Hercules Against the Moon Men
Earth's mightiest man battles moon monsters!
Hercules is summoned to oppose the evil Queen Samara, who has allied herself with aliens and is sacrificing her own people in a bid to awaken a moon goddess.
I enjoy how Hercules's solution for most of his problems in the latter half of this movie is simply to push shit over. Columns, statues, rock men - you name it, he sends it toppling.
Sounds like that has a ton of real-life application.
My dad grew up a fan of Westerns, having watched them nearly every Saturday morning as a kid. I came relatively late to movies in general, and even then I tended to zero in on horror movies. By and large I didn't really get into Westerns (although there's talk about an all-Western channel, so that sounds promising), but for whatever reason, I am into sword-and-sandal movies.
I really enjoyed the hell out of this movie.…
I bought a DVD set with 50 classic (B) sci-fi movies--thought it would increase my palette. This is the first movie.
I don't get why people make such a big deal about the 'Deep Hurting' scene. So its ironic that this movie is actually fairly well known and that it has a infamous scene where characters run around in a sandstorm for an extended period of time. I was unbothered by the sandstorm scene. The visual/audio piece made for an often atmospheric experience, and it reminded of The Wizard of Oz. I just let the sound of the wind carry me along.
Hercules Against the Moon Men (great title) shares many plot similarities with Hercules and the Captive…
One of those movies that feels like its 3 hours long. Boring and just about the same movie as all the other Maciste flicks.
This slightly odd 1964 french/italian (fritalian?) sword and sandal flick, directed by Giacomo Gentilomo is excellent if only for what has been come to be known as the "Deep Hurting" scene. An exceptionally lengthy and unneccessary sandstorm scene where the cast just flail about for an amazingly extended period of time.
It is notable also for being Giacomo's last ever film. You decide for yourself why this might be after watching the flick here www.ziln.co.nz/video/1055
A stupid sword & sandal/sci-fi mash up. It's fun and entertaining even though it doesn’t quite live up to its fantastic title. Hercules is besieged by a villainous queen who is in cahoots with some kind of bucket-headed alien with an army of rock creatures.
