|And no, the HBO-HD version is not the theatrical cut. It's the same edit they used for the DVD and is missing all of the same scenes.
What a shame that version is lost, forever. I finally watched it, and it really is
laughable. It's not quite the crapfest I expected, though. It's nowhere near as bad as, say, Pumpkinhead 2:Bloodwings, or Circuitry Man, or Texas Chainsaw Massacre 4:the Next Generation. The special effects weren't bad. Lapses of logic were quite abundant. I still can't believe in 1000 years of mining the planet's gold they hadn't discovered Fort Knox! Never mind the 1000 year old harrier jets that still work. Those "Elton John/Tommy" boots made me laugh every time I saw them. Can't wait for the TV Series.
