    I taped the Daleks movie (which I've never seen), but haven't had a chance to watch it yet.

    I saw both the Daleks movies a couple of decades ago. I think I preferred the first one. It had some really cool musical themes that I still remember.

    Of course, the second one (which I've also recorded but not yet watched) is the one with Bernard Cribbins, who more recently played Wilfred Mott in the current Doctor Who series. It'll be interesting to see his younger self from that perspective.

    I actually stayed up and watched a good chunk of it... I thought it was both cool and silly at points, kind of like the series in the same era. The music was amusingly period as well. It was neat seeing Cushing as the Doctor, and according to Osbourne's commentary he was very happy with these movies because they did well and he got to play a hero for once and became a kid's favorite.

    The Who/Dalek movie was fun. I couldn't get through UFO. I like "bad" movies, but wow.

    Cool. I saw this about a year ago for the first time and thought it a much better film than the title might otherwise suggest. I quite liked it and have it in my video library.

    Yeah, I have that on DVD, too. It's worth it for the SFX alone, but otherwise it's really a high-end B-Movie.

    You're welcome.

    Yeah, and Abbott And Costello Meet The Killer would have fit the theme, too. There were several other "Meet" movies by the boys, as well, I think.

    If Abbott and Costello had lived and made films for several decades longer, might we have seen...

    As a kid, I was always disappointed that that weren't around long enough to meet the Creature from the Black Lagoon.
