Blu-ray Review: Galaxy Quest 20th Anniversary Steelbook Edition
  |  @   |  

Galaxy Quest
Limited Edition 20th Anniversary Steelbook Blu-ray
Best Buy Exclusive
Directed by Dean Parisot
Story by David Howard; Screenplay by David Howard & Robert Gordon
Cast: Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shalhoub, Sam Rockwell, Enrico Colantoni, Daryl Mitchell, Sam Rockwell, Justin Long
Paramount Home Entertainment
Release date: September 21, 2019

Back in 1999, Dean Parisot made a little movie called Galaxy Quest, a scifi-adventure comedy starring Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, and Alan Rickman, which at first glance seemed like a parody — and a poke at — scifi franchises like Star Trek. There’s the cast of a cancelled 1970s science fiction television series forced to eke out a living at science fiction fan conventions and grand opening store promotions 20 years after their heyday. Said cast resents the show’s main star, a scene-stealer who takes credit for their successes and often makes paid appearances without them. And there’s the rabid, geeky fans at the convention who seemingly can’t differentiate between an actor and the role he played.

But while Galaxy Quest is humorous in its parody of all those stereotypes, it turns out the film is actually a loving homage to science fiction and its loyal fans. And it’s perfect in every way.

Movie Review: Veronica Mars
  |  

Veronica Mars
Directed by Rob Thomas
Written by Rob Thomas, Diane Ruggiero
Starring: Kristen Bell, Krysten Ritter, Tina Majorino, Jason Dohring, Chris Lowell, Jerry O’Connell, Francis Capra, Ryan Hansen, Enrico Colantoni, Percy Daggs III
Running Time: 107 Minutes | PG-13
Warner Brothers
Release Date: March 14, 2014
Limited Theatrical Release, also available via iTunes and VOD
Partially Funded by Kickstarter

It’s been a long time coming, but my fellow marshmallows and I have finally gotten that Veronica Mars movie we have wanted, ever since the television series got cancelled. And if you are even familiar with Kickstarter, perhaps this was the reason you heard about, it wouldn’t have happened without all the fans who donated their money to make this happen. The project broke numerous records as they pulled their forces (91,585 people) and raised $5,702,153.

It started off as a small project, but word quickly spread and the rest is history, leading to this day, when we can walk into a theater and see Veronica Mars on the big screen. As of now, it is showing in limited theaters, for me, my local AMC theaters, but I know it’s expanding into another theater in a few weeks. I am guessing how many more will depend on how well the movie does at the box office. According to Box Office Mojo, it earned just over a million on late Thursday and Friday screenings.

But was it worth the wait? Was it worth my donation? Let’s talk about that more later.
