interesting site :)

The film is ok, watched it last year I think, good for a scifi film if you did not take anything seriously, unlike the jehovah's who no doubt think it is real.

Liked the bit with the harrier jump jets that had lasted several hundred years into the future and were luckily found by the resistance to save the planet earth :)

All wrong, the correct answer is

It is crap.

But gregory, is that not just mindless slagging, calling it crap?

Yes you saw through the delicious irony, there is no other answer. :twisted:

Mindless, certainly not, I saw the film and made a judgement, it just doesn't merit much in the way of description.

That's not really fair - admittedly the film has its faults and isn't a patch on the book - but who can deny the power of John Travolta's performance?

The sequence where he's getting ready for the night out is fantiastic! The disco soundtrack always gets my foot tapping and the way he dresses in that white suit, getting his hair just right and admiring himself in the mirror builds up the viewer's expectation for the following dance sequences perfectly!

Battlefield Earth has earned its place as the movie that defines the seventies disco phenomenon.

I just passed through this thread not really reading properly until I saw your posting. I don't know if I am easily humoured but I thought it was hilarious.

The film is an easy no-brainer, just sit back and watch

Guess so, all the same to me, weirdo god worshippers who seem to think their god is the only way to salvation.

Weren't they the ones who declared the earth would explode / freeze over / catch fire or whatever was popular at the time..... exept it was supposed to have happened several times already and they had to issue a recall :)

Something like that - they also believe that the books of L Ron Hubbard are actually facts that are waiting to happen.
