Plot: Around the turn of the century, British archaeologist Professor Aitken and his son, Charles, have chartered a ship called the Texas Rose to take them out to sea. There, they plan to dive underwater in a diving bell designed by American engineer Greg Collinson. Although everyone aboard the ship, including Greg, thinks that the Professors Aitken are just going to look at fish, Charles and his father are secretly searching for proof of the existence of the lost city of Atlantis.

The movie it's self is a great story but if your expecting 2014 top of the line CGI, well you won't find it there.
Given the era at the time , it's still a great film , specially for those who ever saw it and enjoyed it all those years ago.

Krull is a 1983 British-American heroic fantasy-science fiction film directed by Peter Yates and starring Ken Marshall and Lysette Anthony. It was produced by Ron Silverman and released by Columbia Pictures.

The film includes early screen roles for actors Liam Neeson and Robbie Coltrane.ImageImage
A narrator describes a prophecy regarding "a girl of ancient name that shall become queen, that she shall choose a king, and that together they shall rule their world, and that their son shall rule the Galaxy.
Image

The planet Krull is invaded by an entity known as "The Beast" and his army of "Slayers," who travel the galaxy in a mountain-like spaceship called the Black Fortress. In a ceremony involving exchanging a handful of flame between the newlyweds, Prince Colwyn and Princess Lyssa attempt to marry and form an alliance between their rival kingdoms in the hope that their combined forces can defeat the Beast's army.

Image

A prophecy foretells that Lyssa will bear a child destined to rule the galaxy. The Beast has his Slayers attack the wedding before it is concluded. The castle of Lyssa's father, King Eirig, is destroyed and the Kings are murdered.

Image

The Kingdoms' armies are devastated and the princess is kidnapped

The Dark Crystal is a 1982 American–British fantasy film directed by Jim Henson and Frank Oz.









The plot revolves around Jen, an elflike 'Gelfling' on a quest to restore balance to his alien world by returning a lost shard to a powerful but broken gem.

Image Image



Although marketed as a family film, it was notably darker than the creators' previous material. The animatronics used in the film were considered groundbreaking.ImageImage











Image Image













The primary concept artist was the fantasy illustrator Brian Froud, famous for his distinctive faerie and dwarf designs. Froud also collaborated with Henson and Oz for their next project, the 1986 film Labyrinth. Image

If you watch Titanic backwards, It is a heart warming tale of a ship which jumps out of the water & saves lots of drowning people.

Sapphire & Steel produced between 1979 & 1982 by ATV was a Fantasy Sci-Fi series but with a twist, our heroes "Sapphire & Steel" were the members of a group of agents called "Elementals" who were tasked with keeping the balance in the universe.

Where these elementals came from or if they were even human was never fully explained. There were ten elementals in the series but only five of them ever had any screen time, Sapphire, Steel, Silver, Lead & Jet.

I was a big Last Starfighter fan as a kid - even tried making a Gunstar, though was never too successful, possibly due to the fact that I was making it out of popcorn buckets. Still wish someone would make a toy of that.

You'd think that, given the rise in drone warfare and gaming, a sequel of remake or some such would have been done by now. Some alien army would be chock full of murder machines if Call of Duty and other FPS's were actually recruiting programs...

I too was a big fan of this movie.
Even trying to clock space invader games at the shops , hoping that I would be recruited in the same way :lol: :lol:

I used toilet rolls to make my Gunstar :D and fight them against my army men :D
