      Do people really believe Battlefield Earth is worst than Robocop 3? No, I’m serious. If you’ve seen Battlefield Earth as many times as I have than you start to realize a pattern. Battlefield Earth-🤢
      Robocop 3-🤮

    I remember seeing this when looking through the on-demand movies one day when I was really bored. I'm no movie critic or cinematographer, but even I noticed the oddness of the tilted camera, and even thought my TV was messed up for a minute. It was dumb enough to almost make me stop watching several times, but I did finish it due to the over-the-top villain and having nothing to do that day.

    The only way to watch this is with Rifftrax. But what I hate the most is people using the term Galaxy or Galaxies without any idea what the word fucking MEANS! This is common in Doctor Who episodes as well. I tried reading the book, I really did. But it is the WORST SF novel I've ever seen. The literary equivalent of a dental drill and no anesthetic.

    I agree that this movie was very bad. Nowhere near as good as it should have been. But I think the reason why the psyclos act the way they do is because they suffer from a massive superiority complex, so they pay attention to those they conquered, which would prove to be their downfall.

    These were the NC episodes that made me love the whole series. They focused on the movie, didn't have too many skits cutting in and were generally rather clean. Now with the amount of cast members and the need to keep them the reviews go on too long and the skits take up half the running time. I honestly can't watch anything made after "To Boldly Flee". It's just not the NC I grew up with.

    14:21 Why would that blaster have its grip canted in reverse? There's no ergonomic reason for it to be that way!
    14:36 He's holding it upside-down because it has a reverse-canted grip.
    22:10 Maybe they could shoot straight if their blasters didn't have reverse-canted grips.

    Audible has an incredible unabridged audio book that is voiced by 50+ different people and awesome sound effects. Go check that out it is a TON better.

    And the planet (in the book) actually wasn't Radioactive. Instead of O2 the planet had a substance called Breathe -Gas. It reacts explosively TO radiation. That's why everything had to be inspected before being teleported home. And they had force fields around the Teleport pads that did contain the blast inside it. But the blast (in the book at least) was so powerful it busted thru the bottom of the platform deep down into the rock into ancient tunnels beneath the planet. That is where the radiation made contact with the Breathe- Gas and started the explosive chain reaction. Oh BTW Psychlo was the only planet to have Breathe gas (except a small moon with liquid Breathe-Gas). And all females that left the home world were sterilized. So the species ended here.
