MAROONED - "Title Credits" (1969)

Never did consider the 1969 Oscar winning film "Marooned" to be a 'Monster Movie' by any means, but it is in space, okay, that's good, but it's not scary, and there's no monsters!! Still, there's a fascinating little story here. More science than science fiction, they chose to use electronic sounds instead of big orchestrated music as background. So, there is no score for this movie, I guess the sound guys, Les Fresholtz and Arthur Piantadosi get the credit since it's more sounds than music. They did get an Oscar nod for 'Best Sound' but they didn't win. Neat stuff, quite unique, and the only thing boring about it, is the feeling that a drill is boring into your cranium!! Good job guys!! By the way, Netflix is streaming this movie, so you can watch it whenever you want! Decent quality too!!

Director Joe Dante took on the MST3000 guys for parodying this "serious" feature. What a Maroon!
