I just barely remember this one, but I liked it.  Corney, yes (but then they usually were) but it was still cool.

I was wondering if anyone knew a way I could get my hands on the original 3d version of this movie.  I have some friends that work in a theater, so purchasing an orignal reel could possibly be an option. Thanks.

Me and my mom went and saw this in 3D.  Yep.  We had a great time and Molly was cute but a tad annoying...still cheezy fun!  I don't know if mom'll sit and watch it with us now...  Also check out Ice Pirates with the late Robert Urich for similar cheezy Sci-Fi fun!

Correction on Ringwald:  she'd only been in 3 other films including the wonderful Tempest, also P.K. and the Kid (?) and Packin It In (?).  Plus the Facts of Life thing (ha ha) and was still somewhat unknown.  I'd never heard of her.  16 Candles and Breakfast Club came directly after...and then...everybody knew who she was.

Man ho man i am glad that i have bought this one on dvd.

This is a classic of the 80 sci fi movies and one of the best ones.

I was very scared to see this movie again, last time i add seen it was around 1987, and again today in 2004, it has aged wonderfully and the special effects where quit amazing.

Maybe the movie was campy, but I'd love to be the guy to rescue Molly Ringwald :-)

The film wasn't so bad! I seen it for first when I was about 5 years old, and I was so amazed on it's environment and the machine design was wonderfully done for show a Post-Apocalyptic world in an another planet. By the way I still don't know those country sides(rocks, desert sides) played on a forgotten area, or needed to travel to an another country.
The laser effects and the android was the two special effects what thrown up the film to the most sci-fi times in that age I thinks.
Washington's harvester/tractor thingy and Wolf's jeep was so unique, and that film's style gave me a lot of help to advance my art style. My favourite and funny scene was the action with the train what have been attacked by Overdog's bike warriors.
Wolf: -I join.
Chalmers: -Whose side?
Wolf: -To my Own. Cover me!

Yes, this one's a great peice of pulp sci fi "western." Nothing wrong with that, it never really tried to be anything but something to munch your popcorn to. The reason I love this flick is because it's one of the handful of films that a guy named Mike Minor worked on as an art director. Other films of his include the Trek episode, "The Tholian Web," Star Trek: TMP, Flesh Gordon, and The Cat From Outer Space. Tragically, his career was cut short by the AIDS epidemic of the late 80's/early 90's. The guy really knew how to make things look cool, if it was a rusted out future SUV, or a gleaming cat's eye spaceship.

I would drive across town to see that in a heartbeat.

Not to be creepy (for a change), but I can't be the only 8 year old who felt an unusual 'stimulation' at the sight of Claw-borg's methods. (I can't say his real name, I just can't)

Another cool movie from the past. I hadn't thought about this movie for a long time. Now bits and pieces are coming back, but I am also remembering bits of Ice Pirates so its confusing. I never saw this in 3-D, but I did see it on its premier cable run so I was pretty young when it came out. I do remember that creepy scene with the children and that eerie noise they made. And yes, Molly was a hotty, I had a crush on her. The 80's were decade for awesome cheesy movies. Man, where have they all gone?

I think this is number 47 in a list of sci-fi/fantasy films in which, at the end, as soon as the baddy-boss is seen off, his entire fortress collapses and all his minions also die/surrender/vanish. Convenient for the goodies, eh? Wish real life were like that!

 I was Manager/Projectionist in 1985 and had the pleasure of running this fine film. And you have got to see it on a big screen in 3-D if you ever can. You don't see the really great mistakes they made after ratio mods are done for DVD. In the beginning of the movie where the life pod crashes you can see the studio parking lot just over the ridge line. And my all time favorite B-Movie story ever. The attack of the fat people. (Did anybody wonder why they were hanging upside down from the rafters?) The script that was sent to special effects makeup read "Fat People" and they apparently didn't read any farther than that. So they showed up to the director with fat people costumes. It was a legendary fail. I Love It. Besides that none of those 80's flics that had Michael Ironsides chewing the scenery can be called anything but epic. Including the spazz-fest  that was "Highlander Two". Cheers
