Collared bikinis and a young Hasselhoff fighting a robot with a light saber.

The new season of MST3K did a great job on this one already.
Someone should consolidate the three Starcrash suggestions and combine the tally....
This is an absolute must for RiffTrax! This is the type of bad movie that's perfect for RiffTrax: funny bad, not bad bad. The addition of the guys making fun of it would result in a wonderful synergy of funny. Please consider it!
This movie is adorably crummy. It was a cash-in on the success of Star Wars, but it is more like a cross between Flash Gordon and a Ray Harryhausen flick. The robot's strange switch of accents, Caroline Munro's various outfits, Christopher Plummer playing it as straight as he could, a pre-Knight Rider David Hasselhoff and a bad guy who can swish cape with the best of 'em.
Bad stop-motion robots, Christopher Plummer stopping time, Marjoe Gortner, and THE HOFF! You gotta do it!
Yes, this movie was incredibly bad, they were able to locate a spaceship, in space, because of their friction trail they left.
They probably don't need to riff it, just show it, it's bad enough that they did their own riffing
This movie is a festering turd of awful hilarity. Writing the jokes will be too easy!
Such a great Star Wars ripoff. The music of John Barry (from the James Bond films) which sounds like it's trying to be Strauss in 2001 a Space Odyssey. Christopher Plummer slumming it. Bad stop motion. The inexplicable Southern robot. So much riffable crap.
We just rewatched this and are happy to report that it is very riffable. It takes a while for The Hoff to show up, but there's plenty to laugh at all the way through. A third-grader could have written a better script than this.
Giving it 3 points. PLEASE. DO. THIS ONE! I will pay cash money!
Marjoe Gortner....that's all that needs to be said.
Saw this in the theater as a kid. It was just like Star Wars! ...well not quite.
