Is this movie ACTUALLY the last time Crow uses the 'By this time, my lungs were aching for air!' pun? Or is that ignored for later series episodes?

One of the worst interpretations of the Bard's work, and yet some of the better riff. I suppose the biggest help with that is the power of the work itself being so well-known, so even the audience is laughing at the incompetence of it's version.

So, a quiet, nerdy college professor discovers a parallel dimension filled with scantily clad slave girls where he is machismo incarnate: A paragon of strength and heroism that every woman wants and every man wants to be....

Jesus! Twilight was a less blatant example of an author's sad and juvenile personal fantasies :P

Eugh, as a on-again-off-again interest in space stuff points out to me, just the way those gloves were affixed makes that suit entirely blumming USELESS! They just sit there like oven mitts!

“In 24 hours there will be one shrew left on the island.” Not according to a 53 year late sequel.

The problem is the growing threat of overpopulation. The doc's solution is to slow down human metabolism so we consume fewer resources. (Really, this would only affect food consumption.) Put aside for the moment that he can do so without reducing activity level. (Which is either a direct self-contradiction or what he really means is that he's increasing efficiency.) The side effects of his plan are, he tells us, twofold. First, humans will be half their present size. (Which means the next step of his plan will be to convince the entire human race to choose to have dwarf children.) The second is that the human lifespan will be doubled. (Er, doc? I thought the point of this exercise was to address overpopulation. You don't see any problem...? No? Okay, then...) His method for bringing on this massive change in biology is breeding. (Which, in the case of humans, means eugenics. So maybe, instead of a species-wide breeding program, it would be simpler and easier to just convince the entire human race to limit themselves to two children per couple?) He's chosen shrews as his test subjects because their two-week life cycle allows him to rapidly advance his breeding program. (The nine months he's been at this translates into roughly 18 generations, then? If you're so worried about the looming threat, maybe you should try for a solution that won't take centuries to implement?) Unfortunately, in the course of his experiments to make animals smaller and less hungry (which he says have been successful) , he somehow produced a generation of mutants that grew to 20 times the size of their parents (how does that work?) while remaining just as ravenous as the creatures he started out with in the first place. Also, they're immune to poison. In fact, they can drink it up, store it in their saliva glands (which were never designed to do any such thing), and keep it in their mouths for days without ever running out. A poison, mind you, which is so deadly that a mere scratch will kill an adult human in about a minute. Oh, and also, despite the whole point being to reduce their metabolism, they're no longer nocturnal, and will hunt night and day even as they starve to death. But, while they will turn upon each other, they'll only do so as an absolute last resort, which means that they'll first hunt down the last remaining food on the island, and not even bother going after the corpses of their own, which said food has killed.

Is that about right? Did I miss anything? No wonder the spineless ex-fiancée drank so much.
