    #Lost80s #SciFi #Adventure Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone (1983)

    Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone (1983) is considered a Space Western, which is a funny term on its own, but in this film, the space footage isn’t more than ten minutes. The musical score stays true to other big name Space Operas (another term that makes me giggle), it even competed with Star Wars: […]

    Journey to the Seventh Planet (1962) #SciFi

    At the beginning of Journey to the Seventh Planet (1962), the narrator paints a story of the future, this is an excerpt. “The year is 2001. Life is changed now. The planet Earth is no longer racked by wars and threats of annihilation. Man has learned to live with himself.” I wish we would’ve hit […]

    Dark Encounter (2019) #SciFi #Thriller Review

    Dark Encounter (2019) made my watchlist last year, but since it wasn’t available on Prime until recently, I didn’t watch it (yes, I’m thrifty). The biggest reason it made my list was because Grant Masters is in it. I enjoy his style, and this role made me appreciate him more. You might remember him from […]

    #Lost80s #PostApocalyptic America 3000 (1986)

    The F-in Plugot tricked me. Nena America 3000 (1986) is one of those forgotten gems that brings about a sense of nostalgia in me. While the setting is Colorado (there’s a sign for Denver Brighton), it was filmed in Israel. I guess it’s cheaper to film over there than here. Tony Berg made the music […]

    #SciFi Classic Movie Flash Gordon (1980)

    So, yeah, this isn’t horror at all, but it’s still amazing. How could I leave Flash Gordon (1980) out of my diversion walk? Besides, it has an amazing soundtrack composed and performed by Queen, but that’s not the only reason I enjoy this movie. The level of campiness is astounding. It’s one of the most […]

    #Lost80s #SciFi Movie – Zone Troopers (1985)

    You wanna know what saved my neck. This. Helmet. Steal. GI. Olive Drab. Government Issue. Nothing else. Not luck. Not magic. Not my guardian angel. The Sarge Zone Troopers (1985) is filled with so many strange elements that it’s hard not to be pulled into this bizarre world that puts WWII together with an alien […]

    #Lost80s #PostApocalyptic #Classic – Cherry 2000 (1988)

    What do these have in common… lightning rods, Fig Newtons, escalators, ballpoint pens, and Vaseline? Cherry 2000 Anyone care to chance a guess as to how many times I’ve seen Cherry 2000 (1988)? I think it exceeds twenty, but it could be many more. The thing that surprises me the most about this film is […]

    #Lost80s #Dystopian #SciFi Movie – She (1985)

    Another post-apocalyptic film from the 1980s many tend to snub is She (1985), staring Shandahl Bergman and David Goss. This epic journey is completely amazing and feels like a continuous dream that changes from one strange reality to another; think Alice in Wonderland with a lot more LSD. I remember watching this one on VHS […]
