Oh, Nostalgia, you flittering tease. This was one of my go-to films as a teen. This and The Clash of the Titans were my gold statuette gods. I can still hear the HBO Feature Presentation music playing moments before this started.
I couldn’t stop thinking Kate Capshaw is married to Steven Spielberg, and Dennis Quaid looks so young. Despite the really crappy FX (both visual [Peter Kuran] and makeup [Craig Reardon]) there were moments of charm and moments I cringed where it hadn’t aged so well. And an (already-known) observation that Inception is a crude knockoff with better FX.
