      My husband loves this flick, but I do everything possible to wrestle the remote whenever he plays this movie.

      “Battlefield Earth” is based on a book created by L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology. It’s about the Earth being taken over by a barbaric bunch of alien thugs- the Psychlos.
