3.0 out of 5 stars Star Warp'd Succeeds Where Spaceballs Failed Oct. 29 2002
Format:DVD
This 32 minute Claymation movie, which bears all the signs of being a student film project produced on a budget of four packs of bubblegum and a cheese sandwich, does have a redeeming virtue. Unlike the live-action, multimillion dollar budgeted Spaceballs from Mel Brooks, this offering by Pete Schuermann & his band of fellow SF fans is moderately amusing instead of draggingly dull. It's clear that they, unlike Brooks, actually understand the genre, a necessity before it can be sent up.
The plot is simple. A warp in the fabric of spacetime has thrown Darth Vader, James Kirk and Mr. Spock (Star Warp'd uses satirical names, but it's easier to write it this way) into our universe in the present day. Kirk and Spock are informed by 2001's Starchild that the Monolith controlling spacetime is broken and they must fix it before the multiverses fall into a state of complete higgledy-piggledy. (Starchild sounds and acts remarkably like Sean Connery, by the by.) Vader summons the Alien, the Terminator and something I think is supposed to be the Predator to fight for the Bad Guys; while Kirk and Spock summon Robocop and E.T. to fight for the good guys, and they have it out in a way that suggests Celebrity Deathmatch at the World Science Fiction Convention.
The action is mostly an amalgam of the high points in Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back; but there are cameos and homages to The X-Files, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, The War of the Worlds, Dr. Strangelove, T.J. Hooker and even the old Roadrunner-Wile E. Coyote cartoons.

4.0 out of 5 stars Oh, Give Me a Break. Oct. 19 2002
By tvtv3
Format:DVD
There are a lot of parody films out. The bulk of these are sci-fi parodies, poking fun or hilariously saluting great sci-fi movies. Many of them are just plain awful, with terrible writing and bad acting. STAR WARP'D isn't like that. The acting can't be bad because it's just a bunch of clay puppets and the writing is great, stealing not only characters but lines from great movies as well.
Now, granted there are a lot of poop jokes here. Farting falls in the realm of very crudish, low brow humor. It's the kind of thing that little kids find funny. It's also the kind of thing that shows you aren't taking yourself too seriously, thereby avoiding possible legal troubles while at the same time expanding your potential market base.
Anyway, the plot of the story basically has characters (well, they are warped versions of the characters) from several sci-fi movies in the same universe because the space-time continuum has been torn apart by a mysterious object, a Monolith. The good guys from Star Trek are trying to keep the Monolith from being stolen by the bad guys from STAR WARS. What ensues is cool, hilarious parody.
The DVD includes a four-minute preview of the possible upcoming sequel, an audio commentary by the film's makers, and some behind the scenes footage.

scifi people are so darn picky and uptight as you see from the reviews here. the truth is this was the funniest scifi parody i have seen since hardware wars and this was really a lot funnier than that. the clay work was rough but still funny and the rest of it was really good. relax your insane expectations all you scifi geeks,, for the price this one is a keeper! whats wrong with fart jokes anyway? kids like that sort of thing and so did i. if you want a more sophisticated show go rent 2001 and go to sleep in ten minutes or for dark humor try pretending you're "Data" and have your friend play Picard with you in the basement.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unfunny and unoriginal parody July 25 2002
Format:DVD
On paper this looks good: take some of the most recognizable characters from science fiction, give them funny names a la Mad Magazine, and create 30 minutes of hilarity. The only real problem is that the creators of Star Warp'd forgot to do anything remotely funny with this series. Darth Vader is represented as "Darth Vapor" and uses "the dark smell of the Force." This basically means 30 minutes of fart and poop jokes. If that's your idea of a good time, it's your money...
