It's the high school production of Battlestar Galactica!
19 April 2017 | by khunkrumarkSee all my reviews

The crew aboard The Satellite Of Love turn their attention to the awful 1978 tragedy, Starcrash. I'd give you a semblance of a plot outline but there isn't one to be made. It's a haphazard and random collage of scenes decorated with the film's only bright spot - Caroline Munro. This poor girl had a worse manager than Colonel Tom Parker... and it didn't help that she couldn't act either. Nice to look at though, which, of course, was why she was cast!

Hugh 'Marjoe' Ross Gortner deserves a mention for being the most annoying twit in the history of entertainment. He's the guy that always managed to secure a punch in the face at school! The red mist would form in front of my eyes every time this rock star wannabe, broke into his trademark toothy grin.

A good looking Christopher Plummer chews uncomfortably through his appalling lines yet the baby-faced David Hasselhoff looks right at home with his! Add a robot from Texas with an IQ of70 and you've got a movie! It's the high school production of Battlestar Galactica with casting by Ikea!

There's a wealth of material here for the friendly folk at MST3K to chew into but they never quite get going. The riffs pile on in numbers but not in laughs. It's always worth a watch for the 'Misties' out there but this outing of the reboot maybe the weakest so far. (I'm watching them in sequence and this is number six.)

Best gag for the kids: "She's got her head in the butt part again!" ...and for the grown-ups: "Er, what are you doing?" - "Well, I did just save you!"

A swing and a mostly wasted opportunity boys, sorry.
