Viewing Notes

First movie in Paul’s superhero themed watch party on Kast. Def wanted to see this one b/c it was directed Juan Piquer Simón (SLUGS). I think he makes interesting films even when they aren’t so good (ex. Mystery on Monster Island) and this one! It’s p goofy all around yet has a charm to it. Also reminds me a lot of PUMAMAN which came out the following year and opened the 2011 B-Fest. Paul mentioned in the live chat that this film would make a good B-Fest flick. I agree. It’s so similar to PUMAMAN. It’s unfortunate that B-Fest no longer programs films like these.
