    Yeah, I've always liked it. Certainly worth watching.
    The Landmaster vehicle is definitely the highlight of the movie.

    Damnation Alley was great but had a made for TV movie-of-the-week vibe Kinda like Westworld

    Still, great guilty pleasure movie --- Peppard is his usual Banacek/Hannibal self

    My biggest gripe was Paul Winfield dying so quickly in the movie.

    BTW, Trivia . The throwing rocks kid was Freddy Kruger in the remake Nightmare on Elm Street --- no BS

    Movie of the Week vibe isn't an awful thing considering that includes Salem's Lot.

    I thought Killdozer was a documentary

    Yes, it's a good movie.

    The Landmaster can dig in a bit to survive storms, so that was also good.

    They had a set showing the inside of Circus Circus casino, and it was pretty close to how it looked.

    I think Jackie Earle Haley was in one episode of The Planet of the Apes television series.
