Slaughterhouse-Five (1972)

A man tells his story of how he became unstuck in time and abducted by aliens.
An unusual, but effective adaptation of a complex novel, at heart an anti-war movie, but wandering through various time zones (including a world beyond the realm of earth), sometimes a bit bewildering.

Halliwell*: "Interesting but infuriating anti-war fantasy for intellectuals."

Maltin***: "Sometimes draggy,sometimes on-target, sprawling view of life...Big-budget adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut's bizarre fantasy novel is hard going for those unfamiliar with author's point of view, , gains through repeat viewings."

The Phantom Planet (1961)

After an invisible asteroid draws an astronaut and his ship to its surface, he is miniaturized by the phantom planet's exotic atmosphere.

Risible sci-fi adventure, quite poor in all departments, doesn't achieve the quality of even the worst Star Trek episodes.

Maltin*1/2: "Fascinatingly terrible movie."

Lemmy (2010)

A documentary on the life and career of revered heavy-metal musician Lemmy Kilmister.

Although more a homage than a documentary this film does offer some insights to a beloved and legendary rock musician and is quite entertaining as well.

I am Divine (2013)

How Divine, aka Harris Glenn Milstead, became John Waters' cinematic muse and an international drag icon.

Comprehensive and often stirring portrayal of an unusual star with an even more unusual career does justice to a lovable, but controversial figure.
