The Humanoid ★★★

I was aware that this would be a laughable Star Wars rip-off.

Things I was not prepared for (in order of importance):
1. Barbara Bach as Space Countess Bathory
2. Richard Kiel as both Space Frankenstein and Space Machiste in the same film
3. Space Elves
4. The Golden Child Yoda before there was a Yoda (with a crazy third act reveal)

Admittedly, most of it is a slog through self-important technobabble, but when it just commits to doing its own thing, that thing is wonderful.
