Why?  Why, why, WHY?????

Other than showcasing Farrah Fawcett in various skimpy outfits and giving us a glimpse of her naked breast, WHY was this movie made?  It's not suspenseful, it's not exciting, it's not scary, it's not dramatic . . . it's just dull.  PLUS we get slapped in the face with a couple of shots of Kirk Douglas' wrinkly-old ass.  And listening to Harvey Keitel's dialogue dubbed by another actor is very distracting.  I bought the damned blu-ray because I thought I "needed" to have this movie in my collection.  It almost gave me the dry heaves.  Although, the opening shot of a model spaceship approaching a painting of the planet Saturn is priceless.

I think it was originally titles "Farrah Fawcett in various skimpy outfits" but then some idiot got the idea to add a bunch of sci-fi junk to it.

When I was a kid, this seven foot tall thing with a snaky thing where it'd head should be really creeped me out.

And Harvey Keitel introducing it as a "blank" human brain, & the scene where he first turns it on by running living fluids through it.

To me, this has always been the perfect Frankenstein for the '80s!

I remember seeing this one in the cinema as a youngster. Thought it was great. It might even have kickstarted my love of bad movies.

I remember liking it as a kid but I revisited it a few years ago for the first time in many years aaaaaaand... yeah, not very good at all aside from the Farrah eye candy. The robot is cool and some of the sets are nice to look at, but it descends into silliness fairly quickly.

If memory serves, the flick was directed by Stanley Donen of "Singing in the Rain" fame, which is kind of a 180 degree turn from this.  BounceGiggle

Yes.  Originally Donen was just the producer and I believe John Barry was the director.  However, Donen fired him and directed most of the movie himself.

    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.
