You could do worse than watch "Galaxy Invader" (but you'd have to try really hard)
14 February 2015 | by lemon_magicSee all my reviews

3 stars out of 10 is just about right for this low budget 80s release which features dodgy performances, a drunken walk of a screenplay, cheaper than cheap special effects and an overall low resolution vibe that makes you wish you'd queued up the next movie in the Public Domain DVD collection you found this in instead of this one.

But "Galaxy Invader" isn't evil or vile or nasty or anything. Without knowing anything about Don Dohler other than that he made a lot of these things, I'd guess that he really WANTED to make sci fi and horror movies and did the best he could with the resources and budget he could get.If only he'd found a real writer to polish his dialog and plots, "Galaxy Invader" might have been a "5" or a "6". If he'd known how to actually direct his cast, "GI" might have even scored a "7".

So anyway...this movie won't make you retch or throw the DVD away in disgust or anything. It'll give you something to look at for 80+ minutes and give you an excuse to sit in front of the TV drinking beer. If that's what you really want, you should go for it.
