War Of The Robots
« on: November 03, 2007, 01:23:34 AM »
I just got done watching a great bad movie called "War Of The Robots". http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0077640/

It's a 1978 space movie that put Space Mutiny to shame.  Although if that is a good thing or a bad thing I'm not quite sure.  This is one of the better Italian movies I've seen however...and it makes me sad.

I think this would be a great one to riff because it tries to hard to be a true sci-fi film and it just fails at everything.  The soundtrack sounds like your watching it on Atari and the acting is something to beholden.  Also if you like too close up shots of people's face and pseudo-space talking this is the movie for you!  The special affects and physics are something to leave you speechless.  To say anything more would "ruin" the whole movie...and make me remember viewing this dreck of a great bad movie.

Sounds interesting, just how available is it?  Something for Legend Films to acquire down the road perhaps, or is 1978 a little past their target range?

I got this movie from Best Buy in a value pack they sell (35 movies for $20) and it was released by Platinum Disc Corporation.  So I'm pretty sure that some place online would have it and I know there's a bundle pack of War Of The Planets/ War of the Robots here as well online http://www.shopzilla.com/12--War_of_the_Planets_War_of_the_Robots_DVD_-_cat_id--5110__kw--war%2Bof%2Bthe%2Brobots__prod_id--7022868__qcid--739899177390.

I had to watch it again just to see the awesomenisity of the badness of it all.
