There is one other thing that separates Don from so many of the rest of us who made our own home movies, and that's an obvious degree of creative talent. Talk about working on a shoestring budget, Don was not only ahead of his time compared to other kids, but you can argue that Don was advancing into techniques that paralleled Hollywood filmmakers of the day.
I could not help but star the DVD by first watching the actual documentary I Was A Teenage Movie Maker. This full-length documentary features a running commentary by Don beginning with his very first films and going right through his last amateur project. Besides Don, there are also comments from Forrest Ackerman, Bob Burns, and numerous childhood friends of Don's who reflect on their "acting careers" and working with Don.
What really comes across as you watch the documentary is Don's passion for movies. Like I said, he didn't grow out of it and still owns many of the props and costumes he used forty to fifty years ago. That alone is remarkable!Read more ›
magazine. Some of them are pretty good, Some of them are awful. And on most of them, you will be glad for the commentary track by Glut, because thats the only way you will have any idea what the hell is going on (See The Fire MOnsters" for example). But SON OF TOR, the real reason to buy this disc, and likely the reason you did,
does not dissapoint. Its prettty well done. TOR, KING OF BEASTS comes close. I liked the plot of TOR, KOB
better. Its a twist on KING KONG with the explorer slanding on the island in a rocket ship. But SOT was easier to follow.
