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.
Paramount Home Entertainment has announced the release of a Limited Collector’s Edition Blu-ray Steelbook for Galaxy Quest for the film’s 20th anniversary.
The special “Never Give Up, Never Surrender” 20th anniversary edition for the 1999 scifi action-comedy will be released on September 21, 2019 for purchase exclusively at Best Buy, and contains a host of bonus features, which are listed here below.

“You’d be surprised what you’ll be willing to do, when the Lamia comes for you.”
In 2009, Sam Raimi, the filmmaker behind low-budget cult classics like The Evil Dead, Evil Dead II, and Army of Darkness, returned to the horror genre with a vengeance with Drag Me to Hell.
Produced by Raimi and Rob Tapert‘s Ghost House Pictures and distributed by Universal Pictures, Drag me to Hell is like an off-the-rails dark ride at a demonic carnival – a gloriously over-the-top slapstick splatter-fest that delivers seismic shivers to the central nervous system.

Screenwriter: Victor Salva

Rated R | 104 Minutes

Disclaimer: In all good conscience, I cannot review Scream Factory’s new Blu-ray release of Jeepers Creepers without mentioning filmmaker Victor Salva”˜s past. In 1988, Salva was convicted of sexual misconduct with the 12-year-old star of Clownhouse, his first feature film. Salva pleaded guilty to lewd and lascivious conduct, oral copulation with a person under 14, and three counts of procuring a child for pornography. He was sentenced to three years in prison, of which he served 15 months. He completed his parole in 1992, nine years before the release of Jeepers Creepers. I leave it to you to decide if separating the art from the artist is applicable in this instance.
The first trailer for Clerks, Mallrats, and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back director Kevin Smith‘s latest movie, Yoga Hosers, has been released online and it sure is a wacky looking one.
The movie stars Harley Quinn Smith and Lily-Rose Depp as a pair of teenage yoga loving convenience store workers who seek the help of a legendary manhunter named Guy Lapointe (Johnny Depp) when a terrible ancient evil, an invasion of tiny anthropomorphic Nazi bratwurst (played by Smith), threatens the big party they’ve been invited to. See, wacky! It is the second part in Smith’s True North trilogy following Tusk.
