Anyone have any idea if MST3K did this movie because it sounds like a top contender.

Classic, all i got to say is classic, i remember seeing this movie when i was younger, and i guess its part of the whole star wars sci fi that hit the big screen in the 70 era.

I gotta see it again to see how well it aged.

This is, of course, a remake of the British science fiction film from 1936, "Things to Come" w/ Raymond Massey, Ralph Richardson, and Cedric Hardwicke. Which, of course, you will most likely never see reviewed here, as it regarded as being one of the greatest British films of all time.

But there was one worthwhile part to this movie. Getting to watch Carol Lynley run around in that tight spandex suit.

THis movie is great expensive to buy on DVD but still i dont regret one bit.

I have been greatly deceived when i saw StarCrash again, has a kid i loved that movie even more then Star Wars.

I have bought Battle Behond The Stars and still love it very much, and when i bought The Shape Of Things To Come i was very happy to see it aged beautifully.

The movie is great and brings back so many good souvenirs. At least Hollywood didnt do all thoses useless remakes all the time and actually took time to make good sci fi movies.

I just watched it last night, it is bad, Bad BAD. The horrible music, bad sound, the unnecessary foreground elements in a lot of the shots, the plot, the Star Wars rip-off moments, the kids - all these combined in the same movie, unbelievable! Still, I call it unwatchable, skip it. It's like watching a porno movie without the sex. The DVD is over $20 too, this should be in the 3 for $10 bargan bin at most. Thankfully NETFLIX has it if you are still curious.

This movie was filmed in and around Toronto. A friend of mine worked on the crew and refused to talk about it other than to say "What a piece of CR*P". The moon base was not Epcot Centre, but a water front park locate on the shores of Lake Ontario called Ontario Place. When I saw this movie you should have heard the groans from the Toronto audience as they recognised the park.

Here's a link to a photo:

Truly a turkey of a film that deserves to listed in any list of the worst ever made.

Afraid to say that MST3K didn't do this one,though they should have.The only Jack Palance movie they did were OUTLAW OF GOR and ANGEL'S REVENGE..This one looks really bad..

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
