Captain EO and the EOteers

Many have decried the "Disney-ification" of society, the cheapening of classic fairy tales and the commercialization of whatever. You know what it is, I don't have to run it down for you. The point is, Disney gets a bad rap, and sometimes rightfully so. However, Disney is also responsible for one of the single greatest achievements in human history, and that was the 3D film "Captain EO." It's no longer in Epcot, but it is here on the Internet!

If you mixed Star Wars, "Labyrinth," "Flash Gordon," Proust and Kafka, you still wouldn't get anything as close to perfection as this. Michael Jackson in space...with puppets. It's glorious.
