First let me say - great entry.

The only thing missing is the classic "Amazon Women on the Moon". Itself a parody of the genre, and yet it managed to be a "B" movie in every way itself - somewhat paradoxically.

Secondly - I am driven to comment that the sentence "A floating giant brain (evil-guy) with eyes called Gor" causes me to laugh out loud. When you think about it I expect you'll realise that the brain did not have "EYES CALLED GOR" but maybe the sentance should have read "A floating giant brain - called Gor - (evil-guy) with eyes".

I know it doesn't matter much, but I wanted to thank you for brightening up an otherwise tedious and depressing Monday.

Keep up the good work,

"pie-tin flying saucers"...?

I think you'll find that only happened in "Ed Wood" - in the real Plan 9 they used plastic UFO model kits bought from the local store, and they looked no worse than any other SFX of the time. smiley - ufosmiley - erm
