    It’s bad, but not “Merlin The Return” or “Gingerdead Man” bad.

    IIRC it was written by Peter David, and was a Good Bad kind of movie. But as I’ve said before, I have a soft spot for weird Westerns.

  5. I actually like these (there is a sequel that was shot at the same time) movies. They are cute and campy. Charming.

    I mean, you can make a serious space western like Outland (which is High Noon on Io), taking the theme and dropping the cowboy theme and background. But this did the complete opposite, kept the 1950s cowboy movie look and just added a space theme. The result is ridiculous, but that’s the point and what makes it great.

    It was produced by Charles Band during Full Moon’s heyday, so it’s “Bad, but, y’know, not really bad if it went in knowing it had a fun goofy premise” bad–This was supposed to be the “Big budget” one, if it could afford real stars like George Takei.
    More from the Trancers era of funny direct-video B-movie premises than Puppet Master, even if the alien/cyborg villain does look like the one from “Metalstorm: the Destruction of Jared-Syn”, back when Band WAS C-budget badbadbad.

    And, as MK&B no doubt pointed out between the odd Takei jokes, it doesn’t have Tom Cruise in it.

    Why do you watch these things when you hate them so much? Life’s too short to waste it on something you don’t like and don’t have to do.

    What, Full Moon Pictures? ;)
    Well, y’know, the first Trancers was actually pretty good, and some of the early Empire Pictures, like Zone Troopers and Re-Animator, some of the early cool Stuart Gordon pieces…Not the current name-only Puppet Master crap that’s being ground out for SyFy cable, though, no one’s going to blame anybody for hating that.
