They should restore this for blurry, mind you it's selling for 39.89 at amazon.

 

I remember seeing this on Pay-tv in the 80's it was on a lot. it's all a little fuzzy for me now. but it's slowly all coming back to me. Molly Ringwald was kind of annoying in this sidekick role.

I saw this in 3D at a film festival years ago. The 3D seemed weird and off, like the depth of field was reversed. People were grumbling and I started getting a headache. Finally about 30 minutes in, someone yelled out "Put your glasses on backwards!" and it worked. Apparently the projectionist had put the anaglyph filter in the wrong way.

 

Fun, dumb space movie. And yeah, Molly Ringwald's character is super annoying and whiny throughout.

I only saw this in 2-D and that was more than enough D for me. Molly Ringwald was completely annoying. And somehow it launched her career. She went on quite a run immediately after this movie. Obviously because it was amazing.

"I've seen hairier chests on Molly Ringwald."

 

Nothing to do with this movie, just an odd line from the porn Bratgirl.

Yo this movie is a PERFECT hdtgm flick. Everything is so over the top and artistically bankrupt. Had me gasping and cringing and laughing. Great dumb-speak like saying "brain work" for thinking and the like. Every ten minutes or so is like a totally different movie so it really keeps the surprises rolling. Including when you finally see Ironside as, appropriately enough, a giant claw-handed cyborg zombie monster lol. They're so fucking big! Borrows from all the big hitters like star wars, running man, mad max, shades of terrible italian spaghetti scifi... And Molly Ringwald.

Peter Strauss is awful in the lead role but he's surrounded by so much crazyness that you kinda don't even notice him.
