Magnificent.

"I love you, Alex Rogan!"

I laughed out lout when the flight engineer was trying to restore power in the gunstar and he held up a circuit board with some leds and a 9 volt battery snap connector.

I loved every minute.

How the hell did that get released on Bluray??

At a buck rental it was not worth it.

I LIKED the cheesiness of that movie. Of course it's been like 25 years since I've seen it, so my perception might be off...

Cheesy is an understatement. The musical score ripped off raiders of the lost ark. But the story is good. And as silly as this movie is I wish more modern movies could tell a story this well.

Hey, c'mon...it got 4 1/2 out of 5 Starfighters on Amazon!

Is "Cheesy" the new "good"?

I liked it when I was a kid. I'm kinda afraid to watch it now.

I recall not liking it as a kid and I was a HUGE SciFi nerd. I can't really remember why though so perhaps I'll watch it again. What could happen?

I liked it as a kid, but now that I am re-remembering it, I am sure that it would seem so full of cheese and low budget feel if I watched it again today.

Hmm... maybe its an age/scifi fan thing for me. I wasn't a kid when I watched it, and it fails as scifi, at least to me.
