Lost in Space: Platinum Series

One is deeply torn by this effort to translate the classic 60s TV series into a 90's "sci-fi" blockbuster. Among the good things: Jaw-dropping special effects, a capable cast, and a special edition DVD with great sound and picture and a lot of extras for a good price. The drawbacks include a plot that descends from mildly interesting action/suspense into goofball explorations about the warping of space/time that could only interest the most hardcore boffins while leaving the general film-going public scratching their heads and wondering when this will all be over. A better demo disc than an actual film. 5.1, and Platinum Series extras abound.
