Trivia

"Lord Buckethead" attempted to promote his movie in the UK by standing as a prospective MP for Parliament in both the 1987 and 1992 General Elections. Representing the "Gremloid" party (by which this movie is known in the UK) he stood against Margaret Thatcher in her Finchley constituency and somehow got 131 votes. Five years later in 1992 he stood against the then PM John Major in Huntingdon and got 107 votes. In 2017, 25 years later, he stood again against then PM Theresa May in Maidenhead and got 249 votes.

The best Star Wars spoof
19 September 2005 | by davyboy999See all my reviews

This film is bar far the best Star Wars spoof.

Why? Because it's played completely straight through-out. It is very low budget (which adds to the appeal) but the actors are all spot on.

It's vital to have a knowledge of Star Wars, generic 50s/60s Sci-Fi B movies and Monty Python.

The plot is basically that Lord Buckethead, through a slight error whilst chasing the Princess who's stolen some secret transmissions, ends up on Earth convinced that the Princess is somewhere in small town USA. Strangely the locals are none the wiser.

The film reaches its climax with Lord Buckethead chasing the two heroes and a large scale battle between the Army and Lord Buckhead's spaceship with it's Death Ray.

Best line - "Seize the fritters!"
