Moon 44 (1990)
In the year 2038, multicosmic corporations are dominating the universe, subsuming planet after planet in search of valuable natural resources. An agent (Michael Pare) of the Galactic Mining Corporation is sent to a remote outpost as a safeguard against the ruthless attempts of the Pyrite company to take over the base. Moon 44 was shot in Germany and released directly to video, despite its rather high cost of $15 million.

One of the most confusing, unappealing sci-fi films I've ever seen. In this early Roland Emmerich disaster, super-badass-chainsmoker 'Felix Stone' takes a quick twenty minute jaunt through the Blade Runner set (music and all) and then proceeds to a mining station in space where a group of ex-cons-turned pilots and a bunch of teenage boy navigators reenact scenes from 'Sleepers' and 'Top Gun' while they wait (apparently) for some sort of invasion from a rival mining corporation, in what amounts to THE ALAMO: IN SPACE! Emmerich's early script writing philosophy; the cut and paste method. If he likes, it goes in!... no matter how badly juxtaposed against the preceding or following scene! Lighthearted fun followed by a teenage boy's suicide? Intense action packed dogfight following a teenage boy's alluded shower rape? Sure! Fortunately Mr. Emmerich was able to sort out his vision for the perfect summer blockbuster by the time of Independence Day... Good for us.More
Pointless low budget Sci-Fi with lifeless performances and a plot reminiscent of but simpler than a mid 1980s arcade game. It does have a certain oppressive atmosphere but little else.More
