4.0 out of 5 stars Twice The Cheese For Your B-Movie Needs! September 22, 2008
Format:DVD
"Star Odyssey" (originally called "Sette Uomini D'oro Nello Spazio," literally, "Seven Men of Gold in Space" as near as I can translate) wanted so badly to be "Star Wars" that it even had anthropomorphized robots with emotions, Tilk and Tilly, and an evil guy wearing a black cape with a suspiciously force-like abilities. Sound familiar? Truly, this is one of the most poorly executed films I have ever seen, but it is so bad as to be hilarious to watch.

The film opens with bad electronic music (repeated throughout the film at random, inappropriate times) that is akin to the theme from "Pod People." The first thing I noted was that the box and the credits can't agree on how to spell the name of the star of the film, Yanti Sommer. Or is it Yanti Somer? (Actually, the second seems to be correct, given other movie credits.) The first thing that becomes obvious is that the sets are very cheesy, and the dubbing to English matches, as does the acting: apparently there is no Italian word for "subtle." The cast has it all, including an extremely annoying actor whose name is "Hollywood" evidently because he is so good looking. This is a premise that I don't think anyone will buy, especially after one look at his mustache: he plays one third of a torrid and confusing love triangle. Also featured throughout are really bad computer "voices" that are perhaps the lamest things I have ever heard.

There is some expository information about how a superior world will be enslaving the earth shortly, which is illustrated by black and white world war two blitzkrieg footage of explosions edited jarringly into the film. To help combat the looming menace the heroes enlist the help of a crazy professor with a telepathically controlled medicine chest.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not very interesting January 21, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This doc is rather disjointed and without perspective....a much better and more interesting doc is "some kind of monster", which shows the band in therapy in order to complete an album

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun b-movie January 16, 2010
Format:DVD
I only saw Star Oddyssey, the other movie is not on my version of the disc. But Odyssey was a hoot. Break out the Cheese Whiz!!! As cheesy as this movie is, it is glorius fun to watch. An alien ship is on its way to earth, and our ships fail to stop it. The aliens begin to blow up cities, and refuse answer Earth's attempts to contact them, about it as we are lowly savages in their minds. The aliens are dealing with yet another group of alien races in an auction to purchase the planet and enslave us. The Earth space force attempts to get help to fight back from a reclusive scientific genius, who seems a bit alien himself and has tremendous telepathic powers. For some reason he has to recruit another guy with telepathic powers in order to control a space captain for the purpose of stealing a ship to use against the aliens, even though it is clear the Earth force would have let him borrow the keys since they asked for his help to begin with...? The scientist instructs his daughter to aid the space captain rescue some girl from a space prison, probably so they can show us her go-go boots & outfit.

Anyway, the aliens have large teams of bold commando androids that carry energy swords, like light sabers. There are robots galore, a r2-d2 type type robot that whistles and chirps, a professional boxing/wrestling robot named Hercules that fights in the human vs robot league; a pair of robots in love that are brought back from the scrapyard, and more. There are guys that backflip and somersault around while fighting, but the fight scenes are not too bad. The spaceship models all look pretty cool, the swords are actually not bad for this budget, the costumes are very disco but not cheap-looking. The makeup effects for the aliens are not bad either. All in all, this 1970's b-movie would be a great midnight special cult favorite, and I am glad we stumbled on it.
