This week's reviewed movie is:
Land of the Lost




Gene the Barber

Land of the Lost is based on a children's T.V. series from the early 1970s.

This new version with all the new visual effects has made it into a really fun thing for the kids to watch, but I found virtually very few laughs for the grownups.

The effects are a crutch for lazy screen writing.

I did hear kids laughing all throughout the movie, so let's be kind for the youngsters.

If you want a no-brainer comedy that never takes itself seriously, then go no further.

Based on the 70s live-action children's show that had some of the worst effects of its time, Land of the Lost boosts extreme silliness and one of the best T-Rexes ever.

Not great, not bad -- an average film for those who want to take the middle road, but still want to laugh.

Land of the Lost is a reimagining of a movie based on one of the most dreadful 70s Saturday morning T.V. kids' shows ever devised.

This new version is more strange and foolish, and much more crude and raunchy than the original comedy science fiction series.

I found this film to be of poor quality and a waste of time.
