Saturday Night at the Movies 8/17/13!

Who cares what picture we see?

Conan Lee would care - no doubt in my mind. So you know it's gotta be:

Man, this has always been my kind of movie - disparate comic book character types teaming up against the bad guys. This played at the University Mall theater when the theater was still in the mall and just four screens - I wanted to see it, but it just didn't work out - and I don't know why, as I was there for school anyway in early 1986 when this played. It may have been lack of motor vehicle; not sure.

Nonetheless, I grabbed it up as soon as I could on VHS - and I quite liked it. It's not a Timeless Classic - but it's a solid hour and a half with a cool cast - Andrew Prine, Denise Crosby, Roy Dotrice, and the indefatigable Conan Lee. I grabbed up a copy on tape some years later for the video vault - but that VHS might be on its way out the door - because Eliminators has finally coming to DVD - and it's another bargain set with three other sci-fi action movies included! (For the record, the other three movies are America 3000, Arena, and The Time Guardians.)

If you felt like coming on by - even tonight - we could load this one up - and after enjoying the main feature, cruise on through as many of the other three as you could stand!

Until next post, you Can Poke Me With A Mandroid, Cause I Am Outta Here!
