Something about a powerful thing that was taken, and a conspiracy. I guess.

Terrible. Simply terrible. A bad setup to the universe, a whole lot of shit pulled out of thin air.. generally bad writing and a bad mood. Bad pacing. Everything about it is terrible. Do not watch.

I really liked this one, and I'll take notes when I re-watch it.

I'll take proper notes when I re-watch this.

A documentary following soldiers fighting the aliens left over from an invasion.

I rather liked this! People talk about this being low budget, but until it's pointed out I doubt someone would really notice.

To solidify its power, a planet-eater tracks down the only thing which could threaten it, the "matrix of power", a device passed down from the leaders of a race of alien robots.

This was a deeply-moving movie for me as a child, though this impression was only possible because I grew up watching the original series. Re-watching this as an adult, it didn't have anywhere near that impact.

Though I do still like it, I don't know that I can recommend it, not just because it looks "old", but because it requires so much context from the series. I think for the young these days this would look like a crappy old cartoon with decent, but old, rock music.

The war with the bugs rages on, with humanity starting to lose, but something about god and wining and things.

This started off as a great or at lease decent tv-movie, but its "wrap up" took enough of a nosedive to spoil it. It has a much higher budget and is generally better than part two, but.. that ending, man. That ending. This is still worth a once-watch for fans of the original.

Soldiers flee an unwinnable battle, but find themselves trapped in a bunker surrounded by an enemy desperate to get in.

Recommended for fans of the original who can tolerate less character development, story and budget. It's definitely not bad.

Aliens are sending spores to colonize Earth, but when humans send a retaliatory force to their homeworld they learn the bugs are a far more dangerous foe than anticipated.

It's a largely flawless movie. Amazing fun for what it is, which is the sort of military movie where only one soldier runs out of ammo once in the entire movie.

trailer

To judge the Earth, aliens grant a single man the power of wishing, but he's an everyday guy and has no idea how to handle it.

A moderately good movie, with solid comedy throughout it. I only really care about it because of its subject matter and the way it handles it. Strangely, he grants himself wisdom early on but never clues into using it to give him proper understanding of it and how to use it. That's the major theme of the movie, and the source of its comedy.

Having been caught uncovering government secrets, an eight-year-old goes on the run.

While good, it's a sort of non-movie. It's hollow and without real substance or resolution.

Some of it reminds me of Escape from Witch Mountain.
