“Merry Christmas, You Filthy Man-Animals!”

Attach those alien nose-plugs, because Battlefield Earth is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring guest cohost Max Dunn.

Review in a Nutshell:  Listen up, rat-brain!  Just because a movie has an incomprehensible plot, hammy acting, ridiculous dialog, and goofy special effects does not mean it’s not the Greatest Movie EVER!  Get that through your skull-bone!

Fun Fact:

The “sharpened log fence” is actually called a “stockade”.


  1. Leo says:

    This movie is so horrible, it even deserved all the Razzies it got including Worst Picture.

  2. Sugar-chan says:

    Me and Dex sat through this and immediately started calling each other rat-brain. You wouldn’t last a day in the academy!

  3. Firest says:

    I’ve certainly seen worse sci-fi films as well. What I think sent BE over the top in most peoples minds was a combination of the advertising hype, big-name stars, and it’s connection to Scientology.

    Unlike most movies adapted from books covered on TGME I’ve never actually read the BE novel, and given that it’s generally considered only marginally more readable than the movie is watchable, I’m in no hurry to make up the lack.

  4. Eduardo M. says:

    A funny thing I’ve noticed regarding the toys that were released to tie into the movie is how many dios on the Internet use part or all of the Re-education chair as a prop for some sort of mad science thing

  5. VF5SS says:

    When you were learning to SPELL YOUR NAME!

    I was being trained to CONQUER GALAXIES!

  6. Sugar-Chan says:

    It should also be noted that this is the best Forest Whitaker has ever looked in a movie. I kept watching him, cocking my head to the side and saying ‘He really kinda almost looks handsome maybe’.

  7. NMA says:

    I don’t recall Max Dunn ever co-hosting before? Is their a way to find his other works if any? I love his voice.

  8. Alex says:

    My father asked what movie I wanted to see. I chose this one over Gladiator. This is one example of how I have (and continue to make) bad decisions. He still won’t let me forget it.

  9. gooberzilla says:

    This is Max’s first time on my podcast. I don’t know if he’s ever been on any others. He may have snuck onto AnimeWorldOrder at some point. I could ask him.

  10. Sugar-Chan says:

    Can’t lie, Max Dunn’s voice is kinda hot. Especially when imitating John Travolta in Battlefield Earth.

  11. Young Freud says:

    If I remember what I’ve heard of the book, the Psychlos actually comeback and blow up the Earth. However, Johnny and the humans all ascend to godhood when they are blown up a la the Force’s “if you strike me down, I’ll only become stronger”.

    Also, Max’s voice made me think of H. Jon Benjamin.

  12. Max Dunn says:

    Nope, I have never been in any podcasts. I’m not wordsmith enough for this business, but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to champion this gem of awesome cinema. I’m still miffed both of us forgot to go into detail on just how all the Psychlo’s were fantastic jerks to each other in each and every scene.
