Title: The Ice Pirates

Thank-you for the review. I might have to see it again. While I saw it, when it was first released to theaters, the only thing that made an impression on me, or, at least, the only thing I remember about the film, was Anjelica Huston. Thank-you again for the review.

Ah, this is a classic! It's one of those movies where you can just tell the cast had fun. I think that's what makes the film so infectious. It would be just another dumb movie otherwise. I saw it during its theatrical run when I was in junior high, and it still inspires a chuckle.

Certainly this and Krull on DVD give new hope to the multitides of fun flicks we all love just waiting for a release.  

Urich's best work in my opinion.  The whole cast has a great time.  They don't make em like this anymore.  

Favorite scene is certainly the time warping bit.  But I also like the robot pimp.  It's all so Buck Rogers it's refreshing that it's way better than that 80s show ever was.

Ah yessss. One of my favorites to fall asleep to on a quiet Saturday afternoon. I do remember this from my teenage years.
Wonderful little flick.

My friends and I watched this movie expecting it to laugh at it for being horrible.  We did laugh the entire time, but every bit of humor was intentional on the part of the film.  I turned out to be one of the best films I've seen in quite some time.

I saw this movie opening weekend with my best friend when I was 11 (saw it the same day as "Tank".  I love it!  The day I found it on VHS years ago was like Christmas.  They really could use a Special Edition DVD/BluRay for this.

Just Talking about Pitch Black, and The Chronicles of Riddick, and talking about certain parts in the movie, and how I hope that the make a Presequal to Pitch Black
and at the end of the Conversation I make a comment about hope he (Riddick) didnt catch "Space Herpies"
and the fellow worker started to smile - knowning what that comment meant
Even now that movie still makes people smile, because it was a funny show, Maybe Stupid at the time,
but its a show that people still remember to this day!!!

My dad took me to see this in the summer of 1984. As funny as it was in the movie theater, it has gotten even funnier over the years every time I watch it; the sign of a true classic! This is easily Robert Urich's best film, this and the tiny part that he had in Magnum Force (1973) when Dirty Harry killed him.

The time warp and the space herpe fiasco are my two favorite parts of the movie, but there are so many good parts scattered throughout that it's hard to pick any one scene that is better than the others. Plus, the multitude of talented actors caught "slumming" in this movie is hilarious in and of itself; Angelica Houston, Ron Perlman, John Carradine, etc.

Things I enjoy from this website: I learn something new every day. I did not know that the hot princess in this movie is Bing Crosby's daughter until today! I did not know that was John Carradine in this movie either.
