    Space Raiders

    ★★★

    I really wanted to like Space Raiders, with its tale of a nine year old stowing away on a ship taken by pirates. They don’t make movies where kids are in danger much anymore. Unfortunately, the reused space ship footage and James Horner’s bombastic score hide an even lower budget everywhere else. Better to watch The Ice Pirates if you’re looking for a similar movie from the time period. If you’d like to see the child actor in something even sillier, check out Stallone’s Over the Top, the definitive arm wrestling movie.

    The Hidden

    ★★★

    A thoroughly 1987 movie, 'The Hidden' stars Kyle MacLachlan and his perfect coif chasing the murderer of his partner and family. The story has elements of Carpenter's 'The Thing', MacLachlan's uneasy portrayal, and the worst part of the synth score from the 'The Terminator'.

    If you're a fan of John Carpenter's sci-fi movies, 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers', or a stripper shooting a pump shotgun at cops, this movie might be for you.
