I thought this movie was... Um... "Interesting".
I found the Tin Foil Beanies funny as hell, but there is a part in there that reminds me of childhood.
Mel goes running into the corn field at night with a flashlight. This reminded me of playing marco-polo at night in a corn field with my cousins, and how incredibly scary it really is to be in a corn field at night without a flashlight, and hearing noises of people running around you.
Or playing ghost in the graveyard in the fields with flashlights, etc... Spooky fun times. Or taping a flashlight to your wooden M1 Garand.
Aaaah. To be 8 yrs old again!
PS. I'd have liked having a Thermal Vision Scope (for the invisible-like ones) & a Mossberg 12 Ga. Pump to take care of the aliens.
