    My cousin put on to watching "You know whats ********?" and while i was watching the "DVD's" episode i saw a film that i have been looking for for years now.

    Here's the link to the episode:
    http://www.cinemassacre.com/new/?p=1239

    The movie in question is at 5:20 showing two people apparently fighting each other in huge robots. I know it's a pretty old film and i thought originally when i randomly remembered it that it was called "Robotec" and it was a movie adaptation but after plenty of trawling through IMDB and plenty of googleing it's either so obscure no one has added it or it's called something else.


    So, does anyone know it?

    I remember seeing it. No plot, just the robot suits. I have seen a bizillion scifi type shows. Horror is not my thing much.
    Like all 4 versions of 'I am Legend'?

    I heard of Tin Eye in the guess the car thread. Never tried it. Too much fun thinking for myself.

    I love Robotjox, I've got it on VHS and so far haven't found a DVD copy - I'm not even sure if its out on region 2. Its the closest thing to Mechwarrior on film I've seen yet.

    Its great fun and the final battle between the warring factions Mechs would give Freud enough material for an entire conference! The effects are very well done considering the budget and the year of release although there are a few scale issues. At times the Mechs seem huge but when they have close ups with the actors interacting with parts of the actual Mechs they seem a lot smaller but hey The Search for Spock had the same problem with the Kilngon Bird of Prey ship so what the hell.
