Lost in Space (DVD)
A family of space colonists, their pilot and a diabolical stowaway scientist become hopelessly lost beyond the galaxy when their mission is sabotaged. Marooned in an unknown and hostile region of the cosmos, they must band together to survive in this state-of-the art update of the classic television series.]]>
Packed with more than 750 dazzling visual effects, this $70 million adventure does more (and less) than give the 1965-68 TV series a state-of-the-art face-lift. Aimed at an audience that wasn't born when the series originally aired, the sci-fi extravaganza doesn't even require familiarity, despite cameo appearances by several of the TV show's original cast members. Instead it's a high-tech hybrid of the original premise with enough sensory overload to qualify as a spectacular big-screen video game, supported by a time-travel premise that's adequately clever but hardly original. It's certainly never boring, and visually it's an occasionally awesome demonstration of special effects technology. But in its attempt to be all things to all demographics, the movie's more of a marketing ploy than a satisfying adventure, thankfully dispensing with the TV show's cheesy camp but otherwise squandering a promising cast in favor of eye-candy and ephemeral storytelling. In keeping with the movie's high-tech appeal, the DVD is a feature-packed marvel, including two audio commentaries, deleted scenes, two featurettes covering special effects and the original TV series (featuring complete biographies and episode guides), the original screenplay, and interactive games. --Jeff Shannon

Rebought it on Blu Ray Jan 2015, and was embarrassed upon re-watching it together with others, discovering that while the script's core elements are passably creative, alas, the dialog is laughably bad. I like the cast, I really do, but they could not breathe enough life into that horribly hackneyed dialog to keep me from laughing out loud at it several times.
So, if you want to watch a mild adventure movie that is squarely in the sci-fi genre, but weirdly has one foot in "so bad it's good" territory, and the other "acceptable B-movie" turf, then give it a shot. But, I recommend not investing in the Blu Ray. The budgetary limitation on the special effects (which otherwise are serviceable) show up more in HD. Stream it, or get a used DVD.
I will keep a soft spot for this odd miss of a family movie. Mostly for the concepts and the actors. But, great galloping gophers, the dialog, oh the dialog. Maybe it makes for a good drinking game?
Earths natural resources are failing, so the family Robinson needs to build a hyperlink gate to travel to a new planet so we can survive. Lot's of fun and references to the original TV series. Awesome special effects and great character interaction. Looking past the campy story and cheesy lines the movie is highly entertaining
The film meanders all over the place with time travel hokum, a crash landing in the snowy mountains of an unknown planet (No problem!), a marital pillow in outer space (Boo!), a solid demonstration that Professor Robinson has no idea how Captain's authority or the chain of command works on any kind of vessel, and mechanical spiders that veritably scream "we have a $70 million budget for CGI nonsense and we're going to use every penny"! The script is boring and ponderous, the pacing is clunky, and the ending is one of the worst in sci-fi history.
The DVD is absolutely loaded with extras, so if you like the movie, you'll be enthralled. There are two commentaries, a special effects documentary discussing the best points of the film, and a question and answer session with the original cast, among others. Like I said at the outset, I genuinely wanted to like "Lost in Space," but I found it tedious, overlong, and largely annoying except for the special effects, which were outstanding.

But sound will never propogate in a vacuum. That's basic physics, familiar to a child.Read more
