So the Tivo has picked up Village of the Giants. We watched the first few minutes or so. It wasn't directed by Russ Meyer, but it may as well have for all the bad acting and gratuitous women rollling around in mud. It also stars an impossibly young Beau Bridges, a just-post-Mayberry Ronny Howard (as, improbably, a boy genius inventor), and Toni Basil (who also choreographed the dance numbers (yes, this sci-fi schlock has dance numbers)). Toni Basil! Of "Hey Mickey" fame in the 1980's, in a 1965 terrible sci-fi movie.
Who'd have figured.
I'll probably leave this on the Tivo until it decides it needs the space to record something else.
