FAQ

So where are all the men exactly?
Why don't you just admit that this farrago is rife with paradigmatic tropes that objectify the 'femme' and stereotypically reinforce the patriarchy in a poisonously hateful and demeaning way?
What's that word?

Hilarious cliche-ridden sci-fi fun, 23 October 1998
Author: David Elson from New York, NY

Steve Rhodes (newsgroup review) sums it up best when he says, "'Queen of Outer Space' is a parody of science fiction films. Whether it meant to be so at the time is another question." This is prime material for MST3K (very similar to "Fire Maidens from Outer Space"), but they might be avoiding "Queen" because it almost makes fun of itself. It reeks of cardboard sets, silly dialogue, and more phallic symbols, hot babes, and sexual innuendo than you can wave a stick (or laser gun) at. The astronauts ride in Lay-Z-Boy chairs and Zsa Zsa Gabor is a real treat. Never taking itself seriously, it's the "Austin Powers" of the sci-fi genre.
