I can’t stop thinking about this movie.

Frankly, it’s never been out of my mind since I first saw it on VHS in the 1980s. Or, frankly, since my parents first described it to me when they saw it in the theater.

It’s a little bit of a miracle, and the fact that some people giggle during it (yeah, okay, the mastodons look a little hoaky) make me sad for their inability to suspend their disbelief.

Maybe I’m just too quick to suspend my disbelief and I have a problem or something but that’s a blogpost for another day. This movie shocks me down to the very core. It is a full-on crazy survival science fiction movie and yet IT IS ABOUT US!!!!

I want to show this in a double feature with The Road. And then I will go and hit you on the head for food.
