I LOVE Galaxy Quest.

It was an instant hit with me, and in my view highly underrated.

It gets viewed on a frequent if not regular basis.

While getting sucked into a YouTube rabbit hole, I found a 23min video discussing the movie, WTF Happened to the Movie.

The channel examines various movies with an inside baseball persepctive.

Not a ture behind the scenes documentary, it does have a lot of interesting background and clips of Galaxy Quest.

I don't care much for the presentation but the content is enjoyable, at least for Quest fans, I imagine.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

But I agree, the narration leaves a lot to be desired.

I bet I've seen it 8 or 10 times.

I’ll have to check it out.

And to cover all the bases - don’t forget about the documentary “Never Surrender”. I think it’s still available for free on Amazon Prime.

We love GX! We laughed SO HARD the first time we watched, we often had to pause and rewind to see many scenes.

"Why do we even HAVE this room ? "

It's a perfect send up, and the acting at all levels is awesome. Fourth walls within fourth walls....

Yeah, I could leave that looping on the TV for awhile.

But it's been spoiled a bit by Tim Allen. It's not so much fun as it was.

Absolutely brilliant film. Pretty much flawless.

"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

I also love Galaxy Quest. Tony Shaloub owns all of his scenes. "That was a hell of a thing."

Back in the day, I coached first base for the kids' little league team. My daughter reached base, so I pointed out the number of outs, the runners on ahead of her, the base stealing situation, etc. She complained "I know all that stuff".

My response ...

With IMDB critics Metascore of 70, and Rotten Tomatoes' Tomatometer Score of 90% and Audience Score of 79%, it doesn't seem to be "very highly underrated" at all.

I don't remember them dubbing out the foul language in the VHS movie that I bought. I remember being surprised at the F-bomb. It was funny as all get out, though. One of my favorite scenes! The whole movie was great. I gotta watch it again.
