MESSAGE FROM SPACE / Toei Company - 1978

Here's another STAR WARS inspired movie that almost boggles the mind with its insane non-stop action and destruction. The peaceful planet of Jillucia has been nearly destroyed by the Gavanas, whose leader takes orders from his mother (played an actor in drag) rather than the mighty Emperor. King Kaiba of Jillucia sends out eight holy seeds into space, each seed is to be received by a chosen one to defend the planet.

I have a sound clip for your approval, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button located there by our Chatty Cathy, NOW, Ralphie The Tarantula!.. Here's a little sample from... MESSAGE FROM SPACE!

Peggy Lee Brennan plays Meia aka Kamikaze, she is one wild space piloting chick, you can hear her constant chatter in the sound clip.

Meia and her pals go out to a forbidden sector to collect those little balls of gold.. Don't ask me!

Vic Morrow is General Garuda, one of the good guys. I ask you, who would ever choose to wear clothes like that?! It's just plain stupid looking.

There are also these bad dudes that look like they just left the BATTLESTAR GALLACTIA set!

Here's the scene where Meia is dancing to the (futuristic?) music and yaks constantly, as heard in the sound clip. I swear, that girl would be a barrel of monkeys in the sack!!

The rebels attack the bad guys and there is a spectacular battle that ensues. That's a pretty nifty view of all the action from the bay window there! Wish I had one of 'em...

The General talks to his little R2D2 pal, what the Hell's going on around here? This is what drives me crazy with so many movies that came out after STAR WARS and ALIEN, nobody had an original thought any more, just rip stuff off!

Welp, the rebels finally make it to their destination, and wouldn't you know it, these guys are what they're there to defend?! I say, shoot 'em!.. JEEZ!!

Anyway, back to blowing the crap out of the bad guys!!.. Go, Meia!

The bad guys lose, and, the galleon of peace floats through space just like in Toho's WAR IN SPACE from 1977. Now I wonder what Eegah!! will have for us on Wednesday...
