Galaxy Quest Re-Released On DVD

Filed under very obvious cash-in, Galaxy Quest has been re-released on DVD in a Deluxe Edition. Containing stuff (see below). I never really liked Galaxy Quest, too many Star Trek jokes, not enough real comedy.

  • Historical Documents: The Story of GALAXY QUEST—Actors and filmmakers discuss how GALAXY QUEST came together, why it still works today and what they think of the film 10 years later.  Includes new interviews with Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shalhoub, Sam Rockwell, Daryl Mitchell, Justin Long, Missi Pyle, Enrico Colantoni and respected Star Trek feature film writer and director Nicholas Meyer.
  • Never Give Up, Never Surrender: The Intrepid Crew of the NSEA Protector—This featurette celebrates one of the most talented and diverse casts of fake sci-fi actors of all time.
  • By Grabthar’s Hammer, What Amazing Effects— Explores the special effects, visual effects and creature effects created by ILM and famed effects artist Stan Winston.
  • Alien School – Creating the Thermian Race— The story of how actor Enrico Colantoni developed the voice and manner of an alien race.
  • Actors in Space—Delves deep into the psyche of a cast the likes of which have never been seen together before.
  • Sigourney Weaver Raps—Needs no further explanation.
  • Deleted Scenes (previously released)
  • Thermian Audio Track (previously released)
  • Theatrical Trailer (previously released)

    It's actualy kinda' fun if you squint and pretend that this is the movie the TOS cast made in 1979. Otherwise, yeah, it's noteability is based entirely upon hanging on the coattails of a pop culture phenomenon. In that sense it's up there with Neil Diamond's "Heartlight" for relevance...
