Plan Nine from Outer Space (1959)

It seemed a bit unforgivable to be a bad film connoisseur and not having had seen the supposed "best of the best", Plan Nine from Outer Space (seems a bit like claiming to be a pop music expert and not having actually listened to the Beatles)

Anyway, it mostly lived up to expectations, with the preposterous opening exposition by Criswell, the "Bela Lugosi" scenes, the hilarious spaceship and the relative idiocy of the aliens (and the fact that they had reanimated a whole TWO PEOPLE to dominate the entire world...

It's not even my worst film of 1959 (it was more fun and 2 1/2 hours shorter than Ben-Hur)
