This is on dvd for like $7.50. I have only seen a few minutes of it years ago. Should I buy it? I mean there are some great people in it...Lea, Kelly & Joaquin. I just don't know. It may not be watchable at this point.

Oh absolutely get it, where did you see it for that price?

If it was in a bin, what other ones were in there with it?

Devolution here,

Cough Terrible Cough.
It's not that great, and is only good if you liked it back then. Just some advice.

I love this movie! I bought it on DVD the day it was released because my VHS copy was worn completely out! Great cast...Lea Thompson, Larry B. Scott (from Revenge Of The Nerds) a very, very youung jauquin Phoenix (sp) and of course the lovely Kelly Preston. And rounding out the cast is Kate Capshaw & Tom Skerrit.
Very cool. I loved all the training scenes and the robot too.
I want to take my daughter to Space Camp when she's old enough to go. They have a program where the parents can attend with the kids. Is that cool or what?
Definately buy this movie!

The weird thing about the movie is the timing when it first came out.

It came out shortly around the time of the real-life disaster when the Challenger space-shuttle blew up.

Which maybe explains why it's not the #1 movie from the 80s....

There's always the risk that your subject matter will clash with some kind of real bad media event - a case in point might be this: would they have released Die Hard (1, 2, or 3) around the time of 9/11? Probably not. But these are the risks that you take whenever you try to cover any contemporary themes. Maybe that's why if you look at most modern movies, they are either historical (in dealing with events in the past, both recent and ancient) or comical (being made on such a frothy, no-substance level that they are'nt in any way connected with real life events). Those that take a risk end up being pretty good, because they stand out amongst the general noise.

BTW I have the SpaceCamp dvd and haven't yet watched it - may do so later if time permits.

I recently bought the Spacecamp DVD at Wal-Mart for about $7.50, and didn't really like it. What bothered me the most, was that Kate Capshaw was up in space with the kids. I thought it was just going to be the kids going up; that would have made the situation more fun and dire, IMO. There were a few good parts, but overall, I found the movie to be slow and boring. I did like the robot, tho.

Loved it as a kid but no idea what I'd think of it now. Having said that, most of the movies you love as a kid are at least watchable in your adult years. My parents were even going to inquire into the real Space Camp at NASA for me. That is, until I realised that maths was your major requirement. Darn!

For $7.50...who cares? If you hate it, you could always sell it on ebay [Big Grin]
