On Friday night, join us for a live-tweet-a-long as we watch Battle Beyond the Stars, a movie I was led out of, totally freaked out, when I was five.
It is in no way scary. I was a sensitive kid.
Watch at: Amazon Streaming or other popular streaming sites
Day: Friday, May 1st, 2020
Time: 8:30 PM Central
We're going to start when I say GO on twitter.
Get queued up to about the 3 second mark on the movie. Pause and wait on this image til you get the signal:
|it is really hard to get a screengrab of an Amazon Prime video. I am not spending time learning how to do it. Your reflection may vary.|
Then get ready to behold what happens when a small studios sees Star Wars, wants in on that money and decides "it's a western in space". Then proceeds to rip-off a very specific, very famous western/ samurai movie.
But this movie has B-movie Queen Sybil Danning as a Space Valkyrie with the rad-as-hell mid-80's new-romantic band name of "St. Exmin".
|I'm gonna fight on *her* team|
Also stars George Peppard as the embodiment of my spirit, Robert Vaughn as Robert Vaughn In Space, John Fuckin' Saxon!, Sam Jaffe and the guy who played John Boy on The Waltons, Richard Thomas, officially killing his chances at making it to the big screen. It also has a spaceship that, if memory serves, is trying to be both mother and lover to John Boy.
So, 8:30 PM Central time on Friday! 3 seconds in at that image above!
