2001 a space odyssey came out in 1968, Nine years later, War of the Planets! It is a mystery for whom this movie was made for. It is so poorly done, one doesn't know where to start. No plot, crummy effects, stilted acting, it looks like it was shot in Italy and dubbed in English, but that does not seem to be the case (maybe I am wrong). Like a star trek plot jumble, this film bounces from tired plot line to inane plot line. No one involved seemed to be taking it seriously, there are 2001 rip offs galore, down to an illogical use of classical music in the score. There are times it tries to be funny and fails, then there are times it tires to be dramatic, and ends up funny. One could argue that it was made for kids, but for the inclusion of an "orgazmatron" complete with some blue movie groaning and moaning. The robot villain looked like the grill of some Italian sports car, it had flashing lights, Oooohh! It is also immobile. Do we need to see the crew of the spaceship jump up and down and hug each other, as if their team scored a point, when they are not destroyed by a meteor? Lame movie making.
