Galaxy Raiders (2017).

Although I watched it under its older name: “Star Raiders: The Adventures of Sabre Raine”.

I also watched the Rifftrax version and frankly I cannot recommend any other way of watching this movie.

Let’s talk about Sabre Raine. Branded a traitor for helping a female lizard person escape, he’s a renegade on the run in a spaceship that needs a periscope. On a remote planet he meets some bodyguards with serious cases of pinkeye, who are looking for a missing prince and princess.

The young prince is about to become king with the demise of his father (although his sister is clearly older, so it’s no surprise that her frustration at this clearly backward law of inheritance manifests by her becoming a total red corset wearing, black face mask donning, villain of the piece.)

There are some extraordinary leaps of faith required in partaking of this movie. I don’t even know where to begin. It’s pretty dire but not nearly as bad as Grindelwald. I suppose the only thing to say is that I’ve been to more convincing live action role-plays.
