I realize it's heresy to enjoy this film, but alas, alack, alarum I did. I also realize it's about that Scientology, but it's funny. It's hilarious seeing Travolta as a dreadlocked big headed badass try to walk around in those platform boots.
Was curious to find that there was a movie adaptation to Battlefield Earth. This was one of the first sci-fi things I read, when I was a kid. And then I was surprised, Why wasn't I aware that such an adaptation existed? Afterall, this was from a book that the creator of Scientology (that other sci fi thing) wrote. And then I wacthed the movie. OH! This is why. It's barely watchable. Worst than the book. Wow. Amazing.
I lost my remote and by the time I had found it I was mesmerized by Travolta's horrible acting, the shitty homage to planet of the apes and Berry Pepper trying to do his best Hawkeye impersonation from Last of the Mohicans.
What can I say about this, that hasn't been said already. Probably one of the worst movies both ever made and that I've ever seen. It is completely incompetent from start to finish, both technically and story-wise. It's no secret that this was an awful and flawed vanity project for John Travolta and this is THE textbook example of how vanity projects can go awry. You can't even watch it ironically, it is painful.
