Ok, this was a cheesy sc-fi movie I saw in the mid 80s. It was set in a kind of post apocalyptic future ala Mad Max. It starred a tough Kurt Russell type character who was in the desert when he saw a guy getting chased by some other guys. The guy getting chased ended up getting shot through the forearm with a grappling gun but the tough guy helped him escape.

It turns out the guy that got shot was an android, I kinda remember him being a Data type character, very formal and naive. The tough guy said he was "the kind of guy that'd get out of the shower to take a p***."

I don't remember much else from the movie, except the tough guy ends up sleeping with a blonde lady in some palace in the middle of the desert.

Does anyone have any idea what movie this was? It's been driving me crazy for years trying to find it.

I don't think so, I remember lots of guns. And it's not Cyborg, this was way before Van Damme movies started. The year was probably 1986 or so

Only movie he did back in 1986 was "Big Trouble In little China". You can check out his filmography here.

That's definitely not it. The guy in the movie wasn't Kurt Russell, I just remember him looking a lot like him.

I can't, just what they looked like. The lead was a really tough gruff guy, the android was all quiet and proper, and the blonde girl was really tall and skinny. I remember she had a thing for roses. I know...really vague descriptions but it's all I can remember.

Searched for robots/androids and deserts... could this be the movie?

Hardware (1990)
http://www.imdb.com/...740/maindetails

A wandering soldier finds a robot head in the post-apocalyptic desert. He brings it back to his girlfriend for use in one of her sculptures. He investigates the origin of the head, and discovers it's from the Mark 13 project, canceled because of unreliability. His girlfriend, nay, society at large become endangered when the robot puts itself back together using the parts she has for her sculptures.

Ahrg, I thought that was it until I watched the trailer. This wasn't a horror movie but it sure sounded close. Thanks for looking though, you have no idea how much this has been tormenting me trying it.

That's the only one I cam remember, and I've been racking my brain too. The line about the shower has always stuck with me because I thought it was the funniest thing ever when I heard it.

I remember in the beginning the android is at the top of a cliff with the guys chasing him below. They fire a grappling hook up at him, the camera pans up to his face looking totally blank, then pans down to his arm and the hook went right through it. You can see circuitry sparking through the hole in his forearm.

There were several Mad Max knockoffs in the 80's. One really bad one that comes to mind is a movie called Metalforce. I had Michael Beck who was in the Warriors and Xanadu.

Another movie I remember had Molly Rinqwald and it was a 3D movie. Kinda of the same vibe but I dont know what the name of the movie is.

I don't think Megaforce is it but I'm definitely going to check it out because that was kinda the look for the movie. Thanks!

Here's a list from IMDB. By the way, the 3D one might've been Parasite.

Go to Titantv.com. Enter in your information and pick your cable provider. Then, backtrack to when the movie was on.

This site kicks ass and helped me with an exact situation the other night. Sadly, the movie in question was "Invincible" starring Billy Zane, and looked so cheesy that I had to know what it was.

Sweet. Those are some really good leads. It might by Stryker but I'm pretty sure there weren't any mutants in it.

Damn, I was sure this was going to be it but after reading that geocities review it definitely isn't. But these are better results than I've had looking for it
