The Valley of Gwangi vs. Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone



on 11/8/2011

Baaaadddd 60s fantasy dinosaurs vs baaaaaaadddd 80s sci-fi action. The Valley of Gwangi must be one of Harryhausen's worst efforts. The story is awaful and the purple T-Rex isn't much better. The only bit I enjoyed was when Gwangi made it into the cathedral. Nice juxtaposition. Spacehunter is a sci-fi film in a Mad Max style, with a Mad Max budget and Mad Max sensibilities. Just a complete lack of gore and Molly Ringwald surgically grafted on to it. Nevertheless, I prefer it to Gwangi.
