I was also really impressed by Dr. Lao
... it was a fascinating mixture of tones, from the kid-movie feel to the scene with Barbara Eden and Pan, which was decidedly adult.
It had a lot of heart and Randall was great. And the tent-as-TARDIS idea was cool.
I also watched The Blob
, which I thought was a lot better than it had any reason being... maybe having someone like McQueen helped -- not that he was great, but he was a lot better than most teen monster-movie leads of the era. And it didn't even give in to the temptation of having the "bad cop" get absorbed!
