Better than Spaceballs!
25 January 2018 | by bevanmccabeSee all my reviews

A hilariously knowing parody of low-budget science fiction film and TV shows. Have you ever thougth "Wouldn't it be cool if there was a film that ... " well, this is that film!

An alternate universe where everything seems to be not quite real and you can't help but be dragged along into the joke.

The story is basically a path through a series of sci-fi scenarios. There are aliens, space battles, teleportation, dastardly villains and laser guns.

There are nods to Doctor Who, Blakes 7, and many more. Another reviewer would probably get a different set of references to me, and that's part of its knowing charm.

While the props may be low-budget, the performances are excellent.

Some curse words make it inappropriate for young children (a shame, because it would otherwise be suitable for all ages)

Hilarious but drags out the gag a bit too long
