The brief old-people-and-aliens craze that swept Hollywood in the mid 1980s saw Jessica Tandy and Hume Cronyn stake their claim on the genre with great force, *batteries not included appearing in 1987 sandwiched between Cocoon and its sequel. It wasn’t as good as Ron Howard’s movie – but at least was better than the sequel. Steven Spielberg produced it and it was made very much in his style, clearly not approaching the heights of his own movies of the time but certainly not without its charms.
