Galaxina stars Dorothy Stratten in this beloved sci-fi parody which chronicles the adventures of the starship Infinity where Captain Cornelius Butt finds himself playing mommy to a baby alien while handsome crewman Thor falls in love with the beautiful robot pilot Galaxina and tries to turn her into a real woman.
Crater Lake Monster is set in Crater Lake, Oregon, the site of a meteor landing that causes a long-buried dinosaur egg to hatch. The creature quietly stalks the countryside and finds the locals as a good food source. The mysterious deaths confound the authorities until the dinosaur finally reveals his presence to the townspeople.
Galaxina is presented in 2.35:1
Crater Lake is presented in 1.85:1

With big-screen high definition blu-ray home theaters now commonplace, it's about time GALAXINA has finally arrived on blu-ray disc. On the down side, this blu-ray edition contains none of the many "Special Features" included in the 25th Anniversary dvd package. The plus side, however, more than makes up for it: the version of GALAXINA on this blu-ray is the longer "International Cut", previously unseen in the U.S.! The picture quality looks (obviously) better than ever, and the original sound mix (no 5.1 here) does just fine.
The 2nd feature, "Crater Lake Monster", is not worth reviewing; it will only appeal to fans of "really bad monster movies", although I imagine there are quite a few of those out there. (A much better double-feature would have included VAN NUYS BLVD., the 1979 comedy by Galaxina's director.)
When this blu-ray was first released, GALAXINA itself, as a movie, took quite a beating from internet critics, the so-called experts from various "official" blu-ray disc reviews sites.Read more ›
This movie was great, silly funny spoof of outer space movies, too bad it was one of the very few movies that starred Dorothy Stratten, really well done considering its budget and the time it was made
I've always been a cult comedy and sci-fi movie buff, and this has some hilarious scenes, including the colony of space bikers who worship their Lord, "Ha-Ley David San AH-OOM, AH-OOM." Rock Eater utters his famous insult at the Captain, and don't forget THE BLUE STAR.
Galaxina is always calm, cool, shockingly electric in more than just design, and of course there are the typical crew of space cowboys with one who wants to be more than a crewmate with Galaxina, just to mix it up with the hero/heroine approach. I think the director did a wonderful job at corny comedy sci-fi,
Originally released on the now defunct HD DVD. Its a welcome addition to Bluray
This should be 2.35 Anamorphic,the HD DVD Version was (CONFIRMED)
GALAXINA is a sort of spoof of space adventures done several years before Mel Brooks gave us SPACEBALLS. While watching GALAXINA for the first time in literally decades, I found the laughs a little thin but genuine. The cast seemed to be enjoying themselves and given what looks to be a fairly constrictive budget, the VFX are pretty inventive and ambitious. The late Dorothy Stratten portrays the title android. She is about the most beautiful thing ever. So sad what happened to her. Avery Schreiber, a rotund, mop-topped comedian with a huge mustache who was fairly popular in the 1970's plays Capt. Cornelius Butt. He's probably the best 'actor' of the entire cast, but that's not saying much. The majority of the other actors debuted & disappeared with this one film, and deservedly so. There is some pretty harsh language in this, so be careful about letting the young 'uns screen it without an adult present, if that sort of thing concerns you. The picture & sound quality for GALAXINA are okay but nothing special. There's a noticeable amount of dirt & grit throughout and the sharpness is disappointingly soft. Colors are over-saturated in many scenes and there's heavy color bleeding in several others. Still, it's nice to have this goofy sci-fi parody in a respectable home video edition.Read more ›
As far as the Crater Lake Monster, forget it. It thought it was boring.Read more ›
