A MOVIE NOT AFRAID TO SAY URANUS
on September 28, 2016
f you are a fan of Star Wars, Star Trek, 2001 and Alien and haven't seen this cult classic spoof, then by all means this is must see. The movie starts out with the Infinity Space Cruiser on traffic patrol. They are parked behind an asteroid, one that has a billboard on it. A ship which looks like a Romulan bird of prey passes by. It is piloted by a man who reminds us of Darth Vader. The captain is summoned to the bridge! As 2001 theme music is being played, our captain slowly appears on screen. It is Avery Schreiber (1935-2002) fresh off his gig as the Frito Bandito!
The crew is tasked to recover the Blue Star which is what the Darth Vader alien (Ordric from Mordric) is after. Due to her lack of acting ability, Dorothy Stratten (the subject of movie "Star 80") plays an android. While the movie contains "brief nudity"(Nancy McCauley) it is blurred and not that of Playmate Dorothy Stratten, as we would expect. This is not a sex comedy, although it uses sex as a comedy such as in the alien brothel.
Avery (Capt. Cornelius Butt) envisions himself as a witty sage philosopher. His jokes and sayings are terrible, but his crew (Stephen Macht, J.D. Hinton)
humors him. The ship has an alien prisoner who is a rock eater, but can't gnaw through metal bars. Movie includes Playmate Susan Kiger (blue girl at brothel) and the Lord, Har Lee David Son. Bartine Burkett Zane (1898-1994), whose movie career started in 1917, plays a bit part as Whistler's Mother.
A few F-bombs.
