What is this 80s scifi movie?

I don't have much to go on, but I keep thinking of this 80s scifi movie, and I can't recall what it was. All I remember is that it starts out (I think it's at the beginning) with a guy and his daughter mining some kind of crystals in a cave. They use some kind of tool to help extract them from the cave wall. Then some people come and capture them or something. Any ideas? I know it was on tv quite a bit because I'd watch it when I saw it on. I can't recall any other details though!

I doubt this is it, but in case your memory's a little hazy it reminded me of an old Spanish scifi of Ingrid Pitt's, Sound of Horror 1965.. except the guy and his niece were extracting dinosaur eggs from a cave.
Its pretty old though, and in black and white, so don't think you'd mistake it for an '80s movie

As a kid I saw a movie called "Otto is a Rhino(1983)" about a boy who had a pencil or crayon, and as soon as he finished the drawing, it would come off the wall and start to live. I think it was a Danish movie, but I will never forget that scene.
My brother and I also saw "Steel Riders(1987)" tv series about a group of BMX kids taking on criminals, including a Biker with a silver visor on his helmet.Quite intimidating to see as a kid.
And "Under the Mountain (1983)" miniseries about kids having to deal with Mudd Monster aliens that would pose as humans, and then could transform at will.
And you probably all remember the pilot from the tv series "The Phoenix (1982)" about a Peruvian tomb that is found, opened and the ancient inhabitant that was inside all of the sudden walks among us.It's those magical and scifi series from way back when that really speak to the imagination.Good memories

Yup, that's a Danish movie, based on a Book by Ole Lund Kirkegaard. I believe there is a more modern movie adaption as well.

I thought movie was great way back then felt a little like a Sci Fi version of Mad Max Road Warrior with a twist. Hell even the title lured me in "The destruction of Jared Syn"...L Still good movie today.

Kull and the Beastmaster are good for popcorn munching. And Tanya Roberts in Beastmaster, ooh la la, ; ) Technically fantasy, but did I mention Tanya Roberts.

Here's a movie we'll cartoon made early to late 80s it's a Starwars type rip off (not Wizards or Legend of orin or Planet au Savage) it drives me crazy All I can remember is two robots who crash land midway through the movie on a mound/hill and look up or out across the valley to see Thousands of Viper style spaceships flying. The story might centre around them I'm not sure and I think maybe one was red but definitely R2 and Threepio rip offs.. There was prolly a Queen or Princess in peril too..
Any help would be grand..

It's certainly around if you don't mind traversing the Severn seas ;)
