yeah yeah, insert Robin Quivers joke here. Now that that is out of the way, I recently got it on DVD after not seeing it for at least 12 or 15 years and I gotta say, it's definatly an underrated film. A very dark and creepy un-Disney like movie that was the first to get a PG rating. The visuals and special effects, especially given what they had to work with back then in terms of technology, were really well done and you watch the movie for the most part really feeling like you're in outer space. The robots were pretty cool, if not a little cheesy, and when I was a kid, Maxmillion the giant silent evil robot sidekick/bodyguard of Dr Reinhart (think a mechanical version of Club Soda Kenny) scared the crap out of me. :icon_eek: It didn't do that well at the box office, but was nominated for some Academy awards at the time for special effects and audio. When I was a kid, for some reason I was fascinated with TBH and my mom got me all the merch-tie ins with the books and novelizations of the film.
