  • Nino Lasso's rating of the film Space Runaway Ideon: Be Invoked

    For every mecha series prematurely canceled by studio bigwigs, you'll find a latecoming (and sort of redeeming) TV movie full of grissly comeuppances and horrible existencial implications. Is a 1:1 relationship. This one, counting that infamous decapitation-by-lasershot, doesn't feature a single surviving character and happens to source the inspiration of that ridiculous Star Wars VII star-spewing planet.
