What do you think of the line up?


NB: Did you know that when the film " Battle Beyond The Stars" was relased in the UK on VHS - it was advertised with a huge poster that claimed it was - " 7 times better than Blake's 7"!

Krull
Battle Beyond The Stars
Space Raiders
The Legend Of Orin
Titan A.E.
Serenity
The Chronicles of Riddick
Heavy Metal
Dune
Battlefield Earth

The animations are difficult to sell. I thought Dune (what I saw of it) was reasonably good. Didn't Paul Darrow once say that Serenity was very like what a movie of Blakes 7 would be - still haven't seen it though!

I have Battle Byond the Stars on DVD, and also Starchaser - The Legend Of Orin on R1 DVD. Dune is excellent too.

I'd also add 'Spacehunter - Adventures in the Forbidden Zone' to that list
