Escape from Galaxy 3

I started watching this amusing drek SF movie over at Network Awesome and was immediately struck by how much the spaceship effects and bad “majestic” music reminded me of my favorite terrible 70s SF film, StarCrash. Five minutes into the film the villain makes his flagship slow up like a giant hand clenching and–wait a second, they are reusing spaceships and scenes from StarCrash!

In a way, that makes it even better. The interior/soundstage scenes are actually worse than StarCrash. Which is saying something. There’s a long break from spaceship and lasers for the heroes to land on ancient earth and learn about kissing (and more–not a G movie), a disco dance number, and then more spaceships.

Look, this is a terrible and dumb movie. You still might like it.

    Ooh, I don’t know if I can even make it through the clip above. Ouch. (Is it in Italian originally? Or is it just that I recently saw Planet of the Vampires?)

    I think you really just want to watch the first twenty minutes, then skip ahead until you find some few minutes of silliness. There’s a disco dance thing that’s kind of funny. But no, I couldn’t watch this straight through.
