Out of the two movies included, Robot Wars is easily the more dated, with 90's hair and "futurist" fashion all over the place. Crash And Burn holds up surprisingly well, with only a few characters hamming it up for the camera or dated by their hairstyles. Sure the story's derivative, but there's only so many variations on the "which one of us is the alien/monster/psycho/robot" genre to begin with, and for a low-budget film, it does just fine.
The conversion itself is wonderfully awful as well, with visible film grain galore. Crash And Burn has a few more transfer flaws than Robot Wars, and during the final battle, it seems as if someone were purposefully messing with the video tape on which this movie had been kept for the last 20 years. Somehow, though, even that made me smile. I half-expected a "technical difficulties" card to pop up, accompanied by some bad lounge music. This is a must-have addition to any guilty pleasure movie collection.
Robot wars, at least it has scenes with the robot through out the movie. Not worth it. However not ad bad as crash and burn.
