...We just cut up our girlfriend with a chainsaw. Does that sound "fine"?

The mother of all Star Wars rip-offs is Starcrash. A laugh out loud space opera that is so ridiculous it blows me to the back wall each time I view it.

Carolyn Munro (70's hottie!) stars in this intergalatic adventure. Its all here. The bad dialogue, spaceships, droids and a planet of scantily clad amazon women in leather outfits lookin' right. The special effects are so freakin' horrible it will leave you speechless. This being an Italian rip-off the actors are also badly dubbed just to make it even worse. Worse in the have a smoke and crack a brew kinda way.

I'll sum it up in 4 simple words: David Hasselhoff lightsabre battle!
Please tell me they have Starcrash action figures. If so, I want the bald green guy shown below.

Lock on to the trailer below. Stay on target, stay on target...

You would think that the Hoff would steal the show in this one but in fact, it's Marjoe Goertner who's the real STAR.

My personal favorite is the Philipino title:

"Star Battle Encounters"

Of course to capitalize on the success of "Star Wars", "Battlestar Galactica", & "Close Encounters of the Third Kind".

For those who are fans of "Star Crash" & have not seen "Marjoe" [1972]; go & watch it NOW. You owe yourself; & besides, it was HUGE in Deutschland.

*Marjoe's last name is spelled "Gortner"

*To clarify; you owe yourself a viewing of BOTH films mentioned

That is the best trailer I've ever seen - I don't want to ruin it by seeing the movie.
