 Modamag.com Cocoon (DVD Review)
The magic resurfaced with the promise of its sequel in 1988’s “Cocoon: The Return,” but it didn’t capture the power and originality of the original.
Above the sci-fi and humor present, “Cocoon” is about age, aging and what it’s like looking at the end of one’s life as well as what it would be like if there were choices that really could be made.
While this might alarm some, Ben and the boys discover that the pool the cocoons are being temporally stored in has regenerative powers that seem to be reversing the problems associated with aging.

 Jessica Tandy
The beginning of the 1970s saw a resurgence in her film career, with character roles in The World According to Garp, Best Friends, Still of the Night (all 1982) and The Bostonians (1984), and the hit film Cocoon (1985), opposite Cronyn, with whom she reteamed for *Batteries not included (1987) and Cocoon: The Return (1988).
She made her American film debut in The Seventh Cross (1944), and appeared in The Valley of Decision (1945), The Green Years (1946, as Cronyn's daughter!), and Forever Amber (1947).
Camilla (1994) was to be her last performance, and it was bold in one way that she, at the age of about 85, had a brief nude scene.

 coccon - review at videovista.net
Cocoon was a last hurrah for many of the elderly cast (although one or two survived advancing years to appear in the terrible Cocoon II: The Return, 1988).
Apart from the pretty device on the deck of Bonner's boat, and the splendours of the returning mother ship, very little technology is glimpsed.
Cocoon is a film in which sexual energy is equated closely to an amplified life force and is seen as both positive and welcome.

 Cocoon & Cocoon: The Return - DVD Review
Cocoon takes a simple, pseudo-philosophical question—what price eternal youth?—and surrounds it with some lame “comedy” antics and now dated sci-fi effects and cheesy synthesizer music (the montage set to Michael Sembello’s “Gravity” is priceless kitsch).
For one thing, the entire cast returns (though Dennehy wisely drops by for only a moment to say hello), and they continue to give it their all, as though they were in a better movie than they are.
There is a serious reconsideration, though, of the choice the characters made at the end of the first film, and the sincerity of their performances is at times quite moving.

Plot: The Antareans return to Earth to rescue the cocoons of their people on the ocean floor which are now endangered by seismic activity.
But for all the difference the trip makes, the OAPers might just be returning from a vacation to Europe.
Cocoon (1985) was terribly melodramatic, but was well thought of by a number of mainstream critics and was a quite reasonable success.

The only thing “Cocoon: The Return” allows its stars to do while the aliens are busy planning a rescue is shop, shoot hoops, beat up annoying orderlies and partake in some slapstick shtick.
Complicating matters (there are always complications) is that a research institute discovers one of the cocoons and takes it back to land.
Seismic activity has set off sensors near the cocoons on the ocean floor.

 :: rogerebert.com :: Cocoon: The Return
At the end of "Cocoon," some senior citizens were lifted into the sky by a beam of light from a hovering spacecraft and taken to live on a planet where nobody ever got tired, and nobody ever grew old.
The movie lacks the creative energy of the first one, in which the discovery of the alien "cocoons" created genuine tension, and there was such joy in the scenes where the old men (Brimley, Ameche and Hume Cronyn) were suddenly made young again.
In a way, both "Cocoon" pictures consider the same dilemma that the angels struggled with in Wim Wenders' "Wings of Desire": Is it better to live forever as a spirit who can feel nothing, or for a finite time as a creature who can breathe and hurt and die?

When Kitty and Jack had weird alien sex in the first "Cocoon" movie, Kitty continued to glow throughout the entire scene.
In this movie, when she gets "drunk" on something she shouldn't have eaten and decides to do it with Jack right there in the restaurant, she stops glowing as soon as she releases her ball of sexual energy (or whatever it is) and she doesn't glow at all for the rest of the scene.

 8/21/03: Not Even Nominated Part Six
John Corigliano was unhappy with his experience on the film (and many of his cues in the final version are suspiciously short), and didn't return to movie scoring until his Oscar winning work on The Red Violin, where he was allowed unusual control over his music and its use in the film.
The film was a boxoffice dud but was lovingly made, with terrific ILM effects including a robot spider that looked like it crawled off the cover of a 50s sci-fi magazine.
Though the film has been all too little seen since, luckily the soundtrack was eventually made available, first as a Sonic Atmospheres LP and later as a Bay Cities CD.

The surprise success of the first film probably dictated that they did, and now they are torn between staying with their loved ones or going back to their outer space paradise.
Director Petrie drains this take of that, and while Ameche and friends put in solid enough performances, there is no spark.
