Starcrash (1978)

Starcrash is an Italian-made Star Wars knock-off, and it’s bad. Really bad. But it’s the kind of bad that’s cheesy, campy, and ultimately entertaining for those who enjoy such things.

Fortunately, Caroline Munro is spectacularly gorgeous and scantily clad (in true Barbarella style) throughout the entire movie as sexy and gutsy space pirate Stella Star.

Stella and her buddies are conscripted by the galactic emperor to stop the evil Count Zarth Arn (Joe Spinell) from taking over the universe.

Thank heavens for Christopher Plummer, (pictured at right) who can deliver the most ridiculous, inane dialogue as if it were Shakespeare.
