Movie Reviews

Fun, entertaining SF film, aka Pod People on MST3000
Valnastar | Deep 13, USA | 11/25/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This odd little Czech film is much like ET but was made before it! Known as Pod People when it was shown on Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K), it's the tale of two aliens that accidentally land on Earth. One of the aliens, Trumpy, is raised by a little boy who loves and cares for his new friend, teaching him kindness and gentle behavior, while the other is mistreated by poachers, thus becoming angry and going on a killing spree. Chaos and mayhem ensue before the whole mixup gets sorted out and the little boy is forced to abandon his friend to protect him from other people. All this after a rather large body count is racked up by Trumpy's mistreated and angry twin. The whole pop-group-on-weekend-camping-trip-gone-bad sub-plot is amusing and generated terrific comedy when this movie was used on MST3K. That version of the film is available in The Mystery Science Theater 3000 Collection, Vol. 2, also for sale here on Amazon. This film is not a particularly good or bad film, it's about average, but it is amusing and entertaining and it has a few ideas in it that were good enough to show up in ET: The Extraterrestrial!"
