The Final Frontier

Starcrash (1978)

This is a pretty fun Star Wars rip-off with a lot of cheese and some great (cheapie) FX using a lot of miniatures and stop-motion Harryhausen-esque robots. I love that! There are some very odd things in here involving space's atmosphere and a robot with the voice of a late-19th century gold prospector. That, and the multitude of space thongs, aside there is tons of great color in here and the Blu-Ray transfer is gorgeous. You can now see the full vibrance of the out-of-focus Christmas light looking stars and the rainbow colored floating space city. Oh, and David Hasselhoff!

There are some better posters for this but I felt like including the one that most ripped off Star Wars. I had a good laugh when I saw it.
