This review is from: Plan 9 From Outer Space [DVD]  (DVD)
Many people seem to enjoy this movie but still call it BAD. Then there are those who speak of it like it's the worst thing ever put on celluloid, but exactly those people make a buck or two with the films of Ed Wood whom they call a "would-be-director"! I don't get it! This movie is great entertainment! Ed Wood made films under circumstances that would have driven others mad but he didn't give up. You must feel sorry for him because he put all his heart into his movies, and now everybody laughs at him. He could do only so much with what little money he had, also, if you want to know what he could do with a fistful of dollars more, just watch THE BRIDE AND THE MONSTER, which looks very good.
PLAN 9, like most of Wood's films, is great entertainment, therefore not a bad movie at all, and it's not stupid, there's truth in this movie! And it features one of the greatest lines ever, delivered by the unforgettable Criswell: "Can you prove that it didn't happen?"
Also my favourite dialogue:
She:"You still seem to be up there somewhere."
He:"Maybe I am."
She:"I don't think I've ever seen you in this mood before."
He:"I guess it's because I've never been in this mood before!"
If you wanna see something truly bad I'd recommend CAT WOMEN OF THE MOON", which will bore you to death(when watching it I could feel the devil's breath in my neck!)
Ed Wood's films should be approached with an open mind, and if you do so, you'll be rewarded.
