The Ice Pirates (1984)



In the far future water is the most valuable substance. Two space pirates are captured, sold to a princess, and recruited to help her find her father who disappeared when he found information dangerous to the rulers. A real Space Opera with sword fights, explosions, fighting robots, monsters, bar fights and time warps.

My two cents: Arrrrrgh! Pirates, robots, lasers, ...um ice! What more could you want?

Warlords of the 21st Century (1982) AKA Battletruck



Post World War III futuristic tale of collapsed governments & bankrupt countries heralding a new lawless age.

My two cents: Avoid! Mad max rip off! I first saw this movie on TV in the late eighties. I always remembered the battle truck and hunter's rather futuristic motorbike. Having just watched it through you tube I still love it. I am so ashamed of myself

Three women makes an emergency landing on a planet plagued with a fatal disease, but are captured by dictator Overdog. Adventurer Wolff goes there to rescue them and meets Niki, the only Earthling left from a medical expedition. Combining their talents, they try to rescue the women.

Metalstorm: The Destruction of Jared-Syn (1983)  



A seeker named Dogen rescues Dhyana after her father is murdered by the evil Jared-Syn. To avenge her father's death, Dogen must find Jared-Syn's hideout in the mysterious "Lost City", but the only person who knows where it is an aging, burned-out seeker named Rhodes. Along the way, they will need to do battle against the hunter Baal and his Cyclopean minions for engaging Jared-Syn in a final encounter.

My two cents: You're brain will surely melt away watching this movie. Avoid!  it's a fairly poor effort even by "B" standards.

Gremloids AKA Hyperspace (1984)



Because of a small navigation mistake Lord Buckethead lands on earth instead of "in a galaxy far, far away". But he is still looking for the princess and the secret transmissions.

My two cents: a Star Wars spoof that is surprisingly funny and Lord Buckethead is very cool! the trailer for this movie is a must see! really.

Eliminators (1986)



A former pilot rebels against his creator, teaming up with the scientist responsible for android technology, her pet robot Spot, a rough-and-tumble riverboat guide, and a martial arts warrior.

My two cents: If you want to have a "no brainer" good time, find this movie! And really, you have to see that Mobile Unit in action! This movie has: - An Indiana Jones - A hot army robot -technician - A terminator - An R2D2 - A ninja - Cavemen - Romans - An evil professor who wants to take over the world, Very insane, yet enjoyable

Galaxina (1980)



Main Plot: Crew of interstellar police ship is sent to recover a mysterious crystal, the blue star. Sub Plots: The ships female android and a crew member fall in love. Alien is spoofed as as the captain gives birth to an alien who grows up on the ship thinking the captain is its mother.

My two cents: It's not a laugh riot, it's not a classic, but there are some very funny lines in there and interesting Visuals

Warrior of the Lost World (1983)



A nomad mercenary on a high-tech motorcycle helps bring about the downfall of the evil Orwellian government, the Omega.

The Sisterhood (1988) 



The year is 2021 AD. Women have been enslaved by a brutal army of men who survived the nuclear holocaust. Their only hope for freedom is in the hands of a nomadic band of fierce she-warriors: The Sisterhood.

My two cents: girls-with-guns a cheesy post-apocalyptic flick complete with laser beams and "talking" Hawks. AVOID!
