    Goodness Gracious! That is the largest graphic I've ever SEEN on ComicMix!I couldn't possibly agree more with this review. Galaxy Quest is a wonderful movie. I also like the fact that two of the stars have created two of the biggest "Space Opera" characters of all time, Ellen Ripley and Buzz Lightyear.

    I do have to add one caveat to the review – the opening convention is more typical of a comics/media convention (like DragonCon, for instance) than of a straight SF convention (like WorldCon).

    What a wonderful film. Rode the line between parody and tribute perfectly, great dialogue and all based on a story that's been written god only knows how many times by fans.Dunno if it's in the new copy, but there's a cut scene on the first release featuring Parker and Stone regular Dian "Little Bitch" Bachar as one of the Thermians. It also had a selection on the DVD menu for the Omega 13. If you tried to select BEFORE you watched the film, you got a spoiler warning. If you selected it AFTER watching the film, the Omega 13 activates, resinding the DVD 13 seconds, to the tail end of the credits. Very funny.Darryl "Chill" Mitchell was hilarious both here and in short-lived TV show Veronica's Closet. Ironically, seated in the Chekov position, he got to do a lot of screaming. Darryl suffered a spinal injury some years back,but even though he's in a wheelchair now, he's still quite a busy actor. Had a few good scenes in Spike Lee's "Inside Man" a while back. This was the first film we saw Sam Rockwell in, and we had the same feeling about him we did when we saw Marisa Tomei in Oscar, that we were going to hear from him again, and we didn't mean a postcard.Missi Pyle is another one of those actresses that is FAR funnier than people realize. Needs more work.
