Only in the 80's could this have been made...

The Ice Pirates is far from one of my favorite sci fi movies from the 80's. In fact, I remember not liking this when I was a kid. I have chose to give this an adult rewatch and while I can't exactly call this "good", it deserves some merit for being possibly the cheesiest 80's movie ever made. The Ice Pirates is about as silly of a swashbuckling sci fi romp, that is camp and absurdity that goes way past 11. The cast is filled with some notable actors, like Robert Urich (who shows a lot of charisma), Angelica Huston and Ron Perlman in his film debut. However, The Ice Pirates is pretty bad, with lots of dumb humor, slapstick, ridiculous outfits and plot holes galore. I did appreciate how crazy this movie is and how far they took it over the top. This was too cheesy for me in the 80's and while The Ice Pirates is not a very good movie, I was amazed by how far the filmmakers went with the stupidity and insanity of this film. For that, this movie is totally off the wall and completely bonkers entertainment that is a campy cult film that is in its own class.

Where Water is the Real Spice

In some dystopian future, water (instead of spice) is the most valuable substance in the universe and on the hunt for riches pirates are trying to board transport-ships filled with ice. In the same year published as Lynch's interpretation of Herbert's classic Dune, The Ice Pirates is another classic sci-fi. Okay, it is a B-Movie but it got lots of fine ideas, a good shot of humor and some good actors like Ron Perlman and Robert Urich. What we get is sword fights, fighting robots, time warps, and the eternal war of man and woman (in love). If you like sci-fi and if you like comedies, this one is definitely a watch for you.

Silly pastiche of Star Wars and The Road Warrior

Humour often dates poorly and "The Ice Pirates" is a case in point: the future as an 'extension of the eighties' generates more laughs at the film than with the film. Having not watched the movie when it came out, I couldn't filter it through fond memories, so I was stuck watching, de novo, 90 minutes of goofy slapstick and silly, predictable gags. Given what they have to work with, the acting is OK (they all seem to be having fun in the roles). If the Academy ever does a tribute to Angelica Huston, I hope they include some of the iconic images of her in her space pirate outfit
