Voyage to the Planet of Prehistoric Women – 1968 – United States/Russia

Voyage to the Planet of Prehistoric Women begins with a documentary-like primer on the future of space travel. Models of cool and outlandish prototype spaceships are seen.

In the year 1998, an international crew of astronauts lands on Venus. They explore the rocky, swampy landscape with their robot John. They fight off dinosaurs and a killer flower with tentacles, find ruins of an undersea civilization, and survive a volcanic eruption. One of the astronauts hears siren-like singing and concludes that women must live on the planet. It turns out that he is right. The women are a tribe of beautiful blondes in seashell halter tops. They are telepathic, eat live fish, and worship a giant pterodactyl. When the astronauts kill their pterodactyl god, the women worship the astronaut’s robot instead.

Birth (a.k.a. Birth: A War of Two Worlds!) – 1984 – Japan

The universe is in an embryonic state. Apparently, when it is populated by enough “organics” (humans), the universe will be “reborn”. The presence of hostile “inorganics” (robots) is stopping this somehow. None of this makes sense, but the result is a battle between humans and robots on a post-apocalypse desert planet. A spunky pilot woman, an unremarkable warrior, and a brash space merchant are on quest for a bazooka that can destroy all the robots and blow up the whole planet.
