Two wonderful films in one!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cocoon / Cocoon: The Return [DVD] [1985 / 1987] (DVD)
I waited a long time for 'Cocoon' to be released on DVD and to get both the original and the sequel was a real bonus. Cocoon is packed with wonder-ful moments and the CGG effects in some places are truly amazing. A film for the whole family, especially perhaps the old and the quite young. A story of gentle evolved alien visitors and a group of elderly men and women who become involved with each other, with the humans finding that age is no barrier to helping friends. Also the interaction between the female alien and a human man has some beautiful special effects - the restaurant scene in particular is quite spectacular. A joy to watch.

Good review but there are no CGI effects in Cocoon. Never had such a thing back then.
