Galaxy Quest review

Guy Fleegman: "Did you guys ever watch the show?" There are instances were the obsession crosses reality. Prime examples would be the cult following of Fight Club, Star Wars and Star Trek. The latter, being a direct homage to the popular show, was really well directed. Jason Nesmith (Tim Allen) is the egoistic commander Peter Quincy Taggart, the captain of the Protector. He encounters fans which in fact are real aliens seeking help from Sarris, who threatens the race of the Thermian people. Screenplay didn't feel forced or coy, with a few provocative lines: "It's the simple things in life you treasure." - Fred "I could try." - Tommy "Never give-up. Never surrender." - Mathesar/Jason. Has some cheese factor, a few flaws (gun at the end when it was destroyed, no scratches on the ship...

"Galaxy Quest" by Yojimbo

An alien race recruit the crew of the NSEA Protector to aid them in their fight against a galactic tyrant, unaware that they are just a bunch of washed up actors from a cancelled TV show. I'm not the biggest fan of Tim Allen, but he is spot on as the drunken egotistical has-been bickering with his equally well-played supporting cast in this surprisingly well made sci-fi spoof. The film is stolen out from under him (ironically, considering it's similarity with the target of the parody!) by Alan Rickman's Spock-like Dr. Lazarus, a Shakespearian actor pained by what his career has come to; the look of horror on his face when he has to utter the line "By Grabthar's hammer, what savings!" is priceless! With a knowing and witty script and effects and action sequences that shame most sci-fi that...

By Grabthar's hammer, we live to tell the tale.

I loved this movie from the moment I saw it. The cast is huge! Jason Nesmith (Tim Allen) the shows lead, and Allen portays him as the prefect self centered jerk, the guy that knew that he was the most beloved charcter on the tv show and he feels that he should be able to dictate the direction of the other cast members to keep his popularity as high as it was in its prime.
Alan Rickman is as awesome as ever playing Alexander Dane the charater that has been pidgeon holed into, even though he got sick of the roll years earlier. He had critical acclaim behind his acting years, but that would not keep the swarms of fans from begging for the only thing people wanted, to hear him utter his classic line over and over again.
Sigourney Weaver played Gwen DeMarco and she was the one that everyon...
