name - Antonio Margheriti)] Hey kids, it's time for a rerun of a late 60's Saturday morning campy cult 'classic' sci-fi flick. Only this go-around, there's no goofy host, no cartoons sandwiched between movie segments, no commercials for Wonder Bread ("Fortified with vitamins and iron and guaranteed to build strong bones and healthy teeth") or sickeningly-sweet cereals ("Can't get enough of those 'Sugar Crisps'..."). AND it's in widescreen AND vibrant Technicolor AND hasn't been edited with a tilesaw - so I ask you, what else could you want? A good movie? Jeez, some folks are almost impossible to please...

If you're even vaguely familiar with science fiction flix from the 50's and 60's, you know most of them are bad beyond belief, though there were a hefty handful that were truly impressive, enjoyable and still hold up well today. But we're not currently addressing those; we're acknowledging the pervading bulk of the clunkers here, and glorifying a few others. Some were entirely without merit of any sort, some so irredeemably bad we're ashamed of ourselves afterwards, and some sooo bad they're actually good on a 'guilty pleasure' scale in sore need of calibration. And then there's a short list of transcendent films that have somehow elevated themselves (with our assistance, of course) to dizzying new heights of enjoyable entertainment we can be (almost) proud of. Well, this flick isn't one of those either, but it is nonetheless deserving of mention among the annals of cheerfully cheesy psychedelic sci-fi cinema. Maybe 'cause there aren't many entries in this category, maybe 'cause I have a genetic weakness for 60's psych in all its incarnations, maybe even 'cause it actually has merits of its own.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bleak but funny future awaits. September 24, 2012

The Wild, Wild Planet (I criminali della galassia) (1965)

Synopsis:
The commander of an orbiting space station is recruited to become the chief of a special task force leading terrestrial authorities in the hunt for who or whatever is responsible for the mysterious disappearances of people on a daily basis that's growing exponentially. (Did I mention space chicks play a big role?)

Review:
Listen up helium head. Yes friends, the depiction of your cranium filled with an inert gas is what passes for putting down one of your friends in jest in this very bleak and boring picture of our future. In this one, our future looks like something inspired by Lego and Meccano but without all the fancy bits. We are supposed to be wooed by the introduction of some crappie looking monorail thing that's essentially just a Chinook helicopter model with the rotors removed and suspended on a wire. What wonders await us?

We start off in orbit around the earth on the standard sci-fi spinning doughnut space station where our hero Cmdr Mike Halstead is putting up with an annoying scientist Mr. Nurmi conducting medical experiments by growing human organs. Nurmi is a solid knob easily rating 9.5 on the updated Richter Knob scale. This guy's mad scientist ego would make Marry Shelly shake her head a few times, and she invented the best. When you're on some other guy's space station it isn't advisable to hit on his woman, but Nurmi can't help himself when he catches a glimpse of Lt. Connie Gomez. He wants to get together with her real bad, but not in the way you might think; more creepiness later.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sci-Fi Pasta October 3, 2012
After the success of a trio of Italian Gothic Horror films and two Sci-Fi space operas( two starring Barbara Steele: 'CASTLE OF BLOOD' aka 'LA DANZA MACABRA'-1964 and 'THE LONG HAIR OF DEATH' aka 'I LUNGHI CAPELLI DELLA MORTE'- 1964 ,one with Christopher Lee 'THE VIRGIN OF NUREMBERG' aka 'HORROR CASTLE' aka 'LA VERGINE DI NORIMBERGA'- 1965) , 'ASSIGNMENT OUTER SPACE' aka 'SPAZZIO UOMINI'-1960 and 'BATTLE OF THE WORLDS' aka 'IL PIANETA DEGLI UOMINI SPENTI'-1961 with one of the last performances by actor Claude Rains), Director Antonio Margheriti aka Anthony Dawson was approached by American International Pictures to direct four films for American Television also to be released theatrically. Three of the films were funded by MGM and all were shot simultaneously over a 12 week period utilizing different actors. This one 'WILD, WILD PLANET' aka 'I CRIMINALI DELLA GALASSIA'- 1965 was the first released and, no pun intended, the wildest. It shows how the Italians embraced (and exploited) many genres into the same film as here we have a combination of Sci-Fi, Horror, and Espionage elements all rolled into one. As my other partner in crime- the 4 legged defender- has given a detailed synopsis of the party, it shows how the Europeans pre-dated many popular films to come including Director Stanley Kubrick's '2001- A SPACE ODYSSEY'-1968 , Director Roger Vadim's 'BARBARELLA'-1968 and Director Mario Bava's 'PLANET OF THE VAMPIRES' aka 'TERRORE NELLO SPAZIO'- 1965 with the use of intricate model work, colorful futuristic sets exploited in the later 'AUSTIN POWERS' trilogy and excellent camerawork by Margheriti's chief cinematographer Riccardo Pallottini. It is given a fitting hommage in Director Roman Coppola's underrated masterpiece 'CQ'-2002 reveling in Sixties European filmmaking. Read more ›
