Flavorwire’s Guide to Movies You Need to Stream This Week

Journey to Planet X

Directors Josh Koury and Myles Kane document Eric Swain and Troy Bernier’s two-year production of a 30-minute homemade sci-fi movie that is, it must be said, not very good. But this is a cheerful and good-hearted documentary, walking a fine line between observation and ridicule, and ultimately resisting the latter impulse (no matter how tempting it may be). Like Ed Wood or Mark Borchardt, Swain and Bernier are clearly in love with the mere act of making a movie, and Journey to Planet X salutes their dedication and hard work, while acknowledging that, yes, maybe the final product leaves something to be desired, quality-wise.
