Alien Apocalypse by Josh Becker (dir) (Sci-Fi Saturday, March 26 / ) - Nothing we've heard about this Sci-Fi Movie makes us think it will actually be good...not even the casting of king of camp Bruce Campbell as the hero. But we like Bruce, and are determined to at least try to watch it. From the website: Dr. Ivan Hood (Bruce Campbell) and his team of astronauts return from their latest mission, only to find that Earth has been conquered and enslaved by aliens. Now Hood and fellow-scientist Kelly (Ren?e O'Connor, Gabrielle on Xena: Warrior Princess) must free humanity from its alien masters.

Robots by Chris Wedge (director) (20th Century Fox March 11, 2005 / ) - In a world full of robots, a young inventor named Rodney (Ewan McGregor) only wants to help make the world a better place. His guide in the big city is the wacky Fender (Robin Williams) and he meets a bizarre array of robots while struggling to find his way. Life in the city is nothing like he expected but he has a dream. Unfortunately for Rodney, his plans clash with a big shot inventor named Bigweld (Mel Brooks). At the same time, Rodney's confounded by the attentions of sexy Cappy (Halle Berry)-- is she there to help him or betray him to Big Weld? Also starring Greg Kinnear, Amanda Bynes and Drew Carey. Directed by Chris Wedge. 20th Century Fox. (see review)
