The Soulless Minions of Orthodoxy - Movie Commentaries

Josh & Justin are The Soulless Minions of Orthodoxy. We record commentaries for classic and contemporary films. 

Sep 8, 2011

"SpaceCamp! Every summer, people flock there from across the country for official astronaut training on real NASA equipment...and to fulfill a dream..."

Dispite its troubled production and release SpaceCamp turned out to be a farily successfull foray into the "disaster film" sub-genre. Although it has the common formulas -- ensemble cast, reluctant hero, etc. -- it manages to rise above them and engage you emotionally. It's still a fun movie for the nostalgic and the young. Plus it has a great score by John Williams.

before you record an entire commentary clear your throat with enough violence to clear any blips of flegm coating your vocal chords.

I wish we were a bit more energized on the commentary. We were both a bit tired when we recorded it. So my apologies on that. But I wouldn't say your getting old, Raven. LOL. Some movies just transcend time better than others. At least in our own minds. For me SpaceCamp is one of those movies. For reasons I can't really explain. I'm more than sure that there are films like that for you as well. Glad your son liked it though. I think I mentioned in the commentary that it was most assuredly directed toward the younger crowd. Like The Poseidon Adventure for kids.

Your commentary was better than the film, which wasn't any where near as good as I recalled when I saw it at the cinema when it first came out (does that mean that I'm getting old?).
Saying that, the nine year old son enjoyed it which I expect would be more of the target audience for Spacecamp.
Looking forward to the next one.
