Every Sci-Fi Cliché Possible, 13 September 2010

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

One night hanging out at my friend's frat house, some brothers decided to watch the best and the worst of genres. This particular film came up as the worst Sci-Fi film. How that rating is too true.

I've only seen it once. If I remember correctly, there are several subplots, one of which is a cheap 70s-style porn scene, that do nothing to help with the "story" or "plot" (not that I could really freakin' figure out if there was one at all).

It's said that the entire earth is destroyed, but from the looks of the film...it's just North America.

They land in a different planet that has mutant creatures vaguely based off of crabs, chicken, and Tuscan raiders.

When they come across the crab, there is just slow motion shooting until one brave soul decides to shoot the "soft underbelly" of a crab. (It is to be noted that the crab is red, implying the crab as already been boiled...so it shouldn't be alive anyway). After the 3-5 minutes shooting scene, it is then when the characters decide to use grenades and other explosives. Facepalm indeed.

I don't know if I was laughing too hard to remember, but I don't understand the story at all. I was in a room with those who were well- versed in Sci-Fi films and shows and they were pointing out clichés and vague similarities (Tuscan raiders).

If you want a good movie, DO NOT WATCH THIS. However, if you're stoned, drunk, and/or looking to laugh at how horrible this movie is then please enjoy this lovely piece of work (if much work was put into it).
