Adding a bit to Walt's comment... Yes, pretty sure you're thinking about "The Love War" - I still have it on VHS somewhere... I especially remember Lloyd Bridges (from a couple of other movies I'd seen at the time also). It's about two alien races who's deciding which of them gets to dominate this part of the galaxy and/or Earth. They agree to each ...
Night of the Comet, perhaps? I don't remember it that well, myself, but it does feature two women and one man early on. And there's a clothing montage, but that was so common in the '80s as to be wholly unremarkable. The last scene features a lament about "being a nun": And a guy pulls up in convertible at about 2:50, ...
Alien from L.A. has a scientist finding a hidden world underground, lots of weird characters and a macho hero helping the heroine, who is the scientist's daughter.
The idea of an artificial intelligence was not out of fashion in those years. This can be seen in the several episodes of Star Trek (1966-1969) where the idea is discussed (not movies, though).

It sounds an awful lot like Earthstorm from 2006 with Stephen Baldwin. A massive asteroid impact on the moon begins causing storms on earth due to the sudden changes in ocean tides. But when further examination is conducted it's discovered that the moon's structure is now entirely unstable -- threatening all life on earth. With time running out, a team ...
"Virtual Nightmare "(2000) A man drives around his small hometown in a brand new convertible. The style of everything is 1950's but people have cell-phones, HDTV and computers-and an announcer on the radio says something about Kurt Cobain's children's christmas album coming out soon. Indeed a very different world. This man starts seeing things, ...
Some slight variance in the details, but could this be Melancholia? The differences being that it's a planet, not a moon; and the realization that the orbit was miscalculated results in the planet colliding with Earth, as opposed to missing? On the night of her wedding to Michael (Alexander Skarsgård), Justine (Kirsten Dunst) struggles with ...
The Trollenberg Terror has a giant eye killing people, but I do not recall the "eating" element described. It is most certainly a B movie that would have Elvira as a host. It is black and white, if that helps. I also found the movie on youtube.
