Following the passing of the great Alan Rickman, NowTV had a section on “Remembering Alan Rickman” which although largely containing Harry Potter films, I noticed a film I’d heard of but never bothered to watch….Galaxy Quest!
I was pleasantly surprised! It’s basically a spoof of most sci-fi films but especially Star Trek (Tim Allen’s “Commander” character has similarities with Shatner’s Kirk). Alan Rickman plays “jaded” fantastically well and it was interesting to see Sigourney Weaver play the very anti-thesis of Ellen Ripley!
There were plenty laughs and fun poked at popular sci-fi tropes…well worth a watch!
