what is the deal with the prologue at the beginning of this movie? I've watched it a few times, and yet I never remember it, or how hilarious it is. the "scientist" who is a language professor goes on about how the Earth could be hollow. I can't believe anyone over the age of 15 believed that he was serious.
but the movie is a fun little adventure, and has some pretty iconic monsters. the story is interesting, and despite a kind of silly set up, it works well, like an ERB pulp book. who saw the downer ending coming though? what's that deal all about? I saw this a few times growing up, and the ending always surprised me.
