War Of The Planets - 1966 - 5/10
AKA - I Diafanoidi Vengono da Marte

A bodiless power, the Gasinoids, launch New Years Eve attack on space station Delta 2!
Quickly followed by an attack on Alpha 2! Gamma 2 dispatches a ship to investigate.

Of course, shrewd viewers will suspect a prelude to invasion.
Amidst swinging spaceship cocktail parties, heroic men suit up.
And what suits! Zippers galore. Add great miniatures, cheesy special effects (aliens = green smoke).

Italian SciFi is plenty of fun, even more amusing since everyone is dead-faced throughout.
A gleaming entertaining future, to be sure. Oh, if only ours were such.
