    We watched StarCrash recently as part of our weekly bmovie watching ritual, and it was one of the better ones.

    Clearly a feeble attempt at a Star Wars ripoff, the movie has surprisingly good production value, and the story makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. Highly recommend!

            If you’ve never seen it, it’s a trip for sure. Utterly horrible. Not even Christopher Plummer could have saved it. He admitted that his reason for agreeing to it was because he actually wanted to go to Rome for free. In his words “I’ll do porno in Rome, as long as I can get to Rome.”

            The MST3K version is up on Netflix for the curious, though I recommend finding it unriffed first. It’s pretty easy to find on Google.

    This film was amazing. Compete star wars ripoff and the finale has one of the best lines I’ve ever heard in a film (which I absolutely will not spoil here, you need to watch it!)

    Also I think it was Hasselhoff’s first film (or at least first leading role!)

    I don’t see any Italian names on the poster, but this looks like Italian Star Wars.

    There really isn’t a point where it stops getting worse :-) Space-Cave-Men, Space-Dracula, Space-Bikinis, it’s perfect.

          Absolutely, but why? If you don’t want to say a word you can just not say it, and it’s not like it’s unclear what word you’re trying to say.
