Editorial Reviews

M-G-M's The Ice Pirates (1984) was a sci-fi film best understood as falling between Star Wars and Spaceballs-on the budget of Battle Beyond the Stars. The Ice Pirates starred Robert Urich as the captain of a group of quirky space pirates whose quest for water (the galaxy's scarcest commodity) entwinces them in a cosmic love story; Mary Crosby, Michael D. Roberts, Anjelica Huston, Ron Perlman, John Matuszak, John Carradine and Bruce Vilanch are among the costars. Unlike most of the straight-laced Star Wars knock-offs, The Ice Pirates consciously winked at its influences, with humorous takes on Alien (a "space herpe"), time travel and castration-by-assembly line. Composer Bruce Broughton-one year before exploding on the feature scene with Young Sherlock Holmes and Silverado-did his best to capture The Ice Pirates' wild shifts in tone with a blend of Korngoldesque fanfares, exciting action music (primarily for brass and woodwinds), driving '80s pop/rock percussion and keyboards, and a haunting, electronic love theme. The film benefited from a strong thematic approach and Broughton's consummate skill-the main theme is darn catchy. Faced with limited resources, Broughton devised an orchestra that consisted primarily of brass, winds and pop/rock rhythm section.

Movie soundtracks are my favorite genre of music, and I own a LOT of them. So I know what I'm talking about here.
I highly recommend this product to fans of the movie. Not only for the music itself, but for the information the CD's booklet provides on the movie.

First, the music. This soundtrack is complete, featuring virtually the entire movie's music. (This is not always the case with movie soundtracks.) The songs sound exactly as they do in the film, except for a few moments of electric guitar music in the opening theme that is not present in the film.

The CD booklet describes how the music was written, and also provides information about the movie's writing and production in general. If any fans were disappointed that the DVD did not have any commentary, you might find the booklet's information quite interesting.

The music is very upbeat, and at times "trippy." It's fun to have playing while you do your homework or clean your room, or during a long car ride. If you have any creative hobbies like drawing or writing, it's also great to listen to while working; it can get you right in the mood for sci-fi or fantasy.
