Ice Pirates [DVD] [1984]

The silly sci-fi comedy section on your DVD shelf just got bigger, thanks to the hot Ice Pirates DVD from the fine folk at Warner Bros. Presented in its widescreen debut on the home screen, the 1.85:1 anamorphic image now delivers even more Ron Perlman and Robert Urich action in your own living room. The colors are rich, if not a bit dark during frequent moments in the film. Unfortunately, you won't be able to hear the dreaded Space Herpies in anything more than a Dolby Digital mono signal, a detriment that affects the score more than anything. Extras on the disc begin and end with the theatrical trailer, which should make fans giddy in their seats as soon as it is played. So, just like the movie, the DVD is a bit bootleg -- more like that skeleton in Warner Bros.' closet that they dressed up a bit to look good, but didn't think too much of it after that. In a way, it fits the film and, most likely, the fans will understand that and just be happy to finally have it on their shelf.

Synopsis

The Ice Pirates
In this undistinguished parody of the sci fi genre, Robert Urich is Jason who leads a band of pirates in redistributing the wealth of the few to the coffers of the needy. He also joins up with Princess Karina Mary Crosby in searching for her father and a possible source of water in the next galaxy. Meant to be a campy romp through the sci fi genre, the film stops short of achieving a goal that should have been effortless. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
