The only passenger on an extremely long voyage learns the trip isn't what she thought it would be.

Definitely worth a watch; good, though not great.

The world is "running out of energy" somehow, and a space station is meant to create free energy somehow, but it ends up being more complicated than they realize.

Not highly recommended; a fair movie.

I don't even know how to describe this movie.

It's only okay. It's notable because it's somehow rated PG but is so utterly completely unsuitable to that rating; legendary.

A child, with a big imagination and interested in history, has a fanciful dream.

A wild ride of a movie that's totally immersed in the 1980s style.

Two young losers somehow make a hot woman who has magical powers.

One of the fundamental parts of this movie involves some really terrifyingly-old technology. Even back then it was comical. If that can be excused, the rest of this holds up perfectly.

So with that out of the way, I can highly recommend this. I know my nostalgia must cloud my judgement, but I still think it would be a fun movie for a first-timer. It's bubblegum.

  • I'm not sure how this was rated PG-13, as there is nudity in a couple of places, like in a magazine.

Fun as hell. Mandatory viewing.

The crew of a plane get food poisoning, and only a man with PTSD has a chance to pilot it.

Full of dad-humor, this is definitely only good for people who can handle silly and pointless humor. Notable for being very adult even though it was rated PG. There were better parents back then.

  • Inappropriately rated PG.
