An excellent example of what happens when you don't cause transference between the viewer and the principle in the character development stage of a three act play. Scientology biases or differences aside, it wasn't any more idiotic a story than what the industry frequently grinds out.

You could say that about Plan 9 from Outer Space! :lol:
I've always thought a quality remake of Plan 9 would be an excellent project. You'd probably have no shortage of A-list talent ready to jump on board.
