Battlefield Earth Is A Fun Movie
Battlefield Earth is "widely considered" to be one of the worst movies of all time, but I don't share that assessment. Alien clam gods aside, I just watched it and actually found it to be an entertaining science-adventure yarn, very much in the spirit of the Golden Age of science fiction as Hubbard intended it. Yes, I know that radiation can't set a planet's atmosphere on fire. And guess what? Aliens with copper-based blood wouldn't just happen to evolve to look just like humans and be able to mate productively with them. As entertainment, recommended.
