Did you like "Spaceballs", but wished it had been completely devoid of humor? Do you like your movies to have completely unlikeable protagonists? Are you a fan of totally unerotic sexual innuendo and bland partial nudity? Then "Galaxina" is for you!
A totally innocuous hour, which was exactly what I was looking for.
A spoiled 20-something is the subject of a "Trading Places"-like experiment -- cast out of his cozy life, into the care of a woman determined to turn his life around. She fails, but in so failing, succeeds. It's all pretty ridiculous, and wafer-thin. But the acting is good, and sometimes something wafer-thin can be tasty.
I hadn't seen Hellraiser for probably 15 years. A friend has been bugging me to re-watch it, and I'm really glad I succumbed to the peer pressure. This is a really good movie -- not just a really good horror movie. The direction and cinematography are crisp and vital, and the movie chugs along briskly and with purpose. The story is certainly unique, as well, of course.
Honestly, one of the reasons it took me so long to re-watch this…
