Just saw this for the first time on Sunday, the movie did indeed have phenomenal models and it's amazing to see this one. Especially with a good scale reference of just how big these things were. Amazing
Starcrash is one of my guilty pleasures. I had some friends sit down with me and watch the Blu-ray last year and we gave it the MST3K treatment (but in good fun). The ships are very clear on the screen and you can even make out some of the aircraft model bits, like tires that are still on sprues. I still love the attack sequence on Zarth Arn's ship, with the human torpedoes flying through the windows. It's ridiculous fun, but reminds me of the old movie serials.Good stuff!
i love the work that went into the models for this amazing and cheesy movie!
One of my favorite sci fi movies. Gotta love Stella Star. The book is not so bad either.
I was unaware of this. Do you know that "Zarth Arn" is the name of a character from Edmond Hamilton's "The Star Kings" (and its sequel, "Return to the Stars")?
