Battle Beyond the Stars (1980)

This was just added to the streaming services at Shoutfactorytv.com and wow is it a stinker but it has an amazing list of has been cameo actors each with their own little side stories and worlds. The Battle for the Stars should be referencing that all the cast were stars in some shape or form even if none of them were major stars. The main point of the story is just another Corman star wars ripp off but instead of hiring han solo it’s a whole movie about hiring random mercenaries which is more about that search than the battle itself. Like Star Wars meets Suicide Squad.

 These Star Wars ripp offs that Corman made would be so much more acceptable if they didn’t all use the same theme song. Great song but Sorceress, Space Raiders and a few more use this same damn song which comes off seeming so silly.  The random pre used alien costumes are laughable as well. Mixing character designs from the era of Hercules 2 and Star Crash mixed with Shape of things to come and Airplane 2 .. seriously it’s that mixed up. Made in 1980 with some characters looking as cheap as the original Star Trek (check out George Peppard as a space cowboy)

When the crew of mercenaries finally form all looking and feeling like they come from separate comic book series. It does feel like a wild marvel cross over in space. Which sounds better than it really is. Then the battle happens and well yeah its pretty much like every other grindhouse sci fi then. 

Sit back and watch into deep space with John Boy Walton is the fake Luke Skywalker that has to grow up fast and lead a bunch of anti heros to save his planet from being destroyed by the evil alien John Saxon.

 I am shocked it took me this long to see this movie even that it isn’t that special it is a must for 80s schlock completists.

Terrordactyle (2016)

Terrordactyle (2016)

A simple and stupid sci fi tv network released cgi monster movie comedy.  In the vein of Lavalantula and every MEga Shark movie we get Pterodactyls from space.  This stands out cause the characters are much better (still all losers but) than the plastic Megashark and whatever monster vs whatever monsters of late. Also not as obnoxious as the Lavalantula and Sharknados guys. Two dumb dudes find a meteorite which ends but being an egg along with the invading flock of near a 1000 more pterodactyls from space. They are joined by a bar waitress that just happens to be a weapons expert and very educated in meteorites. She didn’t need to be that smart cause the two main dudes are so dumb you did not have to impress us to show us she is way smarter then them. Also joined by a creepy old drunk marine that happens to have a lot of weapons thus somehow making this motley crew a better then to the invading monsters then the police and local military were.  This movie is close to Big Ass Spider just not AS funny. Yet not as awful as the million of asylum type movies that are exactly like this. Decent actors (for this kind of schlock crap movie) and shockingly decent cgi and practical monsters (practical when the monsters are dead so they don’t have to move) Great monster jumbo sized climax that also puts it up there with Big Ass Spider or the great uncle of these flicks 8 Legged Freaks.. just with giant and sometimes extra giant flying dino birds.

Dark Breed made in 1996 for PM Entertainment, …

Dark Breed made in 1996 for PM Entertainment, directed by Richard Pepin (the guy who made almost all the PM Entertainment films) Huge explosion and overly intense action with little consequences.  Staring the always hilariously out of place Jack Scalia and a side character of Lance Legault playing a military big whig which he does in every single role he ever played and Buck Flower playing a hobo again like he does in every role he is in too. Jack Scalia is an ex astronaut now military cop that goes after a bunch of run away astronauts that he knew from his past. Thing is the night the astronauts crashed back on earth everyone finds they are possessed by aliens making them unstoppable killing machines. Its up to the overly intense and amazingly action cliched Jack Sacalia to hunt them down and find out what there evil plot is. Like all PM flicks it starts with a huge highway chase that ends in a huge explosion and many flip cop cars. Then stalls out for a while in character having cliche flash backs to hint towards their troubled lives. The runaway astronauts get themselves in trouble as the evil aliens inside them make them go around ripping everyone’s heads off. Early on you know what you are getting in when Jack Scalia shoots at one of the runaway astronauts with a bazooka playing up their van. It takes a few seconds but you realise that was before Jacks character (Nick) knew they were evil aliens. You stop and think “wait a minute he was just shooting a regular guy with that bazooka for no reason at all”.  Awkward editing and storytelling in amazing alien in an urban setting action flick. The pacing and music ques lets you know this movie thought it was equal to Predator 2 but if it got really drunk before getting going. I did enjoy it though as it’s basically just a much more chaotic take on the HIDDEN ..again not as good as the Hidden but would have made a better sequel then Hidden 2 was. 

As brain damaged as this movie is, after years of using the trailer for this movie in mash up clips I am glad I finally sat down and watch it all. Alien movie go boom boom… dumb dumb movie me likey. lol
