Shitty Science Fiction Movies

Last night I watched The Matrix: Revolutions and The Last Starfighter. They are both pret­ty shit­ty sci­ence fic­tion movies, but each had their good points. For ex­am­ple, Neo’s line about con­tin­u­ing to fight be­cause he choos­es to do so was the high point of the movie for me since I wrote some­thing sort of about that back in the day and cit­ed a sim­i­lar ex­am­ple from the Tao. The rest of the movie sucked.

The Last Starfighter was pret­ty fuck­en dumb too. I was 3 when it was re­leased. I do think they need to bring back those short sport shorts that Catherine Mary Stewart was wear­ing. I can live with­out the plas­ticene alien pros­thet­ics, though. Oh yeah, and the evil alien an­tag­o­nist? Least. Intimidating. Ever. Someone call the in­ter­galac­tic wahm­bu­lance on that dum­b­ass.

Don’t watch ei­ther of the­se. This has been a pub­lic ser­vice an­nounce­ment. Tonight I watch Grand Illusion.

  1. Hey I have a soft spot for The Last Starfighter. I guess it’s be­cause I look at it as more of a sci­fi com­e­dy than a straight up sci­fi movie. If you have the stom­ach for it, go back and watch the movie like you would if you were go­ing in to watch Army of Darkness. It’s not near­ly as fun­ny or as well done as AoD, but if you have that sort of ex­pec­ta­tion with it, I think you’ll find it to be an ok movie. Best movie quote from tLSf: “What do we do now sir?”
    (flip the stu­pid mona­cle thing down)
    WE DIE!”
    that one makes me laugh every time.
